Monochromatic Bedroom {Luxe for Less}

I am back for some more Candice Olson love. Last time, I sourced out some of the key pieces/elements from the first episode of her show Candice Tells All.

I’m moving onto episode 2: Restful Monochromatic Design.

It is fabulous, and I’m here to help you create this sort of room in your home on the cheap. Well, cheaper than if she were to do it, k? Let’s swoon over the room before we delve into the products- and boy are there a TON.

This room is anything but your typical boring beige. It’s got shades of white, gray, beige with touches of glamour/sparkle.

Let’s get started shall we?

The bed is quite obviously the center of attention in this room. There are lots of stores which offer a similar shape if you’d like to buy:

image

Prices are about $900 for a king headboard + $140 for tufting from Ethan Allen.

image

Another option is the Florence Headboard from Bassett. Starting at $549 for a queen.

Or you always make your own:

Tutorial on how to make the headboard can be found here.

Candice really brought depth to the room by her use of pillows. textures and fabrics, so here are a few options for the bed throw pillows:

image

From Pier 1 Imports, $30

image

From ZGallerie, $65

image

From Etsy seller Yellow Bug Boutique, $37

image

From Wal-Mart, $15

image

From Wal-Mart, $12

All the pillows have different textures, therefore creating a sense of interest.

And now for some bedding ideas:

image

From Overstock, $45+ for the sheets

image

From Macys, $$$

image

From Anna’s Linens, $30-$150

Moving onto the lamps- they are tall, modern and chrome.

image

image

From Home Depot, $40

image

From Lowes, $70

image

From Amazon, $60 for the pair of lamps (yes, 2!!)

Now for some of the other fabulous accessories in the room:

image

The chandelier:

image

Maria Theresa Chandelier from Home Depot, $100 (stunning in person, trust me!)

image

The rug:

image

From Rugs USA, $50+ depending on size

I know this isn’t just like it, but I think this rug could work as well:

image

From ZGallerie, $300

The side table:

image

From Overstock, $102

The chair:

image

From World Market, $400

The ottoman:

image

From Lamps Plus, $300

image

Curtains:

image

From CurtainWorks, $21-$32 per panel

Ottoman:

image

From Urban Home, $139

And unfortunately, they don’t picture the wall where Candice put a desk & venetian mirror, but just for fun, here’s what the mirror looks like (just imagine it goes to the floor):

image

From Horchow, $900

Hope these little finds help you create a restful, monochromatic space. This episode is what is inspiring our entire master bedroom- can’t wait to show you what we come up with!

Do you like monochromatic design or do you prefer more bold colors? What’s your favorite part of this room?

Coming up soon- episode 3 source guide!

  3. I love that headboard and tufting from Ethan Allen. I mean love it so much that I probably will not stop thinking about it and how it would look in our room! *sigh* A girl can dream!

    I like monochromatic colors with a few splashes of bright to make a room pop. In the pics you posted, it seems the decor made the room pop with the mono colors. Love it!
