When designing the family, Mega Dens host and interior designer Anitra Mecadon, was inspired to create a 1920s, bootlegger bungalow vibe in a subtle way. "Anything you need to do as a family is incorporated into this space," says Anitra.

During the Blog Cabin's People Choice's voting period, the online community voted on a reclaimed mantel to be finished with a patina copper banding that fits with the room's décor.

The media wall is cladded in Ipe Brazilian hardwood. Since the natural red hues competed with the room's aesthetic, "we used black tea as primer, with steel wool and vinegar to bring it down to a brown color," explains project manager Dylan Eastman.
