This dual-purpose space acts as both a game room and a media room. In the foreground, a stunning pool table wears the nontraditional tan felt top -- more suited to the room's tropical style than green; beyond, see a large TV that's been seamlessly integrated into the design of the room. Assorted tropical plants splash color into the space.
Low lighting gives this game room the perfect look for night time entertainment. Wood elements including a coffered ceiling, built in cabinets and drawers and the wood frame of the natural top pool table give the room a warm finish. A double lamp shade light fixture hangs over the pool table for concentrated light.

This imaginative contemporary kitchen, designed by Rhonda Knoche, uses thin curved metal strips to accent the cabinets, door, even the kitchen island. Hints of rust red warm up the predominantly gray palatte.
This enormous masculine closet boasts layers of sophisticated textures. Green felted wall covering lines the back of the closet storage with thin blue stripes that create the effect of a pinstripe suit. Neutral wood shelves and a rolling ladder add sleek charm while custom LED-lit closet rods make clothes easy to find.

In its original state, the inset areas around the dormers were a waste of space. To give these areas a true purpose, they were transformed into two separate homework nooks complete with custom floating desks. To create the custom desks, first 2X4 lumber and paint-grade plywood were both cut to size, mitered, attached with a nail gun, then sanded and painted.
