Do You Want Your Dude’s House To Be Nicer Than Yours?
Interior designer Kimberlee Paige Hanson has just launched a new firm called “Sexy Bachelor Pad” which focuses on transforming post-college bachelor-pad disaster zones into hip, chic and sexy spaces. According to Hanson, “Women are nesters, so when they walk into a home where a man has really created atmosphere, it creates a different kind of connection with the man, and it makes them see him in a different way. We try to give him a little edge in that arena.” And her firm’s catchphrase is, tellingly, “Trust us. You need our help.” Since so many residential-focused interior designers get their start working on bachelor homes and apartments, a firm explicitly geared towards unmarried men with a good amount of disposable income makes sense! But get a load of this transformation video, featuring one apartment. Now, imagine yourself walking into that apartment for “post-date drinks”—what the hell would you think? For me, it’s a little too aesthetically pleasing and a touch too done-up—c’mon, what guy has a spice rack? (Uh, I’m decently into cooking and even I don’t have a full-on spice rack!) What say you: Does a done-up apartment make a guy sexier or slightly off-putting? [Daily Candy]
