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.
A space needs to include heavy and sturdy decor items if you want it to look masculine. Delicate forms, curves, sleek lines and lightweight furnishings are the opposite of that. Look for materials such as solid wood and metal and make sure at least some of your furniture pieces have a solid and strong impact on the overall decor and ambiance of the space. Obviously, don’t exaggerate and also remember to balance out that heaviness with some glass accents, cozy fabrics and light colors.
The Mallow sideboard from Alto is both simple and sophisticated, with a design that blends clean and simple lines with smooth and fluid curves. It has a frame made of painted iron mixed with wood veneer panels and polished stainless steel hardware. It’s the type of elegant accent piece you can put in a dining room, on a hallway but also in a living room or even in a bedroom.
The world is full of stereotypes and preconceived notions that change the way we think or dictate the decisions we make in life. For example, when trying to picture a masculine interior decor a lot of people immediately go to images of a dark, sterile space ruled by chaos or of a space that‘s austere and has an unrealistic futuristic look. Such spaces definitely exist but they don’t actually define the majority.
