Visual Vavoom…My Three Favorite Romantic Room Touches

Today I'm sharing my 3 favorite ways to add some visual vavoom in a most romantic way to any room…
Let's start with my utmost favorite pretty much 5 minute fix. Can you guess what that might be?...
Fresh flowers. Yes I know...what a shock:~)

I was super excited to find the most beautiful selection of roses this week at Whole Foods for just $10 a dozen. In lots of different colors and shades too! Considering the fact that Valentine's Day is coming in just a couple of weeks you know that the price is going be be sky high, so I treated myself to few dozen this week...

Combining florals in jars with books is so simple yet lovely, and a grand sized container such as the olive bucket makes a dramatic statement. That's all you need sometimes...
Florals are definitely the easiest way to add romance to any room, setting or vignette. When the price and selection are this great I use real. When it's not, I either clip native florals from my travels while walking the dogs (on vacant lots or fields) or I use faux. Quality silk faux is what I prefer...
Ruffles speak romance... 
Yes…I just may have pulled every ruffle stop in the book on this one, but you don't have to be drastic and a light layering will do the trick…
I know that you are going to ask, so the bedding is from the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture line and is called the Petticoat Collection. Very dreamy (no pun intended:~)...
I'm completely obsessed with chandeliers and have a long standing love affair with crystal beading. Give me a room with a good chandelier and a place to sit and I'm good to go!...
I've been fortunate to come across some beauties over the years that I have been selling vintage and antiques, and to me they are the jewelry in a room. A little glitz. Romantic room candy...
A room is not complete without gorgeous lighting, so when I work on any space I make sure to save some budget for that purpose. Above are some of my favorite finds, all vintage European pieces with macaroni beading...
You can find reproduction pieces similar to these authentics, or be on the lookout if you frequent tag sales, flea markets and vintage shops...

just stunning! I'm not that much of a ruffle guy - but you got me with the fresh roses and chandeliers! I'm right there with you! I adore them both - and enjoy living with them (though not dusting all the prisms throughout the house - ah, for the days of full-time help!)
