Can a Dark Color Palette Be Girly?

Good Questions

Q: Hello, I am 18 years old and I am getting ready to move into my first apartment this January. I am constantly looking for ways to decorate and I had two questions for you: One, I was wondering if you guys at Apartment Therapy knew of any good affordable alternatives to a T-back lounge Chair? Also, I love dark, modern looking apartments. Ones with black leather furniture, and grey-painted walls. But I was wondering — do you think that a female can make her apartment color palette dark without making it look masculine? Thanks for your time!
