Manly Monday: What a Real Man Thinks

My boyfriend is sitting next to me as I write this post, and is rushing me so we can watch the original Wall Street movie, to prep me for the sequel.  So, rather than wracking my brain for a description of this room, I decided to ask him if he likes this room.  His reaction:

  • "What's that?" referring to the wood bowl-like container on the table
  • "Is that supposed to be a dining table?  It's a picnic table, right?"
  • "I don't know how comfortable I'd be sitting in one of those chairs for dinner."
  • "Maybe with a pipe and a robe it would be comfortable."

So, that's today's take on Manly Monday by a real man sitting on a sofa next to me as we wait for our Thai food to be delivered.  Designer:  Jeff Andrews


  1. Erica that's so funny:D
    I actually laughed out loud! He sounds like most men. They say what they think and I love that!
    My husband doesn't even notice when I completely change the wall color in a room.

  2. so true! I wouldn't want to be one of the people who get's "the bench seat"

  3. I don't think that I would want to sit on the bench to eat dinner ... for aesthetic an A, but for actual function D-

  4. It's all about the double identical mirrors and chairs. So cozy.

  5. Haha great post! It's so funny to hear what guys think of our interior design obsessions!

  6. So cute! I love hearing what real men think!

  7. Yes, that sounds like exactly the sort of thing my husband would say!

  8. Its so fun what guys think about it all:) Great post:)
    Kisses my dear

  9. This man says those leather wingbacks are hot!

  10. His reaction was really funny, but he did say that he liked the look. I agree, those leather chairs are so cool and the leaning mirrors are so dramatic. I could totally picture Thanksgiving dinner in this room being beautiful.


Thanks for reading. What do you think?
