Now what do I call it.

For the past 12 years, the room in the basement has been referred to as the man cave. What do I call it now?  I've been asked what I'm going to do with it. Am I going to keep it as it is, or change the decor? Honestly, I rather like the woodsy, wildlife theme going on so I have no intentions of changing that. I do kind of hope to one day get rid of the futon that is there. It's usable but not the most comfortable thing in the world. It will do for now. There was also another couch there but it had to go. I had it hauled away. Then the chairs that you see against the back wall, one had been in this room and one had been in the living room. I moved the one from the living room down there and it worked for me.

Gibbs is good with it this way too.

Oh, and the cheap black coffee table that's falling apart, it needs to go to. But again, it will do for now.

It's your 'she-den'. I like the woodsy look also. As time goes on, you'll keep adding your own personal touches, making it more your own space. Enjoy the process.

I like it! I'd call it Ann's Comfort Zone...and have a keep out sign posted. Just you & Gibbs for now. All others trespassing will be TOAD!

Grace said...

Why does it have to be called anything at all - rec room, tv room, family room, relaxing room, basement room - what evs.

I am thinking She Shed... Ann's Hideaway... My Room..... Mine, All Mine room.....
Sanctuary, Refuge, Haven... just got it... Ann's Hideout Haven.... what ever you decide on it looks good to me.. I see master Gibbs has his own futon...

Whatever it will be you'll know when it happens. Not changing tons of things is a good thing. You'll know when it happens.

Have a fabulous day off, my friend. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. Much love coming your way. ♥♥♥

Looks real nice to me, need an area like this.

seems just fine the way it is, at least for now. I'm sure it gives you great comfort. As long as that's happening, why mess with a good thing?

This is a REALLY nice basement room! I see Gibbs has his own bed, too! No changing that!

Ann Thompson said...

LOL just me and Gibbs forever

Ann Thompson said...

Oh it doesn't, it just sounded good for the post

Ann Thompson said...

Yep, absolutely

Ann Thompson said...

I've always liked this room but never spent a lot of time in it

Ann Thompson said...

You are so right. Sort of the "if it aint broke don't fix it" rule

Ann Thompson said...

Thanks. Wade did all the work on the room. There was some finishing stuff that he never got around to doing but it'll be ok without it. Gibbs will always have a bed there for sure

I love the "She-den" name from FlowerLady's comment above. Made me giggle.

Looks like a nice comfy room to hang out in Ann! And Gibbs will be comfy there too!

I love the woodsy look... That wood ceiling is very popular these days... I love it.. I wouldn't change much --at least not now. You can add some things gradually and make it YOUR room --yours and Gibbs!!!!!! As far as a name, the first thing I thought of when seeing the room was the peace I'd feel when being in that room. SO--I'd call it "PEACE"

Hugs,
Betsy

It's a nice space. More craft room?

Ann said...

We used to watch different things on tv, him in the cave and me in the living room. I asked him once, if the basement is the man cave does that make the living room the prissy parlor?

Ann said...

Gibbs likes this room. I think he prefers it because it's cooler.

Ann said...

Peace is a nice name for it. I've always liked this room.

Ann said...

I actually considered that because there is a corner where his desk sits. After giving it more thought I decided I need to cut back on craft space instead of adding more.

Reeni said...

It's cozy! Now it's a woman cave! :)

Pam said...

How about bringing some of your touches to the space to share with Wades stuff. Maybe some crafting stuff?

I like the way it looks! I don't think I would change it either.
