11 Stunning Photos of Romantic Lighting

February 14th, one day among 364 others that demands a little romance. In preparation for this amorous holiday, I present to you 11 tantalizing, captivating and love-inducing photos of delightfully lit spaces that virtually radiate with romantic appeal.

1. A Wedding at Dusk – Exposed antique string lights are a graceful touch above this wedding reception table. Vintage bulbs cast a beautiful, soft light without a harsh glare.

2. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Finland  – It’s the romantic lighting double whammy. Lie in bed inside these softly lit glass igloos in Kakslauttanen, Finland while you gaze upon the most fascinating light exhibit on earth: the Aurora Borealis. Bam.

4. Let’s Go Glamping! – No, that’s not a typo. I said “Glamping.” You know, glamorous + camping?

5. Float Away – Linger in this multi million dollar basement home that boasts a floating bathtub. LED backlighting on the mirrors and dimmed recessed can lights provide just the right amount of light for a romantic interlude. Floating candles or submersible lights under the tub make it extra-dreamy.
