The bachelor life has much to commend it, and where better to enjoy its advantages than at home: no grubby little hands to contend with, no compromises to make on furnishings or decorating colours, no feminine knick-knacks on the shelves, no rows over washing-up or phone calls. On the contrary, the bachelors' abode is by and large designed solely to express masculine needs and desires. Drawing on three archetypal male characters as portrayed in literature and film for as long as we can remember, Bachelor Style explores the full gamut of masculine style: the charming playboy with a slick pad designed for seduction; the gentleman surrounded by emblems of his good taste and breeding; and the aesthete with the time and space to give full vent to his artistic tendencies. Bachelor Style glorifies the single life of the twenty-first century man. Familiar style icons would be perfectly at home here. Think Humphrey Bogart, Oscar Wilde or 007. All would be sure to find a suitable home in the pages of this evocative and inspiring book.

Reviews

An intriguing peek at what men aspire to when left to design their homes themselves, free from feminine frilliness and habits. But not just any men. These are the rich, the famous, the talented, the artistic, the wealthy and the playboy with homes ranging from Suffolk cottages to London lofts, converted bakeries to Parisienne apartments, all tastefully decorated in their owner's individual styles. From combined office/homes to country retreats, they display a masculinity often gently tinged with an unexpected femininity. Not all black leather and minimalist but artfully cluttered and classically stylish reflecting the men's talents, passions and needs. A fascinating, lavishly illustrated book on a unique subject for men and women alike. - Lucy Watson
