For the second phase, we moved down to the Basement. We kept the friendly sloth – what better way to invite folks on down?
Again we lightened up the walls and created different sections in the large open area. We were able to display some wonderful antiques and art pieces in this Landing. The antique dresser is the perfect for the sloped ceiling and a great source for storage.
We repositioned the loveseat along the longest wall and created a built-in effect with the homeowner’s bookcases.
The homeowners are avid readers so we organized their book collection and mixed in found objects like an old radio and typewriter to keep the shelving interesting.
The homeowners told me that they rarely used their Basement prior to the redesign, and now it is one of their favorite spots in the home. That’s definitely what we like to hear! Enjoy!
