Just earlier this week, I finished styling a bachelor's studio apartment in the city. Despite the fact that I'm a girly girl, I loved breaking out of my comfort zone and finding masculine items for his place. He had this awesome built-in shelf that needed some loving, so of course I filled it with some neat finds. Take a look!
Clockwise: My client is Hawaiian, so I was super stoked when I found this vintage postcard with the text "Hawaiian Hapa Haole" and pictured a sexy Hawaiian girl. I love how it's a nod to his heritage and where he's from. The postcard was just $1 and the black frame was $3. The mirrored Absolut Vodka bottle was a must-have when I spotted it for $5 -- definitely a unique piece of art! I love graphic text, so this "Don't let me down" postcard with the arrow cutout was a nice touch of boldness for $1. The black frame was $4 and I didn't mind showing the back since it gave an industrial look & feel. The vintage steel car and the globe are my favorites, $18 and $15 respectively. Both super unique and manly, yes??
With all the black, wood and steel, of course I had to add in succulents to give it a pop of color and some texture! And, also because succulents are low-maintenance = easy for the guys ... ;)
