Tips for Decorating Your Bachelor Pad for Spring

Keep the manly touch when setting up your home for the season

Keep a masculine undertone to your seasonal set up.

Spring does not have to be all about flowers and pastel colors, especially when you are decorating your bachelor pad.

Stray away from the usual spring shades and embrace the use of natural, neutral, and Earth tones. These shades cater to masculine designs and keep the atmosphere clean and simple.

Gentlemen, don’t be afraid of colors — just tone down the hues and choose a single color palette that works for you.

• Rustic Bucket Planter Centerpieces: Instead of pastel pails, use rustic buckets or planters and fill them with plants instead of flowers. Keep neutral colors for a more masculine feel.

• River Rock Display: Fill clear glass centerpieces with river rocks and accent with a single white flower or a votive candle.

• Wheatgrass Centerpiece: Fill the center of a square planter with wheatgrass and line the outside with white flowers for contrast.

• Button Napkin Rings:  Glue buttons onto a fabric square and use ribbons to tie neutral colored fabric napkins.
