Carroll and Paul own a traditional home on a wooded lot close to their favorite golf and country club. Guests are always coming by to play a round or two with the couple or to just hang out and watch golf on television. While most of the decor in the house had been updated over the years, the living room-the biggest entertainment space in the house-was left untouched. It looked like a Victorian tearoom, complete with old finishes, outdated lighting and prim furnishings. It was so lacking in style that Paul had even haphazardly hung a sheet on the wall that served as a screen for those televised golf games.
The couple desperately wanted a room that was comfortable and elegant and in which they could relax as well as entertain friends and family. So I gathered my crew and turned "Grandma's living room" into the ultimate golf-watching and entertainment space.
