This seriously might be the scariest piece of furniture I've ever seen, but my husband would be in hog heaven if I designed a whole room around it. Yeah, it's not going to happen. . . .
For a long time, I think man caves have gotten a bad name--at least among us decorating types. However, I was delighted when I recently found these new photographs in the portfolio of Los Angeles-based designer Jenn Feldman.
It has some of the typical elements you might associate with a man room--leather sofa, sports memorabilia, etc.--but the overall feel is modern, clean and best of all, cozy.
One of my favorite things that she did was to paint all of the walls, doors and trim in the same navy color. It's a wonderful way to give the room that cave-like feeling, in a good way.
I also like the fact that she didn't paint this campaign chest and some of the other pieces. The wood shows up so warm against the dark walls. And, you might notice the client is a huge University of Kentucky fan (like my husband). Just goes to show you can show your true blue love without putting the recliner monster in your room.
Traditional plaid paired with a modern desk--such a great combination.
If you want to learn more about Jenn and her work, I did a fun interview with her soon after I started my blog. You can read more about her beautiful home, her design business and her connection to Oprah here.
PS--My husband happened to look over my shoulder as I was writing this post, saw the UK recliner and said "Am I getting that???" I think it's safe to say we're not on the same page where the man cave is concerned. . .
