Colour your room in romantic tones
Your choice of colour really sets the mood. Here is how you can use colour to create romance in the bedroom.
Red is the colour of passion, so it’s one of our favourite romantic bedroom ideas for couples. It’s perfect for a feature wall, or for accessories such as rugs, wall art or the shades of bedside lamps.
Whites and pale neutrals
An all white bedroom or a room in shades of cream is incredibly sophisticated. Create that French romantic look by adding a white dressing table or oak bedroom furniture and sheer, translucent curtains. Or choose a more contemporary look with white sliding door wardrobes that make the room feel larger and store the clutter out of sight.
Blue is a favourite colour for bedrooms, because there are so many shades to choose from – from fashionable teal tones to deep ocean blues. Break up expanses of blue with white bedroom furniture, a gorgeous grey rug, or a bright yellow cushion or two.
Green is such a relaxing and calming colour for your bedroom sanctuary. Add splashes of green through feature wallpaper, lush houseplants, a velvet cuddle chair or botanical wall art.
Grey is soft, subtle and very on trend. In a variety of warm and cool tones, it’s a great choice for the contemporary bedroom. Combine grey with blues, whites or pinks for a chic, romantic colour scheme. Pale furniture against grey walls is elegantly romantic.
Cheeky pinks and pastel hues
Pastel tones are perfect for creating romance in the bedroom, and the latest trend is to be bold with them. Try different colours on different walls, with a touch of colour and pattern clash to add to the funky, retro vibe. A statement vintage clock or mirror can only add to the charm.
