Over the years, I have developed a “knack” for “knocking off” a high end look for less, and my recent trip to Tampa’s new Restoration Hardware store really got my wheels turning…
The entire store was so inspiring, but I thought it might be fun to try to “knock off” a few of their items for less:
- The contemporary white sofa pictured above reminds me of the Ikea KIVIK sofa we have in our upstairs bonus room:
Here is the same sofa in our bonus room in the “Restoration Hardware” configuration with two chaise lounges:
It looks very different here styled with bright colors, but overall, it’s the same look at a FRACTION of the cost!
2. Another thing I loved about this room were the large grey pillows, you can also find these at IKEA-
These are fabulous- 26″ square- large in size, but small in price- $10 each!!
I used these this past fall at the cottage, and they looked GREAT!
Here are a few ideas for knocking off this RH inspired bedroom:
- Here is a similar tufted upholstered headboard from Pier One Imports:
2. Another easy knock-off are the black sealife shadowboxes:
I actually shared a DIY post on how to make similar sealife shadowboxes. This one is pictured with starfish, but I have also used seafans just like the ones at Restoration Hardware.
I hope these four knock-offs show you how to take a high-end look and find more affordable options for an equally fabulous room!
