Look For Less! Vol. VI - Blue And White Table Lamp

Design Inspiration, My HomeSarice GutmanComment

Today's Look For Less post may just be the best one yet!  I discovered it in a happy accident and I am excited to share my find with you today.  As you know, I've been working on my nursery design, and I had been searching for a petite blue and white table lamp to sit next to the nursery glider chair.  Can't wait to show you what I found!

Blue and white lamps look so clean and crisp in a space! I knew that was the look I wanted to obtain in the nursery (p.s. design reveal NEXT WEEK!!).  See what I mean?!  Blue and white can be integrated anywhere.  And I mean anywhere.

In my search for a petite blue and white table lamp, I knew I wanted something 20 inches or less.  When I came across this winner from Ballard Designs, I knew it was perfect!

Look For Less! Vol. V - Oversized Round Mirror

Design Tips, Design InspirationSarice GutmanComment

Lets ring in February with a totally fab Look for Less post!  This design by Amber Interiors is a super popular one all over the internet.  I have been coming across it more often recently, and I can't get enough of the beautiful, gold-rimmed oversized mirror.  That mirror is truly spectacular!  Lets get the look for less!

As you can see, this round oversized mirror can truly add a finishing touch to a space.  The large size is perfect for an entryway, dining room, or any space that requires a statement.  Such a large mirror would also be great at reflecting some natural light into an otherwise darker room.  Amber Interiors created a simple, yet stylish, entryway using this mirror.

Look For Less! Vol. IV - Buffalo Check Pillow

Design InspirationSarice GutmanComment

Buffalo check patterns are all the rage right now!  Interior textiles and fashion have exploded in this print this season.  While many may view buffalo check prints as having a country or cottage style, I believe it can mesh well in contemporary interiors.  I have some wonderful buffalo check inspiration and a fabulous look for less to share today!

To date, I have not used buffalo check patterns in my home,  but I have seen so much of this fabulous print that I may need to jump on board!  Here is some gorgeous inspiration.

As you can see from the inspiration shots, one of the easiest ways to inject a buffalo check print into a space is with throw pillows.  For today's Look for Less, I found buffalo check pillow options at various price points.

Aren't they all lovely! All three options are available in multiple sizes and would look great on a bed, chair, sofa, or bench.  Here are the high and low Look for Less options again.

Look For Less! Vol. III - Chinese Chippendale Chair

Design Inspiration, My HomeSarice GutmanComment

I have a fabulous look for less for you today! Last week on Instagram (are you following me?! you should be!!), I posted a snapshot of some of my blue and white porcelain collection as well as my bright, coral colored Chinese Chippendale chair!  I had many comments regarding my Chinese Chippendale chair and so today's look for less will reveal splurge and save versions of this lovely style chair.

I am a full-blown chinoiserie lover.  I like to think of my style as coastal chinoiserie.  Most of my home incorporates shades of blues, including turquoise, and coral.  This snapshot I shared on Instagram shows off a little bit of this color palette.  Check out my gorgeous chippendale chair! Isn't she a beauty?!     

Chinese Chippendale chairs are classic and can be utilized in many interior styles.  I've seen them in numerous finishes.  Here are some gorgeous examples.

Fabulous right?! The Jonathan Adler Chinese Chippendale Chair is the crème de la crème of the style.  If you see a Chinese Chippendale chair in a luxury interior space and it is not vintage, it is most likely Jonathan Adler.  Of course it is also the most expensive.  Amazingly, many of the other options are so close in design, you wouldn't notice the difference for the most part! Take a closer look at the high and low price points...

That is a savings of over five hundred dollars!!! My own coral colored Chinese Chippendale chair is the look for less version! I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Have you found yourself drooling over Chinese Chippendale chairs now? Go for it! They blend seamlessly with any style interior and are so architecturally pleasing to look at.  Let me know if I can even help you integrate one of these beauties into your home!
