This might be one of my favorite outfits ever. I don’t know this girl, but I want to be her. The daring mix of prep with modern, casual with dressy and pattern on pattern have me sorting through my own closet to see if I can even come close. The room was equally fun to put together and would be a great way to incorporate some existing pieces, hand me downs or antiques in a fresh, youthful setting. So on to it:
1. Crystorama Light Athena Chandelier, Garbe’s Tulsa 2. Coral Trellis Pillow, Nenavon on Etsy 3. Rust Ruffles Pillow, Pier 1 4. Manchester Chaise, Ballard Designs 5. Marble Egg in Brass Cradle, RhettDidntGiveADamn on Etsy 6. Safavieh Soho Rug, amazon.com 7. Lucrin Tan Leather Basket, amazon.com 8. Antique Glass and Brass Side Table, John Salibello.
The chaise is a standard piece with customizable fabric…there were several stripes to choose from within this manufacturer’s selection, or you could easily re-create something like this by re-upholstering an existing piece. The rug is a standout – a cowhide could also be a fun look, if you’re into that sort of thing. However, here the modern abstract balances out some of the more traditional pieces in the space. Like the necklace in the outfit, the chandelier adds just the right girly touch to the room, as do the coral pillows (as well as adding a bright pop of color). The antique table and egg are delicate but classic, adding a bit of masculinity to the room, as does the leather magazine tote – a nice counterpoint to the swirls of the chandelier.
