Genevieve Gorder Living Room

It's no secret that we love the work of Genevieve Gorder, so we weren't shocked when we ran across this image of her NYC living room and instantly fell in love:

The simple color palette, the red chairs, the black and white striped pillows, that rug. Perfection.  This room really feels like it could grow with you-- you could easily swap out the throw pillows, ottoman, or bistro chairs and have a different look in this room for very little money. Love that.

Want the look of Genevieve's room but don't exactly have her budget? No worries...we've taken the liberty of recreating a similar room for much less:

Here's a breakdown of this room:

 Rug: $349.00

Chairs: $267.99

Couch: $399.00

Pillows: $16.95

Bistro table: $1549.00

Bistro chairs: $354.99

Ottoman: $159.00

Mirror: $261.80

Chandelier: $349.00

There you have it! The total cost of the room is not super cheap (thanks to the bistro table) but when you consider that each of the chairs in Genevieve's room costs $1300, things start to look a little better.  Her chairs are the Astrid chairs from Anthropologie (now sold out) and the "look for less" chairs in our room have to be our favorite part! Love them.

We think the bistro table would be a great (and much cheaper) DIY if you've got any woodworking skills (sadly, we do not).  Not the DIY type and don't have an extra fifteen hundo lying around?  We think the room would look just as good with a far less expensive bistro table, like this one from West Elm ($399):

Have any rooms you'd like to see us break down on a budget? Send them our way!
