But, there is hope. I have seen some incredibly tasteful rooms geared toward the sophisticated gentleman, or even just the man that has graduated beyond his post-college, bachelor pad. The over the top rooms are cool, no doubt, but you can still add just a few masculine items in a room so the peonies, pastels and gold/silver accents don't overwhelm. Here's to the boys!
Notice the industrial touches in the hanging pendant and coffee table.
Office is masculine and feminine. This just screams intelligence, money and class.
Framed maps have grown in popularity.
It doesn't have to be all dark...men also love simple lines, modern and white/metal combinations. This kitchen by Timothy Haynes and Kevin Roberts has retro icebox hardware, super sleek and tall stainless fridges, and is done in all white. Perfect for the modern man that wants a little old world.
Even just one strong piece in a room can appeal to both sexes. Let's face it, men don't like dainty furniture.
Very chic with gray accent wall set against white.
Double soaking tubs, interior shutters and stone floor. Simple and warm without being overbearing. You know they would revel in this space feeling like they were a roman god in their Tuscan villa.
This is about as rich and manly explorer as it gets! Robert Redford, Daniel Craig, Leo---are you there???
