Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis space needed a little sprucing up so the family can relax and entertain others comfortably.
Neil is one busy guy with two demanding "jobs." He has a successful career in the music industry, where he plays guitar and piano, writes and produces, and is called the "man-of-a-thousand-voices" for his ability to sing every musical style. He is also a devoted dad who is raising his two sons, Josh and Tom. They all love to camp, fish and basically do anything in the great outdoors together. However, when indoors at home, they just didn't have a space in which they could all assemble to play music, watch TV or just chill out.

Neil had an unused basement that was dark, dingy and used only for storage. He really wanted to turn this space into a movie/music/video-game haven for his two boys. So I dug deep to channel my "inner guy" and got set to give Neil, Josh and Tom the ultimate den for men.

The house was relatively new and the room was in good shape, so I didn't have to do any structural work. This space just needed a major spruce-up. I decided to take the family's love of nature and use this as my inspiration for all of the colors, fabrics and finishes.
