It is always fun to put together a design that both myself and the home owner love. As I constructed this basement plan in particular, I kept thinking, Wow, this is so them! I hope they feel the same way. Lucky for me, they did! This past year, I have worked with my long distance clients on their family room and children’s rooms. We have now moved on to their basement, which will do triple duty: play area for the kids, extra living space and a guest room. To save space and make this usable as a guest room, we chose a modular sofa that is a sleeper/sectional. My clients also wanted to go bolder with fun accent colors and make this room their style, but a more loud, eclectic version of their style. Here is the design plan I came up with…
The Design Plan
I just cannot wait to see this plan come together! I love the color mix from the pillows, throw blankets and accessories. The art print on the top of the board brings all of these colors together. I took inspiration from this fun, eclectic living space designed by the talented sister duo, Kirsten Kelli.
What a fun jumping off point! I love that the base of this inspiration room is neutral, but the accessories are bold and don’t take themselves too seriously. It is a fresh, modern and eclectic space, which is what we were going for in the basement. To remind you of the family room design I did for my clients, I used the same fun colors that they enjoy, but in a more neutral way…
They wanted the upstairs to stay neutral and calm and take a more eclectic, bold approach in the basement. I will make sure to show any and all after pictures here! I will also reveal the kid’s room designs soon, too. Have a great day!
What was your most exciting project? This one sounds a lot of fun to me. Triple duty!
Hi Charlotte! That’s a great question. I love all of them and the one I am always working on at that moment, is my favorite. Project Vintage Gem might be the most exciting, since I was able to see it in person, from start to finish. But I love them all!! 🙂

What a welcoming fun space this will be! I love all the pieces that will go into the room. The colors are so fresh and bright. The tepee is the cutest thing ever! I’m hoping maybe the “guest” might be a grandparent – they will enjoy having the kids down there playing while they are staying there! Love all the texture – the blankets and the coffee table – so nice! Just love the pillows and how happy it makes the space look! Wonderful job – I can’t wait to see the space finished!
Thank you so much, Kathleen! I love that tee pee, too. I am working on another post at the moment, where I highlight the accessories I use in projects, again and again. That tee pee made the list! 🙂
