Whether you can sing it with me or not, interiors dominated by women have the uncanny ability to charm guests, making them feel welcome and at ease. Calling cards of female presence—some pink blooms here, some positive phrases there, perhaps even some leopard prints from time to time—gesture toward a light touch about the room, with special attention to delicate detailing. Here are some well-decorated bachelorette pads that carry a ladylike persona from the second you look at them, living proof that feminine intuition translates into an eye for design. Or at least, so we’d like to believe. Image via Recently.

Something about this space rings Carrie-style cosmopolitan. We imagine it’s probably to do with the fuchsia dresser, leopard-print chair, coral bag and, oh, those fabulous shoes.

We love an encouraging piece of art as a centerpiece to a feminine living room. Using the central area of the house as a way to build and sustain good energy is not just a great practice, but a way to pay it forward to all the women in your life who are “wonderful” and deserve to relax in your cozy, well-designed space.

There’s no denying the strange pull we feel for the combination of all the feminine elements we’ve been talking about here: stripes, patterns, vibrant hues of pink and purple, a beautiful curved metal side table, and—of course—fresh cut roses.
