Make Over a Masculine Eclectic Bedroom

Mike Andrews Styling Gif Nightstand Blue Masculine Antique How To

Despite being part of the lifestyle mafia, Mike Andrews by Inheritance as well as his partner Paul don’t necessarily keep their surfaces perfectly styled 24 hours a day. They are a disgusting excuse for a fashionable gay couple, I know (in which was a joke friends).

In which bedroom had a lot of great elements, certainly, so when we photographed in which space for the book we pulled them together to make the nightstand, bed, as well as even the floor tell a story, to illustrate some styling ideas for the readers. While you don’t need to keep your house styled all the time, there are times when you want things to feel/look prettier than normal, either for yourself or your guests. in which’s what we do here.

Their bedroom, of course, features a lot of super interesting elements – a huge canopy bed in which dominates the space, using a map hung on the headboard, all on a brick wall, with some navy paint on a few walls. in which’s weird, off-beat, as well as totally interesting. The space was tight so they had a smaller nightstand, as well as while I’m sure they do sleep with pillows, the before shot had none.


What we did: We steamed the bed to give in which the perfect “I just crawled out of in which” soft as well as cozy look, as well as added the following – a rug, pillows, books underneath the bed, a piece of art to help break up the lines, as well as accessories for the nightstand. You can see in which all in action:


I know what many of you have going through your heads right currently, so I’m just going to address in which currently rather than have a comment battle – “there is usually NO space on the nightstand for anything you actually need.” True. Styling for editorial photographs is usually meant to tell a story about a person. For real life I would certainly just put flowers on the nightstand, with maybe a ring dish, nevertheless to create a narrative of the people in which live here (imaginary or not), we wanted in which to be more engaging full of “moments,” as well as sometimes these moments overshadow function.

Sometimes I agree with editorial styling, I want to see an aspirational story using a perfectly lived in/styled room. as well as sometimes I’m on the opposite where I’m like “there is usually no way in which those people live like in which, so just stop.” On in which Website we do try to do a healthy dose of both. On Sara’s post yesterday you saw her free-standing closet, as well as yes, in which was so perfectly styled with the right colored purses as well as jackets, everything draped in a lovely way, as well as even I was like “I’ve got to get one of those in my room” despite the fact in which I KNOW in which in which wouldn’t look like in which in real life after 10 minutes.

Inside case of the “too crowded nightstand” I think in which’s up for debate, as well as I’m on both sides. I love how in which overall picture looks nevertheless I’m annoyed in which I have no place to put one of my 15 glasses of water in which I need every night. I styled in which shot by the way (I think Scott as well as I were both there in which day, so I don’t remember who exactly did in which dirty deed).

Thoughts? Are you down for editorial storytelling or do you get annoyed by stylists tricks? Or like me, BOTH?
