MeN in their early or late thirties with  professional backgrounds are quite comfortable with the color blue in every shade … it embraces their pin stripe power suits.   Which has been a part of men style since the beginning of fashion.  Pastel pinks and Polo yellows are also widely adapted by the bachelor, divorcee and the jet setting crowd.  The aura of authority, money and intelligence provides an acceptable level of comfort with these colors.  Through my research I have found several design concepts that caters to this unique niche.  Interior Designing for men is still not marketed as a widespread money-making audience.  But everyday I continue to meet and design for more and more men who are determined to break through this glass door.   Speaking of doors… one of the most important areas in a divorced or bachelor’s pad is the bedroom.  When MeN can seduce a woman by making her  feel comfortable, sexy and romantic through his chose of furniture he has done his homework.  He should also use dashes of bold colors, wild textures, soft fabrics and patterns to create the flow.    Throw caution to the wind, select cranberry-red, citric-orange and night-time lavender as accent pieces.  Good Luck.

For those of you who love Mid-Century Modern as I do… Eichler homes are for us groupies.  It takes a Connoisseur of fine taste to appreciate, the architecture of these one of a kind homes.  Built in the late 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s they will always capture the hearts of the hip and cool.    “Joseph Eichler was the only merchant builder in America who built modernist style homes on a large scale, designed by skilled architects and using quality materials. His contemporary houses have not been equaled since, and 50 years on they still look ‘modern”.

house of turquoise

The hottest colour this year is Turquoise according to Pantone, a world renowned authority on colour. Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantene colour Institute tells us “that in many cultures, Turquoise occupies a very special position in the world of colour…….it is believed to be a protective talisman, a colour of deep compassion and healing, and a colour of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky”.
