A tufted sofa. A vase of fresh flowers. A chandelier. Are these quintessential feminine touches? Perhaps! What about traditional masculine accents such as leather upholstery, rich colors and chrome detailing? Today we ponder the possibility that it‘s not the accents themselves that make living rooms masculine or feminine-it‘s how they are combined with other details to create an overall effect.
We‘re also loving the peach tones of the feminine space in the next featured image. In fact, the layering of peachy hues gives this room a bit of a girly look, despite clean-lined modern accents such as pendant lighting, wall art and a geometric rug.
In recent years the traditional sofa design has undergone somewhat of a revolution. Designers are now seeing the humble sofa as something more than a comfy place to sit on an evening, or as a statement piece to show off in your home. It is now being classed, by some, as a work of art, whilst also being practical and comfy to sit on, as a sofa should be.
