Of course, we realize that the term “romantic” conjures different imagery within our minds’ eyes. Your idea of a romantic bedroom may resemble a room at a French country bed-and-breakfast, complete with views of rolling hills and vineyards.

Perhaps you picture a tropical suite with gentle breezes moving through gauzy sheer curtains. You might summon an enchanting scene from a sultan’s palace, a mysterious Moroccan bedroom filled with incense and candlelight. The color red may be the color that says “romance” to you. In this post, you’ll find style ideas to help you reflect your personal take on romance. If you’re looking for ideas on how to decorate a bedroom for a romantic night, we have those, too!

Sweet romantic bedding with shabby chic charm

A lilac bedroom feels altogether elegant and romantic. Flowers and lace, two staples in classical romantic decor, appear right here in our Victorian Lilac collection. With its delicate ogee pattern and a floral trellis in one intricate, lacy design, this is a great choice for romantic shabby chic bedding. Pair it with crisp white for a relaxed look; try silver and dark wood finishes for the ultimate in elegance.

A Moroccan bedroom is a sexy bedroom

Design a Moroccan bedroom, and you’ll find yourself with a sexy bedroom! A bedroom inspired by places like Casablanca and Marrakesh can’t help but inspire romance. With a Moroccan pattern on the bed and a few lanterns and plush pillows in the room, you’ll turn up the Moroccan vibes in no time. Let’s use Casablanca collection for the Moroccan bedding in this space.

Make a bed with a soft, romantic bedding set

Feather-light and airy, a white bedroom can be romantic, indeed. White romantic bedrooms exist everywhere from shabby chic to coastal luxe and from modern to Moroccan looks. Layers of lace, white sheer curtains stuff of many romantic settings. And after all, when you see a perfectly-made bed dressed in clean, pristine white…well, doesn’t that make you just want to dive right in and mess it up? 😉

Tropical romantic bedding for sultry nights

With the right decor at hand, you can feel as if you’ve transported yourself directly to a steamy tropical locale for an amorous getaway. Create a tropical bedroom that captures the essence of sea breezes and fragrant flowers with Midnight Lotus. Here, blue and white lotus flowers swim against blue ocean waters. Light a few jasmine-scented candles and hang a plant or two to have your very own tropical oasis right at home.

Boho bedding says romance

Soft layer upon layer, an abundance of irresistible textures, diffused light– a boho bedroom spells romance, for sure. It might also feature treasured trinkets and lots of color. This space feels collected over time; it’s simple, inviting, and filled with personal touches. A haven from the outside world, this boho, romantic bed encourages wanderlust, imagination, and exploration.

Romantic red and black bedding for a sultry bedroom 

Transforming your room into a red bedroom is a surefire way to create a romantic setting–and you can do this without paint! Much has been written about the color red and its effects on love and passion, but you still want to ensure that your red bedroom reads as romantic–not tacky. With that in mind, meet Ruby Kilim, our Turkish-inspired pattern rendered in black, cream, and rustic red.

What you need to decorate a bedroom for a romantic night

For a bedroom to inspire romance on date night, Valentine’s Day, or any night (or day!) of the year, fill it with textures, sights, and sounds that spark romance. In addition to our romantic bedding sets, ask yourself: what sights do you want your eyes to hold? What about textures–how do you want the room to feel, literally? Should there be a fragance, and if so, which one?  With a few sensory delights in place, your bedroom will no longer be the place where the laundry is piled up but will transform into the love nest that romantic bedrooms are made of!

2. Candles to light the way

Incense perfumes the air and essential oil misters promote health benefits, but for a romantic Valentine’s evening, you’ll need candles. These offer delicate light, added texture, and the option of fragrance. Set them on dressers and nightstands to diffuse light throughout the room.
