The Appeal of Masculine Interiors


Style is about how you edit your possessions and some men have an impeccable home style. Maybe it is the way they organize their belongings because of their unbelievable sense of space or their love for straight lines and angles or the fact that they save their bulky old and worn-out stuff forever. The bottom line is that masculine interiors are more than just interesting. They are rugged yet refined, simplistic yet sophisticated, dark in color yet they stand out under the right light making a strong impact!

There are four elements that always come in mind in a masculine interior: metal, wood, glass and leather.  They are "practical" materials due to their low maintenance, but they are also versatile.  Mix them up with a few "ohh-factor" pieces and you'll get an outstanding result. Moreover, these materials are like a canvas for contrasts. They project a "no-nonsense" identity that defines masculinity!  Glass and mirrors are smooth, sleek but fragile if hit hard. Metal is strong and sometimes has a rough feel to it. Leather is durable, reliable and looks even better with time.  Wood is warm, earthy, familiar and can be given any shape and form.  Need I say more...I don't think so!  It is best to delve into the collection of images below.

Naturally, the range of materials is further enhanced with marble, bricks and concrete for an even more graphic outcome.  All these earthy elements form a stoic palette completing the spectrum of browns, grays and black.  In every case, comfort is the common denominator. Men appreciate comfortable layouts.  Notice the statement lighting fixtures. There are multiple light sources i.e. floor lamps, wall lamps, table lamps, central ceiling lighting or recessed spotlights that all enhance the mysterious ambiance.  There is no unnecessary clutter, no frills; instead every decor element has an artistic twist to it. Different textures in layers come into play with the senses in a continuous juxtaposition - rugs, textiles, wallpapers.
