A Masculine Motif

As you may recall, I've been searching high and low for masculine interior inspiration. Now I'm not much for antlers or taxidermy, but I adore the graphic appeal of the American flag and the Union Jack. Paired with handsome hard woods and dark matte walls, these motifs lend masculine allure and patriotic flair. I even painted my Anglophile boyfriend, who spent last semester studying business in London, a Union Jack campaign dresser! What do you think?

I do love a flag motif for the guys. It is sort of patriotic and preppy all at once. That dresser is perfect!

This anglophile LOVES all the Union Jack inspiration! I should try to work in a few pieces in my husband's office.

GREAT post! I also agree about the taxidermy. A subtle flower arrangement or even a single tree branch in a large vase is preferable to a carcass if one needs a touch of nature, in my opinion. I'm loving the glass cloche displays in the Graham Moss picture and pretty much everything else.

And way to go on that dresser! You're rocking it out.

I love the photo from Graham Moss! I love the look of a Union Jack in interiors. Did you go to the Jack Wills store when you were in Nantucket? I took Logan in there and they had a Union Jack settee... really cool store. xo

Ok the dresser is nuts. This is the first Im seeing of it and I am blown away. I love myself a manly space but seem to be incapable of non girling them up.
