A mans own room

I have been hunting around the net for a few things that the husband might like in his "man room" he already has designs on the Deer skin I got for my birthday. Sometimes even wearing it as a cape as if to shield himself from all the lace and sequins that litter our house. Hey hands off! So if he does get his way this kind of stuff should sit along side it nicely.
As he is a lover of the Anchorman movie, I'm assuming he will want the ambience that comes from the smell of rich mahogany and many leather bound books to top it off! I wonder if Yankee candle can help? Balsam & Cedar or Autumn woods are possibilities. Note to husband :- Lets buy that little house we saw in the Oldtown on Saturday and your man room will be here all the sooner!

And these places are great too!

What a great idea! These are some great finds for your man :) I have a husband who loves Anchorman as well. He's a big fan of the leather chairs and antique books!

perfect choices and inspiration for a man room. Rich dark wood always makes them happy (and helps to steer them away from laminated pine furniture and plastic office chairs) px
