Reader request – masculine decor

Posted on Thu, 2 Sep 2010 by KiM

Reader request time! This one comes from Kristín: “My best friend just moved in to his new fab flat, and here’s the best part: He’s letting me decorate it! Ive been searching some picture for inspiration, and I was thinking something masculine in grey-blue colours. I still havn’t found anything though, so I was hoping you might have some pictures?” I don’t think masculine has to be blue and grey so I went through my stash and found some spaces (mostly living rooms and a couple bedrooms) that I personally think would generally appeal to the average guy, that aren’t necessarily bathed in “manly” colours.

masculine and stylish is a hard task, nice inspiration images!

Couldn't love this post more! All the Union Jacks are perfect for my Anglophile boyfriend 🙂 Merci!

Awesome set of photos. The Style at Home photo with the wall of framed pictures is exactly what I need to replicate over my own tv. I have a similar set-up (smaller wall but low tv and bench) and it's been an empty wall for way too long. Time to pick up a big set of matching frames. Now…what to put in them? Maybe some black and white pencil drawings? Fashion illustrations (feminine – yes!) perhaps. Oooh…I just think this is going to be my next project. Thanks for posting that photo – I'm inspired!

I am obsessed with that W shaped coffee table in the 9th(?) picture down! I'm not having any luck searching for one online, any suggestions??

Mega-sofa, mega-flatscreen, coffee table you can put your feet on, nothing upholstered in white and a spillproof floor – just about perfect masculine decor!

Sparky says:

I'm not a guy, but I could live in and dig many of these spaces for my own! :o)

Kristín says:

Wauw, they're amazing!
The pictures are fabulous, I abolutely love them – and more importantly, so does my friend. We are So ready!

Thank you !
