Rustic/Chic Design Board...


Hey guys, today I thought I'd share my latest Design Board and the style is Rustic Chic!  I have a client who needed to give their open concept family room/office a whole new look.  These two spaces flow right into one another with no divide, and their existing brown leather sofas needed to stay.  So the first thing I did was use a divider screen to separate the two spaces and define their function. 

Next the orange in the artwork inspired me to use orange pillows and orange curtain panels in the office to visually tie the two spaces together.  A cream mongolian fur pillow and patterned curtain panels add pattern and texture to the space.  And finally the poufs, tribal end table and deer stag head add a rustic element to this space for an overall eclectic look!

Now did I mention these wonderful clients were on a major budget?  Yes indeed, so I swapped out a few higher priced items for more affordable ones.   But first here's a cost breakdown from the original board, Low to the High...

Spice Orange Curtain panels - Kirklands  $34.99
Gatehill Curtain Panels, Taupe - Kirklands  $39.99
Neptune geometric Pillow - The Pillow Collection   $55
Woven Cebu Screen - World Market  $99.99 sale
End Table - World Market  $115.99
Tribal Carved Wood Accent Table - World Market  $119.99
Cal Floor Lamp - Wayfair   $124.99
Coffee Table - World market  $179.99
Ikat Pouff Ottoman - AllModern.com  $179.99
Club Chair - Target   $311.19
Canaan Pearl Table Lamp - Houzz Products   $398 
Chroma Print - Crate & Barrel  $450

Ahhh, so many super affordable finds here and a few higher end ones too!  FYI, World Market is having a huge sale right now so check that out because it's ending soon.  We also switched out this $398 lamp above for an almost identical one from Home Goods for $49...total SCORE!  Even affordable pillows from Pier One were used instead of the ones sourced above.

So that's the scoop on my latest Rustic Chic Design Board.  For me this is the easiest way to get a high end look, for less.  It's all about mixing the High with the Low ;)
