Throughout the home, linen is used to soften hard surfaces. Beautiful Belgian linen covers on the sofas are removable for easy cleaning and the curtains in the main bedroom filter the harsh WA sun. The linen-covered dining chairs are a laidback yet sophisticated contrast to the rustic dining table, and Michelle has draped linen throws in different areas of the home for comfort and an extra layer of unstructured softness.
