Our basement...in wide lens...
I was testing what the room would feel like if we hung posters on the wall in the seating area...
... when I looked through the lens, and all I saw was chaos!... busy, busy, BUSY!
Here is what I think needs improvement:
- Buy new media console
- Buy new seating in couch area (where the small black side tables are now)
- Pillows for couch
- Throw for couch
- I really like Jordana's idea of painting the area under the ledge black (or dark)
I know the toys and the play mats aren't helping my cause...but (clearly) they are used regularly. The jute rug is too scratchy and bumpy for my son. Not to mention he likes to colour co-ordinate things (learned that from his mommy no doubt). Having a play area downstairs is essential because it leaves my main floor calm and clutter free. Except now I need to force the media area and toys to work together...maybe more pleasing (matching) carpets are the answer?
When you are down in the basement, I don't think it feels cluttered. However, I may no longer be able to see the room objectively. (I don't actually spend a lot of time down there, its a boy zone)
Maybe one room in the house always needs to be sacrificed to the men (or to pure function)? Do you have a room that you can't quite get right? Should I give up trying to satisfy the camera?
UPDATE: hmmm? Nope...takes up too much space
