What can I put here!
jjgratwicksarllOctober 17, 2013
This is my room, I've recently redesigned it with some malm chests and canvas with some framed posters are on their way (hopefully) but I can't decide what would be nice to put here instead of the football table. What should go there?

Once the football table is gone, I would consider putting NOTHING there. You don't need to fill every inch of the room. I like what you've done and if you show me the whole wall, without the football table, maybe I'll think differently.

Ok I will post some pictures of the room and the wall adjacent to my bed and above the football table, thanks for the comments and I also would love some suggestions of what canvas paintings I should put up, colours ect. The wardrobes around the bookcase are being replaced as well perhaps some suggestions there as well! Thanks so much!

In order to help you select artwork, would you please tell your gender, age and interests?

Ok I am male, I like architecture, the country, sports, geography and I have a general appreciation of realistic drawings eg. A sunset or the like. I am a teenager but I'm not a fan of posters and football scarfs and stuff on the walls I would say I prefer more adult and sleek/ modern and simple designs, big fan of Swedish architecture!

You might like black and white photography, and in particular, architectural photos. I like this piece: http://www.gallerydirect.com/art/product/michael-joseph/archetype?substrate_id=2&product_style_id=5&frame_id=11&size=14x20

If you have Aaron Brothers in your area, they have excellent coupons, and attractive frames and art.

Thanks, I really like their black and white stuff put I'm unsure if it would fit against the green wall? Have you changed your mind about the football table situation or is the open space the best way to go? I'm really liking what the room is turning out to be thanks for the link as well.

It's most important that you like it...enjoy the football table while you can. My partner won't let me put a pinball machine anywhere in the house :(

Dc I got the table as an unexpected present and have not played it enough I love the game it's just a shame no one else I know does. And I love pinball you should just sneak one in!

Not from that company, except probably with exorbitant freight charges, but I expect that you can find similar b&w architectural photography in England too. You could even make some of your own if you have a good camera.

Regarding the space left empty with the removal of the football game, I still haven't seen the rest of the wall to the right.

Think the noise would give away that the pinball is there...sure you have some mates that would get into playing football.

That has been suggested I think it's the best way to go, it won't cost too much either.

I'm sure there's a mute button on it if not a volume switch at the very least! :) I do have friends that like football but its barely out, Table Tennis is the main hub of the house!

Ahahaha true! My main pinball action happens on holiday or on the pier both get way to intense with a line of angry holiday makers behind you, the nostalgia of being told to 'hit left' or 'smash right' reappears every time I see a machine, still the best thing on the pier by a country mile though!

Ok I will show you the wall, the place is a bit messy at the moment! That's basically the whole south facing wall.

Agree with the direction...need to organize your closet. May be time to purge some of the contents

Yeah totally agree, I moved the table and most of the organised baskets under it so some ideas of what could replace it were suggested. I defiantly need to get rid of some things though.

Honestly nothing needed...gives you some space to breathe. I do like the B&W photo suggestion

Ok thanks you've all been awesome help I've been stuck with what to do with that space for months and I haven't had the guts to put it on Houzz! The photo idea suggested by Carolyne is also one that I will seriously consider, just remember Christmas is 2 months away, old or young that pinball machine is a possibility :)

Thanks for the photos, JJ. That area of the room just needs some of your own stunning architectural photos on the wall, nothing else. I'd move the small malm chest perhaps 18" to the right and place a big vertical framed photo above it, then add more on the wall to the right of the chest.
