The room's troubles included sadly outdated furniture, minimal storage space and a Liberace-inspired fireplace that was too flamboyant for its drab surroundings.
The couple wanted an elegant family room to match the rest of their house, but they also wanted a casual space where they could entertain, play, watch TV and move around without tripping over books and toys. So I made the forbidden trip down the basement steps and geared up to combine elegant and casual in one large, multifunctional space.
