10 romantic traditional master bedroom ideas that you can do yourself! Luxury master bedrooms are always something I love to create. Climbing into a cozy romantic bed is so relaxing at night.  If you search google and pinterest, there are  so many gorgeous bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, you name it – they got it! You have an idea in your head and then you start tearing out magazine pictures and pinning thousands of images on pinterest and before you know it, your idea is lost in space.

Romantic master bedroom ideas

Today I am sharing romantic traditional master bedroom ideas (I am also including affiliate links to shop the headboards) that I picked for different reasons while working on our master bedroom makeover. Each one has an element I love and for me, breaking it down to the tiny detail and then jotting that idea on a piece of paper, keeps my thoughts organized in my scrambled head.

The cute Mr and Mrs. pillows above are perfect for a couples romantic master bedroom as a fun twist on luxury. Why not make it a little personal with a cute saying on the pillows?

Many of you ask, “what color should I paint my master bedroom?”

If you want a bedroom that you can swap out linens by season and home decor, I suggest a more neutral color like neutral white or light gray.

Calm! That is what the room above says to me. I love the textured rug above and next week when I share our master reveal (I hope it’s next week), you will see the ivory textured rug we chose. It came yesterday and it’s a keeper! Below, I love the wooden wall treatment. I am still considering what kind of wall treatment to do. My old bedroom had a chair rail that I didn’t want to remove so working with that has proved to be difficult but perhaps a molding detail on the top of of our wall will work.

Romantic Bedroom Ideas for Her

I love the color coral as it looks feminine and chic. Floral pillow prints are always a nice feminine touch as well. Paired mirrors above the headboard for a lower wall (like we have) are a great way to add a bit of glam to the room. The molding tends to shorten the height of the wall below and I love how the paired mirrors work together.

I originally loved the idea of a chandelier in our master bedroom but unfortunately, our bed is fairly high and the ceiling height doesn’t allow for a fun dangling chandelier.  I haven’t figured that part out yet. I think chandeliers add a sense of romance and character to the room that cannot be achieved any other way. The ceilings in rooms always seem so boring to me and a chandelier always diverts my attention away from the ceiling.

I chose this image below because of the dark walls and layered bedding. The texture of the blanket and quilt are gorgeous and coordinated nicely with plain cotton styled drapery. I also love the brass accents as well. I am hoping to add brass in our room by use of either inexpensive frames or spray painted molding.

Romantic Bedroom Ideas for Married Couples

I love the idea of three wall art pieces above the headboard below. Romantic master bedrooms for couples can be tricky especially if you both have an input on design. Many times one spouse does not care but if  they do care, then going with a neutral color like gray is an easy way to create a luxury bedroom that works for both of you. 

Another question that I get a lot is “how do I make my master bedroom cozy?” I personally love to layer bedding with varying textures to create warmth and coziness. Romantic traditional master bedroom ideas featuring a variety of textured wall space (wall art, flowing sheer curtains) help keep the room feeling full and cozy.

Small Master Bedroom Ideas

I love the DIY gold molding that I added to my master bedroom below. This was such a fun project! This master bedroom was small in my old house so I added the gold square frames to the wall to help add definition and character to the space helping it feel larger. If you search small master bedroom ideas on google, there are many articles that share how to make a bedroom feel larger.

Dark navy walls! I painted our master dark navy and almost had a heart attack applying it because it was so dark but I am so glad I took a chance and went with it! It makes such an impact on the room.

The layered cozy bedding ensemble is why I chose the room below. It’s always nice to have a few pretty beds to look at while arranging your own bed. Layered pillows and blankets and lots of them! Creating a romantic master bedroom is easy to do with lots of pillows!

An abundance of wall frames helps this bed from feeling lost on the wall. I am not sure I would have the patience to hang all these frames.

Had to sneak this room makeover in too. It’s not a master bedroom (it’s a teenage girls bedroom) but it has so many great decorating ideas that could be used in a master bedroom. The mirror happens to be one of my favorite pieces.

  1. what color paint did you use on the walls on the second to last bedroom. (Layered cozy bedding ensemble)

  2. Do you have a source where to buy the bedspreads? Particularly the one with 3 pieces of art above headboard. Gray painted walls.

    1. I would love to know where to purchase the grey bedspread with white decorative ball edge. If you could share that would be great! This would be perfect in the plan for re-decorating my master!
      Thank you- Brooke

      1. You can try checking with the source for that image. This is not a picture of my home ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. I would love to know this too as well as the multi colored bedding with the brass accents in the room. Please share.

  3. Also curious about where you found the layered cozy bedding (with the darker walls). I particularly love the multi colored topper

  4. I was also interested in the bedding you found. Particularly the layered look with the “dark walls”. I love the multicolored topper
