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

April 9, 2019

At Iscoyd Park, a Georgian house in the English countryside, interior designer Suzy Hoodless presents a madcap mix of color and pattern. 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.

 The Day Nursery room has a mix of English craft pieces.
