{Guest Post} The Matt Cave

10/11/2011






Matt was so excited about guesting on The Short and the Sweet of It a few weeks back (remember baby fashion), that he wrote up a few other posts, just in case I might want to feature him again. His office, or as we call it, The Matt Cave, is a space entirely designed and constructed by him. While I poke fun at his dreary/gothic decor choices, I must admit, it's a cozy little spot to escape to. 

Part of the fun of growing up is being able to finally have the means to undertake childhood projects that weren’t feasible at a young age.

Ever since I first saw the attic scene in “Goonies” (Richard Donner, 1985) where the kids find a slew of maps and old clues to lost treasure, I became fascinated with attics. The idea of what hidden history and forgotten treasure might be found, mixed in with a little dark and foreboding scariness, always made me want to have one of my own, and fill it accordingly.

Coming from SoCal suburbia, the house I grew up in didn’t have an attic, and it would’ve been too new to hold any old forgotten treasure, much less be dark and foreboding.

But now we live in a much older house, and I finally have the attic I’ve always wanted, and turned it into my personal office to boot! Everyone insists on calling it my “Man Cave,” but I prefer the “Matt Cave,” because I’m not quite sure if this interest is limited to just men (my 7 year old niece loves going up there for example).

Given, when I acquired the attic, much of it was just filled with old junk, and I’ve had to “darken” it up a bit with a more foreboding flair, but the intrigue and scene is perfect for any side project I happen to think up, and makes working from home much more entertaining. Not to mention of course, as my modern day adventures pile up, I’m sure it will be filled with hidden treasures in no time.

This is great! We don't have an attic either (Sherman Oaks area of LA) but if I did have one I'd love to do something with it!

I LOVE attics! Renovated attics are the best. If you get the chance, you should look up my post "Bam! Fashion Flashback". Happy Tuesday!

How great to have a space like this--love the rustic elements!

Kat said...

i love that it was inspired by the goonies.....

Matt Cave looks awesome! It looks like a room out of a film set and it's perfect for Halloween, too. This is the kind of room that I want to explore further! Great job, Matt!
