Here is my inspiration board so far for Ben's man cave project. Ben is all but twitching from all the color infusion going on around our house. I want this room to be for his comfort and enjoyment while also being accessible to guests. I think I am going to go with a monochromatic room in two shades of gray on the walls and with a white media center and black denim recliners.
Man Cave by shoeaddictthriving on Polyvore.com
Not the typically tacky man cave - an eclectic collection of traditional sideboard, flat screen TV, sheepskin rugs, and modern recliners.
I want to incorporate Ben's interests without the room getting too themed or kitschy. Also, since the TV and furniture are going to be big ticket items I want to do the decor and accessories in the room on a tight budget. I am going to do a series of collages for the wall art from University of Maryland yearbooks I have been collecting from flea markets and EBay. I am using the photos of buildings and the sports section of each yearbook. I am also trying to think of something that can incorporate the University of Maryland red in the room without being overwhelming.
I have a couple more project ideas that I need to develop, but I feel like the man cave inspiration and plan is mostly in place. Next I need to plan out when this will all start happening.
