Don’t limit the loved-up feeling to just the bedroom. Here’s how you can induce some romance in your living room as well
Why focus all the love only in the bedroom? A romantic feeling can be induced in the living room too. There are a few tricks through which this can be achieved.
Choose mellow colours and pastels for a soothing atmosphere. Baby pinks, soft turquoise and even creamy neutrals all contribute towards a calm, comfortable feel.
Ensure there is plenty of light sweeping into the space – floor to ceiling windows covered with soft, billowing curtains induce a great amount of dreaminess. When it comes to fixtures, invest in floor lamps that throw mellow lights and ceiling lights that cast a dim glow.
Invest in super soft and warm furniture and accessories. Think along the lines of leather or suede sofas and furry throws for an extra plush feel.

While some might opt for pastels and even creamy beiges, a brick wall with a raw finish is also a good idea. Pile up the space with warm rugs, enveloping couches, divans and top them with furry throws for a sinkable space for two.
If you don’t have a spacious living room, that’s fine too. It’s easier to create a cuddly vibe in a smaller space. Experiment with a two-tone pastel colour scheme. Bring in an L-shaped sofa, pile it on with cushions, throws and voila, you have yourself a loved-up space.
If you’re unafraid of using colours, go ahead and splash some red on the walls for a dramatic living room. Get a monotone scheme going with red chairs, tables and even matching carpets and curtains. Light candles around for a scene bathed in soft light.
