MAN CAVE INSPIRATION — RUSTIC INDUSTRIAL

So my goal with this man cave was to give Ryan a very masculine “rustic” look, instead of a dead animal log cabin feel:)  He has a log cabin waaaaaaayyy up north that is darling and I love the feel, but I wanted this to be something different.   A little more refined maybe.  And a tiche more “trendy.”  Since rustic, wood and antlers is so popular right now, I’m super excited to incorporate Ry’s animals and give him a super cozy, rustic, manly place that he can kick back in and watch football or escape for some quiet time!

Here’s where we are at so far.

We are using some of the old barn wood for the window wall and to plank the fireplace.  It will look something like this…

We have big rustic beams in there already like this…

I’m so in love with them I want them in my house! I can’t wait to show you:)

We are going to do dark gray trim like this..

and a possible board and batten wall like that as well.

And then the fun stuff….Ry got a big leather sectional, and we are going to warm it up with some cozy throws and pillows and possibly a cowhide rug like this…

Oh, and what’s a man cave without some antlers.  I can do SOME :)

Tastefully.

So my anniversary present to the hubs??

Yep.  An antler chandelier.  Never thought I’d be gifting that:)

Happy Anniversary babe!!

Well, I’m off to set up the barn and man cave for our last day of the Whimsy sale.  And then we pack it up for the year.  You can get a better look of where the man cave is at now, and the progess that Ry made.
