Functional, Fashionable

It doesn’t take much time or money to turn a finished basement into a cozy living space. Marin Rose and Mané Rebelo-Plaut created this vibrant, comfortable in just 2 days for under $500.

The neutral wall color allowed us to take the red couch and run with it. We purchased a loud, plush area rug from World Market for comfort and style. An inexpensive shelving unit displays books, photos and personal items. We moved the sofa pillows to the oversized chair and replaced them with accent pillows.

Some digging around in the basement storage area revealed several old posters, which we placed in inexpensive frames. Since color was our inspiration, we jazzed up the lamps with bright yellow shades.
