5 ways I add feminine touches to our home

May’s theme for #romancingthehome is “Embracing the Feminine”; it was so much more challenging to write about than I thought it would be, which is why it has taken me so long to write something!

I have eventually settled on sharing how I add feminine touches to our home; I will admit that I didn’t really see them until I actually looked! Although maybe if I had asked Hubs he would have been able to point them out quicker.

An arched dresser, turned legs on the dining room table, curved arms on chandeliers… I find that the rounded edges work to balance out the harder lines of other furniture, which I feel are more masculine.

Pastels. Yes, I said it. I didn’t even realise that I liked pastels until I looked at my home. Specifically blues and pinks. Of course you all know my curved, blue hutch. If one could fall in love with a piece of furniture, this would be it. I have touches of blue all through the house, by ways of paint, pillows, blankets and vases.

Soft furnishings are imperative. Vintage blankets combined with new pillows, soft fluffy throws over comfy couches, a white candlewick quilt added to your bedding are all ways to add some feminine touches to the home.

The amount is up to you; one candle on your desk, or a mountain of books and ornaments stacked on a floor to ceiling book shelf – the choice is yours!

First prize is, of course, fresh flowers. I wish that I could buy fresh every week, but unfortunately I can’t. And so, we have reached my little secret problem: faux florals. I have too many of them, I just can’t help myself. I have them shoved in places all over our home. Some days I look around and I wonder how Hubs puts up with all of them. Then I wonder if he is just so used to them that he doesn’t see them anymore. Who knows? All I know is that flowers will always add a bit of something-something to a space and that you can never, ever have too many!

That’s it. Those are just a few tips on how I inject some femininity into our household – I hope that they are useful to  you!
