Before: Stuck in the '80s
Over a decade ago Gene and Dede Gallonio designed and built their 8,000-square-foot home to reflect their casual, contemporary tastes and accommodate their growing family. Fourteen years later, however, lifestyles and design styles have changed in the Gallonio home. The kids are grown and gone, and Gene and Dede, now empty-nesters, are looking to update their '80s-style living room. They hope that experts can help them create a modern/contemporary formal living room that is still reflective of their unique preferences, but one that will suit their needs for years to come.
