THIS MONTH'S DESIGN IDEA BE CHIC AND MASCULINE

Be chic and masculine
This month's design idea Be chic and masculine

Masculine design is often characterised by a considered, simple and strict style. Not far off austere …

Avoid going too far by saying yes to some sophisticated accessories. In the bedroom and living room, add more cushions and throws for example. Go for solid colours in shades of black, brown, dark green or navy blue, or favour stripes and geometrical motifs to liven up the design.

MUST HAVES OF CHIC, MASCULINE DESIGN

The must-haves you can’t do without are leather armchairs and Chesterfield sofas that evoke the famous British gentleman’s club and go with any style. For everything else, anything goes as long as you keep to a few simple rules. Favour unfinished, natural materials: wood, metal, glass, concrete etc. And go for dark shades, especially black and brown for their air of mystery and elegance. Then, it’s all a matter of style. The exotic woods of tables, desks, bookcases, wardrobes and chests of drawers add a whiff of adventure to your interior. In steel, they bring an industrial and urban feel, lifted by the obligatory articulated lamps. It’s up to you to pick your favourite or to keep things interesting from room to room!
