Interior design can be a sensitive topic for guys. It can seem intimidating and even emasculating for a lot men. But what are the interior design basics for guys? What’s a good starting point?
Consider this: If you put thought and effort into how you dress – and I know you do because you’re reading this blog – then why stop there? Why not put some effort into the environments that you spend so much of your life in?
I’d hazard a guess that your home and/or office could look a little better. Bachelor pad or not, I bet you could use a little guidance.
So, this week we are touching on interior design basics for guys. And we teamed up with interior design guru, Liz Finkelstein, of Mile High Style. Liz works with a range of clients in the Colorado area to create beautiful and livable spaces.
1. Make your bed
[Liz Finkelstein] The room that needs the most help in a man’s house is the master bedroom. Start with a headboard+footboard combo, then remember that bedding should come from a set, the box spring needs a cover, and pillows should be plentiful: a queen mattress requires 4 pillows, a king mattress requires two king-sized pillows and 2 regular pillows.
2. There is nothing wrong with decorative pillows
3. Buy art
4. Lighten up on the wood
