Why We Love It

Like an oil painting, each layer of color adds rich texture and depth to this Cottage Living room. A simple piece of furniture becomes a bold display for an eclectic collection.

Why It Works

With the mirror above the antique buffet as a focal point, all the other accents add to the rich composite of this look. The white side lamps flanking the buffet bring contrast to the scene.

Steal This Look

It is the quilted silk panel hung from a curtain rod that really sets this room apart. The panel adds interest, color, and texture to what was a simple (and a little boring) white wall.

When setting up a display like this one, think of it as a way to show off a few of your most fascinating treasures. Add what you desire, then step back and remove one or two things to achieve a restrained and edited look.
