Home Decorating Ideas, Classic Black and White Design ,by, Blondiesloft&Co.

Hi everyone, have you all had a FUN summer?  I think I've had too much fun:)  It has been non-stop, since April!  Business is picking up and we have had some home projects of our own, that has been keeping us busy!

So, what do you think of our Blog's new look?  I'm excited, it's sorta like buying a brand new pair of shoes.  I'm diggin it, and I hope you do too.

So here is the deal, I haven't made any Blog entries, for a while.  I decided to put it on the back burner, for a while, so I could ponder on exactly just "WHAT" I wanted   to share with you guys, and "HOW" to present it in a way, that you will "GET"it:)   Well we tried the Mood Board thingy( which I do,and ALWAYS will:)), some received it, and others, well not so much, but, that's ok:)  I am determined to help ALL the DIY'ers, Budget-Minded,and everyone in between, achieve the room of their dreams.

Beginning NOW, I will be featuring a designer room, that I will recreate, using budget friendly design items. My goal is to feature 4 drop dead gorgeous rooms, a month, that YES, even YOU can afford:)) How does that sound?

Starting now through the end of September, our theme for the month is none other than classic "Black and White".  You know how I LUV it:)

So let's begin, with this beautiful transitional bedroom above:)

Let's start with the lamps.   Ours has a drum shade, and honestly, I like it better.  You get 2/$135.89

Now what girl doesn't like a little bling in their bedroom, this one is priced at $258.95

The  transitional wall sconces, marry the modern table lamps with the traditional chandelier.  I adore these sconces, priced right at $185.49/ea

The bed I found is pretty close , with the exception of the queen anne legs:) .  It is priced at $1179.00 and it ships free!

Moving on to the Rug, and fabulous Sheers that adorn the windows.

I did try to find a textured sheer, but to no avail!  These however, are simple and elegant.  They will work purrfectly:)  They are priced at an unbelieveable 2/$39.99

Don't you just LOVE the pattern on this rug, and priced at $303.00

The night stands I found, are almost dead on priced at $123.88/ea

Last but not least is the mirror over the bed.  I found a keeper:)  Priced at $259.99

Ok, let's take a looksy at the Designer room, vs., my Copy Catz rendering

Pretty sweet, don't you think??

The Copy Catz room comes in at an unbelievable $2795.57, before taxes and delivery.  The Designer room, well being that it's a stock photo, I don't have the price breakdown, BUT, I promise you, it would push somewhere between $8,000 to $10,000 , easily! 

Can we say Yayyyyyyy:)

One thing to remember, I can recreate, ANY designer room, for ALL, budgets.  If you have an inspiration room, you can purchase a room, here, and I will design a Copy Catz rendering, using budget friendly design items:))

Ok, that's it for this week, I'll  see you next week:)

Until Then,



  1. Nice Post! The home should look attractive in totality right from the kitchen to bedroom, living room area and bathroom. However, Home decorating ideas you select to incorporate should be realistic too.

    1. Thank you Karen, for stopping by:) I agree with you! We all have found designer rooms, that we love , but unfortunately carries an unrealistic price tag! Designer rooms CAN be recreated using budget friendly items, that will deliver a high end look, for a fraction of the cost! Blondiesloft has built it's reputation, by designing quality budget friendly spaces. For us, it is always about the clients personality, taste, and budget!
