A Masculine Approach

A Masculine Approach

For a look that's decidedly masculine, selecting a manly piece of art is just as important as how it is displayed. We studied the homes of eight male designers and took note of the careful attention they've shown to making their art appear effortlessly placed, and almost "undecorated." Their lack of formality creates a laid back bachelor aesthetic that feels collected over time and oh-so masculine. Below are 5 tips for achieving the look.
