Wow. I have to admit that while I liked some of the spaces, this was not my favorite house from the show. I got to see pictures of the backyard area and was totally underwhelmed. Maybe that is why it didn’t make the show. And can we chat About that red room? Oh my. I love red but there is red, and then there is RED. What did you think?
I picked the guest room. It was neutral and soothing and I like the gold mixed with silver.
It wasn’t over styled. It was perfect. The simplicity also makes it an easy room to recreate.
Here are the items I found!
I like the gold pillows on the bed. I like how they matched, but also didn’t. I found several options. The first fabric shown is $49 per yard. The first pillow shown is $25 for the pillow cover. The next pillow is $30 and the last fabric shown is the best deal at $24 per yard. You could get more than one pillow out of that especially if you used a solid (less expensive) fabric on the back. It is also the closest to the pillows in the show.
I couldn’t get a really good look at the tables from the pictures, but I could tell they were black and had an octagon shaped top. I found a few options. The first two are more than I would ever spend on a side table. But these type of tables are expensive and most were in the thousands. The first one shown is $450 and the second one is $815. (gasp!) The one on the bottom has less detail and is not black, but it is only $49. A little spray paint and you are good to go! And if you go the used route and can only find one, no sweat. I am a fan of having the bedside tables be different from each other. Find another unique table for the other side!
I think painting a tree on the wall with gold metallic paint would be fairly simple. I say give it a try. It is only paint! And if you are not happy with your artistic skills, then have a friend come and help. It would save a ton of money to do it yourself rather than hire an artist.
I really liked the rug. I loved that it was gray. Since there are gold elements in the room I think a warm gray would be best. Here are some options. The first one sells for $196 for a 5×7. The second sells for $197 for a 6’7″ x 9′ 6″ size. And the last one sells for $525 for a 5×8 rug.
Four Poster Bed
I love a four poster bed! And I was able to find the exact same bed used in the show. It is the one in the middle and is priced at $1,100 ( on sale down from $1,800). The other two are from Ebay and while they are not king sized, the price is much more affordable. The first one is only $100 and the other is $250. They are both local pick up. But it goes to show that is you shop around and are willing to buy gently used, you can get a much better deal.
Again, I will say that I liked the mix of gold and silver. And I like the size and shape of the lamps. I found a couple that were similar in shape and a couple that were more round. The ones pictured with shades are in the $120-$200 range while the one shown without a shade is only $40.
Do you know how hard it was to find a simple gold chandelier? When you look for a “gold chandelier” you get millions of ornate light fixtures dripping with crystals and beads. I managed to find a couple that were not. The first one pictured is $458 and the second sells for $1,050. Chandeliers are not cheap! If it were me, I would find one on Craigslist that maybe wasn’t gold and spray paint that puppy with gold paint. I have bought simple chandeliers in the past for $15-$25.
Ok, so I am dying to hear what you thought of this week’s house!!! Spill it!
