Masculine Meets Feminine Style


A friend of mine is having a hard time agreeing with her husband on the interior style of their home.  She wants a place that reflects her love of all things glamorous, while he desires a bit more of a rugged, rustic vibe.  It can be so hard to successfully combine two disparate tastes, so I was really excited to show her the work of Liz Caan.  I'm a big fan of Liz Caan Designs, aside from some seriously fabulous projects, they also happen to be some of the nicest people I've ever "virtually" met. As for my friend, she can't wait to show her husband these stunning images. The abundance of wood and dark leather surfaces here is right up his ally, and yet there's still plenty of girlish touches throughout to satisfy her own taste.  Most inspiring of all, is how beautifully they seem to co-exist!

  19. Masculine meets feminine tends to be my style, so I really love what's going on in these rooms above. It's such a great mix! Although, one day I do hope to have a room that is glamorous and all girly (like a closet or office)!

  20. I love all of your "style stalkings", and this was sort of like an extra one -- it added a bit of "ZHUSH" to today's blog reads!

  22. great combo! My favorite image is the third one down, it has everything to do with those beautiful beams! I just did a post about combining masculine and feminine in pattern, it really creates a better space when you mix the two!
