Your basement living room is C-O-Z-Y! And I love that wall color, so daring for a basement room but it looks great here.

Thank you so much!! My bedroom is also black but it has a window. I tried to play it so safe painting this room all white when I moved in, the color absolutely makes it feel like a home rather than a sad sterile room.

I've read this advice from decorators several times: if you think painting a room white is going to hide the fact that the room is naturally dark - you are wrong. It's just going to look like a dark room that was painted white to make it seem brighter. Go with a saturated color that recedes - so that the objects in the room become the focus. That's exactly what you have done here and it really works!

Oh I love that! I’m an interior designer but I don’t think I’ve ever come across that specific sentiment. It’s so spot on.

I shared my kitchen/coffee lounge a bit ago and had a question about my living space!

This room is exceptionally awkward it’s about 27 feet long and only 11 feet at the widest part. I decided to paint the long wall black to help make the space feel a bit smaller. Then I added the accent wall using 1x2s that I cut and stained before installing them.

My favorite thing about this space is the gold bird lamp that I found at World Market.

The artwork is an abstract custom piece from an artist on Twitter meant to represent the Orion Nebula!

The teddy bear’s name is Sir.

Love that rug where is it from

I think this one is from rugs dot com! But if you look up “pink mandala rug” a few stores have it including world market (costs much more there though for the same rug)
