Room Crush

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I am already contemplating my Christmas decor and and was web surfing when I came across a room that I am totally crushing on. It is Chinoiserie inspired and has the most phenomenal daybed that would make anyone swoon. I decided to see if it could be somewhat recreated with a more reasonable budget in mind. Here is what I came up with! What room are you crushing one these days and can it be recreated?

House Beautiful

The original paper is De Gournay but Paul Montgomery has a gorgeous interpretation!

No onto the bed which is no easy copy but one can use a bit of good black gloss pain and some gold liquid leaf and be on their way to a lovely repro!

The most expensive of the bunch but still a fraction of the original bed

Black paint and gold trim and you are on your way to one sharp bed!

Can you imagine this beauty ebonized with gold detail!
Restoration Hardware Child!

This gorgeous simple bed would add  a modern clean feel to that dream space!

This is the exact chair in the image form HB and it's also from RH!

If you prefer a more clean lined chair this could fit the bill!

Can always count on West Elm for reasonable modern accents!

Amazon pulls through for fun pieces too!

West Elm's version of the Martini Table!

The original table from Jonathan Adler!

Wayfair sisal!

Gold striped bedding at PB Teen!

Lovely gold silk pillows from Etsy- Creative Touch Decor

Fun Gold Tortoise shell lamps!

How about this one from Wayfair!

Finally you need a great Hollywood Regency book shelf!

Finish the room off with some great books and white finger jars and you have  a winner my friend!
Remember if you cannot find all white jars you can always spray paint them white gloss.
Have a great week!
