We're kicking off a new Friday series today on the blog! Our last Friday series, Best Of, finished up just before the One Room Challenge kicked off, and I know many of you were sad to see it go. I'm sure I'll bring it back sometime in the future, but if you liked that series, I'm guessing you'll like this one as well!
In the Get the Look posts, we'll take inspiration from a beautifully furnished and decorated space, and re-create it with pieces so you can, well, get the look for your own home! See how I did that? I'm excited to start this series off with a living room from Fixer Upper, which seems to be everyone's favorite show right now on HGTV. Their signature modern farmhouse style has become a major trend in the design world, and is one of the most commonly requested from my clients!
This Fixer Upper living room we'll take inspiration from actually deviates a little bit from that signature style, but this one is one of my absolute favorites: The Mid Century Modern House. This home has a fully open floor plan for the living, dining, and kitchen areas, and feels so open and airy. The black painted cabinets with brass hardware make the kitchen a beautiful focal point of this massive space, but the living and dining areas are equally stunning. You can see the whole home here.
So how you can you get the look of this living room? Scroll on down! I've got a "low" option that's quite affordable, and a "high" option that's still very attainable. (I feel like I need to give a disclaimer that those words mean different things to different people, but I put together both of these looks on reasonable budgets - nothing crazy!)
The total cost for this "low" look is about $3,000. Not bad for a whole living room! The sofa, rug and accent chair are the pieces that made the difference in keeping the cost down. I can't vouch for how comfortable the upholstered pieces are, but they sure do look nice!
And if we crank it up a notch, we get this:
The total cost for this "high" look is about $5,500. Again, that's pretty good for a whole living room's worth of furniture!
I chose some pieces from West Elm, Anthropolgie, and Crate and Barrel for this look, which did increase the price overall, but they're higher quality pieces that will likely hold up longer. I've personally sat in the accent chair pictured and it's very comfortable.
So tell me, what do you think of this new series? Are there any "looks" you'd like to see me cover?
