Great Room SpaceMeg worked with the existing mid-century architecture in the main living area. She kept the original brick flooring, refinishing it in a glossy sheen for an updated look. A few coats of white paint transformed dark wood walls with olive green trim from drab to fab. “White paint gets you pretty far,” she says.
