Have you ever seen a photo of a room and wished that you could crawl into the pages and live in it? We all want our homes to look and feel luxurious, like they do in magazines and on TV. But who has a small fortune to put rooms like that together?
Designing a beautiful room doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. And I love to figure out ways to create a FAB (Functional, Affordable and Beautiful) look like those of celebrities.
Check out the photos below. The room on the left belongs to an actor. It looks like a really cozy place to spend some time. I love the rustic, yet high-end touches. Just for the fun of it, I've put together a more affordable version of the room that mixes both rural and metropolitan styles.
A comfy couch detailed with upholstery tacks and a soft leather chair make up the main seating areas. Matching footstools in rust-orange and gold add a pop of color and extra seating for guests. A distressed table adds a casual touch and some warmth to the space and is adorned with a simple green-hued pottery vase. Complementary throw pillows in more formal patterns add a touch of chic elegance. Lighting is provided by a simple wrought iron floor lamp with a cream-colored shade. (It certainly wouldn't be the only source of lighting in the room.) And a great print of a horse keeps the room from becoming too formal and it adds more of the warm rust and gold colors.
So if you need a change, but are not sure how to put together an affordable look–or just need some help sourcing item–give me a jingle. It's what I love to do!
