This bedroom is light and airy with neutral wainscoting and bamboo blinds. A buffalo check armchair adds cottage charm while tying in the green and white wallpaper. Fresh flowers are a lively accent on the windowsill.
This cool living room is a study in chic contrasts. There's a wide range of textures, from the brick fireplace to the shaggy Moroccan rug to the nubby armchair and knotted ottoman. Presiding over the hearth, a buffalo looks dashing surrounded by black and white stripes.
To help freshen up or better blend a fireplace into a room, try painting it. Here, a coat of white and gray paint makes this fireplace an easy companion with the rest of the living room. Vintage armchairs and a cheeky buffalo add eclectic charm.
Wool rugs are easy to clean and have fibers that contain lanolin, a natural stain repellent. They're a smart choice for family rooms, where kids and pets spend most of their time. "This open, second floor media room overlooks the living room below. We needed a strong anchor to be the foundation of the space and to define the character of the room. Merida's classic buffalo check was the perfect solution — boldly inviting guests to gather for conversation, nestle in with a book or cluster for watching movies. The check pattern instantly conveys a sense of warmth and familiarity. Additionally, our clients planned to using this space to watch sporting events — so we needed something to withstand rowdy sports fans and the beautiful, quality wool construction of this rug meant it was the perfect yet practical fit," says the designers at Foley & Cox Interiors.
