Get the Look: Hints of Masculine Décor for Your Living Room September 10 2016, 0 Comments
Masculine decors are clean, crisp and functional--something we'd all like to have in our living rooms. Understated and effortless, rooms with this design feel collected despite being less decorated. It moves the vision away from the clutter. It is safe to say, therefore, that this sort of interior suits modern dens and lounges to a tee.
Offering a breathy visual elegance in a serious business, your living room will feel tasteful, creative, with a little bit of nostalgia on the side. And no, it doesn't have to be a bachelor's pad. Carefully curated items can immediately turn your living room's atmosphere into masculine marvel.
Old-world floor lamps are an integral part of a masculine decor. The industrial nature of these lighting objects screams gentleman, reminding one of the era where innovation and technology were humbly starting out as small discoveries. Cast a pair of lamps at either side of the couch and see the difference it makes. It also allows you to muster flexible lighting in your den, whenever you need it.
We like it weathered:
Men loves vintage things. Beneath those coats and jackets is a sentimental heart that values aged objects, like a series of vinyl, a gramophone, a typewriter, or on old lounge chair. To them, the unsightly blemishes are silent symbols of endurance, and it makes a setting more lived in. A trunk case can make a good side table. The skull of a game adds a curious charm. Rethinking objects gives you the opportunity to expand their function. Sometimes, you’d be surprised to discover how they can fit perfectly in your living room décor.
Among the prominent features of a masculine living room is the use of heavy furniture—perhaps, to showcase strength and sturdiness. Thus, this is where wood, metal and thick textiles take place. A leather couch is a masculine decor staple, but you don't want to be limited by that. You can also go for raw wooden tables, metal framed stools, steel accent tables and glistening decors in brass or gold.
Sharp edges, arresting corners:
Don't take a curve here; masculine decors like it strong and edgy. Angles make the room dramatically crisp. To further accentuate the bulky furniture placed inside the pad, decorate it with rectangular shapes in mind. Think bookshelves, angled nesting tables, books for decor and imposing lamp shades. You can easily soften the look by adding a vase filled with flowers, and small glass or ceramic objects.
The masculine interior colours are usually stark and serious: white, black and greys play a dominant role. The reason? These hues can easily be combined with other hues. Go cold with dark tones such as silvery blues, dark greys and frosted midnight. Or you can choose earthy colours, which offers a warm and inviting setting when paired with bright jewel tone for accents.
