Basement Inspiration

My upstairs is currently at a standstill until the new chairs and sofa arrive. So I thought I would start researching a NEW style for my basement. Currently, I am NOT in love with our sectional. And it helps that it's very warn and ripped in places sooo, I am excited to look for something NEW. 
I want a FRESH feel for the space. 
So when I ran into this inspirational picture on Pintrest...

(Does anyone know where I can get darling pillows like these?)

What I LOVE about this picture is that I can still use red in the space (which I LOVE) and the fact I have a MASSIVE wet bar hood in the basement that is here to stay. 

I also LOVE how the white trim pops (which I have a lot of) and I still get to use grey-blue which is so popular these days! YAY!! seriously this picture was sent from heaven!

Not sure about the antlers on the coffee table? (not really me)
But I do LOVE the paint color!

Here is the sofa I am going to save my pennies for....
IKEA of course!
Im either going with a sectional again or 
maybe a Love-seat,sofa combo?? 

With the way my kids beat up the TV furniture it’s not worth it for me to buy an expensive sofa at this point in our lives. 

I am SUPER excited that this design with go with my cherry picture that I LOVE so much! 
The basement is it's NEW home!

I am excited to go forward with this design. 
It might take a while to complete. But I am happy to have some direction :)


  1. Very cute basement inspiration photo! I've seen pillows like the two on the couch at TJ Maxx.

  2. I have bought the square cream pillows with red grainsack-like stripes at TjMaxx here in Boise :)

  3. I LOVE this!! I almost did a little gasp when I saw your inspiration photo. It's perfect! I too very much like blue but I love red in a home. It's so comforting and cozy. This marries them perfectly! Can't wait to see how you reinterpret this design!

  4. So, sooo cute! Now your making me want a basement to remodel!

  5. I just saw pillows almost exactly like those at Target two days ago! They have some online:

    They have lots more, too. So cute!

    1. Ohhhhh, I am on my way to target right NOW!! Thank you!!

  6. Oh my gosh, where did you get that cherries picture? I need one!! I love the inspiration picture, and wanted to tell you that my IKEA had those pillows recently- so you might find them on ebay? I've also seen them at TJMaxx.

    1. Julie, I bought this years ago from Ballard Designs. But I have seen it on and other sites like that, my picture is a 30x30. Hope that helps :)

  7. I recently saw the picture on World Markets web site.

  8. I love this inspiration room. I have the art..I purchased it world market when they were having their art sale!! I've seen those pillow also at Pottery Barn but it looks like you have a good lead with Target! Love the wall color!
