Copy Cat

did i ever tell you about my copy cat room? i saw this room about 4 or 5 years ago in coastal living and fell in love.

so much so that i decided to recreate it in my own home. and when we moved two and half years ago, i recreated it again in our new house! what first caught my eye was the rug, which is from dash and albert and something that i had already owned. once i saw it with blue and white, it was over.

i researched everything in this room - the linens, the lampshade and bolster fabric, even the poster on the wall. it's hard to tell in the pic above but there is also a band of pale blue that runs across the top of the room. so here is my room:

granted my photography is not the same caliber of the magazine! if you're interested, the starfish fabric is a robert allen pattern, the blue striped linens are from williams sonoma home, and the sheets are from pottery barn.

some i'm sure would call this unimaginative and, well, copied. but i love this room and i'm glad i can enjoy it in the flesh and not only in the pages of a magazine. i hope the original designer would be flattered!
