A couple of months ago my friend, Daniela mentioned that she had been chatting with her friend Sally and mentioned my blog. Sally mentioned that she read it and I was floored to learn that Sally was this Sally of Sally Steponkus Interiors based in the DC area.
This fabulous entry way designed by Ms. Steponkus has been making it’s rounds around the blog so I thought it would be fun to recreate it on a budget.
The mirror in the entry way is from my favorite guy, Jonathan Adler and comes in at $595.
My new friend Sally (yes that Sally!) Emailed me to say thanks for the shout out and a little FYI that mirror in her entry way isn’t by JA, but from here and it retails for $2,750!
I found a great look alike for $305.80
The wallpaper used above is none other than Philip Jeffries the it name in textured wallpaper. While their papers are lovely they can put a dent in your wallet so let’s recreate it.
My go-to source for inexpensive grasscloth is Steves Blinds and Wallpaper.
Here is a pick that could help us recreate the look above:
Now the paper above has a wonderful patterned on top of the grasscloth.
We can recreate that ourselves with a stencil :
I couldn’t find the exact same pattern, but I think this one gives a similar vibe for only $35.
It also comes in a larger quatrefoil for $25:
Lastly we need to recreate that amazing bench.
I found two options that could help us achieve that look.
First option would be to take this inexpensive bench:
For only $49 you can paint the base white and pick up a piece of foam at JoAnns and re-create the look.
Second option is a bit more expensive, but is already cushioned. I can’t grab a great image of it so you’ll have to check it out here for only $189.
Then we need some stripe fabric that coordinates with the grasscloth to cover the bench in.
A quick trip to one of my favorite online fabric shops and we have this:
Now I’ll have to leave the styling of those fab boots and handbag up to you, but I hope I helped with all of the rest!
A big thanks to Sally for being a constant source of inspiration. I hope she doesn’t mind my look alike take on her room. After all imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
*Big thank you to all that wished me well for my Spring audition. I made it to round 2! So now I need to make another video and then beg and plead all of you to head over there and say lovely things about me. I will keep you posted.
