I'm a little late in posting, this weeks Designer vignette. BUT, I do believe, it will be worth the wait.  Is this Entry vignette, gorgeous or what?  I found this photo, from Elise Valdorcia.  Take a minute, and check her website out;  She is an AMAZING artist, from France!  If you  love Shabby Chic, you will love her site! 

Ok, back to this Entry, what's not to love??!!  The  GLORIOUS stone wall, the  fabulous aged mirror, adorned with the incredible finial post and frame!   The wonderful cherub , perched on this incredibly beautiful Queen Anne table! OMGoodness, It just makes my heart go pitter patter:) ...swoon:)

Well ,we all know what antiques cost, right?  For me, it's just not in my budget:))  I have to get REALLY creative, because "I want, what I want",  and by darn, I'm gonna have it!  SO,  let's do this:)

Here is my interpretation, of a Current day Shabby Chic Entry, that is affordable, for most.  What do you think?  Mind you, we are not in Italy or France, where these wonderful stone walls stand everywhere.  Nor is it easy to find these incredible decorative pieces, that wont cost us a fortune!   BUT, I have found some goodies, that will give us a modern day Shabby Chic look, for less!  Let's take a look:)

To begin, I found a wallpaper, that looks like old wold stone.  The detail is very realistic, don't you think?  It's priced at $32.99/roll.

The incredible antique chest, I found  on Etsy from BmadeNew.  It is priced at $351 plus shipping.

The Lamps come as a set of 2, which are priced $215.99 at Overstock

I found the  mirror at Wayfair, priced at $238.00   It has the perfect patina, for our Shabby Chic setting.  

The Decorative Pillows were found on Etsy, from Mazizmuse, priced at $65/ea

The Buste was found on Etsy from Atelierantiquel, priced at $54

I found the Stool at Overstock for $265

And finally these incredible Side Chairs, from Overstock, priced $275/ea

The Copy Catz version comes in at a little under $2000 plus shipping and taxes.  Our Designer room, well let's just say, the price of  the mirror alone, would probably go well beyond, our $2000 completed vignette.
So let's look at them together:)

The Copy Catz Interpretation

You all know how much I LOVE an Eclectic space:)  I'm simply not a matchy, matchy, kind of decorator!  Now don't get me wrong,  we do have to repeat, different elements, subtly,  to create a cohesiveness, throughout the space!   BUT the trick in Eclectic design, is to find the perfect (?)  that will marry the different styles, pattern,etc., in perfect harmony.  My preferred (?) is color and tone.  The finished result is a timeless space, that you will enjoy, for years to come!    

This completes our second room vignette:)  I'm so glad you stopped by,

Until we meet again:)
