Fifty Shades Darker

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.

Yesterday the world was offered the briefest glimpse at the next on-screen instalment of EL James’ Fifty Shades trilogy.

But because the clip was a total tease at less than twenty seconds long, we decided to hold off until today so we could give you the full Fifty Shades Darker trailer.

Due for release in February 2017, Fifty Shades Darker looks set to be a whole lot more intriguing than its predecessor.

Fifty Shades is finally on its way back to us (yay!), but this time, filmmakers are doing something new when it comes to the production of the movie.

It has been reported to Variety that  Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed will be filmed back-to-back, starting in 2016.

The film also has a brand new director, James Foley, who will take over from Sam Taylor-Johnson who left the franchise in March .

And despite anything you've heard, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan WILL be back. Hurrah!

Here's the teaser trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, although it's nothing more than Christian Grey putting on a mask (but we'll still watch it because, you know… it's Christian Grey):

Fifty Shades of Grey is coming back. Hurrah for all of the fans who just cannot get enough of the series.

However, this time around, the filmmakers are doing something new when it comes to the production of the film. Variety reports Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed will be filmed back-to-back, starting in 2016. 

This essentially means that fans have a definite release date and won't be left in the dark for much longer. 

The film also has a brand new director, James Foley, taking over from Sam Taylor-Johnson who departed the franchise in March. So that really put an end to any hopes that her husband Aaron would be making an appearance. 

Truly, a heart-breaking thought.

Despite any rumours to the contrary, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are back. Oh yes, the two actors will return and pick up where they left off. In case you forgot that involves a lot of shirtless toast eating and lots of questionable flirting while travelling in expensive aircrafts. 

A very short teaser for Fifty Shades Darker has been released. However,  it's really not much more than Jamie putting on a masquerade mask, because why not?

Both of the films have been given release dates too. So you can start planning your entire world around the days they movies come out. Fifty Shades Darker is said to arrive in cinemas 10 February, 2017, followed by Fifty Shades Freed one year later. 

But what about the newest book in the series you cry?

It would seem filmmakers have not yet deemed the world ready for a cinematic insight into Christian Grey’s mind. How unfortunate for everyone.

Oh come on, everyone wanted to see an attempt at this on the big screen, didn’t they?
