Steal This Look: Moody Monochrome in the Scottish Highlands

January 22, 2019

The Killiehuntly Farmhouse is an estate in the Scottish Highlands restored by and designed by owner Anne Storm Pedersen as luxury vacation lodging. One of the Killiehuntly guest rooms, the Birch room, features a dozen design details to steal including a coal-colored jute rug and a monochromatic Shaker peg rail. Here are the key elements to re-create the look.

The Birch room is designed in layers of cool color. Photograph by Martin Kaufmann from In Scotland, A Luxe Nature Retreat from a Danish Billionaire.
