One of my favourite rooms was featured in Elle Decor’s spread on Keri Russell’s home:
Isn’t it great? Very laid-back and natural but elegant too. And lots of neutrals, which is carried through the rest of the home:
So I was looking at this room tonight and thinking that (aside from the incredible fireplace, windows and cornices), it wouldn’t be too hard to re-create, or at least borrow from..here it is again:
If I were ‘borrowing’ this look for myself I probably wouldn’t do the shaggy flokati rug, they are cosy to walk and lie on but there’s something about them I don’t love. I think it’s mainly the idea of not being able to vacuum out all the unseen dust and dirt – yes, I can be a little obsessive in this area! So, I’d probably replace it with this from Madeline Weinrib:
or maybe one of my old favourites:
As for the chairs, there are a million gorgeous natural linen armchairs out there! I like this one because of the slipcovers (cleaning again!).
But this one is good too for a slightly more structured, masculine look:Then, the buttoned ottoman:
For the side table I’d either use this sleeker version of the timber box:
Or one of my favourite tables, incorporating a little rusticity, a little masculinity, a little geometry, and lots of airiness.
I’d have to look harder to find the light in the original room, but this is a pretty good substitute (we used it in a client’s house and it’s even better in person- real ‘wow’ factor!):
Then a gold round mirror for above the fireplace (again, a million options!):
Finally, there’s the accessories: the potted tree, the flowers, books, fan coral and fur throw. All the fun stuff!
