For most men the primary attraction in the bedroom is the person they are with. They really don’t notice the room. So many bedrooms are bland with white walls and few romantic accessories, no wonder they don't notice. When asked,“What color is your bedroom?” they usually have to ask the wife. So if you are a woman and you want a gorgeous bedroom, then you should have a one, and make it so beautiful that your man will feel like he's stepped into a fantasy. Men like to complain about canopy beds, but they secretly like them. A lot of men squirm at the idea, but a canopy bed shouldn’t threaten a man who is secure in himself. European men don’t mind them, but American men like being macho, a characteristic instilled in them by their football-playing fathers. They always want masculine bedrooms. Ugh, that’s not very sexy. One of those will NEVER be found in my house. Besides my man, while enjoying sports, is more European in his thinking. Thank God! The bedroom should be an escape from the humdrum into fantasy and romance. All bedrooms should have that French boudoir ambiance.
The right bedroom will make you look more beautiful,soft, and huggable. So what colors work best? Blondes look great against lavender or blue, and brunettes look wonderful surrounded by peach, pink, or lavender. Yellow is a terrible color for a bedroom—it makes your skin look sallow. Green isn’t the best either, unless you have rosy cheeks.
Now go out there and add some romantic elements to your bedroom. Everything seen in these pictures can be done, even on a smaller scale. So grab some fabric for draping your four posters, pretty linens, flowers and romantic dressers and chairs and get those bedrooms fit for a Queen! Trust me, the King will like it!!
