My Houzz: NFL Player Clay Matthews Sets Up Brother With a Remodel

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews knows how to make things happen on the football field. But recently he pulled off a cool trick outside the stadium. After older brother Brian Matthews and Brian’s wife, Megan, welcomed home newborn twin boys, Clay surprised them with a renovation of their kitchen, dining area and family room to make their house in Cleveland more comfortable, functional and, above all, family friendly.

What a wonderful gift for a new family! My layout is very similar to before drawing. Can you tell me the length of the back wall in kitchen? (And is that a 36” or 48”range? )

Testimony to the power of good interior design. The most thoughtful gift one could give. How we live and move around our homes has a profound effect on our well being, so thoughtful interior design will surround our senses with colours and designs that make us happy, even subconsciously. It will also provide functional space in which to make our lives easier, reducing stress and providing a very personal relaxing home, so important in this age of super-fast living, it's more important than a lot of people realise. Not all of us are lucky enough to be given such a superb gift, or are able to employ a professional interior designer, so using sites like Houzz to gather advice from experts is perfect, you'll be surprised how even small changes can make a difference.

(I posted this on the Youtube video site yesterday) What an amazing brother! Plus he has a future in home decorating and renovation. Great vision, great eye and really gets design. He was far too modest in his involvement and direction. My new favorite NFL player. I had no idea what a great guy Clay is but do now.

Have been a Clay fan for several years -- on the field. The shot of him cradling his twin nephews made me feel like buying my new grandbaby a Packers Matthews jersey

Like Clay even more now. And that's coming from a Hawks fan. Although I made $105 off the Packers on a $5 a game pool one year. Still have Brett's jersey #4 in my dresser, but, after moving to Oregon went to the Hawks, Packers are #2 in my .

The renovation was beautiful, and so were the twins! Clay showed an incredible eye for design; I loved the lighting fixtures he chose and the rustic/industrial touches to the kitchen he wanted to add. Hurst Design did a fantastic job pulling everything together. Lovely.
