I love Houzz and the beautiful homes contained within. But once in a while a home just blows my socks off and this one definitely fits the profile. I appreciate the hard work and thoughtfulness of this home... GREAT JOB! As much as I LOVE the industrial bed, I think I would need a mattress ;) Thanks for sharing, this made my day!

The Moroccan Light is amazing! Not sure if it looks better on or off. The shape of the light itself is beautiful, but the most exciting part of the lamp to me is the patterns that it reflects onto the ceiling when it is lit. Truly a pretty and well designed piece.

You need to get rid of the symmetry and take advantage of the angled ceiling. On the left, notice the distance between your shelf and the ceiling. Now compare to the right side... It feels cramped on the left and bare on the right making your symmetrical decor seem lopsided. Mimic the ceiling with your wall decor, for example, smaller pictures to the left and larger to the right, or one shelf on one side of your TV and two shelves on the right side of your TV. I would also use a lower and longer cabinet than the one you have for a better balance of wall space. Good luck!

Sorry when I said to replace TV with something larger. Was a larger TV. Then hide the cables behind the wall. Electricians can easily do that and get the hangomatic so you do the job fast. Then you won't need as many other items around it. The larger TV will be enough.

you don't need an electrician to hide the wires, punch a small hole in the wall behind the tv and another by the outlet, tape wires together and using a 5$ snake from the hardware store, pull the wires through. takes minutes if no obstructions.
