Steal This Look: A Country House with Selective Color

November 8, 2016

If you’ve been following our love affair with designer Niki Turner, you might remember her French baroque house in Stroud, Gloucestershire, and our Steal This Look on the upstairs bath. Today we’re looking at her low-key living room, which is full of charming moments: colorful velvet pillows, a DIY bookshelf, bountiful baskets, and capacious sofas. Here is a list of ideas for re-creating the look.
