Changes to Kristin's home

My last post was on Kristin's home and some altering and adding she was doing to her home.  She is still trying to recoup after hurricane Sandy like all of us here in Rockaway.  Her basement was flooded with a few feet of water, she is blessed it could have been much worse, because her house is the third house from the beach.  Kristin and her hubby have been diligently trying to get their home to some normalcy and they started some new projects along the way.  One of the projects was to finish the basement and use it as a place to entertain and hangout.  Eventhough, the basement was somewhat finished, Kristin didn't feel it was ready to be entertained in.  I don't have pictures before she started, I will show you as the basement progress.  You'll definitely want to see the finish, Kristin is an amazing interior decorator!

Before I show you the basement, here are a few changes she had made in her livingroom.  She is constantly moving furniture around and creating vignettes in every corner.  

Isn't it is just beautiful?  Let's head downstairs to see the progress in the basement.

Do you see that incredible pallet wall back there, that was one of Kristin and her hubby's project they just completed.  I'll post the instruction for this awesome wall at a later date.  For now, let's look around!  Keep in mind, she has not completed this space, so there is a lot more to come.

She creates seating areas throughout the space.

I love this sectional from West Elm, it is comfortable and beautiful!

I love that plum wall!

Such a beautiful space this basement is turning out to be… Don't you agree?

Have a great day!

  5. It looks like your friend Kristin has made the basement living area just as beautifully done as her upstairs. That sectional does look really comfortable. Such a nice big area, too. I'm sure it comes in handy for parties!
