About this Place
This is a great example of your basic male living space. Dark wood accents, light granite countertops, and a nice mix of industrial and contemporary furniture. We can’t really find anything wrong with this place.
There’s a nice mix of materials with the leather sofa, wood coffee table, and shag rug. He’s kept the color palette neutral, which is a smart choice if you’re unsure of mixing colors. Mix textures and materials in the same color family instead.
There’s plenty of additional lighting thanks to a reading lamp and floor lamp. Again, he did a nice job mixing different lamp styles by keeping the colors similar.
A shuttered media cabinet hides the electronics and he’s added a tall vertical print next to the television unit to balance it out.
A small corner bar is adjacent to both the living room and the kitchen, making entertaining simple.
Well, we did find one thing wrong–no cats on the counters, ok? Otherwise, we like the dark cabinetry and gray subway tile. Both solid, masculine choices.
The bar stools are light micro-suede, which is durable and easy to clean. The bar is a great spot to eat while watching television.
The bedroom is a study in simplicity with a clean lined bed and plain gray bedding. We like that he’s made an effort to hang prints but feel like they’re a little small for the space. Hanging them over the headboard as a pair would be a big improvement.
There’s plenty of storage thanks to a small dresser and shoe rack. Another lamp helps brighten up that side of the room and a plant adds a little color and life to the space.
