4 Guy-Friendly Decorating Ideas

If you’ve been suffering the constant battle of the sexes when it comes to decorating your home, we’ve got four ideas that will make both you and your man happy:

Use a Black & White Color Scheme

Black & white falls in neutral territory–it’s both masculine & chic at the same time. Meet in the middle with a black & white themed room that incorporates an abstract check or plaid pattern.

Display the TV in Style

When it comes right down to it, you have to think about the practicality of a room, and if the man in your life likes to watch TV, you should work it into the room well. You don’t necessarily have to make it the focal point, but decorate around it purposefully. We like how the TV in this room is inset & sits in front of a backdrop of rustic wood planks, which you can easily recreate with wallpaper.

Mix Metal & Leather

Metal details are riding the trend wave right now in interior decor, and we don’t see them going away any time soon. Mix them with leather (a favorite of men), which will soften the industrial vibe of the metals. In addition, if you’re going to put leather on multiple pieces of furniture, switch up the texture or hue, opting for a crocodile version or a lighter brown.

Make His Collections a Focal Point

If your guy has a collection of trophies, sports paraphernalia or action figures, don’t just throw them into storage. Stylishly make them the focal point of a space by choosing pieces from the collection that work well together and display them on clean floating shelves. Before hanging the shelves, decide how you will position them, and frame this area with panels of grasscloth wallpaper to really make his pieces the center of attention.
