The urban cowboy who isn't afraid to wear a winter white jean would enjoy this casual living room. The oversized painting and coffee table accents gives clues to his Southwestern roots.
Scottish roots are deeply planted in this Tudor-style cottage. The tartan plaid upholstered dining room chairs with leather-bound seats introduce a pleasant juxtaposition to the English country serving ware.
