copycat- amanda nisbet's lilac bedroom

didn't you just love this lilac bedroom in the last post? here are my ideas to steal the same look, but for a lot less money.

1. start with the right bed: csn has the perfect lilac headboard for $224:
2. now for the bedding. both of these adorable pillows are from serena and lily
buy this ikat scarf and sew it to make a beautiful ikat pillow

pick up this $35 duvet set and this lilac sheet set on overstock and sew lilac ribbon on the border

3. and now, for the table. first, check out this lamp look-a-like

this nightstand from target isn't quite as modern, but I prefer its lines

4. and now for the art. sorry amanda, but i think that the art on your wall is too pretty in a pretty room. i wanted to go edgier, and one of my favorite sites (more on it later) is so affordable! you can get this original photograph in a super large size for only $200. and, you can get it for $50 and $20 in smaller sizes. i love it, and love that it is a masculine image in a lilac dreamy room. this photograph is by juliane eirich.

with a sewing machine and our designer's genius, we can steal the same look for a lot less. i used to think that lilac should be saved for the nursery. but now, after seeing nisbet's grown up bedroom, when we move into a big house with lots of rooms (okay, i'm dreaming again) wouldn't this be a great place to start for a guest bedroom? or should it be the master bedroom?

i leave you with our color inspiration palette, put together by the talented leslie from color me pretty
