Super Bowl Special: A Media Room that Both Men & Women Will Love

Each year as the Super Bowl comes ’round, guys all over the U.S. start fantasizing about their very own tricked out man cave. But what about the women? Don’t we deserve our own room, too?!

We’ve got a space that we like to call the “Glam Cave”—a media room with the perfect combination of feminine and masculine details, making it an ideal spot for both guys and gals. Check out these must-know tricks for recreating the space:

Tip 1: Use Soft, Plush Fabrics & A Cool Coffee Table

A room that focuses on televisions and sports can be tempered with layers of soft, sensual fabrics. Here, there are ottomans upholstered in fur and lots of comfortable velvet, silk and wool pillows on a luxurious textured velvet sofa. She also encased silver football statuettes in Lucite tables, which is a trick that can easily be recreated by using a coffee table with a removable glass or Lucite top. You could put everything from football-shaped candy to rhinestone-encrusted footballs inside of it.

Tip 2: Treat Sports Memorabilia like Art

Turn the sports memorabilia your guy has lying in the garage into works of art—it could be anything from an old team photo to a vintage jersey—by putting them into embellished frames. Since it is the 21st century, display photos of both male and female athletes complete with empowering quotes. Our favorite idea from this room? Encasing or shelving hot pink sports shoes. It’s an unexpected touch that makes total sense for the space. Be sure to showcase the sporty art on a cool wall. We like a chalkboard-esque version that looks like football plays are written on it or a dazzling metallic texture.

Tip 3: Add in Small Glamorous/Feminine Touches

Just because it’s a media room, doesn’t mean it can’t be feminine, too. Glam up the space with embellished light fixtures, spiky Sea Holly flowers in a clean-lined vase and other special details. Always think about the combination of soft-meets-hard as you decorate—like the metal studs on the geometric chair and bar (that will definitely be serving more than PBR!) below.
