A Man's Home

Worldly
Style

Nothing manages to give your place that unique or collected feel more than an interesting assemledge of vintage accessories. Handsome, masculine objects that not only add some color and texture to the space, but also inject a sense of history into your home. After all, your decor should reflect your style, but it should also reflect your life. The stories of where you've been and the experiences you've had are told through the personal mementos you bring back from your adventures. But there are also those old school items that always look right in a man's house. Score an old beat-up globe, tuck it into a bookcase, sit it on a coffee table or atop a stack of books, and appreciate the stylish sentimentality it brings. And if you don't want to drop a lot of scratch on a fancy vintage globe, just head to a local antique shop or Goodwill store and you'll likely find a standard scholastic version (like the ones above) for just a few bucks.
