design boards :: a versatile family basement
Thursday, December 8, 2011 by {darlene}

Things are getting busy around here! How about with you? I love this time of year, and I love its busyness. But I especially love that my busyness comes from carving out a lot of time for family traditions. I hope you, too, have a lot of time to spend with your loved ones this Christmas and Holiday Season, making wonderful memories.

I am excited to share my latest design board with you. It is a versatile basement space, and it is all about having a place where the family can be together. This basement has it all, with spots for TV watching, card playing, snacking, and playing billiards.

I had a lot of fun pulling all of the elements of the room together. One of the goals in this space was to keep it a place where the family’s Dad would feel like he had a space of his own, while avoiding making it a man-cave.

Here is what I came up with:

Here are my favorite elements in this room:

  1. Mixed metals!
  2. The punch color of navy.
  3. Bold, fun patterns
  4. The aviator art
  5. Brass accents

With my Vision Design Board Consultation, I include a complete listing of all of the resources seen on the board, as well as providing ideas for D.I.Y.’s and money-saving alternatives. I can’t wait to see how this room takes shape as my client pulls it all together !

I would love to hear your thoughts on this design board! What are your favorite elements from this space?
