Bed Rooms in India, where i live...are more or less devoid of the romance element. Reasons could be many but the main hindrance is the MYTH :  Such Bedrooms are both impractical and heavy on your pocket. So let your imagination fly high and wild..every wish of yours shall be realised.

1.Four posted bed is Back!!

Look at these better words would justify the effect of a simple four post bed has on the mood of bedroom decor. Its traditional chic interpreted in a minimalistic way.

2. Table/Bedside lamps.

lets just stop drooling by saying " bed lamps are the jewelry of your bedroom."

3. Headboard/ Wall paper

In this section its a tight rope walk to use romantic patterns,soft linen and at the same time not making your guy feel like he is in his girlfriends room..:)! so the rule is to use them but in moderation.
Wall paper - one feature wall .  Pattern - subtle.   Head board - Stick to nudes,plums and hard colours.

You can very well use your creativity when You are at it.As seen in the second pic..adding a headboard is always easy, cheap and can be done in many ways. :)

4. Bed Linen.

     Bed linen is where you can splurge.. because you are under these sheets atleast 8 hrs everyday. Go for cottons,satins and rich comforting silks..In India we dont lack any fabric choices finest of the fine fabrics are created here..!!
      Here I want to stress the importance of a nice comforter/duvet/quilt ,many of us are oblivious to the fact tht all comforters will not make u warm or hot in summers.. there are comforters for both summers and winters..just different choice of materials. So as a rule stop using Bed spreads as makeshift blankets.!

                                         Staying Intense,
