Inspired by the success of the Mancaves and Manscapes features in previous Decorex shows where South Africa’s most popular male celebrities and designers created the ultimate space for men. The Decorex SA 2016 Team paired up a chosen celebrity with Blaque Pearl Lifestyle to create the ultimate Top Man living space. Together with our celebrity, Brendan Potter, we were tasked to create a living space that not only reflected the latest industry trends, but most importantly the personality of our celeb.
We ensured that the mancave was a living space which had particular elements of Brendan’s personality to create the mood and feel of the space. Being an FMW motor-sport bike racer, we brought in a hue of green on the walls to represent a ‘green field’ while the grey border and subdued oil splatters gave a feel for the bike track. We incorporated an overall industrial feel to the space; key pieces include the iron cabinet and table. The clock was a personal piece which Brendan hand made himself, while we also used a few of his personal items to decorate and create a mood in the living space; the helmet and skull.
