Room Recipe

I've gotten lots of questions about where some of our furniture/decor comes from so I thought it might help if I break it down, starting with the master bedroom. Exact items that are still available for purchase are linked below...keep in mind that I got every single thing in this room on sale, so it pays to be patient.
1. Bed - Z Gallerie - Victoria Sleigh Bed
2. Table lamps - Restoration Hardware - Crystal Banister Lamps
3. Nightstands - Bombay Company
4. Mirrors - Ballard Designs
5. Linens - Restoration Hardware - Italian Satin Stitch Bedding
6. Bench - Ballard Designs - Simone Bench
7. Rug - Jonathan Adler
8. Vanity Mirror - Wisteria - Embossed Bone Flower Mirror
9. Floor lamp - Local store
9. Chandelier - antique
10. Vanity and Chest - antique

Some of our stuff is no longer available or is an antique/hand-me-down so I've listed budget-friendly substitution ideas as well. I went as cheap as possible, because I know that most budgets are super tight. Just keep in mind that I'm not vouching for the quality. 

I'm a big believer in high-low, however, there are certain pieces that I'm willing to pay more for. In this room, those items included the bed, crystal lamps, and linens. After I pulled the trigger on those, I filled in the gaps with cheaper finds. On bargain items, I like to see/touch before purchasing or make sure that returning the item is an easy option (for example, Target stores accept returns). The last thing you want, is to receive something that looks cheap and it ends up being too expensive to ship back. This factor is what makes thrifting/antiquing worth it...plus you can usually bargain with sellers.



If you're over the mirrored furniture thing, this would be a great alternative!
Pier 1 - Wycliff Chest

Crystal Lamps

Ballard Designs - Kenton Chain Link Mirror
(Spray paint ivory, if you don't like the mixed metals look)

Overstock.com - Hotel Collection
I really like the platinum color or black.


If you want more flexibility with the rug options, go with a solid instead of a stripe
The Company Store - Tufted Skirted Storage Bench

West Elm - Circles Rug (this one could go with the striped bench)

Vanity Mirror
Ballard Designs - D'Orsay Mirror

Overstock.com - Maria Theresa Chandelier

Floor Lamp
Target - Floor Lamp

  6. Thanks so much for sharing the room sources with us!

  7. i just love this room! when you told me your paint color (dawn, it's slate from restoration hardware) i showed this room to my husband. he was sold... we painted our family room/kitchen slate and love it! i was concerned about doing a slate grey in seattle, but it's just beautiful. pam

  8. You have a flair for pulling things together. It always works out better to use numerous resources so you don't get that cookie cutter look.
    I am crazy for that striped chest from Pier 1 but I paint furniture so I will probably make my own version. Still that piece is so inspiring it will definitely be my jumping off point.

  9. I love you blog and am so inspired by your bedroom! I really appreciate you giving "bargain" options, too. Awesome job!

  10. Only in my wildest dreams, could I ever have a bedroom like that! I'm in love!!! So classy and beautiful. You have great tastes!

  11. My friend just led me to your blog to get some ideas for my new home!! Your home is amazing!!! Will you tell me the name of the paint color in your bedroom and dining room??

  12. Joy, thanks for the sweet words! The paint in the bedroom is Slate by Restoration Hardware...the dining room is Fashion Gray by Behr.

  13. What size is the rug in your bedroom? We have a queen and I wasn't sure what size to get. You home is amazing!

  14. Anon - the rug is an 8x10'. When I bought it, I was told that it was a 9x12' (the size I preferred) but the smaller size works well too. We have a queen in our guest room and it's a 5.5x8'.
