Four months ago we decided to finish our basement and make it a party and entertainment space.
The goal was to give it a bold, unique and untraditional look.
Hope you like our new party central ..........

This basement project was created from the cement on up. The transitional space was designed with varying zones in mind - home theater, bar, open play space (future pool table and games area. The subtle coastal-cottage style helps to lighten up the long winters and provide a place to escape. The beach palette inspiration came from a small east coast fishing port - deep blue seas, weathered gray and white structures with sandy earth and natural tones sprinkled in. The playful pop of yellow gives the space some life - perfect for a family with young children. Given the low ceilings and lack of natural light, it was essential to make the space feel as bright and airy as possible - mirrors and strategic lighting help to achieve this feel. Built-ins help to give the space a custom high-end feel while providing much needed storage and functionality.

This is Phase II of our basement project. We built the wine cellar and constructed the wine racks from a kit. We designed the cellar around a mahogany wine buffet we found at Costco for $500. We built the exterior wall out of Castle Rock to resemble the cellar of an old building.
Several people have commented on the lighting which is very important to me. Photographs 10 & 11 are the only two I needed to use a flash. All overhead and sconce lighting use soft on/off dimmers with memory.

I was going for a efficient use of space in this basement. We started from scratch. I picked everything out including the amazing laminate floor in the first half. We divided it up into two separate spaces. The first half includes a small kitchenette/bar with an easy to clean floor for parties. You enter through the arch and enter the movie theater room and exercise area. We love the way it turned out. I'm still working on decorating it. I want it to have an exotic feel. I still need stools and can't decide on what style. Let me know what you think!
