Welcome to our basement.
This is where my kids hang out.
They watch movies.
They do homework.
They have sleepovers.
When I was picking out colors, I knew they had to be bright.
Otherwise, the basement would feel…well, like a basement.
I picked fun pieces for the walls, many of them made by my girls.
Mostly, I used what I had, and it worked well.
The pocket door straight ahead goes into my office.
We used pocket doors on the downstairs bath and office.
What a space-saver!
A few years ago, I added the build-ins.
This made a huge difference.
The space felt more permanent somehow,
like an important part of our house.
My decorating philosophy is just to have fun.
I want to come home from work, move through my space
and feel happy.
I wanted this room to be happy, too.
Speaking of happy, I hope you all have a great weekend!
