|the view from my porch|
Whatever the reason, with a burst of energy, I decided this was a good time to freshen up our den. Out with the old, and in with the new color ---rich, chocolate brown with white beadboard.
The den is my husband's room -- a place for him to put all his guy stuff. Years ago he bought a massive oak roll top desk, oak bookcases as well as an oak display case & filing cabinets for his room. Did I mention he likes oak??
But the room never was a cozy retreat. And it was my fault.
I ignored the room, because I didn't know how (or want) to work with all that oak. But now there's a plan:
My attitude changed, when I treated my husband like a client and listened to him. (lesson learned!) Who knew he had a design style? Think CRAFTSMAN - ART DECO - WILLIAM MORRIS -STICKLEY. Its warm, cozy and masuline!
I'll keep you posted as the room comes together and becomes his very stylish "man cave."
