Hello! Today I would like to welcome Lindsey from Recreated with her ideas for Mr. Decor Happy's Den.

Hi there! I'm Lindsey from Recreated and I'm so excited to be here today guesting on Decor Happy as part of Vanessa's series as she tries to decide how to give her hubby's den a makeover. The only parameters she gave was that she has already bought the Window Day Bed from West Elm for the space, the walls are painted Para Paints Special Edition which is a light greyish and that the floor would be a light berber carpet. She also mentioned that hubs uses this room (spare bedroom) for reading, watching TV and loves music especially the Beatles. So, with that information I came up with this rendition of the den/Man Cave....

For a man's space I like textural fabrics like the houndstooth and the grey plaid wool. I envision those as a duvet cover or throw for the day bed. Then add in interesting materials like those in the recycled metal coffee table and the leather chairs. The camel chairs have a great modern design and add a pop of colour to the dark and muted colour palate. And finally throw in a media stand with a bookshelf, industrial-style floor lamps, a cool radio and, of course, some Beatles art for the wall. And now this man cave is ready to enjoy!

Thanks Vanessa for having me here today....XO, Lindsey

Thanks Lindsey! I love the Osborne and Little plaid fabric and those chairs although they are a little out of the budget, gorgeous nonetheless! So many great ideas, now what to do...
