cottage, family room style...





Did you see this reveal?  

First let me rewind....
Veronica & Kelvin were so excited to be a part of this makeover.  They wanted a change and they wanted it bad.  They have a beautiful home and two great kids and I can tell you, they were as sweet and charming in person as they were on TV.  Veronica had some of the most AMAZING cupcakes waiting for us on reveal day!

I knew that they would be happy with their new room, but I was not prepared for their emotional response (especially Veronica's).  I wish you could be there during reveals.  Looking into the homeowner's eyes during those reveal moments is quite an experience.  I don't know if I have the right words to describe it, so I'm not even going to try.  I will just say, it makes all the hard work worth while!

The Kon's RMS inspirational homeowner's were on the mark!  

-CRISSY & G.W.'s TV storage was practical and stylish.  Crissy found the perfect piece for their home and they couldn't be happier.  The Kon's wanted the same experience, something that fits their style and hides all the TVs and components. 

-JENNIFER & KATIE'S family photo wall really caught Veronica & Kelvin's attention.  They wanted to be able to display their own family photos and wanted to do it in a fun, non formal manner so that the room still felt kid friendly.

-TARA's use of color and stylish storage solutions were VERY inspiring for the Kon's.  Tara had great advice for them and inspired them with her creativity.

Jared, Jason, Ron, Jacob & Ivana created their usual magic while working under an incredibly tight deadline and budgetary concerns.  The media cabinet build that Jason was in charge of turned out incredibly....it was exactly as I had designed it and jason was able to make it happen under challenging circumstances!  THE best team!
