Todd and Wendy bought their first home after living in Asia, bringing a few treasures with them. They want to create a modern Zen aesthetic in their kitchen and family room, but they are stuck on which colors to choose. Host Jane Lockhart helps them find a color combination that will give them their dream Zen kitchen and family room with a modern twist.

In the open kitchen/family room space, the breakfast bar takes up a lot of space and is not used often. The fireplace has too many layers and is clearly not the minimalist style they like. The sofa is too large for the space, but they need comfortable seating. Kids' toys line the opposite wall without effective storage. The room lacks both cohesive style and color.
