Don’t you agree that our homes are always evolving? There are so many reason our homes change and grow. When we moved into our home I had every wall painted All White from Farrow & Ball. I love color on walls, but was overwhelmed at picking paint right then, and knew we could easily add color and curate each room as we went. About three years later in this house and we are almost done adding our personality! We recently painted the basement pink, hung wallpaper and painted doors blue, I will give you a tour.
Painted Pink Walls- PPG Cool Cantaloupe
I have had the itch to paint our basement walls a pink! Finally went for it, after we added Board and Batten to the walls, we painted them all in Cool Cantaloupe from PPG (got it at The Home Depot). I LOVE how it pulled the room together. The room feels curated. PS- it is hard to get a good photo in our basement, with not a lot of natural light.
We moved our smaller frame tv to our triplet guest room, and did a 65″ frame tv over our vintage church pew. The larger size is much better for this big room! Added this gold frame to the tv. Also had these sconces hardwired on either side of the tv.
Painted Blue Doors in Farrow & Ball Light Blue-
Each room has slowly been taking it’s turn getting some extra TLC and my basement wet bar has been on my mind, decided to make some fun changes.
We brought the color from the game room into the wet bar area. We have four doors in this small area, a lot of doors! So we decided to paint just the doors and trim! The color is Light Blue from Farrow and Ball. We have that same blue in the game room (see below) and in Lola’s bedroom!
Now it feels finished to me! In the basement you can see into all the different areas so making everything transition well was on my mind. I’m really happy how it all turned out. What do you think?
Painted Door Transition-
I found this really charming cabinet on Facebook Marketplace for $60. I decided to paint the hutch in Bancha from Farrow & Ball (had it color matched at Sherwin Williams). The same color in our kitchen!
We ended up adding a little more detail to the cabinet by cutting and placing some of the leftover bead board we had as the backing for each shelf. I ended up painting the bead board backing in the same color as our doors in Light Blue from Farrow & Ball.
I still wanted color and to make this space fun. So we filled these jars with candy! I kept each jar to a solid color of candy to make it really pop. The kids have loved this, just something fun when they have friends over or when we are having a family night together in the basement.
Above the cabinet we had a standard vent cover, I wanted to replace it and I found this decorative vent cover with some darling detail. Once we put the new vent on we could really see the hvac stuff behind it. Unsure of what to do I went to Instagram asking for help and WOW you answered. I was told to paint inside the vent black, now we can’t see a thing. It’s perfect!

Game Room with Tree Wallpaper-
And the last change we made was to continue the tree wallpaper all the way around the game room, above the blue board and batten. We had the tree wallpaper on two walls, and now it feels complete all around the room!
