The body of this armchair is amber cowhide; the seat and pillow are a terracotta twill by Ralph Lauren. The closet door on the back wall was designed to resemble other antique Spanish doors found throughout the home.
No need to use matchy-matchy dishware at your holiday open house; an assortment of tartans and plaids mixed with neutrals adds to the party's cozy charm. Here, Ralph Lauren salad plates are paired with mint-and-gold dessert plates.
A warm wood fireplace with green tile surround makes a dramatic statement in this traditional living room. Comfortable neutral furniture paired with classic wood coffee tables, striped throw pillow and knot-patterned curtains evokes the Ralph Lauren-inspired look the homeowners wanted.
Designer Michael Habachy topped a coffee table purchased at a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams warehouse sale with a gold-studded tray by L'Objet and coffee table book, magnified by a Ralph Lauren crystal lens. Habachy used these items in a condo at The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta.

In the redesign of this 3000-square foot family home, the main living areas were connected in an open concept layout, including the removal of ornate molding and built-in shelving units. Nature-inspired furnishings by Baker, Holly Hunt, Ralph Lauren Home and Bernhardt set a relaxing tone in the new spaces.
Designer Susan Brunstrum carefully followed her client's wishes when furnishing this two-story great room that features a wall of windows and an expansive brick fireplace. She employed a Ralph Lauren-type approach to selecting the dark brown leather sectional, beige club chair and upholstered ottoman that serves as a coffee table for the room. Especially fetching: the beach scene over the fireplace and the latticed piece behind it.
In Chris' bedroom, a mix of high and low created his designer bed ensemble. A custom bed upholstered in automotive vinyl was the area's biggest purchase; however, deceptively budget-friendly purchases were made for the remainder of the space. The demilune-shaped chests came from ZGallerie for $600 each, and not only do they add an elegant touch, they offer concealed storage. Table lamps atop the chests were found at a flea market and updated with red paint and new metallic drum shades. While Ralph Lauren bedding in a classic paisley print was a splurge, custom pillows made from $6.99 per yard IKEA tartan fabric kept the budget in check. To allow Chris to easily change up the looks of his bedding, the backs of each pillow were covered in a nautical print from Duralee.
