Designing Romantic Vibes in the Bedroom

December 20, 2015

Today I am talking about romance in the bedroom…bow chicka wow wow. But seriously… get your mind out of the gutter, because I am referring to design.

Please overlook all the wrinkles in the sheets…ain’t nobody got time to iron their sheets(unless your are wealthy enough to have maids).You should feel honored that I even made the bed for you.

While my bedroom still needs a lot of work, I wanted to share with you what I have done so far.  Here is what the room looked like when we first moved in.

It is so easy to overlook your bedroom. After all, you and your partner are probably the only ones who see it. Am I right?

But your surroundings can affect your mood. Don’t you want your room to be your haven- away from the rest of the stressful world?

That is why, I tried my best to design romantic vibes in the bedroom. Most of my house has more of a simple and modern feel, but I really wanted the bedroom to feel a bit more feminine and “fancy”.

The main living spaces all have light and flowy window treatments, but in the bedrooms I went with silk, gray blackout drapes not only because I thought they evoked a bit of romance, but because we have so much natural light in our bedroom…. I wanted to be able to darken the room for lazy Sundays (sleeping in and watching movies in bed).

I also have a love for Hollywood Regency pieces. I established some of that feel with my mirrored furniture and tufted headboard.

But to keep the vibe calming and not overly stimulating, I stuck with neutral colors and simple patterns.

Eventually, I would like to paint the walls…but I have so many other home improvement projects going on, that I can live with this color for now.

I must say, for all of you wanting to start a family, this design has been quite conducive to baby-making (considering I have spent the past 2 years of my life knocked up).

    1. I really like the vibe you’ve created in your bedroom. Can you tell me how tall your lamps are on the bedside tables? I’m on the hunt for lamps and perplexed about height. Yours look perfect!

    1. Hi Erica, not only is this bedroom lovely, but speaks of calm and peace to me as well. I’m a tad jealous that you picked up all those pieces from so many different sources and made them all work so well together. Well done.
