The Ultimate Bachelor Pad—Essentials of Decor

Whether they are recent college grads or newly-divorced single guys
striking out on their own, all bachelors probably aspire to have the
kind of hip, über bachelor pad immortalized by Frank Sinatra in the 1963
movie Come Blow Your Horn. Frank’s swinging bachelor’s apartment was the
acme of sophisticated Rat Pat cool, but a lot has changed in the past
fifty years. Can you get away with having that stripper pole you had in the frat house in today’s bachelor Pad? We will answer all the hard questions like that as we consider a few essentials of décor
and style in designing the modern bachelor pad.

You’re Not in College Anymore, Son

So lose all the college decorating décor that seemed fun and casual back
then—thumbtacked posters of scantily-clad super models and neon
Budweiser signs are not the look you’re going for now. Think mature,
think clean and uncluttered, think sexy. You want a space that reflects
who you are, so don’t be afraid to go with masculine touches like animal
print rugs, but the trash cans cannot be overflowing. It’s not a dorm
room and it certainly isn’t a frat house. It’s your bachelor pad, your
single guy’s lair—and there’s a huge difference.

What You Need—the Basics

You need comfortable furniture that doesn’t look like it came from a
garage sale. Spend a little more to get good pieces that speak to your
impeccable style and taste. You are a classy guy, right? Get some help
from your girlfriend or sister if you are style challenged. The basic
furniture pieces like sofa and coffee table speak volumes about you so
choose wisely. In the bedroom, go with masculine pieces that look
sophisticated. You will need some art on the walls and this should
reflect your personality, but again, err on the side of sophisticated
masculinity. Locally-sourced anything is big now, so finding original
art from local artists is a great way to keep it local. Leave the tired
Monet and Picasso prints for somebody else. Be your own man with a
unique style and don’t be afraid to go a little avant garde—it’s hip and

The Fun Stuff

It wouldn’t be an ultimate bachelor pad without some big boy toys. The
triumvirate of modern bachelor pad must-haves is big screen TV, pool
table, and bar. Get a good flat screen TV (you know HD is no longer the
latest, greatest, right?) and of course surround sound is always nice to
have. Try not to make your TV the focal point of the living room and if
you can conceal it in a stylish cabinet when it’s not in use, even
better. The pool table is a big expenditure if you do it right. You
don’t want a banged-up piece that looks like a Craig’s List special. The
bar is crucial in establishing your credibility as the sophisticated
gentleman bachelor. If you can’t swing a true wet bar, a dry bar is
still better than no bar. Vintage is always cool, so you may be able to
find some great vintage bar accessories on Etsy or Ebay to ramp up the
sophistication factor—things like cocktail shakers and glassware.

If you do everything else right, a whimsical touch like a stripper pole
in the bedroom can be pulled off. It is all in the total presentation.
You want to create an impression of a clean, comfortable, and inviting
space that is sophisticated and fun. Hint: just watch Come Blow Your
Horn for inspiration if you get stuck. You will find an appropriately
whimsical stripper pole and plenty of other great accessories to aid
your cause at


Belated Merry Christmas and Advance Happy New Year!

Belated Merry Christmas from our family to yours! What did everyone do for Christmas? I have been really busy lately but my Christmas this year has been one of the best Christmas ever since I arrived here in the states. It felt like everyone was closer this year compared to the previous years. We spent our Christmas at my sister-in-laws house and pretty much everyone went there and celebrate with us. We opened our presents and everyone was happy with the gifts that they received from the family. I wish each one of you to have a prosperous New Year's ahead and May our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ will continue to shower us with good health and more blessings. Happy New Year folks!

Reviews About Online Games

Are you one of the many people that like to play casino games online but are not sure where to go to? Well it turns out that there are actually websites that you can go to that have reviews on various websites so you don’t have to go looking around endlessly for a good website. This is really an awesome service because many people can tell you from experience that it is quite difficult to find a good online casino game for the reason that there are so many out there. One of these オンラインカジノ or online casino review websites is actually in Japanese, but they have links for other websites in various languages including English. This website of course is Online Casino Ippon dot com and I have to say that it looks really nice because many of these other great casino websites are just a click away, so why not check them out, you will definitely be glad that you did.

Happy Birthday!

My husband is celebrating his birthday today and officially the first day of Fall, what an awesome combination indeed! Our plan for today is to go to his Dad's house and have lunch with them and after that we will go home to celebrate more. We can't do so much today since it is Sunday but we will continue his birthday celebration on Tuesday where I plan to take him to the shooting range, movies and go to a fancy restaurant. Hopefully, everything will turn out great! Happy weekend you all.

Bar Supplies

Are you one of the many people out there who are in the hotel or motel business? Well, this is actually a great business because no matter what the economic situation the country may be in, there is always a need for hotels or motels. I know where I live it is not considered a big tourist spot, however, there are many military families that stay here for an extended amount of time, and sometimes they decide to stay at hotels for extended periods of time. Still there are some people who are visiting family and friends and so the hotel business is constantly in demand. If you happen to own a Hotel you might be wondering, is there a Hotel Supply Online? Well it turns that you can get hotel supplies or Hotel Bar Supplies online for a great deal.  If you live in a big city such as Atlanta in particular, there is a place called Peach Suite where you can get Atlanta Hotel Supply for a very good price. And even if you don’t live there, they can ship to your location, and best of all, there is free shipping on orders of $500.00 or more, so why not check them out today? You will definitely be glad that you did.

Happy Labor Day to All Working Americans!

My husband and I are enjoying our Labor Day off today from our places of work. We are thrilled to spend time together especially that we have been working like maniacs lately and we normally don't see each other. I am wishing everyone a happy Labor Day and more blessings to us!

I Love Oldies Music

In this day in age it seems that it can be difficult to find good music such as classic rock and oldies without having to drive all over town. Fortunately because of the internet you can actually stop at one place in order to get the classic rock that you like the most, and best of all you can download it for a reasonable price and even order Music CDs that can be difficult to come across. At iOldies Music Store, they really have a huge variety of oldies music and classic rock that you are sure to love. The music actually ranges from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and even up into the 1980s so that you can get music that you are someone you know really likes listening to. I know that my father-in-law really loves music from the 1950s and 60s, and I wasn’t sure where to get the music that he likes until I came across iOldies. It is actually funny, he usually complains about how most of the music that he listens to isn’t as good as the music he grew up on, so I am glad that I found this website because I will know exactly what to get him for his birthday as well as Christmas. What I really like is that they have a Jukebox feature that will help you find out the music you are looking for by genre and by the decade, such as 50s up into the 80s. If you are someone you know really likes classic rock or any oldies music for that matter, I highly recommend IOldies.
