If you’re a Pinterest user, you’ve likely tried to pin the same image twice.  Pinterest is smart enough to recognize this, and will kindly let you know that you’ve already pinned it to one of your boards.  This has happened to me no less than three times with the above image.  After the third time, I decided I needed to do a post on this Kate Moss living room since I obviously have an affinity for it.  Thanks, Pinterest!   This fabulous living room belongs to Swedish home stylist and blogger, Rebecca Fredriksson.  Those Swedes.  Cooler than I’ll ever hope to be.  The green velvet couch, the gold pendant, the Moroccan rug, Kate Moss telling me life is a joke, it’s glam personified.  Get the look below!

  1. Couch – It’s a green velvet couch (!).  It needs no description.
  2. Book – Kate Moss is an icon.  This book traces her entire career and looks absolutely stunning.
  3. Pillow – This palm pillow emulates the one in Rebecca’s room.
  4. Peace Sign Hand – This dainty little number would look perfect on top of the coffee table in this Kate Moss living room.  And it’s only $7.
  5. Chandelier – This light is contemporary and intriguing.
  6. Kate Moss – If you’re going to have a photo of someone (that isn’t you) hanging in your living room, might as well make it one of the most famed models of all time.  I think it would be hilarious to have one of those changeable letter boards next to her that said “I mustache you a question.”
  7. Coffee table – White topped coffee table keeps with the minimal color scheme.
  8. Throw – I would imagine you would need several of these faux cashmere throws if you lived in Sweden.  Just a guess.
  9. Rug – Moroccan inspired rugs are everywhere these days and with good reason.  See more options below.
  10. Palm – This is a real life palm.  I have faith that you can keep it alive.  Maybe not if you live in Sweden though.  In that case, it’s perfectly acceptable to purchase a fake one.
  11. Tea lights – These are sweet little accents that make a big impact.
  12. Bench – I love everything about this bench.  I’ve looked at it so many times for my own home and will likely end up buying it once we’re done renovating.
  13. Map – This map looks great next to Kate.  Even if you don’t live in Sweden.

Here are a few other Moroccan rugs that look a bit different from the norm:

Rustic Montana Lodge

Get the Look: Rustic Montana Lodge Decor » StyleEmulator.com

Elle Decor recently featured this beautiful Montana home, or excuse me, “guesthouse”.  I do believe it’s what Christmas dreams are made of.  Living in Florida, I’ve always dreamed of celebrating Christmas in a snowy rustic mountain lodge, resplendent with a huge fireplace and equally large windows overlooking the snow and mountains.  This home checks all those boxes!  I won’t be celebrating Christmas out west this year, but one day, one day…  For now, here are some pieces to help emulate that cozy, rustic, and, um, expensive look and feel in your own lodge.  Make sure to check out the rest of the home, too.  The dining room chairs are incredible.

  1. Light – Let’s start off with those lights!  How gorgeous are the Moooi lights in the photo?  And they should be for over $3,000.   If you’re one of those crafty sorts, there are DIY instructions available to make your own.  If you are neither rich nor crafty (holla!), here is a nice globe chandelier to emulate the look.  I actually have one very similar to this hanging in my dining room.
  2. Print – For those of us who don’t have snowy mountains and cedar trees outside our windows.
  3. Side table – The branch legs on this table are totally fitting for this setting.
  4. Coffee table – I am loving the low profile of this coffee table.  Here’s a cheaper version.
  5. Blanket – A warm fuzzy blanket for cozying up in as you watch the snow fall outside and listen to the fire roar.  *sigh*
  6. Chair – The camel club chairs in the lodge are to. die. for.  Here is a less expensive version.
  7. Wood ball – Those large wood balls by the fire place are so fun.  Just don’t accidentally kick them into the fire.
  8. Stool – Fur stool to amp up the cozy factor (is that possible? necessary?).
  9. Antler – This is perfect decor for a mountain lodge coffee table.  Also perfect if you won’t have a deer head to hang on your wall.
  10. Pillow – Bringing a little pattern into the texture-heavy mix.

I fell down a club chair rabbit hole as I was searching for similar styles to the originals.  Here are a few others to inspire:

Mid Century Modern Living Room

Get the Look: Mid Century Modern Living Room » StyleEmulator.com

Photo Source: Jessie Webster

Does anything give off a California vibe more than mid century modern rooms?  This beautiful space is effortlessly cool, calm, and collected.  The juxtaposition between the warm leather sofa and the cold modern coffee table is perfection.  Couple those two pieces with the brass and gold elements, and the room gives off a warm feel with a modern flair.  I have to admit that I don’t feel cool enough for this room.  Maybe because I’m an east coast girl?  Whatever the case, it’s easy enough to incorporate this mid century modern look into your own home for those of us who are California dreamers.

