Steal This Look: A Clean, Well-Lighted Study by Designer C.S. Valentin

September 17, 2019

Not only is A Colonial House in Bellport with Uncommon Style from French Designer C. S. Valentin one of my favorite house tours ever on Remodelista, but it also features one of my favorite room images ever. The picture showcases the cozy study on the second floor of his client’s classic New England house. With its soft light, quiet hues, and white walls (unadorned save a framed drawing by a child), the room is a palette cleanser, a refined and serene home office perfect for work, study—and the occasional nap.

Here’s how to steal the look.
