Decorating inspiration with West Elm and Anthropologie. Sounds fun right? It was! A couple months ago I shared that I was decorating the model homes at our workplace. They are newer homes that are on display for clients to view and walk through.

The room below is the front living room of the two story colonial.

The drapery is from West Elm and is called Scribble in feather gray.  The furniture was purchased from Rotmans Furniture in Massachusetts. The tufted sofa and rustic reclaimed lumber coffee table coordinate beautifully together. I chose to mix and match a variety of furniture pieces from different collections to achieve a french modern country look.

The tan sisal rug is from Pottery Barn.

Candle holders wrapped in twisted sisal roping is a quick  solution to add texture to a table. The mirrored tray is beautiful and both are from Rotmans. Be sure to see our tutorial on how we made our own twisted sisal wrapped candle holder.

I do not have a decorating degree and I kind of just wing it and go with what I like. I love to mix and match styles and finding items that are affordable are certainly high on my list of priorities. It was fun this time though spending someone else’s money. West Elm offers a trendy mix of stylish home decor items at an affordable price. Decorating inspiration, for me, comes from a variety of sources and West Elm and Anthropologie are two of my favorites. If you would like to visit these homes, you can find them here.

  1. I think you did a really nice job on the model. You have a good eye and of course West Elm has such style so you couldn’t go wrong!

  2. I love the cape house room. It’s gorgeous. Who needs a decorating degree?!! 🙂 You made both rooms look beautiful.

    Both model homes are gorgeous! I think the colonial is my favorite – mostly because of that dining room table. But I have to say that those emboidered curtains are to die for! I love the mix of colors and they add just the right touch of color to the room. Love it all!

  4. Those embroidered curtains are soooo gorgeous!! I just wish that I could convince my hubby to let me use them (he hates stuff like that).

  5. You did a really nice job on both houses! I love the candle holders wrapped in rope. How did you attach it to the glass? Hot glue?

  6. OH My! So pretty! You did such a fantastic job decorating 🙂

  7. Luv the dining room. How calm and relaxed it looks. The living room is my second fave. Well done you.
    Cheers, Gee

  8. Such pretty rooms! Love how much was added to them with the draperies! I need to add that element to my home. I think after the woods floors are in, I’ll need some softness 🙂

  9. Where did the white sofa come from? I’m looking for one

  10. You did a great job. What is the name of the dining room table and chairs?

  11. I love how you styled the room — especially with the chandelier! I’ll be linking to this post on our Lighting & Fans pinboard. Check it out later this month (May 21) at pinterest.com/homedepot.

    – Chante

    1. Great thanks 🙂 Yes the chandelier is a beauty for sure! So many great compliments on it 🙂

  12. I love the decor! Especially the chandelier- what brand is it?

  13. Especially love the first home – the two story colonial. Did you make the rustic reclaimed lumber coffee table or purchase it? Would like one like it.

  14. Deb Hamel says:

    Where can I find the dining room rug? Beautiful!

  15. Beautiful!! Can you please tell me the wall color and brand?

  16. Jessica, I was just told that if you have wet shoes or feet and you step on a sisal rug it will ruin the rug. Have you experienced this? Love the grey drapes.

  17. I am loving the chandelier and I can’t seem to find it on the home depot website. Do you have the name and/ or model number? Any info. would be super helpful. Thanks so much!

    I am in need of either 2 or 4 dining room chairs like you used in this dining room. Are they available any more?
