don't get me wrong. i love a feminine, whimsical, girly, room more than the next person.
i mean, what's not to love? florals,...over-cushioning,.. candles,...floatiness.
unless, you're a bloke. or you live with one.
satisfy your 'fem' urges,..have your girly room,..but make everyone *else* (tee hee) happy by grounding that room with a touch of masculinity.
personally, my favourite look is feminine space with a masculine edge.
this is really easy to achieve.
for example, pair this stunning missoni 'avalon' rug;
with a masculine coffee table of a similar shape.. like this gorgeous mark tuckey one...
or,..have a gorgeous, feminine couch like this,...
but juxtapose it with a pair of old, worn in leather armchairs.
(i adore these chairs,..and am on the hunt for a pair of my own)..
you can also add a masculine edge to your space by adding anything 'industrial', ordered in form, or with a typographical edge.
vintage steel,..cushions with numbers or letters on them,...rows or collections of objects with similar colours and shapes.
ground your space, people,.. it will make everybody happy!
