I feel stupid saying this same intro AGAIN as I did in my last two posts BUT ohwell. My boyfriend and I are moving into the basement, and finally have some room to breath(going from 9x10 to 20x36). Aside from some issues with the ceiling and leaks the next problem was how the heck we're going to finish and furnish and organize everything. I found this space planner online and gave it a shot, came up with this. Icovia® Space Planner Here is a screen shot http://img21.imageshack.us/f/unledft.png/ So everything is in order, we have a rough idea of where we want things. Not really sure weather or not to paint or wear to paint. The lighting the basement is terrible though so we need something to liven things up a bit. I was thinking a nice bright red or pale yellow for the wall thats just drywall. But am really blanking on what to do with the rest of the walls, atm they have cedar planks on them. Also curious if it might be a good idea to instead of using faux plants to bring in green, looking in to what plants would live down there. Any suggestions or ideas would be much appreciated, the suggestion of beiges and tans on the walls will bring only doom!
