room reality

06.10.13

ever see a house tour or a room on pinterest and think wtf why can’t i live there? me too. CONSTANTLY. so i’m introducing a new column where i’ll take rooms and break them down in the only way i know how to – the cheapskate way. i’m going to do my best at finding the most equivalent and most affordable elements to the room.

up first – probably one of my favorite rooms ever. this silverlake living room is part of one of my favorite houses designed by commune design.

one i know it’s nowhere as cool and the wrong color, but this chair has that same 70s lounge feel and is only $205!
two rugsville’s beni rug is always on sale, right now the 5×8 is $449
three globe pendant from west elm $99
four a big black and white graphic art print by jesse draxler on society6 $145 for the largest sized framed
five benton brown mahogany end table from overstock $160
six kilim pillows on ebay will are the cheapest i’ve found, these are both under $20 (pillow 1 and pillow 2)
seven urban outfitters cantilever lamp $149
eight jcpenney tie dye throw blanket $45
nine west elm box frame coffee table $349
