Cresthaven Basement

So far I've shared the Living Room and Dining Room that I designed for the model home. Today I am sharing pictures and sources from the basement. 

Our budget for the basement was $2,200. This needed to include a sofa, rug, barstools, toy storage, chair, media piece and accessories. It was not an easy task. We were able to find some great deals on the sofa, rug and t.v. piece. 

This fabric was the inspiration for the room. 

Sew Hip and Humble made some beautiful pillows for the sofa and we pulled out the tan and blue from the fabric for the rest of the room. 

Bleeker Pillow: Donated by Elegant Touch 
Tan Pillows: Blue Spindle
Blue Pillow: Blue Spindle
Floral Blue Pillows: Sew Hip and Humble  
Sofa: Downeast  We got this for around $600. There was a stain on the armrest which we just threw a throw blanket on top of. Problem solved!

  1. Great basement. Love all the fabric choices on the pillows.

  2. Very resourceful! You did a great job with the budget- hopefully some left for you:) Love the impact the rug makes and you seamstress! Thanks for the tip!

  3. Beautifully done! I especially like how light it feels, even for a basement. The sofa is gorgeous - so wish we had downeast on the east coast. The fine art photography you used is beautiful. I'll definitely be checking out Horace & Mae's etsy!

  4. Do you know who makes the blue floral fabric? I'm in love with it! I'd love to use it to make curtains......

  5. You're amazing to be able to do all that with two thousand dollars! I would have been in a panic but you pulled it off and it's beautiful! Great job Kirsten!

  6. I love the fabric choices, and I love the clear jars for smaller toys. You did so much with your budget, it looks amazing.

  7. Beautiful room - amazing budget! Could you share your source/price for the barstools? Thanks!

  8. Amazing room on such a tight budget! Beautiful work as always!

  9. The pillows and rug really make the space stand out :)



  10. Girl you did such a great job. While $2200 is a nice size budget it's pretty tight for a huge space like a basement. Well done.

  11. I've worked with tight budgets, so I know how hard and how much time it requires to squeeze that much design/style with that little money. GREAT JOB. Really impressed with this whole project!

  12. Beautiful! You really made the budget go far! :) Those jars with chalkboard labels are so cute!

    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give
