Keri Russell's home is relaxed and elegantly understated. She told Elle Decor,
“With so much wood in the equation, it could have turned into a cliché of farmhouse chic,” she says, “so I stuck with a neutral palette, kept it spare, and worked in as many textures as I could without straying into girly territory.”
Her home's simple beauty is a far cry from the modest set of Felicity's dorm room, and the garish mansion in her last project, Running Wilde.
Whites, taupes and the shiny chandelier are a clean contrast with the espresso brown hardwood floor. With all this white, this room must be off-limits for her small child.
The rustic ease of the low maintenance furnishings contrasts nicely with the more high-end chandelier. I have to say, however, I dislike the wire chairs. Wire chairs make pronounced red marks on your legs when wearing shorts, so people either make fun of you, or think you have a weird skin disorder!
The best accessory in this room is the natural light streaming in from the large windows. When a room has windows as nice as these, there's no need to gild the lily with glitter and glamour.
