I’m trying to contain my excitement as I write this, but HOLY SMOKES THE BASEMENT FURNITURE IS HERE! You guys, I literally started crying when everything got delivered because I just can’t believe this project is finally complete. When we first looked at this house over six months ago, we knew right away that finishing the basement would be a must for our family. We knew it would take a ton of work and time, but it would 100% be worth it in the end. Now here we are and it’s DONE–we finally have our modern farmhouse basement. It looks better than I ever imagined and I can’t wait to share it with you!! Ok, just as a reminder, here’s how the basement looked before:
And here’s the finished look now:
When I envisioned what our basement would look like, I always wanted it to be super cozy, comfortable, and fun. I knew our family would be spending a ton of time down here, so I really wanted this to be a space where we could all relax and let down. And looking at this now, I think we made that happen. From the rattan swing, to the sliding barn door, farmhouse style media cabinet and open layout–it’s everything I envisioned and more!
A while back I shared a few of the furniture options we were considering for the basement. I worked with an Arhaus designer (they do design consultations for FREE!) and ultimately I ended up choosing this incredible recliner and sectional. I really wanted well-made, beautiful furniture down here that would last for YEARS. I know I got that with these pieces, plus they are both insanely comfortable. The sectional in particular is like sitting on a cloud!
This is my favorite spot right here–the chaise lounge on this sectional is like a dream! Really, I’ve never felt such a comfortable piece of furniture. I could sit in this spot all day long and be a happy girl!
It’s seriously so crazy to see this basement finished and full of beautiful furniture. It’s been so fun to watch this space come to life and design every detail from scratch! Definitely our biggest project ever, but so worth it. I still need to get the spare bedroom done and my office isn’t quite complete either, but getting this living space finished is a dream come true. Now if you need me I’ll be down here taking a nap! xoxo
