A Gender-Neutral Bed

So I'm an engaged woman now (have been for over six months!) and this period of time before we officially merge our lives together is all about figuring out how exactly we are going to do that. When it comes to bedding, I've always gravitated towards florals prints and pinks in the past, but I have to consider the both of us now and don't want to subject my fiancé to anything overly girly. Thus, I set about creating a more "gender-neutral" set. UO Home always has a great selection of bedding and cute little housewares, but I had to force myself to skip past all the pretty pink things that would normally catch my eye unfortunately.

Instead I went for an ivory-colored base with the Tufted Dot duvet cover (speaking of which, though, that ROSE color??? Major heart eyes) and matching shams, and decided to opt for grayish accents. I figure having white-bedding is a pretty good idea in case I ever want to shoot a flat-lay or something. I couldn't resist a little pom-pom action (sorry, my fiancé will just have to deal!) and also got this cute, hipstery embroidered throw pillow (now sold out) to kind of tie everything together. As a current, trendy item, I got this cheeky "Good Vibes" throw pillow. Can never have enough good vibes!

What do you think? Did I succeed in creating a "gender-neutral" bed?

  1. I think you did really well with a gender neutral bed! I'm always a fan of white or grey bedspreads, I have one from Ikea, and it helps keep my room looking neat even when I don't make my bed.

  5. First of all, Congratulations (albeit a little late) on your engagement. I absolutely love the theme of your bedroom. The selection of pillows & pillow covers is excellent & so also the wall hanging. And yeah, I would say this is a gentle neutral theme. Great job guys :)

  11. Eventhough I'm not engaged or married (and I won't be for quite a while), I always wondered what would be the way to style the bed in a neutral way. You did a great job! I love the style of it.
