This is a great traditional scheme with the off whites, footstool and tartan accessories. I LOVE the footstool idea Fran, think you'd get a lot of use out of it and you could choose a great plaid fabric
I love EVERYTHING about this room from the lamp that reminds me of my daddy's office to the comfy cognac leather couch, to the awesome trunk as coffee table and storage and the freakin' amazing world map wallpaper!
Use an old steamer trunk as a coffee table! Sometimes you must improvise in order to obtain the desired result. If you don’t have a proper table for this kind of interior design, use a steamer trunk or any other suitcase to fill the empty space.
