When you have a beautiful piece on your wall, your mind and emotions relax and go to another place and time. A gorgeous work here will transport you, transform your experience, and set a backdrop to the entire scene.
2. Have a piece with color to enliven the room
Whether this is from an art work on the wall, a throw or a piece of art you place on a table, a piece in crimson or pink will add romance. A crimson throw or cushions will add not only color, but mood to light up the day or night. Colors in this range adds fire to sensuality and improves appetite, and encourages thoughts and feelings of romance. Flowers such as tulips, gerberas or peonies also add to the romantic fire in a home.
3. Add a photograph of picture depicting romance
You can choose a picture of yourself with a partner or a picture of a couple or any scene which means romance to you.
