Regardless of your living situation, it’s very important to have a pleasant and tranquil place to retreat to and unwind. It could be just a nook, a spot on the living room sofa or your own bed, but what matters is that it makes you feel good and cosy.
This is the feeling you want to create for both you and your partner, so turning your bedroom into a romantic getaway will give you both the necessary escape from the noise of everyday life. You’ll have a relaxing oasis where you can be uninterrupted in your devotion to one another.
However, sometimes it can get difficult to choose the right style or design for the room so here are several ideas that can help you create a soothing, romantic getaway in your bedroom.
Start by painting your bedroom walls into a perfect background colour. Stick to soft neutrals that will give the room a light and airy feel, but if you want to add some drama or interest, do one wall in a deep, rich colour. It could be a painted pattern or interesting wallpaper. Have fun with the design and let it reflect both your and your partner’s personality.
Window treatments can be used effectively to complement your dream bedroom oasis. If your idea of a romantic getaway means white colour, lots of light and airy linens, consider adding long side draperies to your windows to tie in the look. If you prefer deep colours and a darker ambience, then opt for blinds that will restrain the natural light when you want to. Pick the colour and texture that will match the colours of your bedroom walls, floors and bedding.
Your bed takes centre stage here and it’s the most important element in creating a romantic bedroom getaway. To invoke that romantic feel, just imagine your bed at a gorgeous holiday resort and whatever picture comes to your mind, that’s what you need to recreate. So, it could be anything from soft white linens, plush pastel covers or colourful cushions and blankets. Introducing a variety of fabric and layers will guarantee you get that comfy vibe so frame your bed by adding fabric bed heads with an elegant design delivered in soft textural fabrics.
Candles and Lighting
Nothing speaks romance better than soft lighting in the bedroom. If you love luxurious details, add a chandelier with a dimmer switch. You can also install a semi-flush mount ceiling light fixture that can just as glamorous. If you love your bedside lamps, paint the insides of the lampshades a pale pink as it will give the entire room a rosy glow.
With the right lighting, you can create any atmosphere you want but for a romantic one, candles are a must-have. Even when they’re not lit during the day, they can turn an ordinary room into an elegant, romantic space. At night, lit together with textured lampshades or that luxurious chandelier hanging from the ceiling, you’ll have a perfect romantic setting.
Layers and Texture
If your style is less minimalistic and more boho chic, layering area rugs is the best option for your bedroom floor. By adding a variety of tapestries of different sizes, textures and colours, you can create a visual delight that seems a bit undone.
Soft textures and comforting colours that soothe your eyes and sense of touch are the best way to romance up your bedroom. So, choose different snuggable home accessories, like faux fur cushions, fleece throws, a knit-covered pillow, or a soft duvet, and you’ll be ready to settle in for a cosy night of romance with your loved one!
There are lots of tricks you can use to transform your bedroom into a romantic getaway, but make sure you consider your partner’s style and comfort, so you can both feel welcome in your bedroom retreat.
