From making music to playing games, the Marshalls are a tight-knit clan. Their basement could be the perfect place to hang out but its shabby decor, weird lay out, and broken down fireplace makes it a space that is not conducive for family fun time. Enter designer Antonio Ballatore, who turns the Marshall's wishes for a hip hangout basement into the ultimate place to rock out, play games and hang in style! Inspired by rock and roll and classic 80's arcade themes, Antonio rips out the Marshall's old fireplace and bulky closet to expand the space, gives the walls colorful paint and custom boom box wall paper treatments, creates a seating area with custom banquets inspired by the family's vintage 1968 Ford Galaxy, builds a 'road case' media center that houses 3 TVs and designs an array of graphically personalized vintage arcade games to fill the space with life, love and energy.
