Happy {ditto} Monday!_peacock

In honor of all the amazing Dads out there, and all the amazing men, for that matter, it is high time I share some seriously amazing, ditto-worthy gentleman’s spaces.

No man caves here, folks. You see, to be honest, I cannot stand that term. A cave? Well, I don’t happen to have a man who hides out in a cave. My man is an ever-present, ever-supportive, fully-integrated part of our special family. And I know so many other awesome men like him.

They don’t deserve caves. No. They deserve fine design, and a sophisticated place that respects their role in the home.

Below are 6 of my favorite gentleman’s spaces. And they are OH SO ditto-worthy.

Ditto-Worthy for your man:

  1. Gentleman’s spaces don’t have to be dark. Simple creams and light silvers stay manly with crisp lines and black accents.
  2. Glass and lucite.
  3. Repeating square shapes.
  4. Bold art.
