In Western Sydney’s Oakhurst, House Rules’ loveable larrikins, Laith and George, were delighted by the transformation of Laith’s dismal digs into a luxurious bachelor pad. We’ve got plenty of stylish ideas to get the suave and sophisticated look in your own home — whether giving your teenage son’s room a makeover or creating a divine den for dad.

Elegant anchors

An elegant masculine interior is a balancing act of function and form. Select sizeable anchor pieces, like a classic leather sofa, king-size bed and entertainer’s dining table.

Rich palette

Opt for a rich palette with heritage hints in forest green, maroon, navy blue — or even black if you’re feeling brave! Get comfortable with dark colours in your luxe lad’s lair.

Material world

Strong natural materials like timber and stone are a staple of a stylish gentleman’s interior. Pair timber with leather, velvet or some glints of gold for a lavish experience.

Sophisticated statements

Add elegance with mid-century, Art Deco or heritage influences. A statement television unit, mirror or art work offers another level of sophistication.
