Jyoti and Peter are happiest when their home is filled with family, friends and food. So it's no surprise that their big suburban home is the place where everyone gathers for celebrations throughout the year. But the crowded, 1980s-inspired room in which they gathered was in desperate need of a makeover. Its purple fireplace, mirrored walls and weathered carpet made the room look anything but festive. With another holiday season quickly approaching and the family gearing up for a big soiree, Jyoti and Peter asked me to create a fabulous new family room: a warm, bright space that would suit the whole gang.
Bold strokes of color and distinctive finishes and fabrics prove you can have it both ways.
