Once I came across this image I recalled seeing it in online magazine Lonny. The Designer behind this sophisticated masculine apartment is Ron Marvin:


gray and orange masculine bachelor style living room design ideas decor

A deep gray color tone sets a cozy but clean backdrop for this living room. The orange accent color is most definitely chosen to pick up the color in the red woods and and leathers throughout the home.


coffee table decor smoky hurricanes on tray masculine

I wouldn’t think of a coffee table vignette as typically masculine, but this one definitely is. Books with interesting book covers and smoky gray hurricanes are perfectly placed on a wooden tray. Using an organic decor element like a sea star or an interesting spiked ball like above, as a “paper weight” is a very popular decor element right now (as if you hadn’t noticed ;)


masculine bedroom blue orange

The bedroom is dramatic with matte charcoal gray walls. In stead of a tall headboard, Ron opted for a large mirror behind the bed. A great choice to reflect the natural light from the windows. On another note, where is Patrick Cline, the photographer?? haha!


bedroom vignette masculine bachelor style

This vignette on a dresser is located at the opposite end of the bed (as you can see in the mirror above it). I think the leather suitcase handles are the perfect touch. What do you think?


masculine home office black desk seagrass wallpaper wallcovering

A neat home office with seagrass wallpaper. For some reason this type of wallcovering goes perfectly with black, take a look at this previous post to see what I mean. According to Nancy Marcus who wrote a great post on chic desks, this one can be found at William Sonoma Home.
