I have been drooling over the wonderful paintings of interiors by artist Kate Lewis, when I came across this masculine room (above). It looked familiar, and sure enough, when I looked through my files I found this room by Nate Berkus:
I think it’s the perfect stylish ‘man’s room’, using great ‘man’s colours’: black and white, earthy neutrals and olive greens. (The rug must be Madeline Weinrib but of course Ikea does a great rip-off of this one). Also, the industrial textures like steel shelving and natural elements like driftwood, framed specimens (can’t make out what sort) and tortoise shell make it feel like a boys’ den all grown up!
Be sure to check out the rest of Kate Lewis’ work – it’s gorgeous. I haven’t dared to ask prices yet, but there is plenty on her website that I’d love!
