Copy Cat Design: Eclectic Dining Room

Copy Cat Design
My super-stylish assistant Colleen, who blogs at There Comes A Yes, is the queen of sourcing. She always knows where to find the pieces I have in my head for our client projects. I’m so excited that she’s going to join us on LGN for copy cat design posts! Email us if you have an inspiration room you’d like to see interpreted.

This dining room from Elle Decor is one of the first I saved to my computer many moons ago, so I was quite excited when Jenny asked me to break it down for you today!

This little guy adds just enough humor to a mantel. At 2 feet tall, he’s a statement too!
Classic Louis chair.
Faux ostrich for the dining chairs. Love a leather or faux skin for easy clean up.
Ebay is a great source for vintage oil paintings, especially quirky portraits like this one. Really dig the shade of her shirt and lipstick too!
Urban is so on the ball with trendy and inexpensive home accessories. Perfect way to add a little extra color to your room.
The inspiration room has quite a bit of traditional going on, but breaks up the look with the MCM lamp. It can be hard to find a stylish brass floor lamp new, and under $1000, so I really like this version.
Oh the ubiquitous Docksta. For the price point, its stylings are excellent, and it’s not too tiny either at 48 inches wide. Definitely prefer it paired with traditional chairs.
Always love a mix of mediums–buy three or four photos and hang them vertically for a similar look.
Pearl River is an excellent source for little doodads if you need to style your room in a hurry.
Another fun pillow to add to the mix. I’m not the only throw pillow addict, right?
This sofa is an excellent option if you’re striking out on Craigslist for the real deal. Plus, it’s a lot more apartment-friendly than most chesterfields!
What did you think?

  1. Oh so pretty, if only I had the space to recreate this! One day.. until then I'll keep checking out your copycat posts so I know exactly which style I want to go for :)

  2. I love that living room. I have had it as my screensaver for months. Loving it, loving the colors and the wonderful painting. Thanks for this post. Dawn

  3. Doing the happy dance right now in my kitchen! Thank you for the auto trim source…brilliant! Exactly what I needed for a project…four sample cards already on their way to my house. :)

  4. Love this!Thank you Jenny and Colleen! Love having all these sources – Some I knew but some I never would have thought of. And what a great room as a first subject. I want to re-create it now! Especially love the idea of the fake ostrich on the chairs and would never have thought of the Auto Trim Store. Have you ever used it?

  6. Yay! Thank you guys for so warmly welcoming Colleen's new post series! I'm hoping to make it a very regular feature. She rocks my world.

    Coqui1024 – I've used the autotrim vinyl several times. It's super duper durable and so affordable. I recommend ordering a sample card so you can touch it and see the colors in person. they have lots of styles but the baby ostrich line is my favorite. I think to date I've put it on four different sets of dining chairs! Perfect for families (or messy eaters!) :) The soft gray color is lovely and so is the yellow Colleen featured here. It's a bright mustard – such a statement color!

  7. This post reminds me of a question I'd love to submit to you ladies:

    I love pillows, but I prefer a custom combination that is interesting, where the pillows complement each other but aren't a perfectly matched set. Can you offer tips for achieving this look? There are so many cute pillows out there but I struggle to isolate the perfect few for my space. Both my living room and my bedroom need an update in the pillow department and I'm stuck. Please help!

  8. LOVE THIS!! Thanks for such great info, I already can't wait to see what's next =)
    If there are any campaign furniture sources out there besides zillion dollar antiques, waiting on CL luck and ikea hacks I would be forever grateful!!! I have had no luck so far and can't stop obsessing.
    Speaking of copy cat, I *need* copycat and start using the word "doodads" it doesn't get more fun than that.

  9. thanks jenny and colleen! love the copy cat ideas, and i'm especially excited about a few of these items…gonna have to swing by urban soon cuz that pillow is mine! :)

  10. Oh the colors are insane in that room!

    I adore your blog, I read it religiously and without fail am always inspired. I still have a long list of DIY's from you that I'm planning to do. Without a doubt your my DIY queen.

  11. May I ask what program or technique you are using to achieve the graphic layout of the photos of the selections for the copy cat room feature. thanks
