Always keep in mind proportion and balance. When hanging prints above your sofa or bed leave enough space between the sofa/bed and the framed prints. But do not leave to much space as well.
Your prints should not be wider than the sofa/bed because you do not want the prints to overwhelm the furniture instead of enhancing it.
A good general rule for hanging your prints is that the bottom of your frame should hang 8 inches to 10 inches above the back of the sofa. But when hanging a grouping of frames you can play around with the measurements a little. Just make sure that you hang it low so that you can still have all your prints in eye view even when sitting down.
Create balance by hanging your prints at least 2 to 3 cm the length of the sofa. If you want to create a bigger piece you can hang two prints together to create one bigger piece. When hanging a group of prints be sure to leave at least 2 inches to 5 inches between each frame to achieve even spacing. Be sure not to hang your frames too far apart as it will only look disjointed and as if you are trying to fill the wall, when what you want to achieve is a cohesive look, almost like each of the pieces are connected to one another.
So if you are that fair maiden, trying to figure out how to bring more feminine accents into your home without making it look all too girly? Then read on to find out just how to achieve that.
A feminine space is often associated with soft, muted colors like light pastels and creamy neutrals. But not all ladies are soft and muted, some like it bright and bold. So if pink is your choice for an accent color and you like it bold. A bright fuchsia would be perfect. This rich pink shade will make your space feel bright and uplifting in any season. If bold pink is not your thing then a vivid purple also works well in feminine spaces.
Now for a softer and muted look colors like mint-green, blue, light gray, rosy pink, barely beige and soft yellow are perfect for a soft creamy and delicate feminine look and feel. You can break up all this lightness with a small burst of coral, fuschia, hot pink or even lipstick red.
Then Add Your Patterns And Textures
Florals, botanicals and woven fabrics work well in feminine spaces as they bring a softness to the space. Small prints like polka dots also work well in feminine spaces.
When it comes to textures try and use a mix of textures because how you use them will determine the look and feel of the space. So, for instance you can combine hard with soft, shiny with matte, and smooth with coarse to create a more flawless look.
The combination of textures that you use will add depth to your space so do not be afraid to use different materials like cotton, silk, velvet, linen, chenille, and cashmere. And yes to ruffles as it is the ultimate feminine texture.
Followed By Your Furniture And Decor Accessories
Decor accessories play a huge role in feminine interiors. When it comes to creating a feminine aesthetic, a lot can be done with crystal, gilt, mirror, and marble as it just adds a touch of feminine glamour. Try to incorporate warm metallics such as rose gold or copper to create a glamorous and warm space.
Furniture in a feminine space should include decorative feminine flourishes, like button tufting and carved details. You do not necessarily have to have this on every piece in your space as it might be too overwhelming
Do not overcrowd the space with furniture simply because they look great each piece needs to have a purpose.
Feminine rooms tend to include more decorative pieces, not just for practical purposes but also for aesthetic reasons. A vase of fresh flowers on a dressing table or night stand, decorative throw pillows and wall art makes for great decorative accessories in a feminime space.
