Man Den Done Right
Whenever I think about a man den I think of plaid, leather, dark colors, a massive TV and perhaps an animal head or two.
Now normally those words don’t have decorators hearts going pitter patter, but boy have things changed.
In flipping though a recent issue of Hamptons Cottages & Gardens I found myself ohhing and ahhing over a recent home re-vamp on the east end of Long Island.
Take a peek:
Love that I spotted some of my favorite Katsugi as toss pillows.
Grass-cloth wallpaper, pops of orange throughout and a tasteful large plaid pattern sofa takes center stage.
A peek into the closet (which takes up the entire 3rd floor) reminded me of J Crew's men’s store:
Love this look alike fabric to recreate the headboard and bed skirt on a budget:
Then of course my favorite budget friendly zig-zag would work for budget toss pillows:
Benjamin Moore Ashley Grey is a favorite shade of mine. It’s the perfect putty grey neutral.
Orange graphic rug:
The other bits and prices could easily be recreated on thrift store finds.
Do you have a man den in your home? We all know I have one and Jon loves to decorate it.
