About the Media Room:
Her ode to converted barn interiors, Mega Dens host and interior designer Anitra Mecadon, clad second-floor media room surfaces with reclaimed wood and aged roof paneling and incorporated furnishings fashioned from repurposed materials where possible. Exposed collar ties, installed at every other rafter, extend the rustic motif. "The Mega Den is ginormous and the entrance to the office is insane," says Anitra. "Reclaimed barn wood wall, repurposed swing door-turned-barn door, giant custom ladder leading to the loft — it just brings this wicked-cool cabin vibe to the room."
