I’m having a bit of trouble making this room more masculine. Kaisei is my ideal in a father and a father as Bah Nee of Jem fame says:
A Father should be a good man
A father should be wise
A father should be someone with laughter in his eyes.
So Kaisei’s study should be comforting, full of knowledge and have a few happy things in it to cheer up it’s denizen.
I can think of plenty of feminine things to fill the room with, but this is a man. My ideal hubby is a scientist. Kaisei is an engineer and industrial designer. So design and physics books with an interest in art to balance out the left and right brain. There are two people I know who live like this. They are great IDS professors at my grad school. One designed two of the world’s most beloved sports cars and the other is a great painters as well as a brilliant automotive designer. The two of them Tom Matano, Hideki Matsuda plus the great Gerald Pannone (another great teacher) make up Kaisei Jasai. THe world’s most perfect dad.
Here are a few bit of inspiration to aid my search for refined masculinity in interior design.
