Steal This Look: Southwest Tablescape

Issue 7 · Winter in the Desert · February 14, 2012

Recreate the look of this calm, austere dining room, inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe's life and art.

Styled by Ruth Cousineau and photographed by Mikkel Vang for Gourmet (we're still in mourning), the room features rough-hewn turquoise accents, a bone-white cow hide, and handmade ceramics.
