Looks & Feels Like Real Wood - Thibaut Eastwood


Walking into Scott Cooke's Gentleman's Retreat in the DC Design House for the first time had me reaching out to touch the walls, certain he had clad them in wood.  After touching them I was still surprised to be told it wasn't wood but Thibault Eastwood - a vinyl, embossed wall covering.  It looks and feel that real.

The wall covering creates a rich backdrop for Scott's serene and tailored design.  Thibaut Eastwood also happens to be scrubbable which means it can serve heavy duty in in mud rooms, foyers, family rooms, vacation cottages, etc. If you're looking for a paneled look and and real wood isn't the right choice, be sure to check it out.


Now back to this beautiful room inspired by Bill Blass. Love the grouping of photographs near the bed and the abstract prints above the bureau.




The window pane plaid and the barley twist legs on the ottomans give it a bit of a Scottish vibe for me - or maybe that's because I've been binge watching Outlander these last few weeks.


The coverlet has a cut-out for a tailored look on the antique poster bed.

A DEER, Sweet Nursery - DC Design House

Nancy Twomey of Finnian's Moon Interiors has created beautiful children's rooms for a number of DC Design Houses over the years and this year's nursery is my absolute favorite.   The vision was a modernity meets Swedish country and the barely blue textured walloper and blush pink ceilings create a restful haven that is stylish and endeering at the same time :)  The modern crib is watched over by a baby fawn you just can't help but fall in love with.   (First three images provided by Finnian's Moon Interiors, photography by Angie Seckinger, copyright 2015)




So nice to see a honey-toned wood bureau - goes beautifully with the room's color scheme.


Here's a view from the nursery into the adjoining pink bathroom and to the walk-in closet beyond.
