Newlyweds Chuck and Elizabeth recently moved into a spacious, Rocky Mountain home with a wall of windows facing the breathtaking Salt Lake City Valley. The problem? This grand '80s-style living room is overlooked and underused. With a love for entertaining, this couple longs to turn this space into a stylish, city-inspired lounge, which lives up to its postcard perfect view. Who better to call than world-class husband and wife design team, Robert and Cortney Novogratz? Inspired by Utah's scenic mountain landscape, first plan of attack is to transform the room's massive fireplace. After the dark, dated granite is ripped out, this wood burning focal point is covered floor-to-ceiling with rugged strips of Utah's own reclaimed wood. To give the space a personalized spark, an old white wall is covered with framed photographs of the newbie lovebirds. To ensure this lounge will pack a punch of style and fun, Robert and Cortney bring in a completely reconstructed vintage pool table! By the end, the Novogratzs give Chuck and Elizabeth the ultimate wedding gift - a chic, modern, Rocky Mountain lounge, worthy of its spectacular view!
