I have never been an especially "girly" girl, but that does not mean I can't appreciate a more feminine design style. In fact, I decided to create a style board for the sort of feminine bedroom that would appeal to me, just to prove that I could. It is a room full of curves and floral patterns, with pink accents and dove grey walls. I did have to draw the line when it came to the color palette, though. Pastels and soft, muted tones just don't work for me. I prefer bold hues and high contrast -- hence the black and white color scheme with hits of hot pink:

If pink is not for you, the accent color could easily be switched -- lemon yellow, turquoise, or even lavender would be equally good options. I'm not quite ready to change my bedroom décor yet (I have a feeling that my husband would strongly object!), but if I were ever to crave a more feminine boudoir this would be it!
