Basement Refresh : East GR clients

Oh, friends.  There is so much going on behind the scenes.  Such a treat for me.  But today I'm keeping it short and sweet with a little basement refresh for a repeat client.  

This is technically a finished basement, but not finished in the way that she'd like.  For example, the floor is concrete.  But it's a great casual seating and entertaining area, and she wants to spruce it up with a rug, drapes, and pillows.  

She has two navy sofas, so I started with that.

 I selected this rug because it's multicolored, textured, and has an interesting feel to it.  I think it's welcoming for what can be a cold basement.  The colors also warm it up!

Then the pillows...
I pulled the colors from the rug, but was sure to mix patterns and textures against her leather blue sofas.  The room has a nice big window, but overall, the room has a heavy feel to it.  I chose these lighter and brighter colors to soften and brighten the space; a bit less serious than the upstairs rooms would be.

We've got tweed...

Cotton knit...




What do you think?  
Is this a basement scheme you could enjoy?

  1. That rug was the perfect jumping off point. I like the bit of color for a basement space, and the mix of fabrics on the pillows!! Great design!

  2. Gorgeous! Two navy sofas?! I would just like one! Love all the texture.

  3. Love it! This basement is going to be such a happy place with all the colors you're putting together. I hope we get to see "after" pics.
    Now...I want to know what's happening behind the scenes. Is your home being photographed for magazine? If not, it should be.

  4. Great job Abby- what a fun and funky rug! xo Nancy
