Steal This Look: A Riotously Patterned Bedroom Suite in England by Suzy Hoodless


Steal This Look: A Riotously Patterned Bedroom Suite in England by Suzy Hoodless

Alexa Hotz January 31, 2017

Admired recently at Iscoyd Park, a Georgian house in the English countryside: a madcap mix of color and pattern from interior designer Suzy Hoodless. Among the nine bedrooms in the house is the Day Nursery Room decorated with familiar favorites (rush flooring, Another Country furniture, and a cult wallpaper pattern) in a combination we haven’t seen before. Here’s a look at the room and ideas for how to re-create the look.
