In the modern world supposed to believe that beauty and design interior engaged woman. Most modern women strive to have a nice and cozy nest. And if you ask men what kind of design they prefer?
We asked the architect Kira Salmanovo, a specialist in men’s creation of interiors, what actually men want.
If you refer to the practice, men do not understand worse in interior design, they’re just more appreciate simplicity, functionality, comfort, than women. They have their own unusual idea for modern style.
It is hard to imagine a man who would dare in his apartment Wallpaper peach color. But the assertion that the male gender chooses blue or gray shades, it would be a mistake. In most cases, colors in the living room depends on the interior, from living people, but no sex. Everyone thinks that the young, active, creative guy wants creativity in his apartment, and he may rather to prefer the more quiet colors, minimalistic interior. From this we can conclude that age category, it doesn’t matter when you choice interior.
Someone thinks that, the man more advanced age, who runs a big company, you would prefer dark or neutral tones. But here most people go wrong. If a man’s at home waiting for a large family and a couple of dogs, most of all, he loves the color Burgundy and wants to build his workshop. The conclusion from this is: don’t judge people in professional occupations.
In men’s interiors there are no restrictions on color, he can choose strict and laconic black tones or even shades of white and quiet mixed with lilac, mustard and turquoise.
Rough shape? Forget about it
The impression that men’s interior should be filled with coarse, massive, brutal materials such as untreated solid wood, stone, iron hard, rough shapes.
Of course lace curtains or curtains with ruffles are not interested in men, but it is possible to pick up textile Wallpaper with a simple and unique pattern, choose the furniture with beautiful shapes, lay the carpet with a big pile to feet were always comfortable. Do not forget that the male is endowed with aesthetic taste and can create a beautiful combination on the walls in the living room or bedroom.
You need to stop to dream, and must act, plan
By nature the male has an analytical mind, strategic approach, are accustomed to act. A pronounced feature of men is the tendency to rational use of space, convenient layout, functionality in everything and everywhere. In the field of design there is the KISS principle (make easier, etc), all this is really to be attributed to men.
Scientists say that men’s thinking has nothing to do with women. When men think of space, they work the left part of the brain, this implies rationality, functionality.
On the one hand, it seems that the Spartan conditions that minimized space and action is a perfect choice for men interior. But it is not, men need more space, unlike women, to feel the spirit of freedom and independence. Modern man chooses an open floor plan, no special restrictions with less furniture and other equipment.
If you think that the male gender prefers technical bells and whistles, modern furniture, transformers, and the interior below was filled with the latest technology, you too, can make mistakes. Often a male design without unnecessary bells and whistles are more popular. House for vacation, and often a man simply needs to get away from everything and nothing to invent.
The only conclusion will be that it is not necessary to divide the interior space into male and female.
