Happy Wednesday! My goodness, I have been a bit frazzled this week. My sister’s wedding is on Saturday (eek!) so I’ve been busy all week helping her get ready for the big day. From making awesome dance party playlists to crafting decor items to writing up the schedule, I’ve been trying my best to help my sister feel less stressed! So please forgive me if I seem a bit MIA this week – crafty decor goodness (+ wedding photos!) will be coming next week 🙂
For today I’ve put together a little Get the Look for Less post featuring Restoration Hardware. I’ve done one for a Restoration Hardware Bedroom, so I thought I would try my hand at an RH living room! This is the room I was inspired by in their online catalog:
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I particularly love the delicious couch! Mmm. Check out my finds below 🙂
RH Living Room Couch
The couch being my most favorite part of the RH living room, I just knew I had to find the perfect look alike, no ifs, ands, or buts! My heart did a little jump for joy when I found this beauty at Wayfair.com. Same tufted goodness, little carved feet and rolled arms. I’m in heaven! I can barely tell the difference, but my wallet sure can.
The coffee table pictured from RH is actually a longer version of the one shown in the catalog photo, but it was the only photo they had in the online store! Finding something similar was a bit challenging, but I think this one from hayneedle.com keeps the same rich wood goodness and follows similar sharp, boxy lines, for a weighty look.
Same with the coffee table above, I think the matching side table from hayneedle.com provides the same great rustic and warm feel that the original RH living room version does, but at a mere fraction of the price!
RugsUSA is my best friend when it comes to finding the perfect rug for less! RH’s 8×10 version is over $1,500, but Rugs USA gives me the same sisal jute natural fiber texture but without making me toss those extra Benjamins.
I loooovee the rustic feeling of the Restoration Hardware chandelier. The little faux candles, the simple round iron base; gorgeous. I found a similar one at Overstock.com. Similar look, very un-similar price.
This faux stone lamp from Restoration Hardware is elegant and sophisticated. Lamps in general can be expensive if you want to get quality ones, but my find from Lamps Plus kicks down the price a couple hundred bucks while retaining the faux-stone/concrete look.
Mirrors are a fantastic way to make a space appear larger and more full of light. While I love RH, I’m not a fan of paying that much for a bit of glass and wood. If you don’t want to make a mirror frame yourself, which would cut down the cost even more, try this mirror from theclassyhome.com. Less than a hundred bucks and ready to hang!
In the catalog spread above, RH provides some beautiful gray pillows (not pictured in the price comparison) in both square and rectangle sizes. The originals are $49 and $59, respectively. Now, they may be pretty pillows, but I could never bring myself to buy a pillow for more than $25 bucks. Enter Ikea! Ikea has some sweet gray pillow inserts and covers that together cost $19.99 and and $9.99. Now that’s much better!
If you bought all of the RH living room pieces new, including two side tables and two lamps instead of one, the total would come to… $10,510 before tax. HOLY CANNOLI. All I can say is nope. Nope. Nope. It would take me years to save up that much dough! However, if you were to purchase all of my finds, your total would be… $2,886.90 before tax. Wow. That’s a total savings of $7,623.10.
Of course, you can always save more by doing some DIY projects, scouring thrift stores and garage sales, and by buying one piece at a time instead of everything at once!
