From Daniel Craig's 007, to Mad Men's Don Draper and Christian Grey of the Fifty Shades trilogy – sophisticated, dapper gentlemen have now firmly pushed to one side the scruffy, gum-chewing bad boys of yesteryear.

And while their suits, their swagger, and their many successes naturally appeal no end, their incredible abodes are something of a mega-attraction too. 

Indeed, here at SHEmazing! we say there are few things sexier than a man who takes pride in his home – whether that's a box-room in his parents' place or a sprawling, detached property.

Thankfully, and choosing to ignore any lingering traffic cones or quirky beers mats from his college years, there are simple, affordable ways to revamp a living space too. 

Yes, armed with the right inspiration (Fifty Shades Darker hits Irish cinemas on February 10, for example) even the dullest of spaces can be transformed into something manly and striking.

Goodbye tatty boys-club gaff; hello cosmopolitan man-cave dwelling!

Here are six simple ways to give refined home-decor a distinctly masculine twist…

1) Accessories are everything 

Forming the perfect living space isn't exclusive to those with a millionaire bank balance. After all, when it comes to creating sleek, masculine interiors, the likes of leather photo frames, matching plates and cutlery, and luxurious faux-fur throws go a LONG way. 

2) Get rid of any junk

Clutter is out! Small living environments in particular can't support a load of 'stuff'. Go through every possession and aim to chuck as much of it as possible. Old DVDs and CDs? Out! Keep your wardrobe simple and concise too; discard anything that's tatty, worn, or dated.

3) Keep the colour-scheme simple

Embrace earthy hues like browns, greys, or deep greens. Or alternatively opt for two or three complementing colours and work with those – not only on the walls and ceilings, but also via accessories, furniture, and paintings. 

4) Storage boxes are a BIG help

Aim to keep day-to-day clutter out of sight. Bathrooms shouldn't be littered with products; bedrooms shouldn't be strewn with clothing, and sitting-rooms should be free of the likes of games consoles and gadgets. Invest in some good-quality storage boxes to help you clear away as much as possible.

5) Create a central feature

Christian Grey may have THAT Fazioli piano in his breathtaking penthouse – but even a bicycle or smaller musical instrument mounted on a wall can create a great central feature and talking point. If that feels too ambitious, use a piece of art or a quirky charity-shop find instead. 

6) Stick to a cleaning schedule

After discarding, decorating, and rearranging – don't let all your hard work go to waste by then not implementing a strict cleaning schedule. Leave the actual scrubbing and washing for the weekends, but daily, aim to complete a 20-minute tidy and re-ordering.



Though the millions of women who found themselves drooling over his perfect face in Fifty Shades might disagree, Jamie Dornan has previously spoken of his love of having a beard.

Indeed, he's said he believes it makes him more distinguished and less cutsie-looking.

But the actor struck a balance while out and about in London yesterday, sporting neither a full beard nor a clean-shaven look.

Instead, Jamie boasted a handlebar moustache – which unsurprisingly he managed to pull off to perfection. 

Although dressed down in a blue t-shirt and navy jeans, also on show were his toned biceps.

The 33-year-old Co. Down-native was accompanied by his English wife, Amelia Warner, also 33, and their 18-month-old daughter, Dulcie.

The facial hair is not by choice, however: he has grown the moustache for a role in the forthcoming Jadotville

Released next year, the feature film documents the story of Co. Kerry Commandant Pat Quinlan, who led a stand-off with French and Belgian troops in the Congo in the early 1960s. 

Playing the suited and booted Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of EL James's Fifty Shades Of Grey, Mr Dornan sent hearts aflutter when the film hit cinemas in February.

It eventually went on to gross half a billion euro at the box office.

Thankfully, Jamie has already signed up for the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, which is due for release on February 10, 2017.

It is believed that he has been offered a €1.35m bonus to do a full frontal nude scene in the movie – an offer which he is said to be considering carefully. 



Thirsty Thursday became a trend not so long ago, and now it’s been surpassed by Grey Thursday.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, 50 Shades Of Grey has come back, again. A retelling of the trilogy from Christian Grey’s perspective is exactly what we wanted heading into the weekend.

The publishing phenomenon has sold 125million copies worldwide already, and has also become a film series. Anastasia and Christian’s relationship is now being told “in Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections and dreams”.

Yes E.L James has somehow managed to transform a Twilight fanfiction inspired smut trilogy into a lucrative industry.

Today not only marks the release of the hotly-anticipated new novel, but the date was also chosen by the author herself as it marks Christian’s birthday. Nice.

The fictional seducer and bondage aficionado has, naturally, caused quite the stir online today. Once people managed to get through the rather wordy preamble, they’ve got an awful lot Grey waiting for them.

Twitter users couldn’t help themselves:

Just in case you weren’t one of the die-hard fans who had the novel sent to their E-readers at midnight (how could you not?), we’ve gathered up some Christian’s best parts, no pun intended, honestly.

