Cat's Den

I am having such a difficult time with the cat house. It is a challenge to my comfort zone to design ultra modern rooms. My first thought was sparse with hard lines, industrial look and industrial colors. That is so not me. So, I researched online. There were some ultra modern looks that I liked that weren't harsh. I am working on getting into that feel.

 In the meantime this room was in my mind. It will not be ultra, but instead be a place to get away from it with softer lines, comfort and nature all around. There will be lots of plants and an aquarium and anything that says soft and peaceful. The accent color will be a soft green and some prints to tie it all together.

I plan to use the painted chairs...the other furniture may not stay or will be refinished. I have a few other pieces I want in there also.

It is the room on the the right end lower level of the house.

This was the first flooring I put down. It is actually leftover wallpaper from one of my bathrooms.

There was a recess in the wall so I decided to make it a built-in aquarium. The color is off in the background which means adjusting it and printing it out again before I add the fish etc. The choice of lights above it is still rolling around in my head.
You can see the bamboo flooring in place here.
This is a place mat I bought a few months ago. I decided to replace the the bamboo one with it after I saw how well it went with the chairs I painted.

    1. Hey there Georgia Girl!

  3. Hello Grandmommy,
    It is a challenging project, for sure, but I know you will be victorious! I love the place mate Bamboo floor. It looks perfect.
    The aquarium is a really nice detail.
    Big hug

    1. Hi there Giac!
      Thank You! Ok so you like the place mat better. I think I do too. Soon comes the plants and a better aquarium. I think you will like some of the other things also going in there. :-) Major hugs!

  4. I get a modern feel with the spaces. Clean lines will work with an industrial feel.

  5. Hi there Brini!
    You and I are on the same page!


It is fun hearing from all of you!
