Steal This Look: A Modern Farmhouse Dining Room in France

An 18th-century farmhouse in Les Baux de Provence, France, is thoughtfully restored and detailed by Anki Linde and Pierre Saalburg of LSL Architects. The dining room is a palette of plaster and concrete with eclectic, almost gallery-like decor: Picture rails and ledges surround the perimeter and rattan chairs meet LED lighting. Here is our list of similar resources to re-create the look.
