Colorful Basement/Music Room

A lower-level basement/music room turns into a colorful family room that's sure to be the homeowners' favorite place to be.

Before: Lacking a Color Scheme

There is very strong design influence on both sides of Laura and David's partnership. He runs an antique shop and she is a stained glass artist. She loves deep color while he prefers pastels and so far their house has survived with compromise. The main family room downstairs is a big a space that leads straight out the backyard. Laura usually makes the color decisions, but in this case, David just doesn't trust her to make the right one so they need host Jane Lockhart's help to reach a compromise.
