A glass wall on the entire back side lends to the abundance of natural light. "We wanted the outside to come in and expand the townhouse," says Mellett.
The parlor den is the main space where the family gathers together. The setup is chic and minimal, and Mellett was careful to use fabrics that are durable and easy to clean.

"We created zones that are so comfortable that the family will just naturally want to stay there," he says. "We don't want them to feel like they're necessarily a kids area. In fact, the adults love to be in the kids' areas too!"

The master suite was designed as a getaway for the busy parents. "We wanted to create an urban spa on the master floor," says Mellett. "A place where the parents can retreat to." Upholstered walls and textiles in a range of textures all combine in a soothing and neutral space.
