Blogging the SF Chronicle: Imbuing a Bachelor Pad With a Touch of Class

We know we have some readers out there who will take issue with this sentence from the Chronicle's piece on remaking a bachelor pad: "Turns out, he didn't really need beer signage, stereo equipment or sleek furniture - just some things he already owned, along with fresh paint, a few additions and a woman's touch."

We will admit that we like some of the choices decorator Lawanna Cathleen Endonino made to Ron Jankov's San Francisco pied-a-terre, especially the use of hemp wallpaper in the bedroom (above).

And while we certainly agree that beer signage does not a great bachelor pad make, we're not so sure that a well-appointed one requires a set of matching crystal either. Or that men are incapable of decorating their own spaces, as the article seems to imply. Any bachelors out there want to take issue?
