Guest Post – Karen from A Stylish Interior

Hi, I’m Karen from A Stylish Interior. What an honor to guest post here at So Much Better with Age, thank you Jamie! I blog about creating stylish interiors on a budget and occasionally stylish exteriors. And, maybe a recipe or two! This post is a great example of pulling together a stylish look on a budget. The furniture is all Craigslist finds! Audrey and Charlie are from Ikea. Lampshades from Target are on old lamp bases. Movie art is from Kirklands and posters are free from the theater! The old trunk was an estate sale find and the Coke beverage holder is from Walgreens on clearance! Come take a look at the Teen Movie Room

We have a large room over the garage called a “bonus room”.  It’s nice to have this over-sized room, but a challenge to furnish. When my girls were younger, I wasn’t too concerned with this room.  But, now that they are teens, I thought it would be nice to have a space for them and their friends to hang out in.  Both girls are into movies, so it was easy to pick a theme.  However, I also wanted the room to be stylish and appeal to us adults too.  By mixing movie themed decor with some jumbo abstract prints we were off to a good start. I added a dash of texture and varied the prints (pillows & lampshades) and this is the result…

Inexpensive snack center.  We fill the Coke bucket with ice and drinks when guests are over.

Drawers hold theater style candy, napkins & coasters.

Movie posters are changed out as new movie posters come to our local theater.
Just a little poster putty keeps them up.

The tray on the leather sofa is ideal for drinks and snacks to be set safely with minimal spills!

These steel/spa blue velvet curtains really absorb sound and darken the room when pulled shut.

Do you know what this is? It’s a “movie sac” by Lovesac and is totally awesome!
The movie sac is over-sized and seats an adult just fine.

The cover is a white plush faux fur and is oh-so-comfortable!

Someone snuck onto the movie sac!

The view from the sofa.  We are waiting for that dinosaur TV to bite the dust, so we can get a bigger one!

I went up into the attic and found the antique blocks that my girls played with long ago.
Thought this was a fun way to use them.  I could really use an “s”!

The girls really like bringing their friends into this space to watch movies and the adults like it too!
