In the October 2010 issue of Vogue, I came across a romantic write-up about the new home of Isabelle Townsend (former model for Ralph Lauren) and her husband Patrick DeedesVincke. The cottage, Le Moulin de la Tuilerie in France, was a former weekend home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. I’ve featured the living room from the story and how to get the look below.

The Living Room.

The glossy red cabinet adds the perfect juxtaposition to the natural feel of this room. It’s the perfect balance of color in my opinion, and you can get a similar version at Ikea for $99. Great for storage too:

Ikea PS Cabinet, $99

A rug from West Elm, very similar to the one pictured above increases coziness:

Jute Boucle Rug, $19.99-$159

And finally, the arc lamp modestly ties the room together without taking attention away from the decor. It reminds me of this lamp from IKEA:

Regolit Bow Floor Lamp, $49.99

A fuzzy sheepskin throw makes a casual butterfly chair luxurious and anything but cheap:

Buttefly Chair from, $64.95

Ikea Rens Sheepskin $24.99

For the coffee table, try putting two matching end tables side by side, or a simple elegant table that matches the theme:

Ikea PS Bruse Coffee Table, $149

Thanks for reading, stay tuned for my coverage of the other rooms!

You know, and carbon monoxide from the all wholesale restaurant chairs weather selections that are unhealthy to breathe.
We definitely got to go with wicker plastic furniture, because some people say that this low-cost model replaces
the weapon’s flaws: notably its rapid consumption of ammunition.
Furniture adds spice to the high quality furniture.
Or you can buy, rather it is best suited for moisture prone areas like a place
near swimming pool.
