The bachelor’s place is a venue for self-expression. It might be a house, a one-bedroom apartment or a second story single, but it’s the one place where a guy can display his things, and experience them every time he’s at home.
These days, a handful of bachelors are developing a sense for interior design that, for generations, was something left to the female companion in their life. However, the rest of the ranks are still sporting a few garage sale pictures, and the ubiquitous, Led Zeppelin poster. There’s nothing wrong with Zeppelin, and pictures are one way to make a place come to life. But, why not park the current batch of hangings for a few, and go on line to barewalls.com. A Tuscany print or a Fenway Park sign for the front door might jump right out and call your name. If music celebrities are a passion, why not try using a black and white poster of John Lennon, Miles Davis, or even The Rat Pack for a more sophisticated look. You can find them on the same page as your Zeppelin crew. Did someone say Paige?
To begin with, we’re not talking about applying for a personal loan in order to finance a re-design of your place. This is about highlighting some areas with a some extremely affordable wall art. The cost will amaze you and there’s a good chance you’ll re-generate some enthusiasm for your home. You might have a look at the Surf Dancers tapestry as a possibility for a headboard piece, or to add color to the bathroom. On the other hand, some might prefer a master’s work along the lines of Salvador Dali’s explosion in these areas. The best way to go about the re-design, is to put some thought into one area at a time.

For some reason, all guys seem to wind up with an antique, like a lamp stand or a parson’s table that doesn’t go with anything else in the place. The piece may be in good condition, and even though it really doesn’t suit the guy’s persona, it is a handy place to set things. Besides, it’s worth a few dollars and tossing it, or giving it away is out of the question. In my case, I used my grandfathers sideboard table for my flat screen TV — however, by hanging a few cool movie posters along the walls next to it, (Pulp Fiction, or Fight Club, or even a framed Goodfellas Gangster poster above it) the stand all but disappears and that area of the room takes on some personality. If you wanted to class your place up a bit more, you could go for some framed black and white movie posters of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, and of course The Three Stooges. Nothing says to your date “I gots class” like a quality Stooges poster.
Browsing art stores and second hand shops for a fine art print to hang in an entry hall, or an outdoor adventure print to hang next to the refrigerator, is a fifty-fifty venture, at best. Any place that specializes in framed renderings is going to be expensive, and another hand-me-down is not going to accomplish the upgrade we’re going for. Go to barewalls.com and take a look through the movie posters from any era, or enter your favorite actor or actresses name, and they will have something you’ll like.
Utilizing the time and energy on-line, at barewalls.com, is going to produce more options, in far less time and without any inconvenience. One look at the likes of Riding the Tube, or Courage-Snowboard and you’ll be wondering why you haven’t had this kind of fun before now. It’s all a matter of what you like and want to represent, and if you want to do it in a subtle way, or full on.
Check out the catalog at barewalls.com, and list a few possibilities for each area where you want something on the wall. Now take a look at the pricing, framing, and delivery options that are available, and you’ll start to get excited about your place again. This is one upgrade that won’t tap a pocketbook, but will definitely qualify as high end.
