From bold stripes to pinstripes, a striped bedding pattern is always a good bedding style for guys. The color choices are numerous and can be anywhere from two colors to several colors.

Add solid colored throw pillows and/or geometric ones to match the colors.


Solid Colors

A solid color bedding option is easy and doesn't require much planning or thought. You can change it up a little with a different color for the sheets. You may decide on a pattern for the sheets, such as a striped or plaid design.

Geometric Patterns

A geometric pattern will appeal to most guys interested in engineering, mechanics or science. The patterns in bedding can be found in just about any desired color or color combination.
