I’ve said before that a man’s style is only in part exemplified by his clothing. A huge aspect of it consists of the look and feel of our homes.
A man’s dwelling has the same psychological and social impact on his life as his wardrobe. If we live in messy, cluttered, dirty spaces, we tend to feel and act that way. If we surround ourselves with quality, aspirational items we will be a bit more motivated to act better and work harder.
Just like with our clothes, there is no objective standard of a man’s home that is better or worse. Some choose the clean lines and spartan utility of a modern dwelling, while others come home and unwind with reminders of travels and conquests. The key is to make your place look and feel as if it’s a reflection of you.
Here’s a great example of a small, Manhattan apartment belonging to menswear designer Thom Browne. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Between the warm tones, rich colors, hard lines, and minimal clutter, this is an ideal urban, masculine space.
