I sure did find lots of good ideas and inspiration from this house tour.
Here are ALL the Posts in this series -
House and Town details plus the Kitchen
The Top Floor - entertainment room and craft room
The Master Suite
The Main Floor - mostly the living room & dining room
Laundry and Children's Bedrooms
Family Room and More
Today I am posting about the basement, which is made up of the Family Room, garage, and lower terrace. Don't be put off. Let's just say this isn't a typical basement. Take a look.
On the way down to the basement, I noticed the stairs had a painted faux runner. Even though the design appears pretty simple, I know a lot of work went into it. I wasn't bowled over by it, but then, I have learned a lot about painted floors - all the floors in my house are painted! Most everyone else loved it and assumed I would, too, since I love painted floors.

I think something similar to this stair treatment from Donna at Funky Junk Interiors would have looked much better.
|Clever Storage Under the Stairs|
|Equestrian look Coat Hooks|
|Pet station - dog bed, treats, toys|
|Brick Floor in the Family Room - loved it. Love the coffee table, too.|
|Fabulous Sliding Doors - We have been looking for hardware like this!|
|Very Cool - Bulletin Board Calendar|
|A few more details|
So that's it. I hope to go back 2 or 3 months after they've decorated for Christmas.
