You may not let your guy take over decorating projects in your home, but taking decorating cues from his outfits will add neatness and create a clean-lined look. Check it out:
Today men’s dress shirts come in all sorts of stripes. Everything from the classic dress stripe to shadowed, multi-colored, and checked stripes will add a slightly preppy look to furniture and elongate walls. We like them in clean shades of blue and green.
The Casual Side
Migrating away from the plain white tee, men’s casual wear is now all about nautical or awning stripes, flannel hunting jackets, and faded denim. Bring a touch of these laid back patterns into your space for a cool & comfortable ambiance.
Tied ‘n True
This fall and winter, wool is the choice fabric for men’s ties— a modern spin on traditional silks. Just as a tie made with houndstooth, plaid, herringbone, or tweed in tones of navy and gray is the ideal seasonal accent for a shirt, so is a pillow of the same patterns on a couch.
Men’s suiting has modernized itself recently, with pieces in interesting patterns that can be broken up or worn together. The traditional pinstripe power suit is showing up in richer textures, and patterns like checks and subtle plaids are now appropriate for work and play. Try a navy pin stripe on a large piece of furniture for professional structure or go easy with an earth tone check accent.
