Bring Nature In

Like the garden clippings that fill this Connecticut cottage, the iron bed was plucked from nature; it was a lucky roadside find. The bed, along with the white walls and neutral sisal carpet, allows collectibles and antiques—old books, flea market finds, and an antique glass cabinet from a dentist's office—to coexist. And to add a few more pops of nature, the owner display dried thistles in old apothecary bottles and a long row of succulents in a vintage gutter.
