Design Board: Masculine Neutral Living Room

Look, it’s a blogger mood board! Kilim pillow: check ✔. Plenty of plants: check ✔. Something mid-century: check ✔. White walls: check ✔. I have to admit, I’m very much into the look at the heart of The White Wall Controversy, and I’ve been dying to use those chairs in a mood board for months. So here you go. #sorrynotsorry
1. Kilim Pillow – Etsy – $29 // Pom-Pom Pillow – The Citizenry – $165
2. ‘Bright Eyes’ Removable Wallpaper – Kate Zaremba on Etsy – from $27
3. Vintage Mirror – Chairish – $395 // 4. Basket – Abode Living – $32
5. Leather Sofa – West Elm – $2400 // 6. Bookcase – West Elm – $160
7. Chairs – The Citizenry – $825 each
8. Jute Rug – Overstock – $330 // Turkish Rug – Target – $1100
9. Stool – Ikea- $100 // 10. Ottoman –  Pottery Barn – $420
11. Similar Hanging Planter – Revisions Design on Etsy – $50
I decided to add prices for the pieces in this mood board just to see what the whole room would come to. If you used the wallpaper on a feature wall measuring 12 ft x 9 ft, it would be about $500, which would bring the total in at about $7400 (including plants).
And because I am perpetually miffed about the lack of good, affordable home stores in UK (I miss Target!!), I decided to tweak the board with stuff available over here for comparison. We do have access to quite a few of the pieces (thank you Etsy & West Elm), just generally at a higher price.
1. Kilim Pillow – DecorKilimPillows on Etsy – £21 // Woven Pillow – M&S – £20
2. ‘Bright Eyes’ Removable Wallpaper – Kate Zaremba on Etsy – £370
3. Hexagonal Mirrors – Pacific Lifestyle – £43 each
4. Basket – Abode Living – £22 // 5. Leather Sofa – West Elm – £2300
6. Bookcase – West Elm – £200
7. Chairs – Made In Design – £250 each (although maybe these are a closer alternative – £320 each)
8. Jute Rug – The Rug Seller – £369 // Turkish Rug – Rug Store Online – £1000
9. Stool – Ikea – £60 // 10. Ottoman – £1000
11. Similar (Smaller) Hanging Planter – Cats Ceramics on Etsy – £30

I couldn’t find any chairs as good as the leather string ones, but I do think the rattan ones I found are pretty killer. And while I haven’t linked the ottoman, I have seen it in person over here, at one of the showrooms in the Chelsea Design Centre, although I can’t remember which one. So total for the UK version… about £7000 (including plants), which is about $10200. Not that I’m bitter, of course.

    Thanks Jane! I know – the white wall thing hadn't occurred to me before but it's true. I do like that look though 🙂
