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.
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.
This exterior loggia is painted in Farrow & Ball's "Pointing," which contrasts brightly with the nearby room. From the buffalo check chair to the busy wallpaper, the red-infused sitting room has a cozy, Colonial feel.
