a little look for less for you - Chatelaine Sept 2011 Bedroom Makeover

I love Chatelaine magazine. I find it is the perfect blend of fashion, home, food, health and current events.

This month's issue features a blue bedroom with hits of brass and gold that I love but the price tag is a little steep (hello, $700 for a table lamp from Elte!) which may not be achievable for everyone. So, I thought I would scout some similar pieces to help achieve the same look but for less.

The photos of the finished room are not yet up on but I found these on who is the designer (check out her site!)

the semi-finished room:

The fabric palette and paint (Down Pour Blue from Benjamin Moore)

My web finds for the look for less!

Roundabout Rug from CB2 (which at $699 is half the price of the Madeline Weinrib)

Table lamp from - a steal at $90 (compared to $575)

Second table lamp Hampton Bay "Edward Collection" from The Home Depot $129 (compared to $665)

"World Imports" hanging fixture from The Home Depot $160 (compared to $889)


Orange lacquer tray from West Elm $30
Indira bedspread from IKEA $30
Wall Art from $80 (compared to $1250)

Throw cushion from IKEA about $7

With a little research, you can achieve just about any look at any price point.
