Katie and Jason moved into their Las Vegas home two years ago to achieve their dream of helping kids by becoming foster parents. We reworked the entire main floor to provide a warm, welcoming vibe while fulfilling the state’s safety requirements for fostering.

Before & After
DESIGN, MEET FUNCTION
Katie and Jason really wanted a working fireplace in their newly renovated home, but we needed to make it both safe for children and stylish enough to fit their new design. Based on our inspiration tour, Katie really liked a floor-to-ceiling design, but an unexpected plumbing cost meant we needed to get that money back by tiling up only to the mantel. No problem: we selected a beautiful tile that still draws the eye and matches up perfectly with the paint we selected to surround it.
CENTERING ON THE KIDS
A kids’ play area was a must in Katie and Jason’s Forever Home. Creating a welcoming environment for children entering their home for the first time would show them they were in a safe, loving home. We placed the kids’ space in the middle of the home, so the family’s two new arrivals would know they were the center of the home and of Katie and Jason’s lives.
Katie and Jason’s original home layout had a dining room table jammed right behind the living room area, which wasn’t conducive to conversation and often led to some sneaky plate thefts, courtesy of their dogs. When we redesigned their layout, we added wraparound seating at the kitchen island so the whole family could see each other–and keep an eye out for any four-legged bandits.
