Tips On Expressing Your Own Personal "Guy-Style"

Men are you tired of milk crate book shelves and grandpa’s hand-me-down recliner defining your style?  Yet, calling your mom for design assistance could produce even more dire decorating consequences.

Don’t be afraid.  By following these few simple tips is confident that you will find your own personal guy-style.

  1. Quality. Start slow. Buy one good, cool, classic piece of furniture – the best you can afford. Measure the room/wall where you will want to place that piece of furniture. Then, before you buy that piece, check the measurements and make sure it will fit. Furniture that is on legs looks less bulky and more sleek – especially if you are in a smaller space.  Finally, make sure you test out whatever you are buying for comfort.
  2. Cool Lighting. That does not mean lava lamp.  Industrial, hip, modern. Floor or table, doesn’t matter. Doesn’t have to be expensive – no one will know and you won’t be sitting in it.
  3. Art. Pick a theme. Be it architecture, sports, classic cars, whatever your passion.  Black and white photos based on your theme are a classic option. Frame them in rimless or modern black frames – the end product is inexpensive and it looks cool.
  4. Most importantly add your personality to your place to make it a reflection of who you are.  The color blue is your favorite -paint an accent wall, fan of music – vintage album covers are cheap – frame them or fill a bookcase with your collection, photography is your hobby – display some vintage cameras on an end table.

So guys, say good-bye to your old dorm style and start designing like a man!
