Today's post is a nod to my guy for his birthday! We've been living together for the last couple of months and it's been great. Lots of cooking together, Game of Thrones nights & really just a lot of fun. One of the biggest challenges of sharing a space is finding a shared design aesthetic. I tend to be overtly colorful and girly, he is very modern and simplistic. A match made in design heaven right?! ;)
I'm on a mission to find a good compromise for both of us for the bedroom; something that feels comfortable to us both, yet still allows us to incorporate a little bit of our personal design style. I can imagine any design savvy readers living with a significant other or spouse can relate!
I've pulled a few of my favorite masculine meets feminine designed bedrooms. They are a great balance of femininity and style yet grounded in neutrals and masculine accents.

Just as relationships are all about compromise so is interior design in a shared living space. I love this take on masculine meets feminine decor for a master bedroom.
In our case, Kyle's side is modern meets techy (that red lego looking item is actually a jambox speaker), mine would be shabby chic with a splash of bold pattern.

[hers]: chevron brown pillow // ooh la la pillow // chelsea simple bedside table// turquoise throw blanket // deer antler jewelry holder // turquoise frame //

What's your advice for designing a shared space?
