You know what gets me all tingly? When I find a bargain! Especially if it winds up being a design dupe to boot. And today I’ve got a good one; my Overdyed Rug. Read how some savvy shopping or even DIYing can get you a statement rug to dye for.
I get so many compliments on the floor lamp in my living room. One of the biggest compliments I get is whenever I see my lamp in designs featured in magazines or on design shows. I love it too! I actually put my own personal stamp on my lamp when I decided the lamp needed a colored shade. Instead of painting the lampshade, I wrapped it with ribbon. A ribbon wrapped lampshade is a simple option for those plain ole white shades. It also allowed me to inject color into the room. This one was easy guys. You can do this one in an afternoon.
Some time ago I was visiting my sister’s house and noticed that she had what I would call a statement chair in her living room. The chair was not a match to any of the other furnishings in the room. It stood on its own as a featured piece in the room. I loved how it seemed to be the star of her well-designed room. This is how I recreated that effect in my own home. This L/H is all about The Statement Chair.
Painted Custom Lampshade
I love transforming things. Most of the pieces I truly love I have given a new life my giving them a custom touch of my own. The lamp in my living room is just one of those pieces. Check out how I took my lamp to a whole new level with a super easy custom lampshade DIY project you can do in an afternoon.
Whenever people visit they always ask me where I bought my furniture and home accessories. So today I wanted to share some of my finds with you guys! I decided to start a post series called Shop My Style where I will go through a room in my home and round up pieces that will help you achieve the look. One of my favorite spaces in my home is my living room. I love it! I just love being in there. So why not start there? This room is really close to my heart because I curated most of the items by savvy shopping. It is where I spend the evenings with my family and entertain family & friends. I truly love every piece in that room. Some things are vintage and/or thrift store finds … but I think I’ve found some design dupes that are pretty close and will work just as well in your own home!
