:: Learn about my Style ( powered by imagini )


You have the bachelor pad look down to a T. Your home is sleek, masculine and generally understated. Only those in the know can spot the touches of genuinely 'flash' kit - the designer logos, the top-of-the-range gizmos. It all looks effortlessly cool but only you know the time, thought and energy (working too) that has gone into getting everything spot on.

  • Living Room

Playboy, gent, aesthete - your living room is a shrine to bachelorism. The masculine look finds its apogee in the bachelor pad, and at the heart of every bachelor pad is the living space, with its sharp lines and a hedonistic approach to life that's all about having fun and very little to do with mundane chores. This is the lifestyle of a 007, and the fact that both are fictional characters says it all: this look is about illusion and seduction and a dash of hustler chutzpah. This is a look that can't take clutter: retro accessories, however, can work incredibly well, from a streamlined lamp to a vintage jukebox. Fresh, bright colours at the 'cool' end of the spectrum are welcoming and airy, while retro prints and patterns add instant style. Whether you're chilling out, socialising or surfing the net, your living room's a place that reflects the way you live your life.

  • Bedroom

You're in retro heaven in your bedroom. Sleep is fundamentally important to our well being. In busy towns and cities, noise can often hamper a good night's sleep. Soft furnishings really do absorb sound, and touch is such an important sense in the bedroom, from crisp, linen sheets to wool or even sheepskin underfoot. You show a quirky sense of style in your bedroom, using vibrant colours to make a bold statement.

  • Dining Room

You're a maestro of minimalism using carefully chosen ingredients. At home, 'less-is-more' simplicity appears effortlessly stylish. With so little on show, every single item comes under scrutiny, so it's important that you give time and thought to your choice of china, glass and cutlery. Try to avoid the 'designer cliche' trap, whereby every single piece has impeccable provenance: at best this looks like showing off, at worst it's sadly predictable. When it comes to entertaining, you like good, freshly made food with an informal touch.

  • Home Office

There's no doubting who's boss in your home office. Even the most dedicated workaholic and hard-core party animal has bills to pay. An allocated home office or 'work station' makes mundane book-keeping as painless as possible. Black leather upholstery twinned with stainless steel and glass can hover on the edge of cliche. Look for inspiration from classic Sixties films such as The Thomas Crown Affair and early [James] Bond movies to see just how well the look works when it's done with style and conviction.

  • Conclusion

You're the consummate international playboy, at home around the world, but never more so than in your elegant 'pad' with its emphasis on hedonism and the finer things in life.
