Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis family room was decorated when the couple married more than 20 years ago.
Stepping into Neil and Rochelle Kanoff's family room is like stepping back in time. Everything in their room is from the 1970s or 1980s. The couple decorated their house when they got married over 20 years ago and they haven't updated it since. Can Angelo Surmelis and the 24 Hour Design team help Neil and Rochelle move their family room into the 21st century?

This room is like a time warp. The stuff is old, but can't qualify as an antique. Some of the items in the room are from Neil and Rochelle's college days. They've had the same couch, lamp, table and chairs for 25 years and the entertainment center for 15 years. The computer desk is so old, they've had it since before computers were invented.
