Let's just start this by saying, I want an art/craft/workshop room and this year, I believe that will be a reality. Tim & Cecilia's need for one was really inspiring to me. When we finished this episode and I looked around at the function that was available for both of them to do what they love, I was personally inspired to create that for myself as well.
Where do I begin with Tim & Cecilia? They are both so creative, funny, smart, witty, self effacing and Cecilia is one great cook! Not only does she write articles on food, she is also a multiple published cook book author and one hell of a choc. chip cookie baker!
Check out her book here: CECILIA
The two of them together were a pleasure to be around. We all had fun & laughed a lot.
It's always amazing to me that any work gets done, especially when we are out of our minds and decide to take on two rooms instead of one--without increasing our time schedule. Yup, we're pretty much koo-koo for cocoa puffs. Mmmmmm, breakfast.
Most of the heavy lifting is executed by my incredible team, Jared, Jen, Jason, Edgar & Sebastian. Edgar & Sebastian joined the team on this episode and it was as if they had always been there with us. Jason (my lead carpenter on this team) and his already incredible skills were complimented beautifully with the addition of Edgar & Sebastian.
Tim & Cecilia live in this really quaint & eclectic home where every bit of it feels like who they are. The office/work/TV space was the only part of the house that didn't feel like it was connected to them. They desperately wanted function and style, but for some reason they were stuck. Even though they could figure it out in every other part of their home, they were stuck here. I was happy to help them get a bit "unstuck."
Of course, that didn't happen without a little inspiration from people like you!

Thank you all:
LISA has a fantastic oversized desk that could handle the scrapbooking work load and provide for storage. This was a great stylish solution to a room that could easily be cluttered. Awesome job Lisa!
SHANNON just "hit the nail on the head" in terms of storage, storage & more storage! The cool thing was that she didn't sacrifice her own personal style to accomplish that.
CAREY & PATTI have created the most UBER home theater. This is like going out to the movies. We didn't have this kind of time, budget or even space to deal with but we knew we could definitely be inspired by this incredible screening room.
