Bachelor’s Pad

“During the 1950s and 1960s, the bachelor pad was considered one of the ultimate possessions for a young career-minded man. In this space, he was able to decorate his apartment with style to fit his tastes. For much of the early 20th century, the female presence in the home dominated while it was a man’s responsibility to become the breadwinner. In the 1950s, men’s attitudes about marriage changed with the representation and openness of sexuality featured on-screen. At this point, the thought of being single was welcomed, and most men felt comfortable to court a number of women freely. The bachelor pad then became a symbol of the 1950s cosmopolitan male, and a typical “pad” included: a bar, an array of artwork, furniture (usually designed by a well-known architect), minimal decór, and a hi-fi system for entertaining. It reflected his awareness of culture and the arts, while at the same time it acted as a lure for potential female visitors- which meant it was usually clean.”

hmmm..something minimalist would be nice.
