DIANA & KAREN LOVATI

AGE: 37 & 37

LOCATION: 23612 Canozte Street, Woodland Hills, CA 91367

BUDGET: $5-10K

THE ROOM:

  • Diana and Karen are looking to completely revamp their home, starting with the living room. It’s the center of their home, and a place they want to be able to enjoy with their children and entertain friends and family. Right now the room has a lot of empty space- they have an outdated black leather couch that sits in the middle of the room and a TV with a stand and a shelf. The rest of the room is used as a play area for their children, and their toys are scattered throughout.

  • They hate the layout of the room and are clueless as to what to do with it- they’re hoping the designers will be able to make a space that’s modern, safe for their kids, and a place they can host guests. They think the biggest challenges for the designers will be the rock-walled fireplace (they’d love to hang the TV there), changing the white carpet, getting rid of the textured white walls, and creating unique storage for all of their children’s toys.

 

BACKSTORY:

  • In their previous home, Diana and Karen had a very difficult time agreeing on anything design related, and so their home was never properly put together. Now that they are living in a different house, they need to come to an understanding to make their home feel complete.

  • They have been together for six years, married for four, and have two small children. Several times a month they host gatherings with their loved ones and they’re embarrassed because they don’t have a proper space to host. With an updated living room, they’ll finally have a home that they’re proud of and they hope this facelift will motivate them to give the rest of the house an upgrade.
