Actions stations at Designer Man Cave

Woah what a busy couple of months it has been in the cave! There is a Designer Man Cave project brewing that I’m really excited to share with you as it progresses. Approached by a commercial client who is setting up a brand new business for men in Sydney CBD, I was absolutely delighted to be engaged to interior design and project manage a space for gents. I have started a visual journal of this journey for none other than the fact that this project is so freaking exciting that it needs to be documented….

Stylish dining rooms

Winter and rain has definitely settled in and with the declining appeal to go out to dine, I thought it was time to put the spotlight on dining rooms at home. It’s not often the priority in a man space and it is commonly shuffled down the to-do list after living room and bedroom. Quite often, the dining table is a multitasking area – work desk, dumping ground….but for those occasions, especially in the colder months where staying at home to eat is a more cosy, dryer option to going out, I’ve gathered some inspiration of stylish dining rooms.  Who knows, it may even encourage you to ‘get your host on’ and start entertaining….

In The Sac

I would like to introduce you to a home product that may just improve the way you sleep, forever. Combine this awesome product with the philosophy of ‘laid-back luxury’ and we have ourselves a brand that is right up the Designer Man Cave alley. In The Sac is a collection of pure bed linen that also solves the problem of overheating and sweating during the night which can cause uncomfortable, restless sleeps. Sound familiar? Knowing this is a common issue for men, I HAD to share this fabulous Sydney based company with you…

How to store your music at home

This article comes care of a fantastic question that one of my lovely subscribers asked me. I love coming up with a balance of practical and aesthetic solutions for my readers and their man space homes – it’s what I do! This is the question that inspired todays article about how to store your music at home:

I have a massive passion for music and I have a huge CD collection that I barely use anymore and secondly I am in the process of buying a turntable and speakers for my apartment. I guess my questions are what are your clients doing with CDs they no longer use, as most have moved to digital. Do they store them or is there a great modern way to display them? Then do you have any ideas for the ideal Man Cave set up for having a turntable and speakers and small record collection. When I Google pictures of the turntable and records I seem to only get old 70′s style photos or DJ set ups…. – BEN
