Whether you’re moving in with your significant other or just aren’t specialized on home decorthat skew too far one way, having both masculine and feminine touches in your home is key. The problem is, it can be a bit tricky to blend the two styles together.
That’s why STAGED has created this simple guide that will leave you with three easy tips for adding both masculine and feminine pieces into your new home.
1. Go for delicately masculine accents or one heavily masculine statement piece. A few of our favorite styles lean more toward the masculine side of things; think heavy industrial and woodsy rustic. When picking out which pieces to use within your home, think about pulling from the lighter, more delicate sides of these styles. For example, check out or Ashley Sofa.
2. Create a gallery wall. Gallery walls offer the opportunity to add a variety of art into your home. Not only can you mix and match the frames—placing bulkier, darker pieces beside more delicate gold lines—but the art itself can be a combination of soft paintings and rougher photographs.
3. Use a neutral color palette. A neutral color palette allows you to add in a greater variety of pieces and styles. It’s subtle enough to work with just about every design aesthetic and never leaves you feeling overwhelmed. None of these colors have any association with gender, and they feel both masculine and feminine at the same time. This also gives you the opportunity to use trending gray!
