Looking to spice things up a bit with a rich new look for your home? Escape the expected, and go for something Masculine and bold! With Father’s Day just the round the corner, we’ve been thinking of all ways to rock a marvelously masculine design!
Comfortable dark colors set the tone for a strong masculine interior design style. Warm browns and cool grays, pair well with softly warn natural leathers and plush velvet to create a timeless feeling of rich elegance.
Simple lines and brutal details define and anchor masculine design. Symmetry adds order and balance to a space, while a combination of rich textural contrast and finishes keep the space interesting.
Don’t be afraid to play with color! This palate of cool blues is reminiscent of early European royalty!
Just because a space is masculine, that doesn’t mean it has to be drab! Black lacquer and mirror help bounce light around this gorgeous dining room.
Forget everything you thought you knew about the term “Man Cave”! Like any good design, today’s definition engulfs the basic principles of comfort and functionality.
The bathroom is a fantastic place to showcase a masculine design! Natural woods and cool slate tiles add sophistication while clean lines and geometric patterns make this space anything but boring!
Create a space that is bold and strong but still rich and welcoming! Stop by CoCo Milano’s today and let our team of designers help create the comfortable, functional, masculine design you desire!

CoCo Milano’s is proud to announce the release of Sid Dickens newest collection just in time for Summer! The Seven Seas Collection!
The Seven Seas Collection Available Now at CoCo Milano’s!
The seas have captured the imagination of artists ever since they were first mapped in Medieval times. Drawn from the water’s depths, Sid Dickens charts a course for adventure with the new limited edition Seven Seas Collection.
Led by forces unpredictable,
We navigate the lessons
to be learnt.
A master of mystery
Inks its journey’s path,
Searching for its fate.
Echoing memories of summers spent aboard his father’s commercial fishing vessel, the sea and its mysteries have flowed naturally into Sid’s art over the years. These nautical pieces are characterized by richly detailed organic textures, patterns, and studies of animals great and small. Inspired by his discovery of blue and white porcelain shards on the beaches of The Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii), Sid included elements of blue and white to represent his sense of wonder about the origins of these small fragments of history.
A balance between beauty
And strength within.
Chameleon of the sea;
We reveal who we are
In the moments we trust.
This nautical themed collection is a tribute to the vast magic and mystery found in our world’s precious oceans and are an invitation to set sail, explore, and treasure the memories you find on shore. Each of these seven new designs represents an aspect of the wonders waiting to be discovered in the world’s vast underwater ecosystem of life for those curious enough to dive in to it.
Ancient sanctuary of life,
Delicate and magical;
The colonies that decorate our seas.
Guiding me through the waters,
Unique as you are free:
My sweet friend,
where are you leading me?
The Seven Seas Collection is available to order immediately! As an added bonus Sid will be SIGNING all pieces from the Seven Seas Collection!
Each piece signed by Sid!
Come by CoCo Milano’s and place your Sid Dickens Seven Seas Collection Order TODAY!!

Think Gems are just for Jewelry? Think Again! Make an impact by introducing semi-precious stone into your space!
Onyx creates the base of this Gorgeous kitchen island! Add additional lighting to create a warm honey glow from within, and watch as this inherently translucent stone easily becomes the focal point of any design!
Agate is another semi-precious stone with translucent properties. Thin slabs of this gorgeous stone are bonded together with resin, which are then used to create fixtures such as these vanity pieces! Look how the interior lighting brings out the beautiful depth of color in this remarkable stone!
Malachite had a huge impact on design in 2015, and it’s presence will not be waning anytime soon! The rich green tones and organic marbling of this stone make it a strong choice for both traditional and contemporary styles alike.
Treat your guests with Style! This custom slab creates a dreamy focal wall in this guest bedroom. The soft rippling of its patterning create a soothing and rhythmic movement.
