If you've been watching closely, this isn't the first time I've written about romantic bedrooms. But this time, the focus isn't so much on spaces that look romantic as on spaces that feel romantic. Each of these bedrooms is clean, lovely, modern, and just a touch luxurious—not frilly, but with a certain something that makes you linger. All of these rooms have enough texture, enough scope for the imagination to draw you in, but also a restful simplicity that invites you to stay. What's more romantic than that?
