Scarborough House Beautiful Bedrooms

Our Scarborough House bedroom furniture has been really popular lately, Sales have taken off and our customers love their Scarborough House beds – especially the king size beds. Well, when you have such magnificent antique-inspired bed designs and construction, you feel like you’re sleeping in a king’s bed anyway…  so you might as well go for the large and comfy king size!

Scarborough House Canopy King Bed SH-272This is great example of one of our popular Scarborough House beds. The canopy bed is crafted in crotch mahogany with regal brass accents. Scarborough House Fine Furniture creates antique-inspired pieces that are hand-crafted using age-old techniques. The company even makes its own brass hardware to ensure high quality and perfect styling. Scarborough House was founded by an Englishman who was a fine furniture designer and maker. The attention to detail is just as amazing as you’d expect from such a heritage!

Scarborough House Four Poster Bed SH-255Scarborough House is well known for its wood veneers that make each item of furniture a center piece in a room. The fine crotch mahogany on this king size four poster bed shows the level of craftsmanship.  I bet that this bed will become a family heirloom.

Scarborough House King Bed SH-254This is the other Scarborough House king size bed that our customers are loving right now. You can see why. The silhouette is so chic that it will work in any style of bedroom decor, and the handsome crotch mahogany adds a sense of substance and luxury. Scarborough House Chest of Drawers SH-194 We have a large selection of Scarborough House chests of drawers, but this beauty is winning a lot of hearts lately! Crafted in crotch mahogany with brass handles, the chest of drawers is a lovely match for the king beds. The traditional techniques used by the high-quality furniture makers means that the drawers are constructed with good old-fashioned dovetail joinery.  I am curious about how each customer will dress the top of the chest of drawers. A small mirror or vase of flowers on top would be charming. Some small decorative boxes or silver-framed photos would look good too.

Scarborough House Drum Table SH-51As a finishing touch, this Scarborough House drum table is also selling well — for bedrooms, living rooms, entry ways, and really anywhere that you want an exquisite accent table. We have a wide choice of Scarborough House tables to browse, all of them as attractive as this delightful 26-inch-wide round drum table crafted in crotch mahogany with a leather top and opulent brass accents.

But as it is fall and a great time to prepare a cozy and sumptuous bedroom to see us through the winter months ahead, I am pleased that our Scarborough House beds are so popular with our customers. I think that sweet dreams are guaranteed with such elegant bedroom furniture…  What do you think? Which bed is your favorite?

Romantic Bedroom Decor

Vintage Valentine CardWith Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’m inspired to think about romantic bedroom decor.  Of course, romance is in the eye of the beholder. If you’ve just fallen in love then anywhere is romantic… The same goes if you are as happily married as Greg and I are. We celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary this year and we are just as in love as ever. I am still thinking up a romantic surprise for him for Valentine’s Day. (Shh! Don’t tell him!) However, it’s sometimes a challenge to find a quiet space to snuggle up with your sweetheart when you’ve got 8 cats and dogs eager to come snuggle up with you, like Greg and I do. And you know… I wouldn’t change a thing!

I enjoyed looking at the romantic bedroom decor in these photos, and I hope you get some ideas too.

Romantic Bedroom Decor White ROom This beautiful white bedroom is softly seductive and proves that you don’t have to paint a room pink to create a romantic atmosphere! The gauzy draped chairs and pure light set the tone, and a fabulous vintage chandelier adds a sultry and inviting touch. The feather boa in the cat basket on the floor gives me a chuckle. Our adorably mischievous cat Lenny would have a fine time playing with that!

In general, romantic bedroom decor tends to rely on pale or pastel tones – sweet lavender, delicate blue, warm peach, and yes, the very feminine pink! Layering different shades of the same color will give more depth and sophistication to the boudoir. Flowing window treatments and gently distressed furniture add to the sense of comfort.

Romantic bedroom decor with toile de jouy

By New York Interior Designers & Decorators Anthony Baratta LLC

A canopy or four-poster bed always sparks up the romance factor. (We have some gorgeous traditional beds in the gallery, including some by Ambella Home and Jonathan Charles.) Toile de Jouy is a classic choice if you want pattern in your wallpaper or bed linens but prefer to avoid florals. It immediately adds a French accent to your romantic bedroom decor. You don’t have to go as all-out toile as the photo above though.  I think it is delightful but if you prefer a lighter touch…

Romantic Bedroom Decor pink toile This French Country bedroom limits the pretty red toile fabric to the bed linens and breezy drapes, with a few matching plates as wall decorations.

Romantic bedroom decor with mural

A fairy-tale lace bed canopy and soft peachy walls provide the allure in this romantic bedroom decor. The curvy lines of the furniture add to the sensuous mood. Notice the lovely mural too. A cute white pup is optional!
Cherub light
Chalkware Guardian Angel
Cherubs and angels add a sweet note to romantic bedroom decor. The Italian cherub chandelier on the left in our gallery is made from an antique wooden cherub serenading you with a lute. The vintage gilded chalkware angel above dates to around 1950 and as it hails from France, it surely knows the language of love!
Jonathan Charles Leather ChairIf you literally want to add hearts to your bedroom, we rather like the range of new Jonathan Charles heart chairs in the gallery. Crafted in walnut and leather, the chairs add a romantic note without being too fussy. I think this green leather chair would look especially wonderful before a dressing table or vanity.

What is your idea of romantic bedroom decor? Is it about the color scheme, the fabrics, or is there some special accent that makes your heart flutter? Do you have a romantic boudoir? We’d love to see photos, or tell us about it in the comments box below.
