inspired . the matthew williamson room

September 21, 2011 separator the look for less

Welcome to my newest feature – ‘inspired.’ This is my new version of the look for less. It’s new just because I’ve decided not to stick to the $200 budget anymore. Sorry, broke friends! This is where I find an inspiration piece for something – a room, and outfit, a project, and I make it happen with pieces and parts from all over the place! 

My first room is inspired by Matthew Williamson’s TRIBE rug. I just love the bold pattern and incredibly vivid, unexpected color combination. I pulled the color palette for this room from the rugs major accents, and the pieces just fell together!

What do you think of the room? Does it work, or is it too bold and busy? What do you think of this new feature – should it become a regular thing? 

Bonus: I put together a cute little outfit in the same color palette because I love it so much! You can click here to see where each item comes from and how much it costs (a lot, unfortunately!).
