It’s so important to keep our homes not only functional for our families but romantic and cozy for us adults too. I think so many of us were so used to child-proof homes that we forgot how important it is for us to be able to have a cozy romantic retreat for the adults too! Are you one of those people?
Well, there are easy ways to keep some areas of your living space romantic and cozy for you both as well. I think it’s especially important with Valentine’s Day right around the corner as well.
OK, Let’s talk about romantic candles first – I know what you are thinking – how can I have candles in my home with children running around? Well, you can and safely too! Candles definitely can help create a romantic mood but they can also add a beautiful ambiance to your living space.
If you remember these simple safety rules when using candles, you will be able to enjoy them.
- Always store candles in a safe place to keep kids and pets from getting hold of them and
- Place a burning candle out of harm’s way from anything that might catch fire
It’s pretty simple and straightforward. Using scented candles always creates a wonderful atmosphere of romance. Both the atmospheric lighting and the sensual scents, candles are the perfect way to quickly create a wonderfully cozy and romantic space you both can enjoy.
Some of my favorite candles are those I can design myself. I love being able to choose images that have meaning aside from their amazing fragrances.
I was able to design these candles easily! I chose my image from Shutterfly’s photo library or you can upload your own personal photo too.

Being able to design candles is a totally different experience than buying store-bought stock candles. Printing a romantic image of your loved one on a candle is the perfect way to keep those fires burning!
Pillows, Pillows and More Pillows!
Using decorative pillows in your space is the perfect way to remind us just how important our loved ones are. I love designing pillows that tell the world and my family just how much they are loved.
My best friend made us this lovely picture pillow from Shutterfly for the holidays, and I love it!
I recently had these two other pillows made as well. They have transformed my bed into a romantic dreamy and cozy retreat!
If those pillows don’t say romance, nothing does!
Using decorative pillows is the perfect way to say I love you forever.
Personalize Framed Artwork & Canvas Prints
I love using other decorative elements in my home to create a romantic cozy retreat. I discovered this gorgeous framed personalized artwork and turned it into something I knew my hubby would love too. Adding the year of your marriage, engagement, or any other special date is a romantic gesture to be loved and cherished.
There are so many creative ways to create framed art to remind your family just what you mean to them.
Freezing special moments in time is the perfect way to add both cozy and romantic to your living space.
I hope you got a few ideas on how to add some romantic and cozy decorative elements into your home that will last forever. It’s so important to keep your home safe and at the same time cozy and romantic for the both of you!
