Bachelor Pad Project

I hinted a while back (like WAY back) about a bachelor pad project that was in the works. Now that our buddy Matt (you saw him in our apartment tour video) is mostly settled in his new apartment, we're finally starting to talk about real plans, layout, and purchases.

I have really loved getting to brainstorm for this project. Part of me really loves masculine design, leather seating, dark walls, and (of course!) a swanky bar. Plus Matt has great taste, so that helps!

Some of my inspiration pictures...

Matt already owns the majority of furniture we'll be using in his one-bedroom (and not all what you would expect to find in a bachelor pad pre-decorator!), but we're still shopping for a few key pieces to fill in gaps and replace things that are too bulky/cheap-looking.

And since I think he'll let me go a little outside-of-the-box, some of my creative ideas include...

Graffitti art

Army blankets

High gloss

Ya know, basically just trying to tap into my inner Miles Redd and Nick Olsen... we'll see how it goes.

Oh, did I mention this was a budget project?

Can't wait to have you following along! Adding the tag "bachelor pad project" to make navigating easy. I'll share our "before" pictures soon!
