When I think of menswear in decor, I think heavy cable sweaters, leather, houndstooth and plaids. I like warm colors, heavy textures and a cozy pillow in the winter and I always like this look in a man’s study.
I have always been a fan of houndstooth, but I learned something about houndstooth this Christmas. Not everyone looks at houndstooth the same way. For example: For Christmas, we gave my daughter the cutest gray and black houndstooth dress with a thick burnt red belt, burnt red tights, cool earrings and the most awesome burnt red Dr. Martens boots. I was feeling pretty proud of myself for putting together this hip ensemble. Not for long … my teen put me right in my place when I got a “eeewww…. these are Alabama’s colors – I hate Alabama”. Really? Are you frickin’ kidding me? Who automatically goes there when they see houndstooth? Apparently my teen and every one of her friends. In her defense – she did pretend she liked it for about 2 hours before she reminded me of my stupidity. Merry Christmas.
These are some ways to use the Menswear Look in your home decor this winter:
Pillows made from men’s shirts and sweater. Cozy and casual.
How classy is this bed with the bold houndstooth pillow?
Love the plaid on the curtains on this menswear decor idea board.
The plaid pattern on the headboard makes such a statement.
Do you think University of Alabama when you see these chairs? Not me … I see stunning!
