Steal This Look: A Darkly-Designed Dining Room with Antique Charm

October 26, 2021

When Annie first wrote about the neo-Gothic renovation of a historic house in Omaha, Nebraska, she noted the way in which the Brooklyn-based firm, Ridge House, was able to at once preserve and modernize the space. White walls? Nope. Bright brass fixtures? Not even close. While bucking all design trends du jour, Ridge House layered shades of gray and dark wood with original fixtures and antique furniture. Here we detail their exact sources, where applicable, and a few of our own look-alikes for a similar effect overall.
