Right now we are in the messy trenches of transforming our unfinished basement into extra living space and guest quarters. While the dust is flying and we can’t see over the stacks of drywall, Danielle, Creative Director at The Land of Nod, and I were brainstorming how this space could look like down the road. I had nautical intentions for the space and pinned beautiful beach side inspired interiors on Pinterest, with lots of nautical blue.
Danielle helped me add a little ‘oomph’ to my ideas by adding bits of modern and unexpected punches of color. In addition to shades of blue, black and white we also added some pink and mustard yellow/gold. We ended up with a Modern Nautical Glam Basement that I’m sure will transform the space into something comfortable, fun and relaxing.
The room is about 600 square feet and I already own most of the large furniture pieces, such as white storage closets, a large white sofa, white bed, white dresser and black and white striped rug. Our goal is to use all of the existing neutral elements and to tie the room together with a bunch of fun Land of Nod accessories – many of them just launched last week!
This is what we’re thinking:
Wood Rock Lamp with Black Shade /Anchor Hook / Ahmaze Quilt / Swiss Dot Sheets / Wallpaper / Small Wood Cubby Shelf / Abstract / Ice Cream Art / Half Tone Basket / Sunburst Mirror / Geo Throw Pillow / Hello Pillow / Abstract Pillow / Patina Rug
So, along with a couple of planned DIYs and the amazing help from The Land of Nod, I think our Modern Nautical Glam Basement transformation will be a success. Stay tuned for a big reveal once we complete the whole project!
