Besides watching the Notebook instead of the Superbowl (Fact), walking around in knee socks and Sookie shorts, and singing showtunes in the shower, one of the joys of living solo means you can deck your dwelling in an explosion of lady colors and lively prints. Boys seem to hate clutter and legit stuff like accent pillows and poufs. All my single ladies, all my single ladies… Buy that faux fur throw. Because before you know it, you’ll be trapped like a rat with some wet blanket dude insisting upon browns and muddy, constipated greens and beiges. Bring on the chintz, toile, country french, floral, PINK, ticking stripe, leopard print, chevron, ikat, and pop art!
