The Big Fix: Home Redecorating

Jill and Mike Poveda's turn-of-the-century home in suburban New York is loaded with distinctive details -- carved wood paneling, coffered ceilings and window seats. "I loved the house because it reminded me of where I grew up," says Jill. But the furnishings, which hadn't changed since the Povedas moved in seven years ago, didn't live up to the structure's built-in charm. The monochromatic living area lacked flair and seating was in short supply. The drab dining room needed a snappy color fix, not to mention better lighting. "I've wanted a change, but I'm afraid of making expensive shopping mistakes," Jill says. Enter New York interior designer John Loecke, who created a plan for a modern, bright update perfectly suited to this active family's needs.
