Pillow Talk


I suppose it's that time of year where I love all things gold and shimmery, or perhaps I am simply reverting back to my childhood color preferences. Either way, the pink and gold color combo just gets me all swoony and dreamy.

And what better place to get like that than in the bedroom? Now, before this goes on to sound like a sex talk, I am hear to assure you it's not (aww, shucks). It's more about actually decorating our bedroom. You see, it is bleak, bare, and left wanting. Wanting for some bedroom furniture that isn't made of old wire racks. 

The only thing deflating my wish of a pink and gold Abbeycave is the whole husband thing. Which leads me to something I have always wondered about...

What is your take on decorating your bedroom with your man? Do you pick gender neutral themes and colors, or throw caution to the wind and slap on the pink, floral, and ruffles?

I was surprised to learn the challenges of designing with my husband. "What do you mean, you don't like exactly the same things I do!?" Hello, realty check!

I wrote about it here:

There is definitely a balance to feminine meets masculine, but I know you and your Hubs can do it!

When my husband and I got married (almost 5 years ago) we registered for browns and tans and cremes with maybe some reds throughout the house, our living room, our bedroom, our bathroom. Because I was trying to be so "gender neutral" and thought a guy wouldnt want to live in a feminine decorated house. BUT when we bought our first house almost 2 years ago and were looking into paint colors etc I realized that color is so much more fun AND that he likes it better too, he chose the soft blue for our livingroom with white and red accents, and also liked the robins egg blue-green for our bedroom. I am now not afraid to buy floral prints and decorate with a feminine flair because just because they are men it doesnt mean they don't like living in a home that has a feminine touch to it, I mean they do share it with a Girl :)

I make him put up with decorative pillows, so in return I keep the color palette neutral - light grey and white. It makes the space seem light and airy, which is my aesthetic anyways! Loving the pink, but I know my man would not want that to be where he slept!
