Look for Less: Home Office

Today I'd like to introduce you to a new and exciting series I've been working on! Ever pin these outrageously beautiful images of interiors and think to yourself, WOW I wish? Whatever that space may be, a bedroom, living room, home office ANYTHING - I would love to help you achieve that look for less.
For most of the images you'll find in Elle Decor, or even on Pinterest [they got there somehow right?] - They usually come with that treacherous thing I'm always mentioning... A big price tag. And if you're anything like me, well lets be real for a minute. You're probably on a budget. It's a sad but realistic truth that student loans and rent come before the well being of my pitifully bare apartment.

So with my new series "Look for Less" I'll be taking those ever so famous "I wish" Pinterest images and re creating the same look [or feel] for less! The best part - Links and Prices will all be included! If you see something you like for a good price tag, you will be able to go shopping and put the look together yourself!

Here is my first Look for Less:

Look for Less: Home Office

Get the Look:
1. Desk - This mirrored desk from World Market is such an elegant piece - $234.00
2. Chair - Acrylic furniture is such a trend right now! - $106.00
3. Table Lamp - This table lamp might be a little smaller than the one in the inspiration image but it will still stand out sitting on the desk! Lamps Plus - $60.00
4. Pillow - Don't forget to buy an 18" pillow to go with this amazing faux fur pillow cover from Pottery Barn - $33.00
5. Wastebasket - Target is the place to go for all of your bathroom accessories - $24.99
6. Paint - Benjamin Moore | Copper Patina Paint. A gallon of paint could cover a good sized office in stripes - $35.00
Total: $492.99

Have an image or look you want to recreate for less? Send them over & maybe I can feature you on a look for less post!


  1. This is a great idea for a post! I can't wait to see some of the other ones you do. I love the mint color, I was just talking about adding some mint accents to my living room :)


Thanks for reading! I'd love to hear from you!
