Creating a “love den” is all about curating a sensual experience in an intimate space. Here are five romantic bedroom themes that play on the visual, physical, and olfactory, and the six things you’ll need to achieve each look.
The Earthy Bedroom
The laid-back ‘earthy’ bedroom should have plenty of calming colors throughout (think ‘hygge’ look with light and dark browns, and tranquil greens, blues, and yellows). Keep the décor natural and minimal, and consider setting out a few tea cups with hand-picked wildflowers or dried herbs.
Get the look with this exotic Turkish mat from Mad Mats, a blue floral cast iron teapot, Japanese green tea cups, rose essential oil and wood grain aromatic mist diffuser, and blue organic cotton linen sheets.
The Modern Victorian Bedroom
This modern Victorian bedroom theme is soft and feminine, and sets the mood for serious sensuality. The décor should be a mix of nostalgic and contemporary, heavy and light. The bedroom has long been considered a retreat from the outside world as a distinctly private space, so mix it up and make it your own.
Get the look with this sleek beige linen bench from Baxton Studio, organic vintage-inspired linen sheets, coupled Walter Kunze grape leaf frames, romantic golden droplet candelabras, sugared citrus basin candles, and a classic chaise lounge.
The Primal Bedroom
This bedroom theme is distinctly masculine and edgy, and calls out to our inner-primal nature. Heavy furniture (think mahogany wood and leather), coupled with softer faux fur throws and rugs will definitely set off the wilder side of romance.
The Goddess Bedroom
This goddess-inspired bedroom is all about keeping things light, airy, and comfortable. Think silk drapery, satin sheets, and hints of pinks, sea blues, and of course, white, to evoke elements of the sea and the eternal feminine.
The Romantic Love Den
This classically inspired bedroom is a traditional approach to romance, with bold pops of color, hints of gold and red, and above all, texture. After all, sensuality is explored using all the senses, so why limit yourself to a single fabric or feeling?
