Bow Tie Coffee Table

Is your dad a bow tie kind of guy? This hand-inlaid wood coffee table would look perfect at the front and center of his home office.

Blue Library

A blue corduroy chair is paired with a fluffy white pillow, bringing texture to this masculine library. The blue color scheme continues with the bookshelf and velvet window treatments, giving Dad the perfect spot to read a book.

Wool Accent Piece

Although wool in upholstery can be uncomfortable during summer months, it can be really cozy during winter. To incorporate this popular men's fabric into your decor, choose accent pieces that don't get used often but will make a big impact on a room's style. Design by Brian Parick Flynn

Masculine Game Room

This basement game room is the ultimate spot for entertaining. The main area is equipped with a home theater, complete with eight leather recliners, a billiard table and a wine cellar. What guy wouldn't love to relax here?

Navy Blazer Chest

This chest, with an all-over navy lacquer and drawer pulls that look like buttons, resembles a man's sports blazer. The gold-finish legs add some femininity, for a look both you and your man will love.

Rustic Bedroom

Combine reclaimed wood elements, plaid fabric and leather for a rustic-themed bedroom that will make you feel like you're camping outdoors. To keep things light, add fresh flowers in a vase on the nightstand.

Striped Sweater Rug

This striped cable-knit sweater rug by FLOR keeps your toes warm while bringing a cozy, inviting feel to the room. The thick, multicolored stripes add a manly touch.

Herringbone Dresser

The subtle herringbone and argyle patterns in this dresser are inspired by menswear clothing, but they bring a delicate, feminine look to the space.

Gender Neutral Bedroom

Design a master bedroom you both will love. This bedroom is filled with different patterns — masculine and feminine — and is tied together with a cohesive color scheme. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Pinstripe + Cowhide

The deep red wall, pinstriped wingback chairs and cowhide rug are all design elements that would fit in any man cave. Design by Kerrie Kelly

Pinstripe Wallpaper

If you'd like something a little less permanent than pinstriped furniture, take the stripes to the wall. The stripes on this charcoal gray wallpaper are comprised of small polka dots. To lighten the room, choose neutral furnishings. Photo courtesy of Coleccion Alexandra

Scholarly Home Office

If your dad is the scholarly type, then this spot is for him. Plaid curtains dress up the floor-to-ceiling windows, antique globes sit atop a glass table and Middle Eastern accents bring a well-traveled look.

Necktie Coffee Table

A red leather sofa makes a bold statement in this library, but the necktie coffee table steals the show. Hand-inlaid wood pieces give the table a striped effect, which resembles Dad's favorite tie.

Plaid Wallpaper

Choosing bold wallpaper design doesn't have to make a space feel cluttered. Sleek furniture and a floral-patterned throw pillow keep the room from feeling too masculine. Photo courtesy of Thibaut

Menswear Living Room

Menswear-inspired patterns, such as plaid, houndstooth and stripes add a fun yet laidback look to this living area. A color scheme of navy, denim and red fills the room without making it feel too small. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn
