I've never been a big ruffles kinda gal, but lately they have piqued my interest for some reason. I think if you don't go overboard and use them in a tasteful manner they could take on a carefree, flowing, slightly rustic look without making you want to gag.
My husband has always been on board with how I like to decorate, but as I've been thinking more about ruffles lately I wonder if adding them in the mix would just send him over the edge.
I've found some super girly things as well as some more masculine pieces that I think could fit in. Do you think ruffles are strictly a girls kind of decor or have you been able to successfully incorporate them into a man's world as well?
