Decorating Secrets A Family Home with Style Designed by Melissa Amos Purchased by an active family of four with two dogs, this Summerlin track home lacked character, light and style. The kitchen felt dark due to dated, builder grade cherry cabinets, while the hub of the home, the family room, had odd window configurations, worn out carpet and zero appeal. Celebrity designer Melissa Amos infused a contemporary aesthetic that’s clean, light and functional. Taking the space from dingy and dark to bright, airy and modern, she created a space that’s as practical for entertaining as it is for everyday living, all within a budget the homeowner could afford. 52 BEFORE
