Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe Hellyers' new theme is urban traditional: a comfortable style that has traditional elements, but with a younger flair.
McAloon chooses an earthy color for the walls to tie in with the view outside. She hangs artwork on the fireplace wall to downplay the brick and also adds a larger mantle. Simple curtains soften the windows, as does the furniture placement. Don't be afraid to put furniture in front of glass doors; just be sure to leave enough room to access the doors.
