Gentleman’s Lounge and Man Cave Interior Designs
Man Cave – Gentlemen, boys, fellas, this post goes out to you. Many times, we, dudes, like to go to a place that is our own, a place where there are no doilies, frilly curtains, and definitely, no color palettes of pinks and blushes.
What many would refer to as a “man-cave”, I’m going to go ahead and call a gentleman’s lounge.
The gentleman’s lounge is place where the boys can relax, reassert their masculinity by chest-bumping or whatever it is that men do, but more importantly, the gentleman’s lounge is all about living in style.
Today’s modern man is a fashionable fellow who is well-groomed, reads GQ, is up-to-date on the latest technology, and has a pretty bad-ass bachelor pad. The time has come to trade in those posters of Farrah Fawcett, the model cars, and comic books. Men, buck up and create the perfect livable lair.
First, we start with color. Guys, it’s pretty easy, grab some masculine color options in the neutral family–chocolate browns, steel grays, classic blacks. Keep the color palette simple and sophisticated. Next, choosing the right decor is key. Tweed, plaid, leather, and heavy fabrics are all the rage for today’s man. Focus the room around statement pieces, i.e. the couch.
Let’s be serious, the couch is the most important part of the lounge as it will be where you will be spending a lot of your time. Throw in some great twists of vintage pieces doubling as furniture using trunks as coffee tables, vintage safes as side tables, and accent pieces like a great Persian rug, telescope, and other old-world trinkets. Kick back, put your feet up, and enjoy you manly manor.
