Decorating a Space where Feminine and Masculine Meet

Decorating a Space that is both Masculine and Feminine

Decorating a shared space that pleases both genders can be quite the task. Banishing the traditional frills you might see in a feminine space and ensuring that anything remotely man-cave-inclined is nowhere to be found is possible, however. And in this decorating post, I’ll show you how!

The two main elements to consider if you want to find the right balance between masculine and feminine decor are shape and finish. Mixing the right amount of these two is going to result in a space that doesn’t really sway in either direction, but instead feels completely unified.

The hero image in this post is the perfect example of such balance. The industrial stool is masculine in its finish but the curved legs add a feminine touch. The same goes for the desk; the shape is rather structured, clean and masculine, yet the soft finish of steel and glass adds a sense of feminine chic.

The industrial shelf on wheels would be considered masculine, but is balanced out by the feminine bird cage. The lamp is another example of masculine shape but feminine finish. If you get the right mix of these elements in the space, you’re onto a winning look!
