It’s time for more of my home tour! Kari & Kijsa at Designing for Life are inviting others to share photos of their favorite room. A place where life really happens. I love their decorating tips, so what better time to show my media room. Maybe Kari or Kijsa will have some tips for me!
My favorite room of the house is definitely our media room. We have lived in our home for 8 years and never did anything with this room. So for Christmas, we bought ourselves a big plasma TV! Well, of course I couldn’t just have it sit on the floor, I had to get this room in shape.
Here is what it looked like before. I had a VERY limited budget. So instead of getting the $5,000 leather sectional that I really wanted. I settled on this $500 micro fiber floor sample. It’s not the sleekest thing, but man is it comfy!!! There are also two recliners… a big hit with friends.
Style: I wanted something cozy and a little more modern. My usual style is traditional, but I think this is just “media room on a budget” style:-)
Favorite Items: I love the chocolate brown walls and the Ikea bar table. The top is white. I think the white and yellow accents make this room a little more hip than my usual style.
This is truly a lived in room. A favorite place to entertain and the kids love to eat at the bar table. That light hanging over the table cost $7! I love Ikea!! I’m ready for American Idol to start back up so we can have family pizza night again! It’s funny, when we have friends over for a movie, we tell the kids that it’s scary and they have to stay in the playroom. Works most of the time! ha.
I hung my favorite movie couples on the wall. Sandy & Danny from Grease, Maverick and the blonde chick from Top Gun, and Adrian and Rocky (my husband’s favorite!). One of these days I’ll get a rug and add more shelves around the TV for storage. Yeah, my husband will be so thrilled to put more cheap furniture together:-) So there you go… my favorite room. What’s your favorite room?
