We all know that when it comes to a bedroom you want it to reflect you and your style, but if you think a little outside of your current box, you can take your dull bedroom and turn it into a sexy retreat that you will love to be in for years to come.
One way you can do this is to use colors, now I’m not talking just any colors; you have to use the right ones. Using light pretty colors will not create a sexy look, you need dark rich colors and textures to give your bedroom that must needed sexy update. Think chocolate, raspberry, apple and violet. Rich colors create a feeling of warmth and can make people feel comfortable and sexy.
Looking to do more than just paint? Try adding some sort of print accessory to your bedroom. I once had a room that was a dark chocolate color and I added a few touches of leopard print. I used it on my window coverings, a couple of throw pillows and a few other accessories like leopard figurines. I also accented the darker room with some off-white so that it wasn’t too dark. It looked like an exotic retreat!
Adding candles and candle sconces in the bedroom can also add to that sexy look. I personally love seeing a deep red bedroom with iron candle sconces on either side of the bed or even a large iron candle holder over the bed; just make sure you are careful with your bedroom activities if you choose to do the latter!
Another great look is a dark purple with black accents. Think a little bit gothic, but not too gothic. Use wall tattoos to create a great lace look on one accent wall with black paint and a little elbow grease. Put your bed against this wall and find some black lace throw pillows to bring in the lace more. You could even drape a swag of black lace over your window to bring it in a little more.
These are just a few sexy ideas for your sexy bedroom redecoration project, are you daring enough to try them?
