Tailored Living Room

Mix DIY pieces with investment furniture for a crisply edited space.

A durable, budget-friendly alternative to hardwood, slate-look ceramic tiles create visual flow throughout this house. The living room's modern aesthetic is offset by a classic 40-year-old Heriz wool rug. The homeowner had the rug's border trimmed for a contemporary look.
