Everyone has an “oh shit” area in their home. Whether that be a closet, corner, chair, or an entire room; there’s always that space that just accumulates, well ... shit! That area for me was the back bonus room. What the hell do you do with a one car garage sized room with no closet and semi-shoddy ventilation? Despite the urge to build an extensive box fortress, I instead created a usable space with multiple functionalities and lots of personality. Welcome to the office/video game/nap/future play room!
I wanted this room to be my DO WHATEVER THE FUCK you want space and incorporate decor elements and color schemes I wouldn't have the cajones to use in our main living spaces. Queue the blush pink, llamas & phallic cacti! This room is truly my spirit animal and proof that you can have multiple design tastes and shouldn't be afraid to express them.
This room is functional AND transitional; a desk for laptop time, a couch for the man to nap and enjoy his occasional video games time, but shelving, storage and soft landings for a future playroom as we plan for a family.
