The homeowners, their two young sons and three dogs all share this space. It is not practical or pretty. They would like more storage, less brick and easy-to-clean flooring. We asked for your help -- you voted on a new fireplace, flooring, furniture and more. Browse through the slides to see what you picked.
Massive Brick Wall is No More
We asked you to vote on the style and finish of the new fireplace and crown molding. For the fireplace, you picked a dark-finish, classic-style mantel with recessed panels. It works perfectly with the ornate molding you selected. For the wall color, you voted for Sherwin Williams' Halcyon Green.
You selected a tall cabinet with semi-concealed storage to help keep the toys at bay. For the entryway, full-glass, French doors won the vote. And for the floors, the Brazilian-walnut finish was the winner.
A rich, red leather sofa won the furniture vote (very practical for a house with kids). For the whimsical accessory, you choose a lovely buffalo skull.
