this look (for less!): lake house study

Remember the new lake house project I was telling you about? Well it is going to be a.w.e.s.o.m.e! And i'll be sure to keep y'all around and give you progress updates & more.. But since we are at the beginning stages, all I seem to want to do is look for inspiration. I've been pulling fabrics, pinterest photos, wood samples. I'm about to run out of room on my desk already. OOPS. But its hard not to dive head first into this one, the lake is my favorite place so working there is a dream come true. But lets real it back in, for today I thought we'd look at just one of the images that I pulled for inspiration.  I specifically love the relaxing nature of this image as well as the use of so many soft organic tones. The new project has a room sort of like this one that i'm calling the "reading room."  So i'm looking to this image as my foundation for this future space. Below is my interpretation of this room using a modest budget.. "the look for less"! I was amazed at how many options I could find for less expensive upholstery (and don't even get me started on that cool spool chair!)... Amazing what you can find when you spend the time to hunt and look! Enjoy!
