The bedroom is one of the most logical places for romance-inspired decor. These themes can range from subtle to blatantly suggestive, depending upon the personal tastes of the parties involved. A romantic bedroom design is a project you can share with your significant other to create an atmosphere that can enhance and inspire the time you spend together in your bedroom.

Honeymoon Suite

Replicate the suite you shared on your honeymoon. This is an ideal way to keep those memories alive throughout your marriage. Even if you can't replicate it exactly, create a similar atmosphere by using similar paint colors and bedding. Incorporate new elements, such as favorite silk or satin sheets and bedding, candles and displays of photographs from your wedding.

Favorite Vacation Spot

Recall a favorite vacation spot where you and your significant other had fun and were able to experience a romantic getaway. Incorporate decorations that bring back memories of that vacation spot, including regional motifs that enhance the feel of the place where you spent time together away from the responsibilities of day-to-day living.

French Style

The French are known for romance. A French style bedroom is an ideal way to add a touch of romance and elegance to your bedroom. Incorporate intricately carved furnishings, a canopy bed and soft regal colors like beige and maroon, cream or gold and red. Add soft lighting and dark floral arrangements to set the mood. If you've got a large window, set up a small table and two chairs to mimic a small outdoor cafe, perfect for sharing coffee or a light breakfast the morning after.

Art Gallery

Cover your walls with romantic art work. Highlight the art with soft, low-watt lighting. Coordinate bedding, candles, a music or jewelry box and floral arrangements to complement the art work. Tasteful renderings of couples embracing, a bust of Venus or Cupid and romantic settings are some of the artistic ideas you can use to bring your romantic bedroom to life.
