Colorful Basement Hangout

Host Joan Steffend and designer Erika Dodge add color and life to a dull, drab basement.

  • These newlyweds want to transform their basement into an area they can sit back, relax and enjoy a cocktail.
  • Now their basement is a tranquil space perfect for relaxing.
  • The room is painted in masculine colors and open shelving is installed.
  • The closet doors are removed and transformed into a uniquely designed coffee table.
  • A touch of retro is added to the curtains and walls of the basement.
  • A new loveseat and some colorful pillows complete this masculine retreat.
  • A portion of log is made into a functional work of art.
