Romantic Room Rejuvenator #1: Fire Up The Foyer

"Home is not only where you hang your hat, but also a creation of your love and attraction to each other," explains Lydia Marks, Principal at the New York-based interior design firm Marks & Frantz and the Set Decorator for the Sex and the City movies. So, make sure it is reflected throughout the house. It will up the romance in each room and translate to added excitement in your sex life.

One idea: Get the right vibes going by placing red flowers in the foyer. According to Denmark-based Neo Feng Shui expert Sagar Bohnstedt, these bright blooms help you release negativity and provide an energetic and romantic surge that can add more passion to your sex life. Also, try to “create dramatic entrances or exits with reflective surfaces like glass, chrome and brass,” suggests Marks. “Nothing says sexy like a little sparkle!” So, supercharge your sex life by placing a mirror in the foyer. It'll make you feel more frisky -- and double as a way to check your "sexy factor" on your way in and out!
