Feminine and Flirty

Being a girly girl, I love lots of pinks, reds and purples. Glamorous detail such as; fur throws, animal print and metallic accessories. All these things make a home sweet home for me. Incorporating a room or two to the leading lady is a must in my opinion. Sorry gentleman but I am sure you understand. What’s that saying, “A happy wife means a happy life.” Just saying! A woman needs a place to unwind and be delighted in all the beautiful things around her.

Ladies when creating your feminine sanctuary remember these key elements:

1. Use soft to the touch fabrics.

2. Choose your color palette wisely. For example, pinks, purples or pastels.

3. Use pretty accessories (metallics are everything). Kind-of-like the jewelry in the room.

4. Choose furniture with curves down to the legs.

Here are some images to help you along the way.
