The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
This bachelor pad living room has it all: space, style and comfort. A blue wall anchors the gray sofa, while a corner fireplace serves as the room's focal point. A shaggy brown area rug defines the sitting area, which includes a brown leather chair.
Chris mixed modern with traditional to create a transitional design style. He paired a tailored, button-tufted, 1960s-style sofa with an ovular, bronze and glass coffee table that has more traditional lines. For rustic, masculine texture, Chris opted for end tables made of driftwood with glass tops. A pair of mid-century modern table lamps added a touch of the unexpected to the space. Altogether the furniture arrangement came to slightly over $2000. After searching for art, Chris couldn't find anything he connected with and instead had a professional photographer shoot his collectible Cutlass convertible, and then had it framed as fine art.
Designer Justine Sterling set out to modernize this young bachelor's open living and dining areas, but in a thoughtful way that would respect the location and also provide the client with a functional design. The narrow living room space was one of the biggest challenges in the space planning. By creating a wall hung entertainment unit and bookcase, with a large area rug and small cocktail tables, the narrow space was visually widened.
Sterling's client has a great sense of nostalgia for his old collections of passed down family treasures and many were custom framed, placed in museum style boxes or simply placed under a cloche, like his Red Sox signed ball collection. What could have been cliche sports memorabilia now looks tasteful and purposeful.
Once a tired Tuscan-style home, this bachelor pad near Scottsdale, Ariz., now exudes masculine sophistication. To achieve this look in the living room, designer Raegan Ford balanced white walls with dark wood trim and pulled in her client's photography for a space that's ready for entertaining.
Clean style and sleek lines in this modern master bedroom let the rugged furniture showcase itself. "Everything played on the next thing. There was nothing that we did in the house that was only for the look," says designer Felicia Foster.
Designed with a bachelor's style preference in mind, this bedroom relies on a masculine combination of navy and white with just a touch of bold yellow color. Industrial bulb-like pendant lights hang over each white nightstand, while textured gray wallpaper is paired with deep blue velour drapery.
This transitional bachelor pad was kept simple and functional for a clean, warm atmosphere. High-quality materials create a sophisticated feel, while Shoji-style closet doors add an Asian vibe to the space.
A framed picture of a muscle car is the centerpiece in this masculine gray living room with red cushions. A circular glass coffee table is perfect for the room's seating area, while the color scheme of dark brown, red, white and silver puts a sophisticated spin on the bachelor pad style.
Determined to give his 17th floor high-rise Atlanta condo a polished, masculine look, sales executive Chris Staub chose a color scheme of dark brown, red, white and silver to put a more sophisticated spin on bachelor pad style. The high-end space was created on a deceptively low budget that was maximized by mixing high and low price-point purchases with a combination of flea market finds and custom-made elements.
