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.
Some manly styling
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.

Awww, LOVE that warm leather headboard.
|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!
