As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, Jillian's design for this bedroom blends masculine elements with feminine beauty. The natural wood accent wall and the slate walls make the space seem a bit masculine, but Jillian combats that by adding feminine touches, such as the suede bench at the foot of the bed and the decorative pillows.
This bathroom proves that a black-and-white color scheme doesn't have to be masculine or modern. Black walls and white fixtures make the feminine touches, like a chandelier, drapery around the tub and floral decor stand out. Design by HGTV fan KT Designs.
With an antique mirror and custom window treatments, this guest bedroom is designed to offer the comforts of home but with the luxury of a hotel room. The design mixes feminine elements such as the soft colors and masculine elements like the bold patterns in the area rug.
The palette in this transitional dining room is identical to that of the masculine lounge adjacent to it but with dramatically different results. An ornate chandelier hangs from the dark, dramatic tray ceiling and detailed wainscoting lines the walls for an elegant, feminine design.
This chic home office was designed with both masculine and feminine appeal in mind. Gorgeous linen drapes lined with greek key trim and lamps with plum-colored shades balance out the oversized traditional writing desk desk and mohair armchair chair. Touches of green and bright brass are a constant throughout the space, tying the design together.
"Soft aqua and sepia-tone browns are a favorite combination of mine because they are very flattering for masculine and feminine personalities," southern designer James Farmer says. As seen in this wallpaper and window treatment, "Large patterns like an exaggerated damask and loose floral go so well together.”
To create an elegant, chic master bedroom, designers wanted a wallpaper that is timeless, but unique and not overwhelming, so they chose a masculine, blue and yellow geometric design that anchors the entire bedroom space. they combined it with feminine details to give the space an elegant appeal and created a space that this husband and wife pair are sure to love.
In this formal dining room, designer Vanessa DeLeon achieves an appealing balance between feminine and masculine with a pair of romantic Kravet banquettes in black crushed velvet on the ends, accompanied by eight sturdy leather and antique gold barrel dining chairs.

Designer Will Wick sought to create a cozy, '70s-style retreat that balances masculine and feminine in the master bedroom at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. Wick selected a deep, hunter green for the walls and balanced the shade with lush, cream tones in the headboard, bedding, carpet and drapery. "We pulled it off because this room gets so much light," Wick says.
Architectural designer Matt Dougan used elements like vigas (wooden support beams) and latillas (slender strips of wood) on the ceiling of this living room to add authentic Southwestern charm. Old World rugs were combined with leather furnishings, while Southwestern-print furniture, a hand-carved cantera fireplace and an antler chandelier complete the look. A few subtle floral accessories implement a soft, feminine touch to the masculine space.

In a home located directly opposite the stunning white sand beaches of the western Australian coastline, designer Kristie Hill took a slightly surprising design approach. “Instead of the typical range of blues, we used a warmer pink palette, with pink bedding and accessories in the master bedroom. It helps counteract the dominant timber cladding behind the bed, for a look that is neither feminine nor masculine,” she says. Tip from the designer: “Don’t use too much of the same hue of pink. Change it up a little, Blush pink works beautifully with mustard yellow and emerald green, too.”
The Blehm's master bedroom strikes the perfect balance of masculine and feminine energies. The palette compliments the rest of the house but is decidedly more subtle and conducive to rest. Angela takes risks in her design, but always makes room for the classics. For example, the blue velvet bed is flanked by red geometric night tables but finished with classic crisp white bedding. The homeowner admitted that she has trouble committing to patterned area rugs, therefore she typically uses white.... except for in the master. This one is a rich blue, modern take on an animal print. The master bedroom walls are Benjamin Moore, Cumulous Cloud, as is the master bathroom. That shared color creates consistency throughout their master suite.
