Earthy Urban Living Room

Host Karen McAloon helps newlywed homeowners find their style. The Design Remix team rejuvenates an outdated, awkward space into an earthy, urban living room.

  • The living room remains a time capsule of 1970s style.
  • The Hellyers' new theme is urban traditional: a comfortable style that has traditional elements, but with a younger flair.
  • In a long room, people often use big pieces of furniture to split the room into separate areas.
  • McAloon places the dining table at an angle in the far corner of the room. This diminishes the long, narrow dimensions of the room and creates a better flow around other furniture.
  • Old, unused garage shelves are salvaged, cut down to size and stained.
  • A repeating pattern in a room ties the design together.
  • McAloon repeats the leaf design on another furnishing.
