We can’t deny that pink is associated with femininity and that femininity is associated with pink, but that doesn’t mean that we have to buy into it. One can, in fact, create a feminine space without reverting to splashes or even tidal waves of everything from amaranth to tea rose. I’m not saying pink is bad or ugly, but sometimes I wonder if society’s current lust for it is a sign that we women are being asked to revert to girlhood as part of that horrid quest for everlasting youth. So let’s get away from it without sacrificing that XX spirit, shall we?
Here are four overtly feminine bedrooms, all done in different style and in different colors, from blue (shown there) to purple, green, and a room that combines a lot of different colors to make one harmonious whole.
All right, so there’s some pink in this room and the one below, but it’s not screaming at you. The different shades of green dominate here, with white backing them up nicely. And how about that touch of blue in the chair?
I’d call this room ultra-girly, what with the quilt. There’s something very feminine about quilts, no? And the room below, far from being classically feminine, is feminine in the most modern way possible. Very clean and precise, but still pretty.
My favorite, however, is the first room. I don’t think one would have to be afraid of sharing it with a man, a la a very popular post from 2008.
