This weekend I received a reader request from Rich in Milton Keynes who said, “I’ve been in my new place for a few months now, living with just the bare essentials of furniture. Thinking it’s now time to make it look more comfortable and livelier, starting with the living room. Do you have any ideas/pictures for modern-ish manly-ish living rooms with character? I’m all for some soft touches but nothing too frilly or fussy please!”
I’m very glad to have received this request, it made me realise there is a bit of a shortage of masculine chic inspiration on my blog. Sorry boys! Anyway, here are some gorgeous living rooms which I think fit the bill and which I too (a girl) would move into in a heartbeat, given the chance!
I know this isn’t as such oozing masculinity, it’s more an all-rounder space for those who might like a light, bright, uplifting space that is comfortable without being fussy. Or maybe I just HAD to showcase this space after I came across it at the weekend… teal velvet and ochre patterned cushions and that rug – OMG!! This is how to do colour! My only snag here is the TV is positioned too high, but don’t let that detract from the lovely colours!
