Gender-Neutral Decorating Ideas

Assisted Living: Decorating With the Boyfriend

Assisted Living group member Quindalina is moving in with her boyfriend and having a decorating dilemma:

The problem is, how do you design a flat (especially the bedroom) in a neutral style without being too girly? Right now my studio is full of pastels and bright colors: pink bedspread, flowers, pictures everywhere, etc. We are moving next week and I'm thinking of design ideas and color themes but cannot come up with anything, help!!

I think my 10 Gender-Neutral Bedrooms post should help any of you who are moving in with a boyfriend or husband. You should find a lot of inspiration and tips there. But I think the thing to remember is that balance is key. Anything overly masculine or feminine won't do — say goodbye to florals and pink and tell him to put his sports memorabilia in storage. Mix clean-lined shapes with more delicate ones. Pair deep hues with pops of livelier color in accessories. As for the wardrobe, check out these tips on sharing a closet with your man. And here are some gender-neutral nightstands, too — make sure you have one for each side of the bed.

Does anyone else have any tips for decorating a shared home? Have a question of your own? Be sure to post photos and tales to the Assisted Living group!
