Man Caves are not anything new, but they are changing. They have moved beyond the pool table and sports jerseys and have become more than a “cave.” Whether you have enough room to devote for a man cave or you’re carving out a corner for a reading chair, man caves are in.
Designer Jonathan Scott did this bold blue-and-yellow man cave, decking it out with favorite sports memorabilia and a pool table. Adding blue grasscloth to the corner and ceiling makes it feel a little like the corner table in a favorite haunt. Copy this look by having your accent wall painted in PPG’s Victory Blue.
Sometimes all you need is a little breathing room. Create a nook with a club chair upholstered in pinstripes and a dark gray wall like PPG’s Dark Granite.
For men who feel most at home when they’re at work, an office with all the comforts thereof is a great use of space. If your room is expansive, like this office’s reception area, paint walls, ceiling and trim the same color white. It’ll maximize the space and the light. Fuzzy Unicorn (yep, that’s really its name) is the paint color to have your painters use.
Nothing is more masculine than a gentleman’s club, with its leather chesterfields. In this one, vintage boxing photos and sports memorabilia make it a haven for athletes. If you love this look, Paintzen can use Black Elegance.
Navy blue is a classic color for a man’s space. Here, the office of a musician is divided between work and creativity. Try Black Flame on the walls – its purple undertone turns the saturated color rich blue.
Dark wood paneling lines the walls of this home office. The ceiling, painted a creamy white (try Alpaca Wool) reflects the light from the windows keeping the space from becoming dour.
Even a shared space can embrace its inner masculinity. Here, the gray platform bed blends into the gray walls (have yours painted with Glistening Gray), creating a hideaway that manages to be soothing, without a flower in sight.
