Cool is the word I use to describe the basement at the Parade Home we recently designed. It’s modern yet inviting, and has a mix of materials and textures that keeps it interesting and warm. I’m excited to show you the Parade Home Basement Family room today and I’m sure you’ll have a million good adjectives to describe it.
I had a clear vision for this basement. I wanted to make it feel lived in even though it was a home no one actually lived in, as it is with the Parade. To accomplish that, we needed to add in some old. Some retro. Some nostalgia.
We added in some vintage records and a record player to counter balance the tv. Two large consoles along the wall added some styling opportunities and more balance to the space.
I really pushed the mixed materials down here. Leather chairs, a tweed sofa, concrete coffee table, a lot of different woods. All of that together is what gives the room that lived in feel.
Behind the family room there’s a kitchenette, adding to the cool tones.
I love the gray wood tones mixed with the white and leather on the barstools.
Just opposite the kitchenette is a game table and bench. We envisioned some teens down here after school, lounging and staying out of trouble:)
You’re probably curious about that play space in the background– reveal of that coming soon!
Be sure to check out the video reveal of this basement! It shows you more of the spaces than I’ve revealed here and they are goooood!
