Y’all know the drill by now. I pick a designer room and try to recreate the look on a smaller budget. Today we have a toddler room that has been transformed into a modern and inviting but not too girly girl’s room by the talented designer Jill Sorensen for Washington Post’s Housecalls. I love the look of the room but not the price tag; their Splurge version – $2,978 and the Save version -$2,383.
The best part, it costs only $1,291. That is a cost saving of 46% even after keeping the bookcases, pillows, and the Save version rugs the same!
#1 Wa Po version – Grace headboard from Z Gallerie -$450
#2 Mine – Hollie Tufted Headboard $240 from JC Penny
#1 – Madeline chair in orange for $350 from Urban Outfitters
#2 – Leather Monte Carlo Club Chair from Home Decorators Collection for $215
#1 – Mila pendant lamp in turquoise from Posh Living for $340
#2 – Young House Love Metal Strap Drum Pendant from Shades of Light for $99
#1 – Chess Knight lamp by Cyan Lighting for 200 from Amazon
#2 – Horse Chess Piece Table Lamp from Lamps Plus ($80). It needs a quick spray paint job though.
#1 – Turquoise key duvet cover ($185) from Live Like You
#2 – West Elm‘s Shibori Duvet Cover ($59)
Or if you really want the Greek key pattern then you could DIY it on a plain white duvet. I found a good tutorial on this blog.
#1 – Regency curtain panel ($135 each) from Live Like You
#2 – Luxury Linen Curtain Panel from Overstock for $70. You can sew/ fabric glue two strips of black/navy ribbon on either side to customize standard linen curtains.
So what do you say?
