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.
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.
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.
Rattan Trunk Basket – $598
Stow away pillows, additional bedding or filthy clothes in this rattan trunk positioned at the end of the bed.
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.
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.
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.
Dreamy Seascape Photo by Eye Poetry Photography – $30
This highly effective seascape print goes over the bed.
Veneer Spheres – $16
Here are a few more sculptural accessories for a table or shelf or on top of a pile of books.

Your guy can store his watch or other small accessories within this beautiful bone box.
French Directoire Dresser – $1,499
I like the straight lines and weathered finish with this chest.
Tårnby Rug, Flatwoven – $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.
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.
Somerton Montecito End Table – $235.20
This instant bedside table has shelves to get a laptop, books or publications.
Hand-Woven Original Silk Ikat Pillow Cover, Dark by Sukan – $49.95

Utilize a tufted chair for reading or sitting down to wear shoes.