First of all, it’s important to note that while poor Anastasia’s point of view was given the dull numerical chapter titles, Mr Grey gets a bit more specific with his dates. So, to surmise Christian is not only a billionaire sex god, he’s also really good at keeping a diary, of course.


"'Mr Grey.' His handshake is limp, like his hair. Asshole. 'Wait up – not the Christian Grey? Of Grey Enterprises Holdings?' Yeah, that's me, you prick.


 “Her words travel directly to my d***, passing ‘Go’ on the way. F***.”


"Absentmindedly, she wipes a crumb from the corner of her lips and into her mouth and sucks on her finger. My c*** twitches in response. What am I, fourteen?"


 “This calls for – what did she call them? SHOUTY CAPITALS.”


"She has a fresh, wholesome fragrance that reminds me of my grandfather’s apple orchard."


"I remember her telling me to keep still and tugging my pubic hair while she was sitting astride me, naked. The thought is arousing."


"Keeping my eyes on hers, I pop an olive into my mouth and lick my index finger. Her eyes grow wider and darker."


"Her hair is beautiful. Lush. Long. Thick. Idly, I wonder what it would be like to braid."


"I cannot believe she's said that out loud! Ironically, the question even my own family will not ask. How dare she!

"I have a sudden urge to drag her out of her seat, bend her over my knee, spank her, and then f*** her over my desk with her hands tied behind her back. That would answer her ridiculous question."


"'This is my favorite tea,' she says, and I revise my mental note that it's Twinings English Breakfast tea she likes. I watch her dunk the teabag in the teapot. It's an elaborate and messy spectacle.

"She fishes it out almost immediately and places the used teabag on her saucer.

"My mouth is twitching with my amusement. As she tells me she likes her tea weak and black, for a moment I think she's describing what she likes in a man. Get a grip, Grey. She's talking about tea."



A new clips has been released for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie and if steamy is what you’re looking for…then you won’t find it here!

The clips sees Ana (Dakota Johnson) working in a hardware shop when Christian (Jamie Dornan) comes in to buy, erm…hardware bits. You know; rope, cable ties, masking tape, that kind of thing.

It has been reported in the media in recent days that the movie contains over twenty minutes of sex scenes, the most in any movie in over ten years.

If this clip is anything to go by, we’re not going to be holding our breaths for 14th February.  



Those of you who have read Fifty Shades of Grey will be all too familiar with the er, tampon scene…

For those of you who haven’t, in the scene Anastasia has her period and before they have sex, Christian pulls her tampon out. Sorry…

Now that has been uncomfortably explained, it has been revealed that the scene won’t be making the movie, which we have to say isn’t all that surprising given that it isn’t the sexiest of scenes to imagine.

Talking to Variety, the director Sam Taylor-Johnson revealed that the infamous scene wouldn’t cut it: “It didn’t make the movie. It was never even discussed.”

Producer of the movie, Michael DeLuca explained that the decision, saying: “The book needed to put you in Ana’s shoes to be a successful experience. A lot of it was very literal. The movie didn’t need to do that. It’s a completely different medium.”

Are you relieved or disappointed that the scene won’t be hitting the cinemas?



No matter what you might be watching on TV, it always seems that a parent chooses to walk into the sitting room JUST as the sex scene starts. It could be the blandest, most boring film ever to be released, but of course things start to get steamy at the exact moment your dad strolls in.

These grandparents got much more than a few seconds of naughtiness though – they all sat through the full "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer and had to discuss the film in depth afterwards.

They're a bit clueless at first – one woman thinks that "this must be an attorney-based film" while another can't wrap his head around Christian Grey's way of thinking. "'I don't do romance?' What kind of guy are you?"

They soon settle in though and even stay back to recite some choice lines of script from the film!

Our favourite bad review? "I'm not into movies that are all about the S word." Way harsh!



The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is due to be released today. However it’s not online just yet, so to whet your appetite, here is the radio ad where you can hear Christian Grey speak for the first time.

What do you think, is this how Mr. Grey should sound? All this build-up has us VERY excited for the release of the trailer – hurry up please!




Producers of the long awaited Fifty Shades of Grey film have us all in a fluster this morning after releasing the first official photo of the Northern Irish actor Jamie Doran as Christian Grey.

We dare say, the former Calvin Klein underwear model is looking VERY well indeed.

If only we didn’t have to wait till Valentine’s Day to see the film!



The film version of E.L. James’s best selling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey is well on the way, as the author decided to treat fans with a photo of one of the most coveted of props: the key to Christian Grey’s ‘Red Room of Pain’.

She didn’t give too much away, captioning the image with a simple “#nuffsaid”.

The film is at the editing stage and when Director Sam Taylor Johnson was asked if it turned out how she wanted, she replied: “Absolutely. Yeah. I’m excited.”

So are we!
