The Look For Less: Living Etc. Bedroom

31 Dec

If you’re a fan of the bedroom above featured in Living Etc. magazine, I can show you how to recreate it for less than $700. Just pick up the items below.

Wood Grain Contact Paper, $6. Don’t have a wood wall? No worries, simply put contact paper over your existing wall. It provides a cheap, removable, easy to apply solution. It’s particularly handy if you’re a renter.

Trondheim Bed (Full), IKEA $279

Koldby Cowhide Rug, IKEA $199

Odda Nightstand, IKEA $49

BasiskĀ  Lamp, IKEA $20. (I personally would paint the base of this lamp white, but of course that’s up to you)

Deer Antlers, Ebay $22

Sheepskin Steel Grey Pillow, Room and Board $168 (for 2). A little pricey, but these pillows add lots of texture.

Velvet Pillow, CB2 $50 (for 2, on sale). A cheaper alternative to the pillow above.

White Bedding (Full/Queen), Target $20

Antique Wood Mirror, Ebay $49.00

GRAND TOTAL $674 (OR $792 IF YOU CHOOSE THE MORE EXPENSIVE PILLOWS).

Wallpaper Headboard

Martha Stewart shows how to use wallpaper to create a headboard. Cute AND cheap!

Urban Outfitters Bedding

16 Dec

Often thought of as a teeny-bopper store, Urban Outfitters offers duvets that can be well integrated into a grown-up bedroom. Priced at less than $50 here are two of my favorites:

Bird Cage Duvet, $45

Laerke Duvet, $40
