Spend vs Save - Seaside Style
It's no surprise what's been on my mind lately. I think 4 out of 5 posts are related to decorating. Those who are here for the baby updates, apologies, and those who were here for this stuff prior to kid stuff taking over, again, apologies.
Of course, in my search for things to add or make mental notes of for our home, I've come across lots of high and low look-a-likes.
I actually saved this blue coral diptych last week when scouring art pieces. I'm always drawn to blues and sea themes, I later found this great framed coral art, but was able to find a great dup on etsy for a frame I already own . I ordered it last night!
We already own a Pottery Barn Beachcomber tray, and I would love to add a similar style basket (or two) on the bottom shelf of the bookcase in our family to store blankets and conceal some toys and books. But I definitely don't want to spend the Pottery Barn price for a basket. These container store ones are the perfect replacement for a fraction of the price.
The drapes are fairly self explanatory (high / low), I'm actually looking for similar ones, but in indigo or navy. I ordered the ones I previously mentioned from Nordstrom, but they were too short... I forgot we had a sunken family room, oops.
And lastly, the mirrors (high / low). We decided we are putting the dining room on an indefinite hold until the floors are put in, but I still would love to hand a simple circle mirror over a sideboard and flank it with some sconces we have in storage. Someday.
