We’re loving navy paint right now because it is so bold and strong. This paint works well with a formal room, such as an office, or you can use it to give a casual hallway a little attitude. Depending on the size of the space you’re using it in, find the appropriate shade. Be careful not to go too dark.

 This lighter color will add space to a room. Don’t be afraid of it! Light pink isn’t restricted to nurseries anymore. This paint actually goes extremely well with so many patterns, fabrics, and textures. You can really play it up or play it down. Get creative with it.

Lilac also has moved out of the nursery stage. It has the ability to create a soft and sophisticated feel to any room, big or small. It does tend to have a feminine touch, but it’s still a strong paint color. This is one we didn’t expect to love as much as we truly do!

Gray

Coming out of summer, you can keep that feeling in your home with this gray. It’s bright and cheerful and keeps the fresh look all year long. To add to that look, gray paint goes well with any hardware or finishes and white fabrics or touches.

This color is so bright and cheery; it just purely adds happiness. It keeps the room looking young and spirited. Pair it with white to really achieve this feel with a dash of sophistication. It’s the perfect color to use when you want a room to look fun without being too cheesy or overwhelming.

We hope you love these paint colors just as much as we do! Now go update your homes!

How to Achieve Feminine Minimalism

There is a trend that is up and coming and is surely taking over for women. It’s called feminine minimalism. This trend is all about taking minimalism which typically has masculine tones and is seen in men’s homes and switching it up to look classy, elegant, and girly. We are calling it feminine minimalism. If you want to join us on this feminine minimalism train, hop on and continue reading!

Paint

Minimalism itself is very simple and “minimal,” so go for more whites and grays when picking out paint colors and color schemes. To turn it into feminine minimalism, add in a soft blush pink. Also light and bright color palettes give off a very airy, but womanly feel. Simplifying your color palette will show off a more mature side in your home decor.

Hardware

When it comes to hardware, silver shows off a “harder” side. It is much more masculine. We suggest going for gold and brass hardware. It will definitely soften the necessary metals in each room. We also believe brass items tend to add a touch of glamour and luxury. This makes it very girly and totally worth it.

Moulding

The feminine touch can come in when you look at the doors and the moulding in each room. Yes, it’s supposed to be simple, but you can still have girly moulding and have it look simple. Just try not to make it too busy.

Textures

Make sure to include some feminine textures. Certain textures can either make or break a room. When planning for feminine touches, you want items that are going to be cozy and soft. We suggest a shag accent rug, some fur accent pillows, or a wool throw in a pastel. Don’t be afraid to throw in some sequins or velvet for a touch of glam. As long as it is a solid color, it shouldn’t be too overwhelming for minimalism.

Angles

Minimalism is thought of with many angles and sharp points, but sharp points and strict corners actually bring in negative energy. We obviously want to stay away from things of that nature and help bring in positive energy, so take away all those right angles and bring in curvy decor. Use circular furniture/decor items to soften up that masculine harshness. Keep circles in mind and a roundabout attitude when shopping! It may take time to find some of these pieces. (See what we did there…)

Don’t be afraid to use pink! Pink decor pieces mixed with a bit of mid-century furnishings is never too girly. It works and comes off being calmly feminine. Throw in some marble as well if you’d like! Marble tends to add a sort of elegant flair.

We hope our little guide helps and leads you to achieving the perfect feminine minimalism you are wanting!
