Romantic Bedroom Design Ideas

Gone are the days of scattering rose petals across the bed and lighting a thousand tealight candles around the bedroom to create a romantic mood. Now, we prefer to take on a much more sophisticated ambience. Here are a few romantic bedroom design ideas on the lead up to Valentine’s Day.

Mood Lighting

Lighting is so important in any room, but particularly when creating a romantic setting. Dimmer switches provide the perfect solution to your lighting needs, allowing you to bring the lights ‘down low’. But, if you’re not lucky enough to have dimmer switches, then try adding a bedside lamp, pendant lights or a floor lamp which can be activated independently. You could also switch the bulbs to something a bit dimmer for extra moody vibes.

French Style Furniture

Create ‘boudoir’ vibes by adding French style furniture to your bedroom space. With its elegant and curvaceous design, this style lends itself to romantic and whimsical spaces. Our ‘Mulberry Lane Provence 4 Drawer Chest’ is a perfect example of French chic. With its elegant legs, curvy shape and whitewashed finish, it is the perfect piece to bring a touch of romance to your bedroom.

Luxurious Textiles

Romance is all about passion and luxury. And what better way to create the scene than with lavish fabrics and textiles? We’re thinking thick, heavy curtains adorning the windows, textured headboards, fur throws strewn across the bed and velvet cushions scattered over the pillows. Don’t be shy with prints either. Play about with patterns, colours and textures to create that layered, luxurious look.

Talking of patterns, nothing says ‘romance’ like flowers. Add some floral prints to your textiles to add a little drama and whimsical charm. What’s more, you could add a vase of real flowers to the room for extra romantic points. Go subtle with lilies or a stem of eucalyptus. Or spell it out with some deep, red roses.

We hope our design ideas will help bring a little romance to your bedroom this Valentine’s Day. And not a tacky teddy or love heart in sight! Who said “romance is dead”?
