Mood Board: The [Woman Approved] Gentleman’s Lounge

Mood Board: The [Woman Approved] Gentleman’s Lounge

Step aside overstuffed corduroy recliners and tacky football posters. I recently created a mood board for a gentleman’s lounge that is attractive enough to appeal to women, too.

In order to do this, I combined masculine decor elements like animal skins, leather, ammo and a lighter with more feminine touches, including plush textures, a hint of purple (forget the pale pink trend here!) and metallics. Here’s what I selected:

Mood board for a gentleman's lounge designed by Kathy Corbet Interiors.

Items starting from the top left and moving clockwise:

  • Elitis Giant Croco Wallpaper feels rich, manly and elegent.
  • Kravet Couture paisley fabric has feminine tones that are still subtle enough to work in a man-centric room.
  • Social Light leather handled lighter, available through Kathy Corbet Interiors, feels classic and traditional.
  • Weitzner Wide Wale Corduroy updates and old guy classic with a luxurious tone and texture.
  • Wesley Hall leather has an elegant, horse country feel.
  • 66 Special Nail Head Trim by DKei adds amps up the high-end, classic vibe.
  • Brentano Fabrics Sting Ray Velvet adds that metallic sheen that takes the look from old fashioned to modern.
  • Crossville Metallic Mosaic Tile adds visual interest with a masculine color palette.

I can help you incorporate these elements into your home or work with you to create the mood board that meets your needs and exceeds your dreams.
