Clever lighting or sexy lingerie isn’t the only way to bring romance into the bedroom. This set of subtle pink, stone-washed cotton bedding comes with a 130 thread count and intricate quilting details, promising to feel luxuriously soft on skin while adding an alluringly amorous aura to the bedroom.

4. Scented candle by Bella Freud Parfum
Nothing sets the tone for a romantic tête-à-tête quite like a scented candle. We’re partial to Bella Freud’s hot red offering, both for its stunning exterior and its sensual tuberose, amber and sandalwood scent.

5. Faux fur pillow by Nordstrom At Home
Cuddle up and get cozy with this heart-shaped pillow in a gorgeous deep burgundy hue. Its soft, furry texture makes it extremely huggable, and when placed against lighter coloured couches, it’ll provide a beautiful layer of contrast.

6. Sculptural art by Pottery Barn
If you’re a fan of clean, minimalist interiors, this piece has your name written all over it. From its cursive script to its burnished gold finish, this is one sexy way to say “I love you” in French. Bonus points for how versatile it is—wherever you decide to put it on display, it’ll definitely be one attention-grabbing home decor accent.
