Steal This Look: A Cottage-Style Bunk Room in Highgate, London

Posted by admin on

When designer Mark Lewis remodeled his family home in Highgate, he kitted out his daughter’s cottage-style room with adult-size bunk beds to accommodate visiting grandparents. From the trim and bed frame paint colors to the classic British prints and wooden toys, it’s a look we’d like to replicate. Here are sources for the key elements.
