Man Room: Sources

Thanks for the kind words on the man room / man cave makeover.  Even though its much more for the Mr. than me, it does feel like a mini vacation when I go down there.  All clean and toyless.   Speaking of the Mr., he will be overjoyed to see so many of you chided me for my resistance to a larger TV.  I will definitely never hear the end of it.  I guess he has to be right sometimes. :)


For those of you that commented/emailed, I've put the sources of all the objects of the room in one place.  Hope you find it helpful.  If you have any other questions about this or anything else, don't hesitate to ask.

Wall Color: Benjamin Moore Metallic Silver  which is not at all metallic and more blue than silver.

Floors: Porcelain faux wood tiles purchased at Classic Tile. Sorry I don't remember the brand but they have a good selection of wood look tiles there so it would be pretty easy to locate.

Rug: NuLoom Chevron in Gray - which actually looks quite blue - purchased at Overstock but RugsUSA has it as well.  The prices between the two seem to fluctuate a lot so price checking pays off.

Couch: sectional purchased from Jennifer Convertibles primarily b/c their delivery service will rip the couch apart and put it back together again in order to get it down here.

Console: Craigslist score

Posters: Purchased from ebay (seller: noahimage), framed in Ikea Ribba

Map: Vintage, purchased from Hoof & Antler

Alligator Head: Hunters & Gatherers at the Brooklyn Flea 

Coffee Table: CB2

Safety Sign & Globe: Found at Brimfield

Hanging Display Boxes: Boxes made right here, vintage cameras collected over time.

Passport Art: Made right here.


  1. I love that paint color! I'm hoping to pick out a light silver this weekend and I know it's going to be a challenge to just pick one.

  2. What a fantastic space, perfect colors and I love the artwork and carpet.


  3. such a fabulous room.. and i am totally in love with the rug. my home office is painted in a silvery grey and i have been looking for a rug.. so thrilled that you posted the source.. thank you thank you thank you..

  4. Just want to refer to this room as a cellar and it seems to have no windows - so it's underground?? What do you call then, the floor under your main house with possibly an entrance door under your front steps? Nice colour scheme by the way! and my OH would def like a much larger screen too!

    1. We call it the basement although cellar also works. Yes its underground.

  5. toyless? what is that? Ha. Looks fabulous!!!

    You found a great balance between 'guy room' and a style that you can still appreciate yourself - good work!

  7. Are you happy with your couch? Is it comfortable? Love the style of the basement!

    1. Thanks Jill. Yes its pretty comfortable. I've been known to fall asleep on it while watching a movie so I'd say that is pretty cozy.
