In Search Of Masculine Color Scheme

By Roger Hazard

Roger,

I have been researching color schemes in search of something to make a room appear more masculine. It seems that all the suggestions I've found are based on a brown/wood color scheme. Are there any other colors that could make a room more masculine?

Dennis,

Just about any color can be used in a masculine way. However, it's easiest to classify colors into "cool" and "warm." Warm colors have a red base and cool colors have a blue base. Colors that have a red base - and therefore would be considered warm - will appear more masculine. This includes but definitely is not limited to browns. Your local paint store can show you difference between warm and cool colors.
