Masculine Bedrooms

Is your husband sick of the flowers and frills in your master bedroom? Does he feel lost in all the ruffles and roses?


Adding some masculinity(I'm referring to decor ;) to your master bedroom doesn't have to be as difficult as you think. Today I thought I would showcase some pretty awesome bedrooms that definitely have that strong man factor.

This is a great example of a bedroom that is decorated nicely but still very masculine. The strong lines of the art and the simple bedding make this space feel more manly.

I love this space. Still very masculine, even with those skirted bedside tables.

This room is a great example of mixing masculine and feminine. The dark colors and the warm woods are masculine and the curved upholstered headboard and the flowers add that feminine touch.

I love this eclectic room. Even though the headboard is tufted, it feels more masculine because of the dark gray/blue color.

A classically eclectic man's bedroom. This man has a taste for the finer things. I really like the small bench that can slide under the bedside table.

Here's a more retro masculine feeling bedroom. This is a great space! I love the plaid blanket on the bed with those orange chairs. It reminds me of the sets in Moonrise Kingdom.

Here is a modern manly space. Those bold X base benches at the end of the bed are really cool. I love all of the geometric aspects of this space.

A simple stripe can add that masculine touch and I love that hide pillow!

Or you can just go all out manly and add a sailfish above the bed!

Here are some tips to remember when trying to add some masculinity to your bedroom:

1. Add warm wood tones
2. Simple tailored bedding, think of a man in a suit
3. Strong lines in art or accessories (geometrics, graphics, stripes)
4. If something is feminine in shape i.e. tufted headboard, make sure it's in a more manly color like grays, blues, greens and browns.
5. Add in a leather piece (chair, bench, ottoman)
6. Mix in masculine curiosities with your accessories (antlers, maybe a globe, vintage shaving pieces, cool sculptures, clocks)

I hope this helps you add a little of that man factor to your bedroom. Think freshly showered and shaved good smellin' man!
