Sourcebook: Romantic Style

Style embraces the side of design. Soft textures and colors, a tiny glimmer of light from candles and antique mirrors and, of course, florals all will include a romantic touch to your property. Whether you employ this to one room (might I suggest the bedroom? ) ) Or your entire house, you are going to be feeling more amorous in virtually no time.
