Currently, that sad little area looks like this:
I'm in the middle of a number of projects that will bring this room together. It's a bonus space that we never planned on having while living in an apartment, so we've been fortunate to furnish it inexpensively and (I think) creatively. A breakdown of the decor will come next week!
In addition to this "den" area, our place also features a guest bedroom in the subterranean level (that sounds so much nicer than basement, doesn't it?). We admittedly haven't spent much design time on it, so it currently looks like this:
It's a sad state of affairs. Showing these "before" photos are against my better judgment, so please be gentle. It needs a lot of work. There is very little natural light in this room (or in our apartment in general), so eliminating the cave-like feel is my primary aim.
So, my weekend will look like this:
Priority #1: Spruce up the den
Priority #1.5: Spruce up the guest bedroom
What are you up to? Happy Friday, friends!
