Men like masculine colors…what?! Well, I should say, my Husband likes what he calls 'guy colors'.
As a Designer married to an Engineer, form and function are topics often discussed in our home. I prefer elegant yet laid-back design and my husband likes our surroundings to look appealing, as well. So when he mentions ‘no girly-colors’ for his man-cave bathroom, I say, ‘but what do you…mean’?
The Olive Bathroom – A Mancave Ensuite We Can Agree On
My husband isn't fond of green but, when I showed him this olive tone that coordinates well with the colorway of the adjoining rooms, he likes this color. It looks great with bronze, dark wood tones and white. I have used this tone of olive green in my artwork as well. A darker shade is in the matting of the painting above the towel rack and I have also incorporated several adjoining olive tones mixed with gold and aubergine in the piece to tie it all together.
Another color my husband wasn't sold on was brown. I think brown is particularly elegant, it makes everything sparkle and has the ability to make small room larger somehow. It's truly magical...because now he likes 'brown'! I used brown here in our Powder Room...
...and here in a toilet room in the owner's suite bathroom. Can you tell I'm a big fan of floating shelves? I like interior design palatte colors I use to coordinate, not neccessarliy 'match'. I feel like interior spaces should look evolved and the colors should 'talk' to each other. In this house I used the colors of nature to dictate the palette...earth, sand sky and the sun. (oh yeah, snow is White!) :)
