Season 8, Episode 3

Functional Family Room/Office

Active mom Marilyn works entirely from her home with her writing career and Pilates instructions. She recently moved with her three children to a smaller home, since they will soon be heading off to college. She brought all of her large-scale furniture with her from her last house and is finding that the new space is a little overcrowded. Since her main-floor family room also serves as a breakfast nook and home office, it isn't functional in its current state. She wants a comfortable, casual space that will work equally well for the family, but also be stylish enough to hold meetings with clients. Host Candice Olson sets out to turn the furniture-filled family room/office into a functional space that fits all of the family's needs.
