Blending feminine and masculine décor elements creates a balanced room which appeals to various design aesthetics. In our wardrobe, for instance, a pair of jeans with a masculine black jacket will appear more appealing on a woman when paired with a fabulous pair of open toe wedges and a colourful silk blouse. For a man, that same outfit is fantastic with a slim fit pastel French cuffed shirt and patterned tie. The same principles apply in interior design. A balanced room will have elements of both sensibilities. After all, one of the key lessons in design school is the creation of tension and harmony between elements and shapes.

Blending Masculine and Feminine Styles

This room has a blend of masculine and feminine touches. The fireplace and built-in cabinetry are visually bold and angular, yet the furniture has some softness in its shape. The pillows are definitely a feminine touch that give the room balance. This is perfect for a family room!

Colour is an easy way to express the difference between a softer feminine look and a moody and darker masculine look.
