David: He wants rustic, she wants contemporary so what kind of colors were you thinking for the room.
Chris: Greens and blues you can’t get wrong with it right.
David: I love that, very natural and very relaxing. How about you?
Tessa: I kind of like Red and a little orange.
David: Oh wow hot and & spicy colors.
David: Energy, relaxing, stuff that are going to be in interesting mix doing the hot and cold together.
Tessa: I think it will be challenging to marry our two opinions and ideas but we seem to make it work.
Chris: I have learned to compromise in 5 years of marriage.
David: Your living room is done, come check it out.
Tessa: I’m really excited.
David: Right over there.
David: Open and see your new room.
Tessa: My god. Oh my god this is a totally different room. It’s not the same room that I love two days ago but it’s phenomenal.
Chris: It was just unbelievable. That is cool.
Tessa: I cannot believe it, it is amazing.
David: Just check out that fireplace. I an did an amazing job. Walking in and Danielle worked on that and used the reclaimed wood and we made it such a huge feature in here now.
Chris: It has a great texture, a great stories behind it. Now that was going to be able to live on in our house for a while.
David: You know the table looks great because it’s very you because you wanted that mild and rustic feel and it’s very you because of the lines, it’s very contemporary so I thought this was perfect for you guys.
Tessa: It’s gorgeous.
Chris: Yeah that is great.
Tessa: You know you said we like wall color and you were right it’s so warm in here.
David: It’s nice isn’t it.
David: Now look at the ceiling. This is the same color that’s on the floor, sandwiches in those beautiful gray and it really makes it warm and cozy but if you notice the beams they actually have architecture.
Chris: I know, they were just hidden up there all in white and now you can definitely tell the difference.
Tessa: I wouldn’t think I would like as many natural elements as I do.
Tessa: Now it is rustic but it really has kind of….
David: All of the lines are very contemporary.
Tessa: Very contemporary feel so yeah I think it’s the perfect balance.
David: You guys have a wonderful time in the living room.
