Romantic Bedroom Decor
by Giorgina Devereaux
If you're looking to add a spark to your love life, incorporate some romantic bedroom decor.
The main focus of romantic decor is to create a special romantic retreat that is comfortable, inviting, and relaxing.
Achieving that romantic feel is not difficult and the end result will be a room that is not only intimate and elegant, but one that appeals to the five senses.
A romantic bedroom should have the perfect combination of color, along with certain furniture pieces, a luxurious bed ensemble, lovely window treatments, subtle lighting, art, a rug, plants, along with other accessories.
Eliminate Clutter: I believe that most of us will agree that a messy
bedroom, well, is very unromantic.
One of the most important tasks that should be tackled to help you on your way to making your bedroom into a romantic getaway is to remove visible clutter.
Consider investing in appropriate storage compartments for papers,
magazines, and any other loose items that are lying around.
Color: A very important factor in helping you create the mood for your romantic bedroom decor is color. Not only does color transform a room, but it has an affect on mood and the color you choose can set the tone for your romantic bedroom.For instance, red colors symbolize passion, energy, and romance while yellow colors are cheerful, sunny, and linked to intellect and creative energy.
For a more romantic tone in your bedroom, consider a purple color. Purple
colors have a powerful relationship with our romantic,
sensual, and reflective sides.
If you prefer calm and soothing colors, then you may want to explore blue and
A neutral color to consider is brown. Brown is a warm color that
characterizes wholesomeness, earthiness, simplicity, and friendliness. It is
linked to taste and sophistication while at the same time is confident and
Furniture: Some excellent furniture pieces for your romantic bedroom decor consist of a comfortable bed, a couple of nightstands, an armoire, and a soft upholstered bed bench.
Bed: The bed is the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom,
and, therefore, should be the focal point.
For a more luxurious and romantic feel in your bedroom, consider a beautiful
four poster bed with a canopy top.
To spice up your four poster bed or another style of bed, you may want to
consider a bed canopy. A bed canopy creates a very romantic look and it is easy
For a regal look, you can place a bed crown above the headboard. Some bed crowns feature antique gold, spiraling scrolls, romantic hearts, gold leafing, flowery scrolls, and mirrored insets. The bed crown also has a removable bar where you can hold panels, scarves, or other sheers as well as pull backs for the fabric.
Nightstand: A couple of nightstands with ample
drawer space provides additional storage, a place to display treasured
photographs, and looks quite exquisite when one is arranged on each side of the
Armoire: If your television seems out of place in your bedroom and is
getting in the way of romance, then consider investing in a television armoire.
Bed Bench: A lovely accent for a romantic bedroom is a soft upholstered bed bench. You can find it in different styles, fabrics, and colors. Some feature a storage compartment as well. It looks fabulous when placed at the foot of the bed and offers additional seating perfect for toasting with champagne.
Bedding Ensemble: The perfect bedding ensemble breathes romance. You can choose from many different bedding ensembles in luxurious and sumptuous fabrics, trims, and details. Romantic bedroom decor definitely calls for satin. This gives the bedroom an elegant flair and the silk fabric feels nice on skin.
Most bedding ensembles include a fitted sheet, a sheet, two pillow cases, a
comforter, and a bed skirt.
Window Treatments: The choice of window treatments is important to
the look and feel of your romantic bedroom decor.
For added elegance, you may want to consider adding a valance that features
beads or fringes.
Lighting: The type of lighting you select for your romantic bedroom plays a significant role in setting a romantic mood.
You may want to consider a
floor lamp that has different lighting options where you can turn the lights on
using independent switches or all together.
Keep in mind that the lighting you opt for should be soft and filtered. You
can also use three-way bulbs in your floor lamp and table lamps, which will give
you different lighting settings.
Candles: Candles have long been associated with romantic settings. Nothing adds more romance than a set of lit candles because they evoke feelings of warmth and sensuality.
You can select from scented or unscented candles and they come in different sizes, shapes, and colors.
Some of the choices you have for scented candles include:
There are also candles that float. A floating candle looks especially romantic because you can add rose petals to the water and the combination of the flickering light against the crystal bowl, along with the shadows it creates is very romantic.
If you have safety concerns with having lighted candles in
your romantic bedroom decor, you may want to consider LED battery operated candles. They
almost look like real candles. You can choose from tapered, pillar, votive, and tealight candles.
You can also find LED candles that float. These candles feature real wax that makes it float, along with an amber LED tealight.
Aromatherapy for the Bedroom: Romantic bedroom
would not be complete without a sweet smelling aroma. Since scent affects mood,
it’s one more fabulous idea to consider. You can sprinkle some scented powder
on your sheets to give them that special fragrance.
Fireplace: Another incredible way to invite more
romance into the bedroom is by incorporating a fireplace.
The beauty about this type of fireplace is that it is
portable, ventless, and you do not have to hassle with installation.
Art/Pictures: For romantic bedroom
decor, you may want
to keep art and pictures to a minimum. Hanging too many things on the walls
makes the room appear cluttered and detract from the romance.
You can also display sculptures or figurines that reflect your style and taste.
Vinyl Lettering: Make a romantic statement in your
bedroom with a vinyl lettering quote.
Here are some ideas for romantic quotes:
You are the One
Only You beneath the Moon and under the Sun
Whether Near to me or Far
It’s no matter, Darling, where you are
I Think of you, Night and Day
Rugs: To add extra warmth and richness to your romantic bedroom decor, place an area rug on the floor. You will be amazed at how much beauty a rug will add. There are many styles, patterns, colors, and sizes to choose from. It is a great way to make your room feel cozier.
Add Plants: Plants, trees, and
flowers give a romantic bedroom a more relaxing and inviting feel because of its
splendid array of lush and vivid colors, which brings to mind images of the
Silk plants are available in the following plants: dracaena, schefflera, cycas palm, ficus, and acanthus.
The silk trees are offered in the following species: palm, birch tree, dracaena, Japanese maple, topiary, bonsai, ming aralia, heliconia, and wild rucus.
Silk flowers are available in the following beautiful flowers: orchids, hydrangeas, tulips, roses, peonies, magnolias, snapdragons, poppies, daisies, and zinnias.
The taller plants add dimension to the room and bring life to a bare corner. You can also choose from a nice selection of planters to complement the rest of your romantic bedroom décor.
Edible Treats: Since chocolate has a reputation for being an aphrodisiac, it’s a popular choice among delightful treats in a romantic setting.
An interesting tidbit is that after chocolate is consumed, it releases
substances, known as, Phenylethylamine and Seratonin.
Turn on the Music: Another great way to set a romantic tone in the bedroom is through music. If possible, try to keep a collection of romantic songs on hand for easy access.
Soft music is very relaxing because of its mellow tones and further enhances the romantic atmosphere.Don’t Forget the Champagne: Another fabulous romantic bedroom decor idea is to include a cordless wine chiller. The great thing about this wine chiller is that it is portable and you can also use it to chill champagne. Not only that, but you can fill it with ice.
Sparkling champagne and a couple of flutes will help complete your romantic setting.
