Living With A Boy

I’ve been living with my boyfriend and it just occurred to me that it’s mucho masculine.  I have not put any feminine touches to the apartment since I’ve moved in…except maybe an unsuccessful attempt to put this pink Eiffel Tower in our living room.

One day I got home and it was in our bedroom in a far corner.  I admit, it’s a bit much.  I decided to start in the living room since it’s the most used room in our apartment.  My boyfriend did a good job of picking a lot of neutrals and as predicted, there is a lot of brown leather and dark wood.  It makes for a great canvas.  The challenge is to add a few feminine touches to the living room without being too girly.  I found these photos as inspiration.  Most of them are gender neutral with a few pops of a color.  Stay tuned for the updated living room.

      Love the Moroccan poof and the geometric throw blanket.

I love that the furniture is neutral but the blue couch and pillows add pops of color.

 This living room is just so clean and casual which explains our style.

I love all the different shades of grey, the pillows and the pops of purple.

 The artwork and pillows make this ordinarily beige room more vibrant.
