Intimacy killers

Passion can not happen when there is laundry pilled in the corner, bills on the desk in the room and little Billy’s latest drawing of a dinosaur hanging on the wall? Clutter is an intimacy killer. When your both feeling frisky and ready to make love you jump onto the bed suddenly feeling Fido’s toy sticking in your back and a stack of unpaid bills staring you in the face, you just kicked romance out the door. Couples who are able to have a room that is free of distraction, have a much better chance at having happier sex life. Humans get distracted easily, especially women when it comes to sex, they already have many things on their mind and the last thing they need is more to distract them while trying to make love to their spouse.

4. New pictures are a must, take down family photos in a room and but up pictures of romantic getaways, the outdoors, gardens. You can even take some of your favorite photos of places you have been and blow them up and frame them or turn them into canvas phots and place it on your wall.

5. Bedding is a perfect way to add in texture, color and comfort. Add in some fun pillows, with textures and colors, creating a brand new bed. One way to save on cost is to get a solid color duvet, stuff your favorite blanket in it and then get a bunch of colorful pillows as the accents. If your creative and want to buy an old head board and paint it an accent color that would add character to the room as well.

The soft glow of candles

Candles provide a romantic feel to any space. The warmth and glow from a candle can set the mood as well as add a soft glow to the body and face. Harsh lights or no lights at all can be a mood killer. When looking for candles as well as candle holders keep in mind that you can mount them on a wall as well as free standing or simply bunch a few on a table or mantel. Scented candles add a fresh fragrance to the room such as sandalwood, vanilla and birch. Cinnamon is another lovely scent that can add a little spice to the air.
