The room decorations in your bedroom can influence how you feel when you come home, wake up, or spend time with that special someone. By including a few romantic bedroom ideas in your master bedroom, you can create a look that reflects your personality and style.
This guide features some of our favorite romantic bedroom ideas, with options to suit everyone’s tastes. Keep reading to get inspired.
How to use these romantic bedroom ideas
If you’re like most people, you’ve looked at more home decor and decorating ideas than you can count, but you probably haven’t used many of them. Whether you’re starting with a new bedroom or modifying an existing bedroom design, the trick is to make a list of things you do and don’t want in your space.
With an ongoing home design list (you might want one for every room), you can implement these romantic bedroom ideas in a way that works for your schedule and budget. For example, if you have a small monthly interior design budget, you might add one thing from your list every month or so.
You can also use some of these ideas to add romantic ambiance to your living room or den. This works well in boho, farmhouse, and Scandi spaces.
Romantic bedroom decorating ideas
Try using your favorite romantic bedroom idea to add a subtle romantic touch to your bedroom. Or consider incorporating multiple ideas together for a total makeover to create your perfect romantic bedroom design.
Set the tone with a velvet tufted bed
Soft layers and textures are a must-have in any romantic bedroom, so set the mood with a velvet tufted bed. You could pick something elegant, like a velvet tufted bed with rhinestone accents, or maybe something more masculine, like a black velvet tufted bed with a nailhead trim.
In either case, a velvet tufted bed frame and headboard will instantly give your bedroom a romantic feel. This is one of those romantic bedroom ideas that you can make work for almost any style, from a farmhouse bedroom to a chic sanctuary.
Add some mood lighting
Mood lighting should be soft, warm, and inviting, creating a romantic atmosphere in any space. Pick the best mood lighting options for your space based on your existing style. Here are some ideas:
- A crystal chandelier with a dimmer switch above the bed or in the center of the room
- A floor lamp with a romantic lampshade or color-changing setting
- LED candles placed around the room
- String lights on your headboard, behind your bed, or around your ceiling line
- Wall sconces flanking your headboard or in the boudoir
Lighting options like these can bring your room ideas to life by casting them (and you) in the right light — literally.
Pick a romantic color palette
For a romantic color scheme, select your favorite soothing and inviting colors. If you’d like to implement a palette, pick four or five colors for your bedroom, including two to three base colors with one or two accent colors. Options like pink, orange, and red as well as warm, earthy tones like brown and tan work well in romantic settings, but there are a variety of other possibilities.
Here are some ideas:
- Bright and airy: White, ivory, beige, pastel pink, and gold
- Mature and sophisticated: White, gray, tan, and navy blue
- Boho jewel tones: Gray, black, emerald green, sapphire blue, and amethyst purple
The best palette for your bedroom will depend on your personality and the type of romantic bedroom ideas you enjoy. Remember to use your base colors (usually neutrals like white, gray, ivory, tan, and black) for the bulk of your space, with splashes of your accent color throughout.
Your palette will help you choose paint colors, furniture, bedding, and all other decor in your bedroom.
Add a mural or accent wall
Wall murals and accent walls can bring large-scale beauty into your bedroom. The key is to choose one of the accent colors from your palette and play with it on an accent wall, typically behind your bed. Alternatively, you could use the ceiling instead of a wall.
You don’t have to be an artist to add a mural or accent wall if you’re comfortable with do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. For example, most people can paint a single solid-toned wall (with the help of YouTube). And if you’d like a mural, DIY peel-and-stick options make it easy and apartment-friendly.
Splurge on your bedding
If your bed doesn’t look inviting, your bedroom isn’t romantic enough. Splurge a little on your bedding — look for soft and cozy blankets, sheets, and pillowcases that make you want to dive into bed. Experiment with textures, like satin sheets or a velvet bedspread, and don’t forget your color palette.
The bed and bedding should be the focal point of your bedroom, so pick something that stands out. For example, if you want to design a bright white bedroom, white bedding is a must. Or if you’d like a luxurious, romantic space, a satin bedding set in wine red or rose pink would work well.
Create texture with soft, cozy elements
Just looking at a bedroom full of soft textures, romantic hues, and draping fabrics will make you want to snuggle up and relax. It’s all just so … romantic. Here are some ways to bring this look into your bedroom:
- Add seating with a comfy, soft pouf or a pillow pile
- Create a faux fur or satin throw pillow arrangement on your bed and other seating
- Drape soft throw blankets over the foot of your bed and other seating, or keep them in a basket
- Hang pastel or white sheer fabrics from a canopy bed or four-poster bed to create a mysterious air
- Lay out a shag or faux fur rug to curl your toes into when you wake up
The best combination of fabrics will depend on your bedroom and design. For example, if you only have space for a few romantic bedroom ideas, you might stick to a few throw blankets and pillows on your bed. But if you have more room, maybe you’ll add a few poufs, a pillow pile, and a draping canopy bed.
Brighten the space with a mirror
Mirrors help make rooms look brighter and larger, and they’re a wonderful addition to your bedroom. Whether you want a dresser mirror or a floor mirror, one large mirror is usually enough. Full-length floor mirrors work well, as they’ll also allow you to check your outfits before leaving each day.
Pay attention to what’s reflected in your mirror and position it accordingly — mirrors will amplify the impact of whatever they’re reflecting. And if you want to combine your mirror with other romantic bedroom ideas, try hanging string lights around it or positioning it to reflect your mood lighting.
