Adding a Splash of Romantic Whimsy to the Bedroom

Adding a Splash of Romantic Whimsy to the Bedroom

There's typically a very fine line that separates successful ultra-romantic design and the slightly over the top variety. This type of whimsy is also subjective so what is perfect to some can be too much for others. Putting that all aside, there's nothing wrong with infusing a splash of romance into everyday design.

The bedroom is a good room room to try embrace your more romantic tendencies. It's already a space that lends itself to soft, restful, cool colors. To take the room to that next level is actually quite simple. If you don't have the classic four poster bed — hang silky curtains from your ceiling at each corner of the bed to get the illusion of a canopy. Pick soft colors for the walls and don't skimp on fun and interesting artwork and accessories because they make a huge impact - this look is not about stripped down surfaces, but rather the layering of color, texture and pattern. Take some risks and chances are you'll end up with a fun and interesting room with that perfect splash of romantic whimsy.
