If you want your home to reflect your great taste without it looking like you tried too hard, read on because these masculine homes hit the nail on the spot!


Nothing says “I’m a distinguished gentleman with refined tastes” like a sleek, monochromatic home like this!

Don’t be afraid to pick vibrant hues to add contrast to a monochromatic space! This also prevents black walls from looking too dungeon-like.

And if you’re the laidback, creative type, showcase your eclectic taste by throwing together a mix of textures and colours. The trick is to make it look effortlessly cool.

For a warmer feel, go for subdued hues of grey and cosy it up with arty cushions and wooden accents.

Living alone with the occasional date popping by? Show her how modern you are with this casual bar height dining table that’s just the right size for small gatherings.

For an open dining area, consider “extending” the kitchen island by attaching a dining table next to it. The table can then offer up more countertop space when you’re preparing bigger meals.

Get in the mood for rest (and love) with black out curtains, and a smoky accent wall and grey tufted fabric headboard to match it.

Dark brown and warm wooden tones also add a sense of calm and warmth to the sleeping area.

And if you’re the clean-cut type, go for a neutral palette, which makes the bedroom as inviting in the day. In order to create the right ambience for this room at night, be sure to have warm accent lights installed.

Glossy black laminates work well to amp up the luxe factor in the kitchen. Juxtapose it with some matt and colourful accents for a more contemporary vibe.

And don’t shy away from your feminine side… Accessorise it with a statement lighting like this industrial yet elegant chandelier from Timolthy Oulton. (It will surely score extra points with the classy ladies.)

For a grungier take on the kitchen, go for textural finishes like brick veneers, concrete laminates, and steel accents.

Be the boss of your own space – get a sturdy study table that says “this means business”.

If you often fantasise about spending all day reading in those large, traditional libraries of Europe, create a downsized version of that in your study room with French-inspired shelves and cabinetry. 
(Interior design by The Cottage Crafts)

Or why not turn the study room into a space where you can kickback and unwind? It can be your own home cinema, or a hobby space like this one.
