Kermit said: “It’s not easy being green.” Oh Kermie, I think green is beautiful. It’s the color of nature, and new beginnings. Of money and survival, of going for it. It’s rough and rustic, delicate and beautiful. It’s shades span the muddy and the pure. It’s a color that could work in all seasons, and for a man or a women, a little girl or a tiny baby boy.
Not long ago I had a visitor to my apartment and she declared it the ultimate Bachelorette Pad. I laughed, and have to say with No. 4, I’m guilty as charged. Still it made me think about what my place might look like if I designed my place with a man in mind – not just any man, but a manly man – one that likes the outdoors. A city place with an ode to the outdoors.

Since it just occurred to me, and I am not actually going to change the design of my beloved No. 4, I chose to consider just the bedroom. I like mossy greens, and evergreens, textures that evoke the outdoors, and of course something that would actually grow there.
The big question is …. is it manly enough for your man.
