ok im nuts but to help out my family im considering doing some one room living, (aka a tiny basemnt room). Its 16 by 16. In this space I must fit a cocuh (futon of course), A tv, two nightstands (or endtables), A chair, a bookcase (or some vertical storage), a microwave and a desk of some sort. I dont have a desk yet so I guess I need to figure that out. Its a tiny room and im moving from a two bedroom aparment. Im willing to get rid of alot but I really need storage. I will have a closet for clothes and a hallway leading to the bathroom that will be shared with the person in the other room (AKA my MA! ick). I can paint but I dont know what colors I want. So what would you do if this was your space? Im into earthy tones, turqouise, being confortable. I havent given any thought to a theme but my current bedroom has lots of browns and bamboo (i like the rustic look of it). The living room is alot of blacks. I love the look of brown, black and turquoise. I know that the big brown squared quilt will make a large decision on colors. I wont get rid of it since it was orginally $400 but I got it for $50.
I am also fond of musicals and a nice uncluttered lifestyle. As for storage, I need somthing for DVDS, videos, blankets, scrapbooking, magizines, Crafts and some monkeys (ok mabey alot of monkeys, there my one weakness). I thought of somthing like this":
with my current tv stand inbetween to hold my tv and dvds (I dont wanna get rid of my tv stand since I paid $75 for it 6 months ago). Any suggestions? Sorry Im long-winded!
