Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe family room's design blends both of the couple's styles with modern furniture and rustic accessories,
Interior designer Lee Snijders bridges the design divide by trading some of the rustic furniture for more modern pieces, revamping the window treatments and removing the out-of-date beanbag chair. Lee enlists the help of design coordinators Charles Burbridge, who refinishes the game table and replaces the outdated chairs, and Summer Baltzer, who adds a large, upholstered bench along the awkward step that leads to the rest of the house. Taking a cue from the thin window, Lee creates shelves that elongate the lines of the window and fireplace, while providing display space. He also brings in Jennifer's country style with accessories and striped fabric.
