(Wo)Man Cave

Remember this room?

Now it looks a little more like this…

Ugly

Not as ugly

I had no intention of redecorating our loft space, but my cousin was moving out of her apartment and had some furniture to get rid of and I couldn’t let the opportunity pass by. A couple of coats of chalkboard paint, a new couch and armchair and some accessories completely turned the once overcrowded room into a less overcrowded room. There are still a few things left to do like draw on the walls and insert a bookshelf along the back of the space, but overall I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

The Husband refuses to have me go on calling the loft a man cave though. Acoording to him, the pink pillow officially converts the space into female territory. So despite my orginally trying to create a nicer place for the Husband to enjoy football games, I inadvertantly turned it into my own haven where I can sip wine and watch Sex and the City in peace. Amen.

Inspired by Cobbold Du Pont

I’ve never been the type to redecorate one space at a time, mostly because I have self-diagnosed Attention Deficit Disorder. I’m currently updating the dining room and the office and hadn’t planned on adding anything else on my To Do list, until I saw this room designed by Rebecca Du Pont De Bie and Caroline Cobbold.

This space is screaming to be recreated and our master bedroom is the perfect canvas. The reason I’m so drawn to this particular room is because it contains a lot of the elements already in mine, making it that much easier to copy. I’ve been bored to death with my white curtains, taupe walls and black furniture, but this photo reminds me that with a few upgrades, my room can go from bland to glam.
