It has now arrived. You’ve got a date for your long-distance significant other to pay you a call! It’s time to start thinking about what you and your partner would be doing.
You’re just going to end up at your house. If it’s either for a quick nap, a nightcap, or whatever… Near up and intimate, the location must maintain the romantic mood of the date to the very end.
Here are the best ideas for creating an intimate environment in your home, even though “your home” is a space in a shared house. Of course, there is no one “right” way to do this, so choose what appeals to you. When you’re giving your space a sexy makeover, keep in mind what your partner would want as well. And have a good time.
Clear The Area
First and foremost, you would need a clean working environment. Dust and clutter aren’t conducive to a romantic mood.
Sweep the surfaces with a microfiber cloth after vacuuming the floors to remove pollen. After that, return it to its proper location. Place some junk that doesn’t fit somewhere in these convenient plastic bins. You may show them, conceal them under your bed, or put them on a bookshelf.
Have you ever found that the most heart-stopping love scenes in the film take place in low, dim lighting? We’re going for “butterfly-inducing” in your space as well.
This influence can be achieved in a variety of ways. You might buy low-wattage light bulbs like these or simply drape a scarf over a lampshade in your bed.
If you want to create a more spicy atmosphere, sprinkle tea light candles (or, for smaller spaces, battery-powered tea lights) throughout the building.
Fairy lights are ideal for creating a more soft and lighthearted mood. In your home, hang these behind tulle curtains or a bed canopy.
You may even hang them above your bed on the wall. Even better, pair them with these high-quality fake flowers for a guaranteed romantic environment.
By the way, if you’re seeing your long-distance companion during the day, you should always up the passion factor by hanging thick drapes over the windows and then using the above suggestions.
The Sound of Music
If you intend to watch a movie together, gentle music in the background is important. It will set the tone, make you relax, and even carry back memories of when you first met.
You’ll want the music to be more complex and enveloping than simply blasting from your screen. Investing in a decent wireless speaker is also important.
If you want a basic wireless speaker that does its job well, this little guy is a good option. It wins on all sides, with its crystal clear voice, broad range, and shockingly loudness.
If you want to keep the romantic aesthetic going even when it comes to the appearance of your wireless mic, this is the one. It’s small and unobtrusive, with a rose gold finish, and it can be combined with something, from an iPhone to a micro SD card to an MP3 player.
Maybe you’ve been wanting to start your exclusive vinyl collection for a long time. Mix this retro player with a few albums that remind you of your long-distance significant other. Plus, the crackling sound of a carefully chosen album overflowing a dimly lit space shouts “romance.”
Let the walls look good
If you tend to think of your room as ‘cold’ or ‘empty,’ this may be due to getting so much negative space on the walls. You just don’t allow this feeling to hang in the back of your date’s mind.
Simple art prints that complement the aesthetic of your space will provide a fast fix and a romantic atmosphere.
To hide bareness, hang a tapestry or print on the wall (or cracks, stains, and unfortunate wallpaper choices in a rented place). Furthermore, it will add color (similar to the stencil below), which will smooth and light up the overall interior design.
Set aside a day (or even just an afternoon) to build a lovely accent wall in your room. Warm colors like coral, maroon, rose, or terracotta can add a romantic touch to your project. Creating an accent wall may also be a relaxing experience to help you relax until your long-awaited date.
A note of caution: although hanging pictures of your friends and family is a cute concept, it might not function well for creating a romantic atmosphere. If you ever want to look at a snapshot of your mother when you and your date are getting hot and heavy? No, I don’t think so.
High-quality textiles are important for creating a romantic, sensual environment in your home. High-thread linens, fluffy throws, and thick blankets would all pleasure your touch. Don’t you want to cover yourself in the blanket?
Aside from that, textiles are widely regarded as a sure-fire way to soften the appearance of the interior. Keep the color scheme consistent in the space, but don’t be afraid to play with patterns and materials. A chunky knit throw will stand out against the other textiles in your space.
If you don’t want to do a full redesign of your linens wardrobe, go for the bare essentials – a good bedding kit. Since we’re going for romance, it’s best to avoid patterns and instead focus on rich warm colors like burgundy, terracotta, copper, and so on.
Bed Canopies and Space Dividers
There are many reasons to have a room divider to build a romantic atmosphere in the room.
For starters, it will assist you in concealing an area of the space that does not go with the romantic theme. Perhaps it’s an old radiator or your desk, which holds an imaginative jumble of items you don’t have anywhere else to place.
Second, if you share your living space with a roommate, it will provide you with a sense of privacy in the room. In limited spaces, it is often simpler to construct a sensual mood. In a larger area, a room divider will help you create a little nook for only the two of you.
Bed canopies have the same function as bed canopies in that they provide a private and enveloping feeling in your space. Tulle or some other light material will turn your ordinary bed into a refined romantic haven.
The trick to maintaining a romantic experience is to appeal to all of your senses, including your sense of smell. But, after you’ve taken care of anything else, it’s time for passion to fill the breeze.
Scented candles are the perfect place to start because they appear so romantic in a dark setting.
Choose a plug-in air freshener if you want the smell of your choosing to easily disperse around the space before the conference. It works even better than a scented candle and also has a large selection of fragrances to pick from. However, don’t keep it on for too long or the scent can get too powerful.
For a more hands-on solution, boil potpourri in a pot for a delicate flowery scent. This hack can also help warm up the atmosphere if you’re visiting your long-distance significant other in the winter.
In terms of perfume, flower scents such as rose, jasmine, cherry blossom, or honeysuckle are commonly thought to evoke romance. Men are often believed to be drawn to sweeter scents such as vanilla or orange. But, if you can’t make up your mind, this might be a good place to proceed.
Any bed, no matter how small or large, minimalist or crammed with trinkets, can be turned into a romantic, cozy space for a long-distance pair. Can you have any suggestions based on your own experience?