  1. Side Table – I love the shape and style of this table.  See more options below.
  2. Mirror – Round mirrors are to the California vibe what peanut butter is to jelly, what air is to lungs, what–you get the idea.
  3. Pillow – The one element of color in a mostly neutral palate.
  4. Antler – A fancy little fake antler for your coffee table.  Good for looking at and poking people with.
  5. Vase – Both the shape and color of this vase fit right in with the modern aesthetic.
  6. Planter – Isn’t this guy cool and quirky?  He’s available in two different sizes.
  7. Sculpture – A modern element with a bold silhouette.
  8. Coffee table – I searched high and low for a silver square coffee table at an acceptable price point.  This was the closest I could find, and dare I say I like it slightly more than the inspiration photo?
  9. Figure – An abstract figurine keeping with the modern vibe.
  10. Pillow – A fringe pillow that emulates the one above.
  11. BookGuess Who by Peggy Sirota.  This book not only looks awesome on the outside, it looks really fun on the inside.  It holds pictures of celebrities in disguise with their names jumbled below their photo.  You have to guess who each celebrity is.  This would be really fun for guests to look at while hanging out.
  12. Skull – This room would be incomplete with out this guy.  Seriously.  Go place your finger over him in the photo.  …told you.

Here are some other gold/brass wire side tables to choose from that are all under $200:

Eclectic Style Living Room

Source: Architectural Digest

Over 99% of the time I gravitate toward neutral, natural, earth tone filled spaces.  But then I see an eclectic style living room like this and instantly want to add more pops of color in my own home.  Admittedly, color scares me.  Being able to expertly design an eclectic style living room such as this that is colorful, playful, and sophisticated all at once is true talent (and bravery!).  In addition to the color, Bilhuber and Associates combine textures and pattern to give the space depth and energy without appearing gauche.  I know I’d fail miserably if I tried this on my own.  So, if I ever work up the courage to emulate this style, I’ll be stalking more of Bilhuber’s work.

  1.  Chair – I think I could manage having a blue chair in my home.  I think.
  2. Sunburst – This sunburst is one of the best I’ve seen at this price point.  The detail and coloring are on point.
  3. Topiary – I’m of the opinion one can never have too many topiaries.  Is my southern showing?
  4. Print – This print makes me wonder what all those people in the sunlight are thinking.  And where were they on their way to when this photo was taken?  I’d stare at it every day while pondering those questions if it was hanging in my home.
  5. Vase – Perfect POP of color!
  6. Pillow – This banana leaf pillow both relaxes a space and gives a touch of class.
  7. Blanket – For those of us who aren’t brave enough to upholster our couch cushions in animal print.  And it’s only $10.
  8. Pillow – Another fun pattern to bring into the mix.
  9. Coffee table book – The HONY book cover is just perfect.  And you know the inside is just as good.
  10. Boxes – You could use these gorgeous boxes all together or in different spaces around the room.  I’d probably stash candy in them.  Who wants to walk all the way to the kitchen when a craving strikes,  ya know?
  11. Pencil holder – How fun is this?  I’d add a few peacock feathers in and amongst the pens and pencils for even more eclectic flair.
  12. Coffee table – A simple coffee table since we can’t go crazy with every piece of furniture.  Also available at Target if you have a Red card, but it’s a bit more $.

Rustic Farmhouse Living Room

Get the Look: Rustic Farhmhouse Living Room » StyleEmulator.com

Every time I see this rustic farmhouse living room by Groves & Co. I get chills.  That’s a bit dramatic but this space is just absolute perfection.  I knew I wanted to start this blog off with a bang, and no space is more bang and intro worthy than this.  The beams, the stone, the rug, the capiz chandelier, I can’t pick a favorite element.  Each item on its own is divine, but together they richly harmonize in concert.  The rustic, natural feel of the space is warm, cozy, and inviting.  I can picture many good conversations (probably about how beautiful the house is) happening in those chairs.

  1.  Striped rug – Striped rugs work in almost any setting and with most styles.
  2. Painting – Don’t live in the mountains?  Don’t have lodge style beams in your home?  Bring a touch of mountain whimsy via artwork by framing up a Bierstadt print.
  3. Coffee table – Target’s Threshold line consistently nails it.  This coffee table emulates the circular coffee table above and looks mighty fine doing it.  It also has a matching end table.
  4. Floor lamp – One of these days I will own a tripod floor lamp like this.  It brings the eye up just enough and adds [another] touch of warmth.
  5. Chair – Comfy chair for ogling over this rustic farmhouse living room.  This pillow would look perfect nestled on it.
  6. Tufted leather bench – Every home needs a bench.  Perfect in an entryway for removing shoes (so no one dirties up the rug…don’t care if that’s the point of rugs.)
  7. Light – This light!  I think this light might actually make the space for me.  I doubt it gives off a ton of light, but capiz adds relaxed glamour to any space it graces.  *sigh*
  8. Side table – I’ve contemplated buying this so many times.  It’d be a great conversation piece for all my introverts out there.
  9. Coasters – We should establish right now that I’m all about unique coasters.  Don’t have a huge stone fireplace?  No worries!  Buy some stones to set your drinks on.  Same, same.
