A Man's Home
The latest trend in hip hotels is to design the rooms less like a hotel room and more like a personal home—open, loft-like floor plans outfitted with eclectic furnishings, modernist lighting and bespoke amenities. Case in point: Philadelphia's new Roost, an extended-stay hotel with a boutique-style update that ticks all of our design boxes. Herewith, a few interior cues that you can use when pulling together your home.

Opt for a few pieces with a sharp, retro design. Whether truly vintage from the 1950s and '60s, or influenced from the time period, these items have an inherent masculine quality that will always look right in a man's place.

Mix & Match
The key to a handsome home is for it to look assembled, not like a set. Combine complementary styles—like an old school lamp and rug with more modern pieces that have clean lines like a simple sofa and natural wood stools.

The snake plant, also known as mother-in-law's tongue, is an easy to care for house plant that doesn't require much water or light. It grows fast, plus it's great at filtering indoor air.

A Chill Bedroom
Keep the bedroom clean, calm and simple with crisp white bedding and a nightstand (with a drawer to keep clutter tucked away). A good looking table lamp is a sculptural element that has a practical purpose.
