Reader Request: Sophisticated, Low Cost Living Room

This week I got a request from a reader who is sick of her current hand me down furniture, and wants some cheap(ish) but sophisticated options that she can start saving to buy.  Her style is "elegantly modern" and I found what I think are some nice pieces that could be integrated into many other rooms down the road.

Blue Gray Wool Rug - ($165)
Home Decorators Roberts Sofa ($599)
Kenroy Home Cameron Mirror ($169)
West Elm Silk Dupioni Window Panel ($50)
Home Decorators Caprice Coffee Table ($169)
West Elm Bone Side Table ($199)
"I Like the Way You Say My Name" photo - Alicia Bock via Etsy ($35)
Java Java Long Tray via Shop Furbish ($22)
Home Decorators Montego 4-Shelf Bookcase ($99)
Nate Berkus Navy Herringbone Throw via HSN ($15!)
Ikea Rutbo Ceiling Lamp ($40)

Martha Stewart Living Ingrid Armchair ($699)
Pier 1 Exhibit Lamp ($75)
West Elm Parsons Desk ($299)
Ikea Gilbert Chair ($40)
West Elm Resin Box ($17)
Nest Screen Print by BoldandNoble via Etsy ($62)


  1. Pretty! I'd take about half of those... :) Of course, my current project is a nursery. I'm trying to limit myself to only the essentials, Craigslist what doesn't have to be new, and keep it more modern than fluffy. Ha! Good luck with that, right? Five months to find the perfect non-offensive glider/rocker + ottoman! Oh, and for less than $1000.

  2. Congratulations!! I'd love to play around and make a fake room for you. I actually love reading Ohdeeoh even though I'm a few years away from putting a nursery together (knock on wood).

  3. Thanks! That would be awesome! And how did I not know about ohdeeoh? I am seriously drooling.

    And I've been thinking about nurseries for a few years, if that makes you feel any better. I knew we weren't ready, but it was nice to dream. :)
