Romantic bedrooms should be tasteful and elegant, yet understated.
When decorating a bedroom, it is easy to get carried away. This is especially true when trying to achieve a romantic look. There is a fine line between romantic bedrooms and a tacky bedroom. A bedroom does not have look like a room in the Playboy Mansion, or a honeymoon suite in a seedy Poconos motel in order to be romantic.
Romantic bedrooms can either be modern in decor, or timeless and classic.
When selecting romantic bedrooms furnishing, which includes everything from pillowcases and drapes to dressers, it is important to remember the three basic elements of design. These elements are form, texture, and color. Form refers the shape of an object; round, square, symmetrical, asymmetrical and so forth. Texture refers to the feel of an object; smooth, fluffy, rough, and so forth. Color is self-explanatory, and can also include the type of finish, such as shiny, metallic, dull, or matte.
In order to create romantic bedrooms, all of these design elements must be in harmony with each other. This is especially true in regards to color, since certain contrasting colors can actually make people feel anxious or uneasy. For instance, just because a pillowcase has ruffles, there is no need to incorporate ruffles into every other furnishing within the room.
Often, it is the accessories one chooses for a bedroom which can put the ultimate finishing touch on a romantic look. Again, the key is to not go overboard. The favorite accessories for the romantic bedrooms include candles, dried flowers, and decorative throw pillows. They are wonderful in moderation, but too much can destroy the mood of the room.
