Romantic bedroom ideas
Romantic bedroom ideas for every home
Create a romantic feel in your bedroom by following a few simple rules. Combine textures such as velvet, satin, leather and faux fur with a show-stopping chandelier or dressing table with mirrored surfaces for a glamorous touch.
A chaise-longue is a beautiful piece of furniture that can add a little vintage style to any room, especially when accessorised with satin cushions and velvet throws. Lighting is key to creating a romantic mood. Why not add fairy lights above or around the bed to make it feel extra special and choose an ornate ceiling fitting so that even a pendant light can add its own sparkle. Fill vases with tactile feathers, twigs or silk flowers and add scented candles for a beautiful but subtle fragrance.
The texture of fabrics can be incredibly seductive - sheer curtains add a fairy-tale romantic feel to the bedroom. Create a canopy above the bed with floaty silks or add a deep-pile carpet or sheepskin rug to enhance the romantic theme.
For a boudoir vibe, dress crisp white bed linen with a faux-fur or velvet throw, mismatched cushions in rich velvets and satin, all just waiting to be reclined on.
Romantic bedroom with classic florals (pictured)
Emphasise the elegant with romantic florals that are more classic than country in inspiration. This stylish bedroom scheme manages to be both patterned and pared-back thanks to the neutral ground on wallpaper and bed linen. Below-dado wood panelling and colour-matched carpet, an ornate yet plain upholstered headboard and crisp white cotton Oxford pillowcases add a hotel-style feel that is effortlessly romantic. The side table with its gothic styling and the rush-seated bench with scallop and barleytwist details are nice quirky touches that turn this bedroom into something very special indeed.
