Bachelor's Pad or Feminine?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This is Josh's new apartment back home in Montreal. I told him it looks like a bachelor's pad but he argued it's feminine ("note the flowers.") The couch, bookshelf, dining room table and chairs are all black. There's a caveman's hand holding the bananas. What do you think?

PLEASE be generous and vote!

Only the couch is black. The dining table, chairs, and bookshelf are a "chocolate brown" :)

Also, behind the flowers is a large painting and a woman's coat.

Maybe you're influenced by the shot glasses, which are a university staple of man tom foolery. Don't be.

I'll probably take them down soon: they were just there when I had nothing else on the walls.

Instead, focus on the flowers, the soft blue and beige coffee table, the colourful paintings on the wall, and the solitary candle in the green blown glass. And vote with your heart.

Having seen it in person, I must say that it is indeed a pristine pad...but it still smells of wet paint...

Thats a den of seduction if I've ever seen one.

Keesler said...

Nice! Way better than what my guy friends apt's look like!

A black floor lamp would complete it though.

Ellie said...

I would say it's quite neutral looking; not overly feminine at all!

K said...

Certainly seems to have a hint of a bachelors auroma to it. But who am I to judge.

Josh sounds a little defensive. Relax enjoy it. It's your pad.

Josh said...

anonymous - how have you been? Up for going to Future Shop with me next week? ;)

Supersoulfly - haha. Maybe you've never seen it, then.

Keesler -- actually, you can make out a black floor lamp in the mirror!

Ellie - I'll settle for neutral: that middle bowl of residential porridge

k - thanks for the advice, k. This post is in response to Eva saying that my place looks like it's a bachelor pad right out of an ikea catelogue. But you're right, and if you'll excuse me I think I'll grab one of those bananas and eat it on my black couch.

Helena said...

Hmmm... I wouldn't say feminine. But it doesn't really have that bachelor pad thing going either.

Still Born said...

QUITE a valiant effort. not too masculine, but that couch just screams 'man'.

Forrest Rivers said...

The pad of a man who's willing to accomodates his feminine influences whilst still proclaiming he's a man with the banana holder. Although now I've just read it back I'm sure freudians will have a field day with the symbolism of a caveman's hand holding bananas... It's all good though, the pad of a man in touch with women.

hahaha you guys are hilarious. i love it.

it's a metrosexual bachelor pad? is that the consensus? enjoy the break from your family, babe.

I think the place would look beter if the flowers were a fresh, vibrant bouquet. those look like dry (dead) flowers you put in water. just a fuzzy photo?

daeguowl said...

eva, he was happy wit neutral and then you go and ruin it by calling him metrosexual....he doesn't prance round in a sarong does he? I think it is male but someone who is grown up and moved on from frat boy stage.

Josh said...

thank you, Daeguowl. I agree.

Josh said...

I miss you. Can't wait to entertain you in my cave of seduction.

Eva Karrin McKinnon said...
