Contemporary, Chic Living Room with a Dramatic Flair

Hosts Andrika Lawren and Emmanuel Belliveau combine a couple's passions to redesign their living room.

Before: Shabby Style

Bill and Eva Novak have a living room full of junk their daughters would like to see emptied into a dumpster. After 20 years of putting up with their parents' jumbled living room, daughters Jackie and Sue thought it was time for a change. When their family first moved into the house, Bill decided to remove a wall in the main living area, creating one very long room. Bill has a passion for travel souvenirs, while Eva has always dreamed of a space fit for a soap-opera star. They do a lot of entertaining and the space is perfect for mingling, but it lacks intimate conversation areas.
