We were born into the world as women, so it makes sense that we want our homes to be as feminine as possible. It doesn’t matter what you identify as or who you live with. If you’re female, this article is perfect for you. Here are eight ways to give your place a touch of femininity:
Plants and Flowers
Put flowers everywhere! Even if they die in two days, there’s no better way than fresh cut flowers on the table or by the window for that burst of color and scent. You can also go for potted plants, but make sure to keep them looking pretty by regularly watering them and trimming the leaves.
Some of the best plants for a feminine interior are orchids and ivy. Orchids come in beautiful colors and add a touch of elegance, while ivy is perfect for adding some greenery and life to your home.
Curtains don’t have to be plain and boring; you can add a touch of femininity to them by adding color. Even if your walls are painted in a deep, dark shade, it doesn’t mean that your curtains need to follow suit. A red curtain would look amazing against the dark paint. If you want something more elegant, go for peacock blue or dusty pink. Or get creative with other colors. But make sure they match with the rest of the room, so everything flows nicely together.
Pastel colors are a way to add a touch of femininity to any room. Soft pink, baby blue, and gentle yellow are all colors that scream femininity. Painting your walls these shades is an easy way to brighten up any room and make it feel more inviting.
The most popular pastel color schemes for the bedroom are rose gold and light blue. Rose gold can be used in conjunction with dark paint or even wallpaper, which provides an alternative to the traditional white or cream color palette offered in most homes. A light blue bedroom is a perfect blend of femininity and sophistication, especially when paired with a crystal chandelier and soft, fluffy bedding.
A woman’s home should be a place of comfort and relaxation, and what better way to achieve that than by using soft furniture? Sofas, chairs, and even bedding can all be made from plush materials that will make you feel cozy and cuddly. Bonus points if your furniture is covered in floral print.
An elegant and clean upholstered furniture piece like a chaise lounge would make the perfect addition to any bedroom for those who love pink and red. Not only is it sleek and stylish, but it can also be used as a bed for those days you need a nap. Or, if you want something more masculine-looking, go for maroon leather.
Home Decor Artwork
Most people don’t realize that wall art doesn’t have to fit within the four corners of your walls; there are other ways to decorate your space with artwork. Clocks and paintings aren’t the only way to jazz up your living room: try adding some chandeliers or even mirrors. And don’t stop at one. Add two or three different pieces to approach each day with a different style.
What’s a room without a rug? Not only do they add some much-needed warmth to a room in the colder months, but they can also be used to make a bold statement. A brightly colored rug is the perfect way to add personality to any room, and it can be used as the foundation for the rest of your decor.
A black and white zigzag rug would look fabulous in a modern living room, while a pink shag rug would be perfect for a bedroom or nursery. Rugs are also a great way to hide imperfections in your flooring, so if you have some areas that need attention, go ahead and add a colorful rug over the top.
Mirrors can make any room feel bigger and more open, and they’re a great way to add some glamour. Try hanging a large mirror above your fireplace or vanity or scattering smaller mirrors around the room.
A gold frame mirror would look fantastic above a rustic dresser, while a silver frame mirror will brighten up any corner and add some elegance to the space. And never underestimate the power of shiny: crystals and mirrors go hand in hand.
Cushions and Throws
Last but not least, cushions and throws can also be used as decor pieces for your home. They’re not just meant for sitting on (although that is certainly an option), but you can also use them as decoration or even as bedding. They make great alternatives to comforters.
Add some colorful floor pillows to your living room so you can lounge around with friends; go for purple with black polka dots if you want something flashy, or go for pink and purple stripes if you prefer something more feminine. Throws are another great option, especially when they’re made with plush materials like faux fur or cashmere. Even your curtains can be transformed into decorative pieces. Add some long red tassels to bring color into the room, or use silk embroidered drapes to fill up an empty wall.
Remember that each room in your home should have its own identity, so mix and match these tips until you find something that works for you. There are many ways to make a space feel inviting and girly without compromising your personal style. So start decorating!
