Can this room be done from Ikea?

Today I'm feeling less inspired and more exhausted. All I can think about is falling into a big fluffy bed and sleeping a deep, long sleep. We've all swooned over this Miles Redd bedroom featured in Domino (Isn't it sad that you can't even hyperlink Domino anymore since the website is gone. It's like it never existed, like it was a figment of our little design imaginations). This has always been one of my favorite bedroom tearsheets. So, I got to thinking, could I recreate this one the cheap? Could I do it for Ikea cheap? I think I you can come pretty darn close. A nice subtle dark hit of spray paint and this 4 poster bed would easily pass as a stand in for Redds.
Closing matching the inspiration pics zig-zags, this little rug works overtime adding both pattern and visual interest to the room. Plus, who can resist a deal like that.

A shot of tourqouise will be perfect on this nightstand table lamp. And this white fluffy duvet and pillow set are calling to me to curl up in them and relax.
A toned down version of the fancy silk number in the picture, a ruffled trim could easily be tacked on these curtains to dress up that window like a ballgown.
And this room just would not be complete without a pair of chic little entables nestled by the foot of the bed.
And while you can't find the exact fabric pattern from the internet, this nature inspired theme would be adorable tacked right on the wall.
And there you have it, nearly an entire designer bedroom all from Ikea. And you thought they were just dorm room and first time apartments.

  2. I've been thinking about that striped rug for a long time now....

  3. I heard a rumor that Domino's content will turn up again on Lucky's site....fingers are crossed!

  4. I really like the small blue table. I dunno what it is but I like anything that is blue.
