Infusing Modern Style to a Craftsman-Style Family Room
Episode HRMR-304ZSee all Episodes
Single mom Denise Jaxon was unhappy with her attempts to add sophistication to the family room of her craftsman-style home. The Rate My Space design team, led by Angelo Surmelis, starts her makeover by tearing out old baseboards and infusing a soothing color palette of blue-gray, mauve and white. Next, they install hand-crafted baseboards, much larger than what Denise had in the room previously, to help make a bold statement. Carpenter Jared Dostie builds a one-of-a-kind craftsman-style entry table with tapered legs for a sleeker feel. New tiles around the fireplace and modern low-slung seating finish the room in a style that's both cosmopolitan and craftsman.
