When it comes to decorating a woman’s apartment, I believe there should be some clear touches of softness, texture and color.  Texture and Color often help to provide interest while also making a creative statement.  In the apartment featured in this video, we actually worked off of a base palette of black and white and then added color.

The dark floors and white walls served as the perfect blank palette.  So what are some of the female touches in the space? First of all the contrast of soft against the hard concrete floors, with the area rug and upholstered sofa finished in a soft fabric as opposed to something harder like leather.  Then we continued with soft elements such as toss pillows and a textured throw.

For color, elements such as artwork and decorative accents can help tell a story.  Look at these beautiful, colorful ceramic pieces, these type of accents can really add a sense of style and elegance to a woman’s apartment.  And don’t forget artwork, so often in male apartment you see framed artwork relating to sports or music, in a woman’s apartment I believe this is the time to incorporate the colorful abstracts.  Don’t think you can afford expensive artwork?  I have purchased some of my favorite pieces from art students graduating from local colleges.

Softness, texture and color, just some of the key elements for decorating a woman’s apartment!!
