My hubby has been working on walling in a bedroom in our basement, and once he does that, the other side will become our home office (right now, our office is in the dining room upstairs). I am deep in the throes of a pinterest orgy, trying to come up with ideas for both bedroom and office. My problem is that I cannot settle on one style. I LOVE an industrial chic vibe - i.e. something very rustic/retro/vintage combined with very modern, but the problem is my husband. He cannot stand antiques. Crazy, I know. Which means, a) I have to convince him, or (b) just do it and hope he likes it. But then I also love a boho updated 1970s comfy womfy vibe too. Can all of this be combined into one crazy design stew to create a living space that we can...well...LIVE in?
Come along and enjoy the mishmash that I've been pinning.
YES to giant architectural letters. I even love the L.A. above, in honor of one of my favorite places.
Both of the above are kind of creepy, but I love the old school science classroom vibe. I also dig on an old classroom pull-down map, which would be an EXCELLENT idea for a window covering, a la THIS:
You dig? But, but, BUUUUUTTTT....I also see black and white striped curtains too. We have a LOT of windows to cover in our basement:
...and I WILL have this too, either in needlepoint or on a pillow. OH YES I WILL:
and this pillow:
Perhaps an excellent mid-century chair:
and a chalkboard wall:
and a cool accent wall like this:
and do not, under any circumstances, forget the sliding door into the office:
More cool spaces.
Love the 1970s Rec-Room style of this...
Retro hanging lights and pop of yellow? Yes please.
MORE '70s style fabulousness. I mean. LOOK at that light fixture, and don't even get me started on the rugs and pillows.
See? I TODE you I'm completely schizo about what I want. I think that's quite enough for now. Have a good Tuesday, yo.
