Ambient lighting is the easiest way to set a romantic atmosphere. Here are few ways varying your lighting can help up the romance in your nest:

  1. Use candles to incorporate an invigorating smell, add mood lighting, and make any meal special. Seriously, who doesn’t love a candlelit dinner or movie night?
  2. Drape white Christmas lights over a mirror, hanging artwork or shelves to create a magical focal point in any space.
  3. Don’t want to replace your current lighting solutions? Not to worry, purchase bulbs with a lower wattage to create a softer lighting and to create a romantic glow.

2. Add texture.

Incorporate textile décor like fur rugs, fuzzy blankets, textured pillows, etc. Interesting textures will not only create a comfortable and luxurious design, but it will encourage touching. Who doesn’t like to cuddle in the winter months?

3. Decorate with sentiment.
