Many people assume that interior decorating is a hardcore female centric profession and the services are rendered and appreciated by the female gender as well. That is a completely false assumption!
From a shared home to a bachelor pad, it is rarely to see an interior design which is in male-centric. However, applying masculine elements to the interior design can be very cool, outstanding and unique!
In this post, we want to show you the simple 5 ways thus you can have some ideas if you would like to add masculine elements to your décor. Let's go!
1) Focus on the bold and edgy
If your vision consists of designing a full-on bachelor pad, then go for an edgy and bold look. There is no room for frou-frou accoutrements in this aesthetic. You have to be straight-laced and simple in your articulation. In the image below you will see a living room interior that features an amazing interior that has been designed in similar vein – with a focus on bold and edgy with a simple aesthetic.
2) Plush leather furniture
One of the most mainstream masculine aesthetical interventions seems to be the plush leather couch – and it is not completely off the bat. In fact it is quite a relevant design intervention. As you can see in the image below, the right leather couch in the right color and setting could very well be the focal point of your entire interior.
3) Simple lines
Try to work the interior in bold and edgy lines when you’re adding a masculine vibe to the overall aesthetic. Like in the image below, use clear cut and flowing lines that are bold in intent. It would be great if you use a subdued color scheme with it. The back on white in the image below is truly inspirational.
4）Keep it elegant
When you’re imbruing a masculine vibe in any interior, keep away from the décor. Instead, use inherent design elements to bring out the best in the designs. The image below is a good example of this setting; where the bold black sidewalls with the simple wall-beading are almost periphery to the elegant archway at the end of the hallway.
You cannot put a Tiffany lamp on your bedside table, and call it masculine. So you have to avoid delicate accessorization in all parts of the interior. Instead, you can use straightforward and bold elements like the wall-lamps。
6) A simple but distinct colors
As mentioned above, your interior should have a pretty distinctive color scheme. Try to avoid pastels and go with neutrals. Black and white is always welcome but add a dash of contrast with a vivid color from the palate – and make sure that it doesn’t invoke a feminine aesthetic.
