Knusse woonboerderij met masculine interieur

Afgelopen weekend besprak ik een droomhuis van een vriend: een vrijstaand huis bovenop een berg in Oostenrijk. Het skigebied waar hij al sinds zijn zesde op de latten staat en zijn tweede thuis noemt. Toen ik dit interieur spotte klopte het plaatje! Een prachtige warme woonkamer met authentieke balken die voor een stoer contrast zorgen tegen het gewitte plafond, een grootse openhaard om op te warmen na het skiën en een flinke bank om op neer te ploffen. Het enige wat nog mist – in mijn beleving van ‘Alpenhuisje’ – is een bakstenen muur…

Alleen dit knusse huis (met masculine interieur) is een gerenoveerde woonboerderij. Sorry dat ik menig droom nu ingooi, maar goed; je moet altijd wat te fantaseren hebben 😉

De kastenwand splitst een grote ruimte in tweeën. Door de verschillende grootte van de vakken ontstaat er een speels effect. Mooi om hier je skietrofeeën te exposeren, schatten van je reizen of gewoon je favoriete boeken!

Wooninspiratie

Modern man cave

It’s almost weekend which means time to celebrate and go out. Or on the other hand, stay at home in your man cave. In America and Australia the man cave is very popular, but in The Netherlands you see it more often. A space where the man of the house can enjoy his hobbies or alcoholic beverages. Whether it’s in a basement, shed or spare room, as long as it’s equipped with a television, comfortable seating and a mini bar it’s good enough. So while the woman is baking cupcakes, the man can enjoy his beverages with his friends (stereotypical speaking…). So here’s my interpretation of the modern man cave where not only comfortable seating is equipped, but also modern lightning, rock and roll and an industrial touch.

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n my eyes most of the man caves come very ‘old English pub’ or very industrial. When it comes to the single man it mostly is called a bachelor pad – which I personally adore! More luxury and less clutter. Most of the Dutch homes that I visited contained a computer room and a hobby room (mostly for women). So let’s get masculine and give the man more space than just a little shed filled with tools, and get inspired by the following interior decoration specially for men, to decorate your own modern man cave!

// Classified Moto Café Table & Original lamp with spring coverClassified Moto
The guys behind Classified Moto started with custom made motorcycles and toyed around with some custom made lamps.
What started with a whim in their garage, turned in a worldwide hit. The lamp is made of vintage parts of 70’s and 80’s Japanese motorcycles.

My personal fav is Jeeves because of it’s authentic bowler hat. Jake Phipps add that little British design which I adore: a different angle on furniture designs. Phipps works for huge clients like Google, Tommy Hilfiger, Harvey Nichols and Philippe Starck. An eye-catcher for the true gentleman!

A little bit more vintage with this awesome print of all different movie cars from 1929 to the modern day!
Iconic cars like the “1963 Cadillac series 62 Convertible” from Scarface, “1955 Ford Lincoln Futura Concept Car” from Batman and my personal favourite: “1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500” from Gone In 60 Seconds.

Again an UK-based brand – gotta love it! Buster + Punch are for those who want to live with conviction.
I’ll write more on these fellows later! This Rockstar whisky and cocktail bar is finished in American Black walnut and covered with Rockstar Black Leather.

When it comes to Jimmie Martin I’m always in. These guys know how to turn furniture into unique pieces, sometimes even with graffiti.
For every modern man cave owner, a lovely refurnished Chesterfield

Hope you got inspired for a man cave. I don’t want to exclude women, I guess if you are into industrial design and home interiors you would love some of the products above.

Enjoy your weekend!!
