Steal This Look: An Earthy, Richly Textured Living Area in LA

Timeless and earthy: That’s the sensibility of this 1907 home in LA, redone by Patrick Bernatz Ward. Today we’re taking a closer look at the elements that make up the living area; here’s how to approximate the look at home with a mix of vintage and readily available finds.

(N.B.: For a tour of the full project, see ‘Old California’ in an Updated 1907 Arts & Crafts-Style House in Los Angeles.)
