How to Feminise a Masculine Room

by Michelle Hall on Oct 9, 2013

If you are moving in with your man, or you have bought the remnants of a bachelor pad, the first you are going to need to do is add a feminine touch. It often seems that men just aren’t as interested in plush furnishing and warm homely colours, they think about the functional aspects of life and the essentials they will need to be comfortable and relaxed in their home.

The last thing you want to do though is completely take over; it’s imperative in a room shared by two people that every room has a sophisticated balance in the décor. Your styles need to seamlessly blend, not stick out like a sore thumb in two separate halves of a room.

Bedding

The first way you can bring a hint of feminism into an existing bachelor pad is to change the bedding. You can buy duvet covers and pillow cases in a more feminine colour such as pink or even a more neutral colour like yellow, that will help brighten the room up.

 If you don’t fancy changing the covers, then think about bringing your own quilt or cushions to throw on top of the bed when it isn’t in use. You can get cushions and pillows in a range of shapes and colours, so choose as many as you want to add a level of feminine luxury to your room.

Walls

Often when you have all the furniture you could ever need, and your sitting room already contains luxurious, but masculine, leather sofas, like those in the Sylvester Oxford's Chesterfield Sofa range, the easiest place to start is with your walls.

A splash of paint to even just one wall in a bright and feminine colour will really make a huge difference to the feel of your room. If you’re not the painting type, then you will find that you can get an incredibly large range of wallpaper colours and styles.

Accessories

If the home you are moving into comes completely furnished and masculine from top to bottom, then the easiest thing to do is accessorise. Candles and flowers are a relatively cheap and easy way to completely transform a room. By placing vases of fresh flowers around your home, you will feel an instant and natural feel of beauty and floral elegance radiating in each room.

Candles can help bring a level of warmth and romance to any room, so scatter some around and light them in the evening. Be sure to blow them out before you go to bed though!

Floors and More

A very simple solution to a masculine room is to buy a big fluffy rug in a nice bright colour. It’s an easy thing to acquire, and can work in any room you choose to put it in.

If you aren’t keen on covering up your floors, then you could purchase some nice floral throws to put on your sofas and chairs, or even a bright table cloth to pop on your kitchen table.
