New Year's Resolutions for 2014
I am super-excited to have decided on the two rooms in my home that will be getting makeovers in 2014. I have chosen to do a Chinoiserie Man Cave for my husband and an Elegant Garage for our cars.
For the Chinoiserie Man Cave, I am envisioning the styles of Michael Smith and Ralph Lauren - classic and masculine with Chinoiserie. I plan to include black, gray, abstract art, distressed leather, blue and white Chinese porcelain, and of course, lots of books and a flat screen TV. The photo above captures the style I would like. I should also mention that it needs to be very "guy friendly" with indestructible pieces impervious to red wine, newspaper print, and the like.
The garage is something I have had on my mind for a while. My garage has great bones - a wood ceiling, French doors, four windows, and antique brick. Since I have two large garden sheds and a lawn service, I don't need it to store lawn equipment. I would love it to be an elegant and sophisticated space to house our cars. Finding inspiration photos for garages is next to impossible, but this one below is perfect. I have a black Audi and my husband drives a gray BMW, and I love the idea of using black and gray with some black and white photos of classic cars.
So there you have it - my two interior decorating New Year's Resolutions for 2014.
