What was your biggest obstacle in this space?

Being that the family has three young children, we had to be aware of the type of furniture and fabrics we choose. We wanted everything to remain sophisticated, modern and stylish with a kid-friendly touch.

How does the end result match up with your original vision for the space?

The home came out even better than anticipated, from the moldings down to the last accent pillow.
