Hey ya’ll! Today I’m sharing a never-before-seen room in our home…the basement family room. Because it’s, well the basement, it wasn’t on the top of my to-do list when it came to our home. Now that the bathroom is done, office is done, and living room is almost done, it was time to give the family room a little attention so I’m finally sharing our progress with you.
Here was the inspiration behind our living room. I was still going for the modern beachy vibe like we have in the rest of our home, but wanted the basement slightly more rustic and masculine, so Jordon has his man cave to watch football. His love for fishing fit the cottage theme perfectly so we went with it, and of course had to add some firefighter memorabilia as well.
We had a large wood coffee table in the room, but it was too big for the space and didn’t quite fit the vibe I was going for. It was a little too contemporary. Because this is not our regular living room we use daily, we don’t need a large functioning coffee table. I was looking for something smaller but still comfortable to kick up our feet and relax.
I’ve always wanted a Moroccan pouf because they are stylish and functional. You see them everywhere, but it’s because they truly are such a good addition to literally any room! It dawned on me that 2 poufs would work perfectly as the “coffee table” in our family room.
I got my poufs from ATG Stores and I’m obsessed. They are firm and don’t just sag when you put your feet on them, and the size is substantial compared to some I’ve seen. The leather is also incredibly durable and you can tell they are very well made. I highly recommend these poufs if you’re looking to get one for yourself.
The cowhide rug we’ve had for a while in our kitchen, but I like it better in the basement I think. The 2 sconces above the couch were $9 IKEA finds. Oh, and please ignore the frames with the store images still in them…I’m so good at hanging frames but filling them with prints is another story!
I’m really loving how the family room is coming along. We’d like to build a bar for the empty side wall eventually, but other than that, I think we’re about done minus the empty frames, shelf styling and a couple new pillows :)
Do you have a man cave in your home? How do you make it stylish?
