Bachelor pads 101

So it is no secret around here that I’m quite the fan of all things brightly coloured and blingy, but I thought today I’d continue the bachelor theme from Monday with a high style masculine apartment featured in the current edition of Lonny.

I usually totally veer away from strong doses of black in favour of gorgeous rich dark browns, whether we’re talking interior design or the contents of my wardrobe, so this scheme doesn’t sit naturally in my inspiration files.  But it’s good to question yourself sometimes, right?! 

Let’s take a little looky: 

Hellllo lucite legs!

Totally enamoured with this contemporary glass fire guard:

And this is one helluva cool dining room:

So here’s my attempt at something similar – let me know what you think pretty please!

Oh oops, still seem to have avoided le black…
