Spice up your Space // His + Hers

September 2, 2014

my-paradissi-pbright-bedroom-sara-landstedt We’re in full-on nesting mode here at Casa de Pepper, and now that I’m outnumbered by dudes (little brother moved in to our new place with us last weekend!), I’m paying more attention to making our apartment a good blend of masculine classics softened with quirky feminine details.

After stumbling across some gorgeous images over here, it occurred to me that being drawn to such a variety of styles can make finding the perfect balance a little bit tricky… Can you relate?

I could honestly go either way on the decor of the two lovely bedrooms below, but it seems like there must be a way that I can find a sweet spot right in between.

I’ll keep you posted on how things come together, and until then – would love to hear your ideas on mixing up a look that is equal parts bold and beautiful!

Ps. – Which of these rooms could you see most in your own home?

    Soft and girly, but I’m selfish ;) I also like the idea of a statement wall, painted in deep navy, while keeping everything else light and airy :)

      LOVE the idea of a navy wall… We just recovered our couch in navy velvet, and a corresponding swatch of paint would be super pretty. :)

    I can see that soft and girly design in my home, it’s more like me. I don’t like a lot the dark wall colours, prefer something white or peach :)

      Warm peach-y tones are SO pretty on walls… There is a coral wall that I keep seeing on Pinterest, and I can’t get it out of my mind!

    Most of the stuff is our home is totally neutral. My husband is oddly picky about our design and that it isn’t too feminine, so I like to use a ton of shine and metallics which stay neutral but let me still be girly ;)

      I remember you saying that he loves having a say in things and I think that is awesome! For the record – We are seriously relying on our Grandiflora pillowcases to add a little universally-loved glam to our new couch. :) XOXO

    I can SO relate. My boyfriend and I are in the process of buying our first home and I keep panicking about our decor because we won’t have a lot to spend and I want our house to not look like we just threw a bunch of stuff in it. Maybe start with a color palate and work from there? xo

      So exciting and major congrats! I learned the hard way on our first go around that it’s MUCH better to be patient and save up for the pieces that you’ll love for longer… We kind of threw things together in our first place, and then kept feeling compelled to re-do things! (Which totally stinks and is counterintuitive to the whole “saving money” thing in the first place!) Picking a color-palate first is a GREAT call. ;)
