Manny and Patricia have a gorgeous 1920s house that's oozing with character, but they're waiting until they tie the knot to move in together. While Patricia has been living with her parents until the big day, Manny has turned the living room into quite the bachelor pad. There's a stainless-steel keg fridge, a giant TV, video-game consoles, samurai swords — it's all frat house and no feminine. Before they can achieve marital bliss, Patricia wants to get rid of the masculine mess. She wants a more sophisticated, functional, female-friendly space in the main room of their new home, and she wants it before she'll let Manny carry her over the threshold.

The newlyweds-to-be asked me to help. Do I take this male-dominated room and promise to turn it into a warm, stylish home? I do!
