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 bedroom is a great example of a room which feels feminine yet provides a generous nod to a masculine style. The campaign style chest is dark and masculine while the tufts on the headboard provide soft feminine details. The lack of pattern keeps the room elegant and simple.
