If you haven't caught HGTV's My Favorite Place, it is a fun show. I caught the episode that showed Jonathon Adler and his Partner Simon Doonan's residence. What caught me most was all the color. I really loved that they said, no one uses a formal living room anymore so we made ours a game room, complete with ping pong table.
They simply made it out of 2 table bases and plywood, then covered with bright and fun wallpaper. Love it.
