Dudes and Decor: An Interior Design Primer for Guys

We all know the stereotypes for the ways guys “decorate” their spaces: outdated recliners, a nest of media and electronics cables, and movie posters tacked to the walls. Nobody’s impressed by that…not even your buddies who sit in the chair, watch and play the electronics, and like that movie. But there are plenty of opportunities to make any space feel both masculine and personalized, without feeling like a dorm room. 

Designer Brian Patrick Flynn sat down with fellow interior stylist Danielle Colding to discuss decorating for guys. Danielle’s tips are all about integrating the things you love and need with classic, heritage items that will never go out of style. She’s a fairly high end designer, so there’s not of ton of money-saving advice here, but it’s a great primer for thinking about centering a space around investment pieces.
