Scottsdale furniture store Breuners Arizona was selected by "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" to furnish rooms in the new home of Brian and Nicole Okvath in a Spanish/modern theme.
Decorations for the bedroom of daughter Kassandra, the 8-year-old leukemia patient whose wish started the makeover, is being kept secret until Friday, as are those for a special room designed by the show’s host, Ty Pennington.
According to Breuners, which donated the $55,000 worth of furniture, other rooms will have the following amenities:
• First floor lounge: Two oversized traditional brown chenille chairs with contrasting black pillows and a round copper end table.
• Craft room: Four brushed silver chairs around a built-in craft table.
• Family room: A tangerinecolored, six-piece sofa sectional and two microfibercovered chairs border the fireplace. Matching cocktail, end and sofa tables have wicker baskets and kid-safe rounded corners. A new plasma television will sit on an entertainment center.
• Dining room: A 60-inchsquare dining room table in a warm finish with eight mochacolored leather chairs.
• Master bedroom: Mom and dad will have a king-size bed, matching armoire, dresser, mirror and night stand. The pieces are made from reclaimed aged wood from 100-year-old Brazilian homes. A sitting area with two contemporary chaises completes the bedroom.
• Kids’ rooms: Six-year-old Gabby’s room will have maple veneer furniture and a gymnastics theme. Four-year-old Levi’s room will have handrubbed raspberry and blueberry finishes and a trundle bed for sleepovers.
Two-year-old twins Josiah and Tobiah will share a room which will have natural solid wood furniture. And 4-monthold Jonathan’s room has a new crib, changing table and hutch in a white finish.
