Lucky is the home that calls Nina and Craig Plummer its owners. The two are the founders of
Ingredients LDN, an inspiring online store based in Edingburgh, and the grand apartment they share is a testing ground for the beautiful products sold on their site. Only items that fit their philosophy and aesthetic—the perfect soft palette; natural materials; thoughtful craftsmanship—make it onto their site and into their home.
The result is a wonderfully considered residence. (See the full house tour
here.) We’re particularly taken with Nina and Craig’s muted bedroom. Let’s take a tour, then we’ll show you how to get the look.

Above: The walls are limewashed in a warm neutral. “The process is easy and very forgiving,” Nina told Margot. “The effect achieved depends on the brushstrokes you use: you can get an almost solid color or more of a plaster look.” Above: The couple are drawn to objects that have patina, texture, or both. Above: The ever-versatile OGK Safari Daybed was designed in 1962 by Danish architect Ole Gjerlov-Knudsen when his son was going on a camping trip.
Here’s how to steal this look. Note: Most of the products are sold on Ingredients LDN; we’ve tried to source stateside, though, when possible in order to cut down on shipping costs.
The Soft Stuff Above: The Kapok Mattress Bedroll by Tensira in navy and off-white is $139 at Goodee. (For more about Goodee, see Byron and Dexter Peart’s New Essentials for the Home.) Above: On Nina and Craig’s bed is a Belgian Linen Bedcover in Ecru, currently sold out on their site. It is, however, available in Raw Umber (at right), for £224. Stateside, consider Rough Linen’s Linen Day Blanket, in Natural, for $195. Above: Kirsten Hecktermann’s hand-dyed Velvet Jewel Cushion Covers, a longstanding Remodelista favorite, are available in custom colors for Ingredients LDN; from £68. A wider range of colors is available at Hecktermann’s website. The Furniture Above: Paola Navone’s Ghost Bed comes in several upholstery options (cotton or linen, in various shades) at Gervasoni. For a similar look, consider the Noe Slipcovered Headboard and Skirt from Serena & Lily; from $1,998. Above: These handmade Rustic Antique Wooden Stools are “made with traditional construction methods”; £85 at Home Barn Shop. Above: The OGK Safari Daybed, in Natural, is $690 at Objects by Camilla Vest (see Camilla’s beautiful Scandi-inflected NYC home here.) The Lighting Above: Small porcelain Plain Beaker Lights flank the bed; currently deVOL’s UK site stocks the Small size for £140, but its US site has only the Large size for $260. Above: The cotton Koushi Lamp, handmade in Paris, is currently on sale for $396 at ABC Carpet & Home. (For a DIY version, see DIY: Koushi Lamp by Mark Eden Schooley.) Etc.

Restoration Hardware also carries similar styles; try the Vernon Double Coat Hook in Unlacquered Brass; $23. Above: On the walls is Bauwerk’s lime paint in Stone; from €15.
