Bedroom lighting is mostly modern, simple and clean, either in the form of cool wall lights or practical reading spotlights. Hanging pendants on either side of the bed make a stylish alternative to wall lights, and are mostly kept small and simple in terms of design.
As for texture, these masculine bedroom ideas feature texture by the bucket-load. We love the leather detailing – like equestrian-inspired leather straps on headboards and soft furnishings – and the contrast of woods, concrete and metal.
The metal bed from Timothy Oulton is seriously cool. The bespoke wood beds are inspiring too, featuring built-in bedside drawers.
A draped cloth over a hanging rod above the bed is a more minimalist approach to a headboard, and we love the idea below of using a cane screen too. A hanging rug or tapestry would also do the trick.
Grasscloth wallpapers, and framed black and white photography create a more elegant look, while the raw concrete walls in one of the bedrooms below create an edgy, industrial vibe.
Get inspired by all our bedroom ideas for men below, for a cool and masculine master bedroom.
