Elegant Country House Living Room
Rustic meets modern in this spectacular upscale home.
Designer and shop owner Viki Mansell put her sophisticated taste and gift for mixing eras to good use when decorating her stunning country cottage. In what Viki calls the "winter" living area, Ultrasuede-covered tuxedo sofas invite people to gather. The stripped-pine fireplace and early-19th-century armoire are traditional elements. Uplights sitting on the floor beside the fireplace cast an unobstrusive glow. Mounted animal horns and antlers from North America and Africa, cowhide carpets and faux-fur throws also add to the cosiness.
