Thanks, I'd love to see your photos, as you always post great looking shots!
Just added. See edit but not taken with natural light.
And one more showing the contrast with the dark blue single wall.
I don't know if you are serious but I hope you are because I think it's a great idea!
Oh yeah, that is really rich and sharp, I love it!
Heck yeah, I'm serious!
I also have a huge collection of vintage tiki mugs and a Bosko carving to display!
We have a shag rug in our living room, but we're thinking of tossing it out because we don't know how to clean it!
Yeah. This is a Flokai. Every 2-3 years I have to send to a carpet company who cleans and returns.
Looks awesome G!
Glad you lived with it for a bit first....the trim idea is good too!
It'll look terrific!
You cannot have The Mango!
I don't trust Consumer Reports as far as I can throw them. They are a shadow of what they once were IMO. I believe the last time I checked on paint they didn't like Benjamin Moore paint.
But I do. The stuff is durable it goes on so much better than anything else I've tried and the colors are fantastic and they last. I have mostly Benjamin Moore paint in my house including the red room I've posted in this thread multiple times:
I figured CR would add more validity than my opinion, SW is not very good paint. Benjamin Moore is very good, Kelly-Moore is good paint as well.
See, the lighter-colored wall trim works!
Yes it does....my home library/office. ....Brick Red
....fyi .....music in here too!
Interesting wall art!!
A local Manitoba artist ap .....hand formed and hand painted leather masks.
.......we've had them for decades
I suspected that was the Hipgnosis book in the third photo. The fourth confirmed it! It's great, but I feel like they missed a trick by not publishing it in a larger format. It will probably make an appearance when I put my listening room pics on here.
I like how your office is twice the size of my listening room! You Americans and your massive houses... Great photos as usual. Any reason you took them in B&W? (Particularly as colour has been a hot topic here lately)
I love the Hipgnosis book. I get the size thing but I love that I can sit, hold it and flip through it easily unlike my other massive sized art books. Either way it's still cool.
I guess I was in a black and white mood and my office downstairs is pretty monochromatic anyway. Light grey wall paint like I posted earlier. and my Flor Carpet Squares are grey and black.
The CD wall and baseboard trim are the same white and (I painted that ceiling beam black). Aside from the vintage teak wall unit (found pretty cheaply actually) I have bits of deep blue around. The JBL 100 blue grilled speakers and the day bench which is dark blue leather...and bu red Strat. Getting so damn metro sexual around here
There’s so much stuff in this room I think it’s best with a simple light color.
Here are some color images for you
Mondo here in Austin have released a few limited Tikis that are film themed. I have the Gremlins and Alien ones and they're awesome.
The favorite one in my collection is from Tiki Bob's in San Francisco. I found it at the swap meet in Alameda about 15 years (the same place I found that neat lamp), and now they go for around $150!
I'm in on the Tiki! I'll try to put some pics up this weekend.
Mazzy we used to have a house with the same floor plan as yours so I can relate to how the space would feel as if you were there. You have made it look spectacular!
Thanks. Yes is a semi track split level. The flippers took out the walls around the small lit hen to open the main room. Added a beam in the addictvto support it all.
Creamsicles are always a delicious treat!
