Let's Hear it For the Boys

After seeing pretty fashions and girly interiors a guy reader or onlooking boyfriend may feel a little left out. So, these masculine interiors are for you. Leather, distressed wood, and accents of neutral blue make up these perfect man caves. Plus, they are full of style and definitely don't come across as frat boy-bar-hung a poster while I was drunk. They are even boyfriend approved by Dave (although he thought the red chair and decorative bed was too much). My defense - there are MAN shoes on the cute, dainty chair!

I'd say they are girl approved too. I would be happy to hang up those boxing gloves...maybe even add a punching bag in the corner. And how great is the Toys for Boys book? Don't worry...they have one for girls too!

Oh! Pretty!

Brittany Noel said...

Wow, definitely girl approved. The darkness though... I would for sure approve it for the den (which my boyfriend demands when we get a house), but probably not for the rest of the house. I need light!!

Love those boxing gloves!

I really like a slightly masculine yet modern interior. I love rich colors and leathers. The first three pictures are a home right up my alley!

Stephanie said...

My favorite is the fencing mask hung on the wall. Pretty cool.

.kate said...

Ok. For real. These men cannot be real. And if so, where can I find them. They have a better sense of decoration that I do. (Which isn't saying much....)

But thanks for this inspiration. Sometimes we just have to step outside the girly.

Yes I approve of these interiors. When my boyfriend and I finally get married and move in together I would like to have masculine rooms...I don't want it to be flowery and foo foo for him.

Really, really great cool colors! I would so live in places like these!

please sir said...

Yes - where are these guys? Good question!

Krissy said...

Is it ok that I think these are pretty?!?

leah said...

i dig this far more than the foofoo girlie things. not that all foofoo is bad. i just like this look. thats all. distressed anything is aok with me.

Jules said...

these are great - the perfect balance of masculine without being too manly. my husband would approve for sure!

Jane Flanagan said...

This is 100% my taste - I guess I like a laddish room!

littlebyrd said...

I love masculine interriors the most I think. My style definitely leans that way with lots of wool, plaid, wood, darker colors, and leather. Great post!

Kotori said...

Love that light over that dining table. I agree, I could do more masculine if it looked like any of these!

Ms Unreliable said...

I don't think that red chair would be boyfriend-approved in my corner either, but I definitely think red accents work in these interiors. I have some beaten up old red oars that would be right at home!

Designers' Brew said...

I like these more than most girly rooms... does that mean I have poor qualifications as a girl?

Sam said...

Yes, these interiors are more blokey but I really like them! They are clean and moder and they make a statement!

Sal said...

Oh my. I must be embracing my inner dude: LOVE these.

Rachel said...

I am grey obsessed lately and that bedroom is speaking to me. I think I'm ready to get in touch with my masculine side.

Tina said...

i actually really love these rooms, just need to combine a little elegance then it'll be perfect for both!

hello gorgeous said...

I prefer these, too. I just painted my bedroom gray but am thinking of going darker...

Joyce said...

I love the styles and could live in them! I so love the dining table and chairs!

Victoria said...

Man oh man, that bedroom looks just right to me.

Ada Rosman said...

Wonderful spaces....nice style, great neutral colors.

Lindley said...

a print a day said...

Camille said...

I would be happy to have any of those rooms, boxing gloves and fencing mask included.

susieq said...

I'm a girly girl. But I prefer to live in a slightly masculine space. And I love grays, browns, taupes, whites. Clears my head.

Girl Japan said...

Hi Please Sir, how are you? The grays looks lovely but I have my eye on the table,, I just love wooden long tables = )

erin@designcrisis said...

The ceiling is fantastic!

Vana said...

all these interior are very inspiring. I love clean, stylish masculine interiors. You don't find that very often:)

mary said...

I am totally swooning over that room with the exposed brick. I love it!

Raina said...

Now that song is stuck in my head - thanks. ;)

Why do I get the feeling the top one has an amazing view?
