She had her work cut out for her. When we moved, this room became the where all the furniture that didn't belong anywhere else in the house ended up. There was really no hope of making it look good, so I didn't even try. The couch is actually a sectional. I hate the way it separates when you sit down on it. I can't stand all the floppy back cushions. Plus, all the stereo components drive me nuts! And what is that thing hanging on the wall in the upper left hand corner? We have no idea.
At one point my brother said that this room reminded him of his frat house in college. Nice.
I already had some idea of how I wanted the space to look and feel, but it was so helpful to have a professional validate, refine, and offer up suggestions for things I hadn't even considered.
The inspiration for my room actually comes from one that Casey herself designed. Perhaps you've seen this gorgeous space?
I'm also really drawn to this room, which is an extreme example that traditional and modern mix.
