An Interview with House of Jade Interiors

I hope you’ve enjoyed the bright basement Room of the Week and found inspiration if you have your own basement family room.  I know I feel re-motivated to finish projects I started long ago in my own basement.

Just as I have the past few weeks I sent the designers behind House of Jade Interiors, some questions about the room and they were kind enough to share their answers along with some great tips and tricks.  I hope you enjoy the interview!interviewwithhouseofjadeinteriors copyThanks for stopping by and reading!  500-daisy-upholstery-nails-brass-furniture-studs-tacks-[2]-436-p copy

Coffee Tables With Storage

One of my favorite things about Room of the Week is the absence of clutter…despite it being the family room.  It’s probably partly due to the coffee table made from four lidded ottomans.

They add tons of color, can be easily moved, and provide lots of simple storage for things like blankets, remotes and toys that are all enjoyed in family rooms, but aren’t necessarily all that lovely to display.

If your family room feels cluttered or unkempt try adding storage with your coffee table.  Here are 13 fun and functional finds to fit your family room style.

I’ve walked by those orange lidded ottomans from Target and almost put them in my cart more times than I can count! I should just buy them already, because our family room basement definitely needs some more storage, and these would also be a fun bright spot in the room.

Exciting Complimentary Color Combos

One of my favorite things about the Room of the Week is the way the designers combined colors in the throw pillows to create color palette that is both pleasing and exciting.

Those hot oranges combined with that light cool blue is a color palette that is really fun for this basement family room.  You can use this hot + cool complimentary color formula to create your own exciting complimentary color palette.

Here are 6 complimentary colors ideas that will work together to create beautiful color palettes!Exciting Complimentary Color Combos |

Anyone else have a dark basement in their house?  Even though I’ve attempted to brighten up my dark basement it still isn’t as bright and inviting as I would like.  But, the lovely Room of the Week designed by the lovely designers behind House of Jade Interiors, is both bright and inviting and offers so many tips we can all implement into our own dark basements.  Let’s take a closer look!
