On the Couch with Frank Goldstin
We asked CEO of Hudson Home, Frank Goldstin, for his advice on creating a sophisticated bachelor pad.
A Little Bit of Everything
MHI: So to sum up, what are your top must-haves for a man’s home?
FG: Dimmers. A TV that’s not taking up the entire space. Showcasing some of the things that you may use to entertain, like a wine display or a creative way to put out cocktails. Interesting art work that you can find by going to a very inexpensive antique or home decor store. Have some warm paint that gives you a nice even palette to your home. Invest in some window treatments that add some character and style. Wood blinds and some drapery panels from a place like Crate and Barrel add a really nice touch. It’s about addressing a little bit of everything.
For a man who is very concerned about his living environment, if you’re able to, consult with a pro to capture the essence of how you are going to live in the space. There are some decorators that charge an hourly rate. For a little bit of an investment, it can save you a lot of headaches and embarrassment later when you bring a girl over.
