‘The Fort’ Mancave
You might remember me finishing ‘The Fort’ last year at The Fig House and even blogging about it, but the ‘after’ photos only showed a little bit and weren’t styled and un-styled spaces hurt my soul. So we went back in and shot it properly.
This space is crazy hard to shoot – with just one natural light source, bare bulb lights and a huge mirror at the end – that is so pretty and is perfect design wise because it bounces the natural light back, but makes it hard to shoot unless you are a vampire.
In case you missed the first post about it – it was done pretty run ‘n gun. My contract was over on the project when this building was built but I couldn’t just let it get done without me because everyone would think that I did it and what if, well, they did a really bad job at it. Soooo, I agreed to design it as long as we do it fast and furious, without a lot of debating or back and forth – where I get to make most of the decisions. This situation is obviously the most fun and takes up the least amount of resources.
That paint color is ‘Chelsea Gray’ by Benjamin Moore. It’s pretty darn great.
As most of you remember that octogon motif runs throughout The Fig House on all the ‘millwork’. I would say that that wraps up The Fig House but we have the landscaping to talk about. So stay tuned for an exterior post that we’ve been working on for, say, 2 years. It’s real in depth journalism over here, apparently, and yes, some of our posts take years to pull together. It’s rather hilarious.
This particular ‘Get the look/look for less’ I feel like is pretty close in style and quality. The sconces are a big difference but the rest of the pieces are pretty comparable.
