Look for Less: Domino Favorites
The 28th of January marks the one year anniversary of our beloved Domino being snatched from our hands! Can ya tell I’m still a little bitter? In order to keep Domino’s memory alive I thought it would be fun to showcase one of my favorite rooms every day this week with a little recap on how you can get the look for less in your own home!
Hands down all time favorite room to be featured in Domino is:
I bow down to Miles Redd.
Seriously the room is a perfect mix of traditional, modern, glam and a bit of feminine touches. Of course with all those perfect touches comes $$$$ dollar signs so let’s try to get it on a $ budget.
For the bed while Anthropologie has an amazing look alike it is still in the $1,000 + range so I went with another option.
Another option would be to go with this designer favorite from IKEA, which I would also spraypaint:
Now what really makes the room above is the wallpaper. It is by De Gournay and hand painted, which makes it way over are $ budget.
One option would be to use some less expensive wallpaper such as this, which comes in at $43 per double roll:
An even more budget friendly option can be seen here.
If you are a renter and you are not allowed to paper your walls another option is to use fabric. If you apply fabric onto the walls with liquid starch it be removed later on with water and leave the walls in perfect condition! DIY instructions found here. (I’m going to be doing this in a client’s home in the coming weeks and I’ll be sure to take pictures and make my own DIY post so stay tuned for that!)
My favorite fabric pick was this:
Ok so yes it’s not birds, but I think it gives the same effect as the look we are trying to capture with the green foliage and then pops of color with the flowers and butterflies.
Next up is bedding: For only $47.99 I think it’s pretty close to our inspiration pic!
End stools by bed: IKEA to the rescue! Due to the surface of IKEA products I recommend a light sanding, primer, sanding again and then spray paint with the color of your choice!
DIY instructions available here.
Lamps: I would hit your local TJ MAXX, Marshalls or Home Goods to find something Domino worthy. On recent trip there I spotted these for only $40:
Window Treatments: For budget projects I always check out JC PENNEY's first. They have a lot of great price friendly pieces that are still lined and good quality. It’s a win/win.
Voila we are all done! Depending what what wallpaper or fabric you use for the walls I would vary my choice of color for the lamps and end tables.
