Copy Cat Dining Room: Same Look, VERY Different Price Tags 

My approach to design is always to get the best bang for every buck. I use each penny in a client’s budget to get the best longevity out of their investment. If it’s a trend, we will spend money on items easily changed down the road without breaking the bank (i.e. pillows and accessories). A larger portion of the budget will be put towards investment pieces, which will hold up in style and quality for at least 7-10 years (i.e. large furniture and items affixed/installed).

Usually, I approach the task of recreating an inspiration room photo by striving to achieve the overall look and feeling of the room. This time, I challenged myself to recreate the room, piece by piece, and I used two very different budgets to get me there.

I came across this beautiful dining room, and it is perfect for my project inspiration.
