Copy Cat Chic Room Redo | Sleek Gray Living Room

Monday, October 20, 2014




Today's room is one from the Lonny archives, designed by Ron Marvin. The thing that caught my eye in this room is actually the ashtray—weird right? I actually have found myself recently in possession of several really cool ones since the closing of one of my favorite vintage stores in town, and their depth is perfect for storing knick knacks and jewelry. They’re usually super heavy and therefore immune to being knocked off my dresser or a table by my cat, and the vintage ones tend to have beautiful shapes and funky designs on them that my guests always comment on. I also have been finding them for next to nothing since apparently people think that’s a weird thing to re-purpose if you’re not a smoker. For anyone concerned (hey Mom), they’re easy to clean and have obviously been cleaned before coming to the shop, so on balance, it’s actually more hygienic than buying that awesome vintage rug/chair/sofa you scored last week. ;)



There’s not a great shot of the coffee table, but generally speaking, burl wood coffee tables are almost always more in the ‘chic’ than ‘cheap’ range. However, I think a simple and cheap solution would be to DIY an existing table using the same process from Jenny’s malachite tabletop. Here are some patterns for inspiration/color selection (1234) and some great options for a table if you aren’t already side-eyeing your current one (12345). The same goes for the lamp—all it needs is some gold paint and it will be a dead ringer.

Copy Cat Chic Room Redo | Saturated Dining Room

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Today's featured room was a challenge to track down--don't you hate it when a Pin leads to just an image? Fortunately Google's reverse image search saved the day and provided three other versions of the same space to boot! Here was my original inspiration image:


And below are three more images showing the room styled different ways:



The woman behind this eclectic and ever-changing dining space, Amanda Chantal Bacon, isn't a designer by trade but clearly has the creativity and the eye for unique pieces that leads to gorgeous interiors. This room's surprisingly sophisticated use of primary colors caught my eye first--who would have thought that cobalt blue art, an electric red rug, and a sunny yellow planter could coexist so nicely? Then there's the scene-stealing light fixture, which coordinates well with the tulip table and unadorned windows. If you're ready for a bold update to your dining area, this could be just the ticket!
