For some reason I have the decorating bug lately and I’m currently trying to revamp our home office. I’m really not so good at the decorating thing but I’d like to be! I had fun with the first Get The Look featuring a stunning living room by designer Sarah Richardson. I found it incredibly fun to source items that would have a similar feel but at a fraction of the cost.

In this Get The Look, I was able to find some great pieces (at great prices) that really resemble this casual dining room originally spotted in Casa Magazine via Steph Modo. The item I’m least satisfied with are the candelabras but I’m sure a little hunting at a local thrift shop might be the right place to shop for those. Total cost: $1724.77 Not too bad for a table for eight including table, chairs and art work!

1. Vaughn Apartment Sofa $1399 / 2. Square Pillow Cover $75 / 3. Boudoir Pillow Cover $79 / 4. Parsons End Table $199 /5. Karsen Club Chair $399 / 6. Lumi Candleholders $1.95-3.95 / 7.

I spotted this pretty living room on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to try to create a similar look on a budget. Originally created by designer Sarah Richardson for her own home, it’s a stunning space with such a calm and serene feel. I wanted to capture the subtle differences in tone but bring out the pops of pink, white and light blue. I think the stripped footstools really tie the space together but sadly I wasn’t able to find any. The French Stripe Stools from Pottery Barn come close but I think the Raspberry Chevron pillows help. What do you think?!
