Whether you're a guy who wants to tidy up his place, or you're a woman who is trying to get her boyfriend to grow up, it's likely time to makeover the bachelor pad. Although empty pizza boxes and video games are acceptable when you're living in a fraternity house, this look is immature when you're a young (or not so young) professional.
- Exude your personality: "Choose a few interesting decorative accessories that show your passions in a modern way," writes Alessandra Wood of the Huffington Post. "Are you a tech geek? Display a vintage radio or flip alarm clock. If you love music, perhaps create a gallery wall of your favorite album covers. Love to travel? Pick out throw pillows that incorporate patterns from your favorite countries."
- Select an appropriate color palette: Ever since you were a child, you've probably had standard blue décor. We're taught at a young age that blue exudes masculinity, while pink is feminine. However, in today's day and age you don't simply have to adhere to a blue color palette in your home if you have a Y chromosome. For instance, the metallic trend has been very popular in 2014, and is also gender neutral. Bronze accents can be quite rustic if used correctly. Additionally, you can never go wrong with black home decor, which is both sleek and sexy.
