It’s no secret that the basement isn’t always everyone’s favorite place to be. For many reasons, it can be the most avoided space in a home and the last to get a little décor TLC.
Usually natural lighting is limited so I like the idea of keeping the palette light and airy. With a removable, machine washable cover, a white sofa can actually be practical, even with little ones running around. A cowhide rug looks great on (most often) basic berber carpet and a coffee table with storage is the perfect solution for games and dvds.
We decided to make our basement a place where we would want to hang out as a family. I found that with a comfortable couch, a lot of texture (pillows & throws) and the right lighting it became, dare I say, inviting!
