We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
When decorating a bachelor pad always pay attention to the colors and shapes that are included in the design. You can never go wrong with straight lines and simple forms but don‘t let these rule the decor. Play with contrasts and also add some curves and patterns to the space. Aim for a contemporary style that‘s semi-minimalist.
Obviously, just because you want a space to be comfortable and practical doesn’t mean you shouldn‘t pay attention to the looks. A good idea is to pick materials that stand out and that have a well-defined look and character, materials such as wood and metal. Complement them with something a bit more delicate such as frosted glass.
There are of course some major differences between a feminine decor and one with a masculine vibe. Masculine spaces are more practical and more focused on functionality. This, however, doesn’t stop them from also being sensible to style and little details that make them look charming. Sacrificing style for comfort is rarely a good idea, especially when you want the space to look masculine.
