The basement will house the Family Room with a separate homework/craft/play zone for the kids. It also includes the Studio/Craft room, Laundry Room and Mama Bathroom. Off the back of the basement is the Patio.
The overall feel of the space I would like to create is FUN. Yep, that's the word for the basement Family Room. Here's a little idea of what I had in mind....
You really can't get much more fun than the Good Luck Charlie house. If you're not familiar with this adorable set check out the rundown at Hooked on Houses.
I also came across this mood board via Pinterest by Ashley at 7th House on the Left.
She nailed it! Color... Lots of color. Interactive art wall, graphic patterns, whimsy, earthy touches. And more color.
Pretty much all of our living room furniture will go down to the basement Family Room. While I have a dark gray sofa and black TV stand, I'm hoping some DIY and TLC will be able to transform my current pieces into something more vibrant and playful.
This will also be the space where we entertain the most. So neutral backdrops will still be a must. (After all, my girly girl will be having pretty pink parties down there.)
Are there any TV/Movie sets you'd love to recreate?
