How do you transform a neglected, 100-year-old home into a fun and functional family hub? Homeowner Danielle Nicholas shows us how as she tours her renovated home — from living room with custom fireplace to industrial kitchen, and converted principal suite to third floor kids’ bedrooms. (It’s the same cool space the she and her actor husband Greg Bryk featured on the W Network show Building Bryks.) Learn her tips for where to save and where to splurge, and how to add quirky accents to kids’ spaces.
