DESIGNING A MODERN MASCULINE DECOR
There’s a good chance the first interior decorator was a guy, scratching pictures of a glorious hunt on the wall of his cave, trying to show off for his friends.
Masculine spaces are often a mix of textures, with an emphasis on hard, rough, or weathered surfaces. Natural materials such as dark stone and unfinished wood are always the obvious choices for creating a space with a rough-hewn, masculine feel. Brick walls are another perfect fit, adding color as well as texture.
Neutral palettes such as black, grey and white work well in any masculine space. And, given the tendency toward darker tones, pops of color are an important way to break up color blocks. For this role, warm metallics like gold, brass or bronze are always a good way to go.
Art is the perfect finishing touch to any space, and masculine spaces are no exception. Art is one of the easiest ways to add spots of bright color to a moody or neutral space. Gallery walls combining multiple pieces will create eye-catching statement walls while offering opportunities to include other non-traditional wall art. Black and white photography is also a fantastic possibility for spaces with a quieter, more reflective feel.

Just because the room you're decorating is designed to suit a man's tastes, that doesn't mean that your accessories options are limited. Look for pieces that add to the texture of the room, such as stoneware, statues, or pottery. Books are another great choice, particularly older works with interesting or vintage hardcover bindings.
