Male design: interior design ideas


How to reduce the number of errors in the designinterior to a minimum? To answer this question, today we decided to turn to the methods that men use in their interiors. It's all wrong to be mistaken, and to say that a man never makes mistakes would be wrong on our part. Therefore, we decided to consider the main aspects in which representatives of the strong half of mankind manage to reduce the number of errors to a minimum.

1. The secret of the ideal order

Looking into a truly bachelor interior, oftenyou can find impeccable order there. How do men manage to support him? The whole secret lies in the organization of space: the presence of bookshelves, dressers and other pieces of furniture that interfere with free movement is minimized. That is why men choose loft, hi-tech, minimalism or Scandinavian style for themselves. For the same reason, they prefer hidden storage systems to open shelves. In the male interior, first of all, we are talking about the practicality and rational use of each square meter.

2. Combination of colors and ornaments

An unexpected combination of patterns or shadescan cause true delight only if the "golden mean" is observed when combining them. This is a fine line that is very easy to cross and make the interior cluttered. Therefore, try to combine several patterns of the same style, such as stripes on carpet and squares on pillows. Try to make a kind of mirroring of ornaments so that various interior items have something in common. So, rounded décor items can accentuate the shape of a ceiling chandelier, and geometric patterns depicted on posters will serve as a reference to the drawings on the pillows.

3. Art objects

There are no random objects in the interior of a man.decor, especially when it comes to art. Each painting, sculpture or photograph has a meaning for the owner and is an expression of his taste and aesthetic preferences. In order to avoid mistakes, do not buy a decor item just for the sake of having it on your shelf or hanging on the wall to complement the overall composition. Each element in the interior in one way or another speaks of the owner of the apartment. If you opted for a picture, then it should not only be beautiful in terms of design, you must definitely like it and harmonize with your inner state.

4. Color combinations

The interior, decorated by a man, in the majoritycases are not replete with red or orange spots. It's not flashy, but it's not boring either. In the apartment of a representative of the stronger sex, you will most often find a calm color palette. There can be shades of gray, a rich spectrum of brown, green and blue, used in the role of accent. It is possible that the interior can be spiced with a bright element, for example, a large yellow armchair. In any case, to make the experimental piece of furniture look appropriate, use a color that will harmonize best with the overall color scheme.

5. Multifunctionality

The furniture that is in the men's abodemust necessarily carry several functions. For example, a coffee table must be sturdy to be used as a footrest. This also applies to other interior items. All of them are as practical, functional and ergonomic as possible. If we are talking about lighting, then your favorite lamp is conveniently adjustable in height, the switches are equipped with dimmers and the interior must have built-in ceiling lights that zoning the space. Everything here is calculated to the smallest detail, it is not for nothing that they say that men are a rational people.

6. Textures and materials

You can argue for a long time about the male and female approach tointerior design, but the undeniable fact remains that strong representatives of humanity have a special passion for materials that have a pronounced texture and texture. Natural wood, linen, brick, leather, metal - albeit if not all at once, then separately will be present in the interior of men. As a floor covering, a representative of the stronger floor will choose a solid board or parquet, which is pleasant to walk on barefoot, feeling the warmth of wood. At the same time, the walls can be brick, concrete or decorated with decorative plaster. It is possible that in such an interior there will be wicker or knitted things, burlap in decor, linen on pillows, leather in furniture upholstery. A man loves to feel his interior not only visually, but also tactilely. And if a woman likes silk, velvet and glossy surfaces, then men like rougher materials. For example, the favorite material of designer Yevgeny Evdokimov is brick. Evgeny Evdokimov, interior designer: - Brick is one of my favorite and at the same time versatile materials. It is so versatile that it can fit into any modern interior - from ethnic styles, Provence and minimalism, to eclecticism and Scandinavian style. The texture of brick can be present both throughout the room, and accents that highlight individual walls. In an ordinary apartment, brick can be easily replaced with decorative masonry. Here are some examples of the use of bricks, depending on the effect they are supposed to have:

  • Brick masonry can be left untouched or cleaned and varnished - this option will look great in the interior of the loft or country.
  • Scandinavian style and Provence suggest coloring in white colors.
  • The bright color of the brick is perfect for ethnic interiors and eclecticism.
  • Nevertheless, I repeat: a brick can be present in any other interior, the main thing is to rely on a sense of style and harmony.

    7. Without Formalities

    And a little more about furniture.It certainly cannot be denied that men gravitate towards antiques or vintage items. But when it comes to the everyday practical use of this or that piece of furniture, a man will choose a model for himself that can be operated for a long time and not be afraid that something will happen to her. The priorities for the representative of the stronger sex are comfort, wear resistance, durability. Our opinion: - This once again proves that there are no random things or details in the interiors of men. Rational and practical men always surround themselves with stylish, aesthetically balanced things, they know how to find a "golden mean" in terms of colors, decor and ornaments. The male interior is moderately strict. It is interesting for its textures, not overloaded with details, which allows it to look solid. Once again, our article is based on observation and is not a set of rules or standards.
