There are so many ways that you can make any room feel more romantic, no matter what your personal style may be.

Put away your digital angle finder, because you won’t need it for these projects. If you are looking to transform your current bedroom setup into something far more romantic, here are a few ideas to help get you started.
1. Create a Soft, Romantic Color Pallet
One of the easiest ways to make any bedroom look and feel more romantic is by creating a soft, romantic color pallet. Think light greys, cream and even hints of blush. This can instantly set the tone for your romantic bedroom and give it that romantic feel that you are going for. Soft color pallets are really easy to achieve, and you can still put your personal spin on it. Simply add a few candles and you will have a very cohesive, pulled together look that is ultra-romantic.
2. Old World Romance
Nothing says romance quite like some old-world charm. If you equate romance with being transformed back into another time, then this is a great way to achieve the look you are going for. Soft colors again set the backdrop with gold accents and wall sconces completing the look. Add candles to your wall sconces to really achieve that romantic flair. Of course, the centerpiece to any romantic bedroom retreat should always be a historically-inspired chandelier, right in the middle of the room.
3. Bold Romantic Design
Sometimes romance is conveyed with light, flirty, feminine colors. In other instances, it can be much more bold and dramatic. It all depends on your view of romance. If you are looking for something more bold with your romantic design—deep, bold purples can really help drive this theme, and this feeling home. Accent with an elegant chandelier and some mood lighting and you have a bedroom that is sure to get anyone in the romantic mood.
4. Fun and Flirty
Romantic bedrooms don’t always have to be so serious—they can be fun too. If you want something that is far more upbeat, but still a little romantic, consider a really fun and flirty bedroom design. Florals, pinks and golds can all come together to create and effortlessly chic and romantic bedroom that is sure to impress. After all, shouldn’t romance be fun?
5. Romantic Reds
If there was one color that could truly epitomize the word “romance” it would probably be the color red. So, why not add some red to your bedroom? Red may be a bold color, but there are easy ways to incorporate it into your room without over-doing it, especially if you aren’t willing to commit to red walls. A red headboard, accent stools, chair, lamps or a red throw can all add some pops of this romantic color in your bedroom and really help you set the feel for your space.
6. Dark Romance
Using darker colors with the right mood lighting—thing luxurious, romantic crystal light fixtures, is an easy way to make a room feel much more romantic. Black, dark greys, deep tans and an overall darker color pallet (even consider a dark painted ceiling) can almost instantly take an ordinary room and transform it into something even more extraordinary. Make sure to balance yourreally dark pieces, such as your headboard and accent furniture with a few lighter items, such as bedding to not make the room feel overly dark and you will have a winning combination.
7. Romantic Beds
A romantic bed can really set the mood for an entire romantic room, so it is a great place to start. Canopy beds are the perfect romance piece and they can serve as the focal point of your entire room. If you want to make your canopy bed stand out, consider adding some billowy curtains or drapes along the corners. It will make the bed instantly look romantic and allows you to have even more privacy if you want it.
