i am so excited to add some pizazz to our basement family room space!
all with the help of the amazing darlene from fieldstone hill. i have mentioned darlene before when i joined her list of 'master designers'. (you can click on the logo to the right to read more about that)
here is our basement family room now:
its where we can watch movies together. have large groups playing games and socializing.
its where i walk on the treadmill and my husband runs on the treadmill.
it is very functional but has not really had too much thought put into the decor. these couches are 12 years old (still love them!) and and the tables, lamps, etc. all came with us from the move.
its almost been two years since we've moved so we were ready to call upon darlene for some help!
i was put on her wait list............ and it was worth the wait!
this is what she came up with!! along with a sketch (to scale) of exactly where to put my furniture, and a complete source list, with links, of what accessories to purchase, where to purchase them and where to put them in the room.
i'm chipping away at it. i've ordered some prints to hang on the front of the bookshelves (i've saved pictures of this idea but never thought to do it!), purchased the paint color for the back of the bookshelves (doesn't that look awesome?!) and ordered up the rug.
once i gave darlene all the measurements she needed (room, furniture windows etc.) she was ON IT! i really appreciated the promptness and attention she gave me. thank you so much darlene!
having someone help me come up with a complete look like this has been SO helpful! i really enjoy design and doing this myself, but working with darlene was a huge treat.
