In preparation for this series, this edition inspired by House Beautiful’s feature, I polled a few of my male friends; “what are your favorite colors? What interior colors do you feel most comfortable in?” I asked.
My Daddy’s favorite has always been a deep green- hunter green. However, Neutral colors were the resounding answer, browns, & warm greys especially. Think the colors you may find in an old map or portrait- like Picasso’s Portrait of Dora Maar
We have found that men feel comfortable in interiors with schemes featuring the following hues:
Charcoal mixed with Classic Black (even better with stripes)
Cowboy Boot Brown
Burnt Orange- this also translates into Copper tones & marries well with medium to dark green tones
The other colors men love could happen to do with their local sports team loyalties, as we’ve seen our fair share of requests for NC State/Carolina Hurricanes Red (shown in the “man cave” below)
or Carolina Blue
What colors do the men in your life, love?
