Decorating a ladylike home may seem easy, but it can be trickier than you think. An overly feminine space can come off as young and unsophisticated (and shock male guests). Forgo the bows and lace, and opt for more graphic elements in fun colors and metallics. A classic Eames fiberglass chair gets girly when done in sunny yellow; simple salad servers are feminine when gilded in gold; and Fornasetti displays strong female power on his Plate #95. Add in some black to show your edge, and blast Lykke Li's new album to feel right at home in your new bachelorette pad.  shop-look
