No matter what kind of decor is in your bedroom, a chandelier placed over your bed adds an air of mystery and a feel of romance. A chandelier dripping with crystals and lights that can be dimmed is an elegant piece perfect for a French-themed bedroom; an older, restored, wrought-iron chandelier that you spray painted white looks fresh and pretty in a shabby chic bedroom against a backdrop of crisp linens and fresh flowers.
Dining rooms often have light fixtures positioned from the ceiling. Update your dining room and give it a romantic feel by replacing this light fixture with a chandelier. A soft, small chandelier with lights covered with small shades that you cover yourself with vintage, romantic fabrics gives your dining room a personal touch.
A bathroom may seem like an odd place for a chandelier, but a long, relaxing bath in a lovely bathroom with a claw-foot tub, thick towels, candles and a dimly lit antique chandelier would be a luxurious, romantic and peaceful at-home spa experience. If you don't have a claw-foot tub, you can still get the romantic feel in your bathroom by using lots of soft white on the walls and a chandelier in place of harsh overhead lighting.
A living room is often considered the heart of the home, and is the place where many families gather to relax in the evening. Make your living room a soft, romantic space by using muted colors such as blues, greens, yellows and soft-hued taupes. Cover any hard edges with soft vintage tablecloths. Hang vintage chandeliers over your seating areas so that they provide soft light, but also act as a decorative element. If the chain from which they hang is unsightly or too harsh for your room, wrap the chain in a soft silk, satin or white cotton ribbon.
