Gina & Steve were so fun to work with! As usual, our inspirational homeowner's were incredibly cool and it was a thrill for Gina, Steve and myself to meet them.
Hope you guys liked the way the room turned out. Steve & Gina were genuinely thrilled, gracious and kind. One of the first things they said to me when I arrived was how "Thy never used their living room." Even when guests came over, everyone including the kids, was watching TV in the family room. The living room had more space and a larger TV! So, it was all about designing the room to fit their style, tastes and the way they REALLY wanted to used that space. The large TV wound up in the family room and a newer, smaller one was installed in the modified bookcases...one that was on a swivel/extendable arm. Now it's a room they can lounge in, read a book or even have a drink or romantic dinner by the fire. Gina & Steve, I hope you guys love your room and home for years to come. It was my pleasure and honor to be with you and help you get to where you wanted to go. SO MUCH thanks to the oh-so talented Jared, my behind the scenes head carpenter Danny who always delivers ten fold, Rupert who quietly goes about his business impressing all of us and to Ruth & Jenn who made this episode happen with their energy, sense of fun and treat-lovin' ways! YOU GUYS ROCK!
