Adding something unusual to your room like this Beugel chair, it’s not in line with your theme but it really bumps up the ante. I couldn’t find this Bruegel chair in a room but here is an Egg Chair (real or look-a-like) by Arne Jacobson in a very classic room.
Doesn’t the green modern chair make all the difference? The classical mirror, chandelier and console become even more powerful with the green pop.
Isn’t this just gorgeous stuff? Do you a set of fancy table ware? How about monogrammed napkins?
Finding a beautiful set of vintage plates would be just the perfect way to spice up your dayware.
Picking your favorite color or coordinating with your tableware would be a great way to start planning
your monogrammed napkin. These napkins are by Juliab. Juliab Couture Linens.
Next for your table or console why not add a vase that’s not clear glass. Blue doesn’t fit your scheme? I’m sure there is every color imaginable. Bloomingdale’s as a terrific vase and bowl selection.
You could start there.
What about a dynamite console? This is totally modern and totally expensive.
It is totally beautiful.
You can make something spectacular with great color.
This lilac, violet, heather console is a show stopper.

Really comfortable seating in this very traditional room and contrasts highly with our previous man caves. To each his own. I think this is very large mansion and this room was part of
the original architectural drawings.
As far as we can see there is nothing to do in this room except to enjoy wine and conversation.
Not a bad thing at all.
Okay. This is a little over the top. But if you can do it why not do it?
It certainly is a fun room. It will bring a grin to absolutely everyone who visits.
The designers have made this a great party room with the pin ball machines.
This is a large room. It would be an excellent idea for a basement room. Who cares
that there are no windows? The warm wood floor provides a calm against all the shine of
the chrome and glass.
There is a little bit of everything in this room. Baseballs, footballs,
a golf club. Isn’t it perfection? The orange shag carpet and the stone wall add wonderful texture. The chaise lounges provide wonderful comfort. What a great ceiling treatment. Top to bottom wonderful.
Designing a man cave needs special attention. Since the room is ideally suited
for the man in the family it’s vital that his viewpoint and his favorites are accommodated.
There can’t be something for everybody. It has to sport his favorite colors and his favorite
themes, whether that be baseball, football, motorcycles, music, books or movies.
Room size as usual the bigger the better, but you can really accomplish something very nice
in a small room. Perhaps you have to multi-purpose a room, for instance the guest room or the office.
Remember the same protocols. Use your favorite colors and themes. Here is a good example of a
muli-purpose room. This sofa could easily be a sleeper sofa and would be perfect for the occasional weekend guest.
The variety of texture, the geometric lines, the unexpected color and the delightful trip your eye makes to the loft make this hallway a stunner. The pale wood floor was the starting point. The wood grain is a pattern that plays off the stark white walls. The staircase adds dimension to the room and the riser gives you another view of the beautiful oak. The geometric pattern of the built-in console adds necessary points of interest for your eye the same as the blue chandelier.
Remember earlier I mentioned including something interesting at both ends of your hallway? Look at the yellow door at the end. Doesn’t that say hello?
1. Adding an exciting, dramatic or pretty carpet runner will do wonders for a narrow hallway.
2. Adding art on your walls can copy the linear line of a hallway. Be sure to hang art securely
so that it’s not nudged by traffic.
3. Good lighting always improves a space. These three sconces light the way and add a glow to the picture gallery.
4. Narrow furniture or built-ins improve the functionality and add interesting detail to this often overlooked space.
