Basement Mood Board

Industrial Basement Mood Board

A Quick Update:
Remember my depressing post about our basement woes?  I am happy to tell you that I have an amazing hunk-of-a-husband who spent all week working hard to fix the electrical issues lurking in the ceiling.

Installing Can Lights

Go Aaron!  We have been on a roll this week.  We got a good portion of dry wall done too.

Build A Nook Under Load Bearing Wall Stairs

The real exciting part for me is starting to pull the design together.  I have been crushing SO HARD on Restoration Hardware for the past year.  I love the classy industrial look.  Since our dining room was a little on the feminine side, I thought we could do our family room a little masculine for Mister.  We are using a lot of metal, reclaimed wood, leather, and other natural elements.  We keep referring it as “a family room Indiana Jones would hang out in.”  We want a lot of old world accessories.  Maps, globes, airplanes, etc.  So now I am excited to introduce to you, (drum roll) my mood board!

Industrial Basement Design Mood Board - RESTORATION HARDWARE INSPIRED ROOM

I used Chip It to help me pick paint colors and coordinate everything.  I LOVE CHIP IT.  I know my mood board looks a little busy, but it makes perfect sense to me of all the things I am working on.  The top right (next to the curtains) is what is happening in the nook.  A leather cushion and hanging light will be perfect.  I have the book case and sofa table inspiration on the bottom right.  The rug under the couch… the couch (that is the closest picture I could find of the couch we already have).   Pillows to make… walls to paint… This is my favorite part.  I AM SO EXCITED!
