Romantic bedding ideas

Bedding has a significant impact on the look and feel of your bedroom.

Romantic bedrooms should use multiple textures and have a limited palette comprised of soft colors.

Suitable colors for the ultimate romantic bedding include:

  • cream / ivory / white
  • taupe
  • soft, blush pink
  • light grey

Best bedding for a romantic bedroom

Simple comforters and quilts are my pick for a romantic bedroom.

They look effective when layered, are easy to wash, and often have a beautiful pattern and texture that creates a romantic and simple look.

Best pillows for a romantic bedroom

Once your bedding is sorted, it’s important to think about pillows.

For a king size bed, you’ll need a combination of

  • euro pillows, 26 by 26 inches
  • standard pillows, 26 by 20 inches OR king sized pillows, 20″ by 36″
  • throw pillows – size varies , but I like12 inches by 20 inches

You’ll want to check out this guide to styling your bed based on the pillow formation you like the best.

Again, keep it simple. Your quilt set will often come with a pillow set. Use it!

Purchase plain euro pillow covers in the same color as your bedding.

Finally a throw pillow (look for lumbar cushions, bolsters, textured accent cushion or accent cushions – they almost have as many names as patterns!), keeping to those key shades to complete the look.

Throws for a romantic bedroom

To complete the look of your bed, just one more thing is needed – a throw or blanket.

Throws provide that textured, layered look that makes your bed look luxurious, welcoming, and of course, romantic!

Bearing in mind that a king bed is 80 inches wide, make sure your throw is at least 90 inches wide, if not longer, so that it fits correctly when draped at the end of the bed. 100 inches is best.

Romantic bedroom lighting ideas

If the lighting in your bedroom is harsh, bright and totally not conducive to romance, you’ll want to modify this through the use of various lighting accessories so you can achieve your romantic bedroom look.

Whether it’s using string lights or table lamps, pick lighting that’s soft and warm.

Romantic bedroom accessories

Finally, starting small is a good idea if the budget is limited and / or you feel overwhelmed with the scale of the transformation.

Think things like:

  • richly scented candles
  • porcelain ring bowls
  • mirrors

Even these small features can make a big difference to a room.
