If you like patterns, this bedroom has them in spades. It's not too crazy however, with its minimal color palette and classic decor. Are you ready for the cost breakdown of this design, and — more importantly — its decor doppleganger? Of course you are.
If you're in a part of the country currently in the midst of a heat wave, I really hope you're reading this while experiencing some wonderfully chilly air conditioning. The sky high temps have me craving cool things, so I rounded up some icy blue finds for the home, all under $50.
Gingham fabric has a long history, but came to be especially associated with Americana in the 1930s and 40s. It has always been a simple fabric for simple people and is most readily associated with children (especially, of course, Dorothy). Can gingham compete in the decor arena with popular patterns like Ikat and chevron? Time will tell, but for now here are ten stylish, red, white and blue items in that old familiar striped check.
You can technically meditate anywhere. I've meditated on my sofa, in my bed, in the conference room at the office, even on a city bus. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't like a cozy corner dedicated to my daily practice. Here's what my space for mental escape would include.
I love pink, and I'm not afraid to say it. But when it comes to interiors, pink can be more than a little intimidating. How do you incorporate it into your home without said home looking like a Barbie dream house? Apartment Therapy has some ideas.
The branch-shaped legs of the Scrub table would make it the perfect anchor piece for a natural dining space. However, the price may not be rooted in everyone's reality. This collectible inspired a complete Organic Modern dining room, with money to spare towards a dinner party for 8!
I fell hard for the Grissini bench while researching a recent Shop the Room post. Since DWR's prices aren't always within reach, I used the sleek chrome and leather collectible as a jumping-off point for a Dramatic Modern boudoir, complete with a similar bench and chic accessories. What do you think?
As I mentioned in my first Design Diary post, my best friend
Eleni is moving to from Boston to New York City. She's secured an apartment, but
we have yet to see it in person. We have, however, seen a few pictures of the
space, which provide just enough information to get my design wheels turning...
I drool over high-end designer pieces as much as the next gal, but often their prices are more than what I could use to put together an entire room. The black marble and graphic silver base of this coffee table inspired a bold living area full of pattern and texture which includes a similar table and tallies up at a price almost equal to the collectible. Which would you rather have, the collectible, or the complete room?
