Mood Board: Megan’s Basement

Back with another mood board today!

Here’s what Megan had to say about her basement:

“This area will be a media area, bar and kids area.  So it will be a mix of adult and kids areas. We are big OSU buckeye fans and have a lot of buckeyes artwork that will be incorporated in the area somehow.  HOWEVER, I really don’t want it to feel like a stereotypical OSU basement. I am thinking a ‘greige’ color for the paint color on the walls and would love a specific color and brand for this. This area will suffice my husband’s need for a man cave, be a place for the kids to play and keep all of their toys and it will be an area for us to spend time as a family.

I would like the area to feel bright and inviting especially since there won’t be a lot of natural sunlight. Patterns I like: stripe, honeycomb, ikat. I love west elm and ikea and I really like your style and have a few of the same items you have. Colors I like: navy, gray, tan, green (sage, lime), yellow. I enjoy DIY projects but not those that involve building things. :)  I can sew and can handle amateur DIY projects.

We have a dark brown leather sectional couch. I am open to either using this couch in the basement or getting a new one for the basement. I know interior decorators don’t love leather couches but it works well for us when the kids make a mess on them… We also need recommendations for bar stools and pendant lights for over bar counter.”

And here’s what I came up with!

Custom Mood Boards | Cape27Blog.com

Note: As some of you may have noticed, I did not include links to the products within the mood board. Unfortunately, I’ve made the choice, based on several reasons, to no longer provide them here on the blog. As much as I’d love to, providing links a second time is extremely time consuming. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean you won’t have access to sources! I create Pinterest boards specific to each and every mood board that I create. You can simply hop on over and scroll to find any product you may be interested in! Here’s the direct link to Megan’s Basement!

Update: We’re taking a quick leave from mood boards and will NOT be accepting new clients for the time being. I’m currently booked through August, so we plan to reopen shop (or at least give an update) around that time. Thanks for your patience!

Check out more details & past examples.

    Ooooooh! This is my favorite mood board yet! Not only because it’s a nice departure from the typical blue/green/yellow ones, but also because I love me some Buckeyes! I’m going to have to hunt down that drawing of the Horseshoe. Lovely!

      Agreed! We jump on any chance to switch up the typical color palette if the client allows it :)

    Oh I LOVE that mood board! Great job! I wanted to let you know that I saw your feature over at It’s Overflowing a few weeks ago and I pinned your vertical wall planter. I created my own version of it a couple weeks ago and I’m blogging about it and linking to you as my inspiration. The post will go live tomorrow morning! I’m so happy with my project and I wanted to thank you for the inspiration :)
    And I am an Ohioan too! I live in Covington Ohio – a little village about an hour from Cincinnati.
