It's the age-old dillema: Two people love each other, but not necessarily the same design aesthetic. With a baby on the way, Luke and Rachel Whyte were looking for a family-friendly home with both the rustic, outdoorsy style that Colorado-native Luke loves and the clean, traditional style Rachel favors. Chip and Jo delivered with a design that meets the whole family's needs. (But, don't they always?) Here's the before and after of the home's exterior:

The exterior took on a more traditional look, but the rustic style got its due in the home's living room and entryway.
