Let’s shop today! I love the room you all chose to shop. Everything about it is a juxtaposition in design. It is warm and light, oversized and human scale, refined and rustic all at the same time. I love the compositions of a room designed by Beth Webb.
Let’s Talk About The Room
Before we shop the room, let’s talk a little a bit about the room, because you need to have an idea about why a room works and what it is you like about a room before you shop. Especially a high end room, like this one.
First, what style would you say this room is? Rustic, Mediterranean, Shabby Chic? You would all be right, but it is more than that. Each piece of this room is style of its own, but blending them together creates an experience that you can only feel in this space.
The mixing of all the textures is what makes this neutral room work so well. You have linen, wicker, limestone and travertine, rustic woods, wrought iron, porcelain, natural grass rug, …. the list goes on. Each piece on its own is pretty, but put together, they create an experience that is truly authentic.
Finaly, one thing to keep in mind when attempting to replicate a look:
- Unless you try to replicate a room immediately after it is designed, you will not be able to find same pieces available (and if it high end, odds are many pieces may be custom and one-of-a kind). You want to focus on the overall feel of the room and basic style and texture of each piece.
- The people who live in the room you are trying to replicate are individual and unique, and the space was designed just for them. You are not them. So it is the inspiration, the feeling, the experience you are drawn to. But keep in mind that you want your room to be a reflection of who you are, not a nameless, faceless person in a magazine.
Let’s Go Shopping
So, let’s get started sourcing the furnishings. 🙂 I focused on the main pieces that you could see fully and accessories that I felt were most important to the space.
Sofa and Chair
It is important that the frame for the sofa is also offered in a chair. I could not find a similar stripe to the chair fabric. In cases like that, you would want to stay with the same white fabric as the sofa or choose a vendor that offers a COM (customer’s own material) option. I selected this fabric for the following sofa and chair through Perigold.
Perigold is an online vendor you can shop your own. Another option for the sofa and chair is a To the Trade vendor that could be a less expensive option. Many people have the misconception that To the Trade vendors are more expensive, but that is not always the case, unless you are shopping your least expensive consumer brands like IKEA, etc. This particular vendor is one we love – Gabby. They also have a wide stripe in gray and white that is similar to the one in the inspiration room.
We could not find the one in the room. When that happens, you want to focus on the important elements of the piece you are looking for. In this instance, the two-tone wood, 2 long doors, and carving is the focus. This armoire from Hooker furniture does a good job of replicating the rustic ones in the room.
Don’t you love the texture of the limestone on the top of the coffee table – both rustic and refined at the same time.
An exact mirror also could not be found. This one has the same curvilinear design with light, distressed woodtones; however, it is horizontal instead of vertical.
The main accessories to look for in this room are the the blue and white vases on the coffee table, the large turned lamps, and the finials on the mantle:
