Decorating one's house can be quite a daunting task - especially when you must accommodate both male and female design preferences. But, by carefully selecting wall colors and adding a bit of texture, experts suggest that decorating a gender-neutral living space is easy.

"I think men gravitate toward colors that have a bit of grey or brown in them," interior designer Lane Sauve told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. But that doesn't mean women are stuck with slate and beige. Color consultant Becky Barth recommends taking a color, like bright orange, and "smoking it up a bit" to give the shade a more natural tone.

Those who are set on a more feminine wall color should opt for texture when decorating the windows. According to the news source, men enjoy woven shades and rich woods. Installing woven shades and wood blinds can help bring masculinity to a living space.

When designing her home's library, designer Amanda Kyser told House Beautiful magazine that she thought a lot about her husband when decorating the space. "I wanted the room to have a great deal of overlapping rich pattern," she told the news source, adding that she hung wood blinds and had the walls hand-painted in different sheens of charcoal gray and taupe.
