"what lingerie is to men, suits are to women"
admit it, girls...
there is class to dark gray flannel with slip of white cuff showing
there is power in a navy blue pinstripe with a deep red tie
there is elegance in an impeccably tailored suit
there is nothing more masculine than herringbone, houndstooth and harris tweed
used in the right spot and in the right amount
these fabrics can sharpen up your room,
and make the men in your life feel more comfortable at home
there are numerous ways to give a nod to menswear in your decor
and there are plenty of fabrics to choose from -
in the psychology of menswear
a well tailored suit epitomizes strenghth, wealth and power
where would bond be without his powerful signature look?
(this beautiful room with a distinct masculine feel
reminds me of a tuxedo
high contrasts, classic, elegant..)
translates to classic looks, tailored design, strength and a clean masculine touch
while menswear fabrics in interior decorating may be getting more popular -
one of them - houndstooth - is already HOT
its popping up everywhere
in new applications and colors
|Ralph Lauren Home|
you will be seeing it everywhere !
some of the rules are the same
black and white looks great with a pop of red
the busier the pattern, the plainer the rest of your fabrics should be
and well, how can you mess with a classic?
its the contrasts in decorating
that make a room more interesting and beautiful
imagine how bland and dull a room would be with no dark and light
no soft and hard or dull and shiny contrasts
consider adding an element, small or large, of menswear fabric
to your home decor
you just can't resist a well-dressed room
