Romantic Bedroom Getaway   Part 2

When mixing these different furniture pieces, it is important to keep one element a constant
throughout the room. This could be a similar style, color or scale. By doing so, you will be able to pull it all together much more easily by adding a few finishing touches and accessories.


Accessories that Set the Stage

Luxurious pillows, throws, duvets and other accessories can help create an atmosphere of romance. “Opulence is key in developing a romantic theme,” says Mononen. He suggests combining high thread count sheets with richly textured fabrics like silks, tapestries, linens and velvets for bedding. Fresh flowers, candles, chandeliers, and beaded lamps or pillows can also add extravagance.

“For a truly romantic look, try using a chandelier over the bed or over each nightstand for an elegant and unique lighting option,” says Mononen.

When choosing fabrics, paint and accessories, Mononen recommends using shades of color that depict your personal style. “Think about colors that look good on you or colors of clothing you typically have in your closet. If you choose colors you typically like to wear in clothing, you’ll probably also enjoy incorporating that color palette into your bedroom décor,” he adds.

Trend: Bedrooms Become Grand

“With larger master suites being built in new homes, we’re getting more requests for additional furniture pieces in our bedroom collections,” says Mononen. People are looking for pieces that are both stylish and functional because they are spending more time in their bedrooms.

“Armoires for televisions, wardrobes, trunks and seven- or nine-drawer dressers are very popular choices because they take up more space in larger rooms and provide a lot of storage,” he said. Even nightstands are larger, providing more storage space with drawers and shelves.

Another new trend in bedroom furniture is higher headboards and lower footboards on platform beds. These updated proportions work in today’s larger bedrooms and allow for easy late night television watching. For example, the Barrington bedroom collection by Arhaus features a platform bed with a stately headboard and footboard paneled with antiqued cherry and walnut.
