This weekend J and I finally sold the last piece of our bedroom furniture which means that we will be sleeping on a mattress on the floor, living out of suitcases and working at the dinning room table until we unpack at the new place. While I will miss our beautiful bedroom set, it was just too big and too heavy to move to our new place. Not to mention it didn’t really match our style. Unfortunately we still have a little over a month until we move, so I have been day dreaming of what our new space will look like every time I walk in to our furniture less bedroom.
Since moving in together J and I have been working to define our cohesive interior style. While I lust after white furniture with feminine decor (case in point, the inspiration board I shared last week), J tends to lean toward darker wood and neutral colors. We’ve decided that the best way to achieve our “Masculine Chic” look in the new apartment is to mix and match our styles.
In the bedroom we are balancing the dark wooden furniture J likes, with a neutral quilted headboard that I love. While a bold rug and a pop of pink in a pillow and table lamp play against the manly navy blue of the curtains and throw pillows. By adding a touch of whimsy with a boxed topiary and a nautical print, we think we’ve achieved the perfect look for our new space.
Do you have any advice for combining masculine and feminine styles to achieve a cohesive look? share below!
