THE LOOK FOR LESS





My friend texted me yesterday afternoon and asked me to come to the 7:00 AM Soul Cycle class.

Huh?  Why can't I go at a reasonable hour?

"Because Lorenzo is teaching and I love him"

Key word here.....you love him.  But whatever...all I need is a little peer pressure......

So I went and the AC was broken and y'all....I could not even breath.....they came in to the class after about 20 min passing out cold water [I guess they were worried].

My fingers are still wrinkled while I type this:)

OK....you guys know I am all about layering.  I try to be a minimalist but I walk that fine line!

Mark Sikes is probably one of the best.  His rooms feel lived in....collected and perfectly layered.  Most of us know him for his use of blue and he may be responsible for bringing that design trend back in a huge way!

BUT....he also does neutrals to perfection.


This desk situation above makes me giddy.

This might have been the inspiration for my master bedroom.....just saying.




Convinced?

I also found this bedroom and decided to recreate the "look for less"....

You're welcome.


First of all I found this bed!


Mark always adds some classic tradition to a room.....and makes black and brown co-exist so peacefully.



If you notice in the picture the curtains are a deep burgundy red floral!

So I went there:)



Thoughts?  It's very layered....not so matchy and if anyone actually puts this room together please send me the picture:)

**I fixed those 2 links....let me know if there are any more!

OK.....so Thursday I finally have a little install and hopefully will have some pictures on Friday.  I feel like it's been ages since I showed some of my own work!

Crikey.

The link for the bedside table is not working. But I love the items you’ve selected to recreate that fabulous bedroom.

That bed is a find! The link did not work for me. Can't wait to see your latest work!

Love this post and how you did a room with sources for all of us. I know that takes a lot of work and sourcing so thank you!! Looking forward to seeing your latest install, always exciting!!

Generally I tend to prefer more color in a room but maybe that's because I've seen too many examples of neutral rooms where accessories were not well curated, and too cutesy. You, on the other hand,🙂, got this! Love these choices.
