Nordic-Style Living Room

Thrifty finds are given new life.

Cottage owners Juli Daoust and John Baker of Mjölk found the sconces mounted on either side of the fireplace in the cottage's boathouse. Originally faux brass with white candles, they sprayed them matte black and added new bulbs. They left the stonework untouched to provide contrast in the mainly white space. The enamel bucket and teak tripod side table came with the cottage.
