My friend Abby recently mentioned wanting to emulate the masculine vintage look of Portland's Ace Hotel in her & her husband's home and asked for some inspiration, so I thought it would be fun to do a post dedicated to that style (a style that my own husband is also rather enamored with.) Dark wood, deep colors, and antique accents. I love it.
Also, if anyone else needs inspiration for a certain kind of look, please let me know. I would love to help!

ooo la la summer, this is fantastic!ReplyDelete
beautiful designs!! I love them all.ReplyDelete
those images are gorgeous! Kind of haunting in a way, very dark and indeed very masculine. you should do delicate feminine next or interiors for the independent working female.ReplyDelete
I have been smitten with that dining area in a brick loft for a while now. If only I could have a loft like that to emulate that look. xoReplyDelete

Makes me want to go straight out and scour for antique furniture in need of some tlc.ReplyDelete
I love every single image, I must be secretly masculine..who knew?! I LOVE the bookcase/room divider in the third image,I've been looking for the perfectly proportioned (and perfectly priced) bookcase for over 2 years now! Sigh.ReplyDelete
Hallelujah! as a man addicted to the design world it is nice to finally see an entire post I can enjoy without a single compromise. Not that I dont like bright colors and such, but now and then it is nice to grunt and point at everything rather than only a few things!ReplyDelete
I want my home to look like this!!!ReplyDelete
Great inspiration. I'm really into the dark walls right now.
