Decorate Your Pad Ala-Barney Stinson With These Must-Haves

Your home can be legen...(wait for it) dary!


If you'll be given a chance to choose just one TV home to serve as peg for your dream haven, which one would your pick? I know I'll be torn between Carrie Bradshaw's posh yet laid-back NYC apartment and Harvey Specter's clean and streamlined home! Given the different shows that we watch everyday, we get so many inspirations when it comes to decorating and styling. If you want your space to be super cool, then we found just the right peg for you!

Barney Stinson's pad—as featured on How I Met Your Mother—can be considered as any bachelor's dream. It has a monochrome palette, sleek furniture, and steel accents that work together to create a space that fits Barney's carefree personality. If you've always wanted the similar feel for your own apartment, here are six essentials that you can invest in:

Barney is known as a ladies' man and we're guessing that he loves having friends over for parties! If you also enjoy having friends over for quick get-togethers, it's important that you have extra seats that can accommodate everyone. This stool is perfect for the bar and can be easily moved too should the need arises.

It's so easy to work with a black leather sofa at home—and for a number of reasons! First, you can easily spruce it up with different pillows and maybe even a throw. Second, you have the option to leave it as is as the color itself serves as an accent.

How can you personalize your pad? Add accents that showcase the things you love. If you love movies, you can put framed posters on display. For those who can't get enough of Star Wars, a few decals will look great on plain walls.
