Since I first published this family room/ playroom featured in Lonny Magazine back in April, you wouldn’t believe the amount of emails and comments we’ve received asking for advice on how to create a similar space on budget.
Your wish is my command, dear readers!
Here’s a design board of affordable alternatives to create a similar look for less.
- Pendant Lamps: The original basket-like wood pendant lamps in the original design (Design Within Reach (DWR) – Koura Pendant) retail for almost $2,000 — eek! Go for these Woven Seagrass Pendants (on sale of $64.99 each from West Elm) for a similar look and an unbelievable price difference.
- Subway Art: The subway art in the original design are the lyrics to Madonna’s ‘Little Star’ by LA artist Matthew Heller — but this Horizontal Subway Art Sign from Wall Bling on Etsy ($60) looks like a great affordable alternative to us!
- Modular Sofa: The KARLSTAD Loveseat and chaise lounge in Lindö beige ($978) from Ikea gives your family plenty of seating room — looks comfy too!
- High Pile Rug: A Flokati Rug ($79.99) from Ikea is inexpensive item that will give you and baby a soft place to play. It’s 6’7″ x 4’7″ but if you want a larger rug, like the one in the original design, you can purchase two and tape them together on the back with rug tape.
