Today’s post is for the single fellas… that’s all you men (young and old) who are living in your own place sans mom, dad, and significant other. It is a beautiful time, and probably the only time, when you will wield full control over your domain. The truth is, for many of you, the future holds a significant other who will, among other things, bring what seems like far far far too many throw pillows into your life. That said, let’s enjoy the moment and celebrate one of the many unsung perks of bachelorhood – doing up your place exactly as you see fit – all manly like.
