Decorating Tip of the month: Wall Decor for Him

Whether you’re shopping for your new apartment, converting a guest room into a man cave, or upgrading the shared home office, it might be time to dedicate more of your joint living space to his personal style and interests.  We have some fantastic wall décor tips to create a unique sense of masculine flare.

You don’t have to be a design expert to choose art.  Just follow these two simple guidelines and you’ll have some great ideas for updating his space in no time flat.

First, what’s his design aesthetic?

Guys aren’t always transparent about their style, so if you’re having a hard time figuring out what his might be, take a careful look around his space, even in his closet: What design elements or styles does he generally gravitate toward?  Vintage? Modern? Classic?  Casual? Or an eclectic mix of color and texture (not including the bath towels on the floor).   Understanding this is a good starting point for finding the right kind of photograph for his space.

Then, think about his special interests and passions.

Given the depth and breadth of content available on photos.com, focusing on his hobbies and loves will help direct you towards specific images that fall within his design aesthetic.  Here are examples from Sports, Music and Travel, but of course that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Jack Robinson was born in Mississippi in 1928 and grew up in Clarksdale. In the early 50s, he honed his craft through photographing his life and friends in the New Orleans French Quarter. Through friends made in New Orleans, Jack moved to New York City in 1957 and found work in freelance fashion photography for various New York advertisement agencies. In 1959, his photograph of Isabella Albonico was selected as a cover photograph for LIFEMagazine. Through the early 1960s, Jack was a frequent contributor to the New York Times Sunday Magazine and the Sunday Times Fashion Supplement. In 1965, he followed Carrie Donovan to Vogue, where he worked as a freelance photographer until 1972.  His photographs appeared over 500 times in Vogue, making Jack one of Vogue’s most prolific contributors. After his return to Memphis, Jack spent the remainder of his life working as a stained glass designer.  He passed away in 1997.The Jack Robinson Archive, LLC was created in 2003 to preserve and promote Jack’s legacy and body of work. In November 2011, the Archive fulfilled Jack’s dream of a coffee table book of his photographs with the release of Jack Robinson On Show: Portraits 1958-72. Jack left behind thousands of negatives, and the archive is still in the process of scanning and restoring his beautiful work. Each new envelope of negatives offers countless surprises. Business partnerships with Getty Images, Staley-Wise Gallery in New York, and Starwood Hotels have been critical to the Archive’s development.   A selection of Jack’s work is available online at www.robinsonarchive.com, and on permanent display at The Jack Robinson Gallery, 400 South Front Street in downtown Memphis, TN. Hours are Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 5 PM.
