Guest Picks: Sophisticated Bedroom Finds for a Single Guy

I read a post a couple of months back about a new niche group of clients for interior designers — single and educated men seeking to create more trendy living spaces. The standard-issue down comforter, Star Wars and Bob Marley posters, and thrift shop couches are being traded for something a bit more sophisticated. My own single brother asked for artwork for Christmas, so it appears like some growing up has happened. My mother and I recently set out to make a sophisticated and stylish bedroom for my bro, and here’s what we came up with. — Sarah from The Estate of Matters

Thom Filicia Inc..

Thom Filicia has a manner with casual and modern rooms. This is a great example of the mix of neutral, muted tones in what I consider to be a manly area.

TOAST

Macausland’s Blanket – GBP 175

I keep watching the wool camp blanket over and over again. I adore its homespun appeal mixed with a classic stripe.

Cost Plus World Market

Courtney Bed – $599.99

The marriage of upholstery and wood with this bed will stand the test of time.

Lands’ End

Tailored Hotel Embroidered Dot Duvet Cover – $109

I’d like to use a classic resort sham and sheet set that can pair well with any accent blanket as tastes change.

Terrain

Rattan Trunk Basket – $598

Stow away pillows, additional bedding or filthy clothes in this rattan trunk positioned at the end of the bed.

West Elm

Supply Kudu Table Lamp – $169

I love the sculptural shape of the lamp. In a subtle manner, in addition, it mimics antlers. It will look great on a tall dresser as part of a vignette.

Etsy

2013 Moon Calendar at Night Sky Silkscreen Printing by Rendij Studio – $15

I like the picture quality and the deep azure of the lunar poster.

Vintage Electric Fan, Retro Blue by NeOld – $38

Both practical and good looking, this fan has a stunning and glistening deep blue base.

Petite Rustique Bamboo Roman Shade – $32.99

How can you really go wrong with a classic bamboo colour in almost any space? These great-quality sunglasses come in a multitude of widths and therefore are at a excellent price point.

West Elm

Abacus Table Lamp, Clear – $149

The neutral tones of the glass lamp makes it great as a bedside light. I would opt for a pair.

Etsy

Dreamy Seascape Photo by Eye Poetry Photography – $30

This highly effective seascape print goes over the bed.

French Directoire Dresser – $1,499

I like the straight lines and weathered finish with this chest.

IKEA

Tårnby Rug, Flatwoven Р$99.99

This is an inexpensive option to cover a larger surface area in the bedroom. It will look great with a traditional over-dyed oriental rug layered for softness.

Rugs USA

Over-Dyed Makah Multi Rug – $2,796

Buy a bigger Persian rug to layer over a huge jute rug so that you can step out of bed onto a softer rug.
