Have you and your partner just moved in together? Congratulations – that’s a huge step! One of the most challenging parts can be bringing all your stuff together to create a cohesive, yet inexpensive luxury home.
While you’ll want your entire home to reflect your relationship, your bedroom may be the most important part. Having a romantic master bedroom can help bring you and your partner together for some unforgettable nights.
But, you won’t want to rely on Valentine’s Day-esq silk sheets and rose petals when designing your room. Instead, create a room that screams romance 365 days of the year.
Do you want to know what we’re talking about? Keep reading to learn how to create a romantic master bedroom.
Hang String Lights
Harsh, bright lights can begin to detract from the intimate feel you want for your bedroom. While it’s perfectly fine to have bright ceiling lights or lamps, you’ll want some softer lights to use when you want to turn on the romance.
This is where string lights come into play. The lights are small and a lot softer than traditional lamps. Plus, they can be hung around your bed or entangled in a sheer canopy for an encompassing feel.
We recommend opting for white lights and white strings, as adding colors may start to take away from the romance.
Put Out Some Candles
Candles are another soft lighting solution that can create a romantic atmosphere. But not every candle is romantic.
You’ll want to choose candles that go with your romantic bedroom design. Teacup candles can look great in vintage-inspired rooms while lace candles can find a home in almost any bedroom design.
You’ll also want to opt for a romantic scent, such as white gardenia, amber, or vanilla blossom.
Make a DIY Love Board
Some of the best romantic designs for your master bedroom can be interactive.
A DIY love board gives you and your partner a chance to leave cute messages for each other throughout the day – you could thank them for something special they did or remind them why you love them.
It’s simple to make, too! Start with a picture frame and add in a simple background, like a piece of scrapbook paper. Write “I love you because…” on the scrapbook paper and cut it to fit into the frame. Grab some dry erase markers and keep them by the frame for easy use. Voila – you’re all done!
Upgrade Your Furniture
Your furniture is one of the most important elements of your new bedroom. You’ll want to choose the right bed frame, dressers, and bedside tables to complete your look.
While simple furniture can look amazing, modern Italian bedroom furniture can really take this up a notch. The designs are typically contemporary, stylish, and clean-cut giving you the flexibility to design the rest of your bedroom how you want.
Get a Sheepskin Throw
While comfortable sheets and comforters are a big part of any romantic bedroom design, you shouldn’t overlook the impact blankets and throws can have on a room.
A sheepskin throw can do two amazing things to make your bedroom more romantic. First, the soft texture can help awaken your senses up and get you in the mood for a romantic night with your partner. Secondly, it helps to soften the room visually which can make it appear more romantic and inviting.
If you don’t want to use real furs, don’t worry! There are some amazing high-quality faux sheepskin throws that are just as soft as the real thing.
Use Soft Colors
But don’t just rely on that sheepskin throw to soften the room. When choosing furniture, paint colors, and decor, think soft. Bright colors and sharp contrasts might be fun, but it won’t help to create a romantic master bedroom.
Instead, you should choose light colors to form the base of your bedroom. White, cream, light pink, and soft gray are all great colors to start with. Now, you can add some different colors and style elements into the mix with your d?cor, throw pillows and jewelry storage, but you should still keep a small color palette.
Go for a Romantic Headboard
A headboard can more important to a romantic bedroom design than you think. It’s so much more than a piece of wood – it helps to bring the entire room together, and it makes the bed look more inviting (which is vital in any romantic master bedroom).
There are several options to choose from, but velvet or tufted headboards are the most romantic. Be sure to keep your headboard in a soft color, but feel free to play with the overall shape of it. Instead of opting for just a sharp, square headboard, opt for a whimsical or curvy headboard. It’ll make the room look warmer and more inviting.
Tell a Story
Don’t forget to make your master bedroom reflect you and your partner as a couple. There’s nothing more romantic than looking around your room and being reminded of why you love each other and the relationship you have together.
You can hang some of your favorite pictures of you together, put out the teddy bear he bought you for your first Valentine’s Day, or have your anniversary date stitched into a throw pillow.
