Issue 26 · Farmhouse Style · November 17, 2009

We like the play of black and white elements and the contrasting textures in this graphic Scandinavian dining room by Australian stylist Deborah Mclean of Busy Being Fabulous (originally spotted on Emmas Designblogg). Recreate the look with the following elements:


Saucer Lamp at Remodelista

Cowhide rug at Remodelista

Additionally, there is none of the smell from tanning solutions so often present with other cowhides." The Brazilian Black Cowhide Rug from L'aviva Home is approximately 7 feet by 7.5 feet and is $545.
