Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a site that promotes designers and their projects from around the world. I'm so happy to be asked to guest post about romantic lighting today here at My Interior Design Diary. When setting the mood in interior design, lighting is a key element and your friend. Not all romantic lighting is dripping with crystals, but crystals do add that diamond-like sparkle that just says romance. Here are some of my favorite examples of romantic lighting. Enjoy!
A combination of lighting options is the best choice for romantically lighting a room. A sparkly chandelier on a dimmer, along with bedside lamps that have low wattage bulbs combine to create the perfect romantic lighting.
If one chandelier is romantic, two are even better. Love the idea of hanging two small chandeliers flanking the bed for ambient and reading light.
I love these chandeliers with a drum shade enclosing a crystal chandelier. The lighting it creates is so soft and romantic.
This capiz shell pendant has a modern pattern that is romantic yet modern. This light would work in a bedroom, entry or dining room.
Pretty vintage boudoir lamps with pleated shades trimmed in beads are romantic and nostalgic. With a feminine feeling, these romantic lights would look pretty on bedside tables as well as a vanity, making them perfect for a shabby chic bedroom design.
Moroccan lanterns cast a lovely, romantic light when hung next to the bed. A single lantern above each nightstand would be very pretty.
Pink scalloped shades on the glass and crystal chandelier add a touch of Paris, which in my book equals romance. How intriguing that the shades are not on every light!
Don't forget romantic lighting for the bath or powder room. Wall sconces hung with crystals and small chandeliers are perfect romantic lighting choices for bathroom designs.
