project reveal: mid-century inspired music room

You may remember back in May when I shared a small update on this room after we put in new flooring. We didn't touch it for almost a year and we never, ever went in here because it had no function. I had always planned for this extra bedroom in our house to be used for Charlie's music/"man" room (you can see the beginning of my plans for this room in this post and this post). I also wanted it to function as a secondary guest room because we occasionally have extra visitors and I feel awful when they have to sleep on an inflatable mattress.
I was convinced I wanted to paint this room a dark shade of green, but I could never get Charlie on board. I let him pick out the paint color, and it totally surprised me that he picked this airy shade of mint green. It is called Breath of Spring by Behr. At first I really wasn't sure about it because I thought it made the room look like a nursery, but after putting everything in the room it's definitely growing on me. We also replaced the outdated ceiling fan with this gold semi-flush light by Minka Lavery.
You may have seen my instagram post about this little ottoman that I found last week on a HomeGoods run. I envisioned using it as a movable ottoman/small coffee table for the sofa bed, but the proportions were all wrong. I'm saving it for when we upgrade to a sleeper sofa, and for now I'm using it as a temporary side table for our Eames look-alike chair, which was one of the first (and one of my favorite) purchases we made for this house! 
This sofa bed is very temporary, and is only here to keep our extra guests from having to sleep on the floor. Unfortunately the color is much more blue than it appeared online, so it sort of clashes with everything. Since we're only keeping it for a short time I refuse to buy things to make it work, so right now I'm using things that don't necessarily "go" with it, but I plan to keep long term. I'm kind of mad at myself for buying it in the first place, but for now I'll just have to deal with it making everything look a little off.
I created a small whiskey and scotch bar in this corner, complete with one of my favorite prints from the local Dallas business, Read Between the Lines.
This dresser functions perfectly as a mid-century inspired media console, and right now you can find it for a total steal on clearance! Also, in real life these photos aren't hanging as close to the TV as they appear in this picture, but I can definitely see that they need to be spread out a few inches. I hung these up by myself one night when I couldn't sleep and didn't have an extra set of eyes to help!
The part of the room that you don't see in these pictures are the 80's mirrored closet doors and an unpainted interior door. I've ordered the new closet doors, and once they're painted and installed I'll share with you what a difference it makes!
