Do you define your style as eclectic? Maybe a little bit funky? Do you crave color? Well, Charlotte Smith of At Charlotte’s House created a living room that’s right for you! Charlotte is a self-defined lover of color and creating spaces that are filled with unique pieces on a budget, and her room creation for the challenge is no exception. The best part? We’re going to give two people the chance to win a $250 IKEA gift card to refresh your living room. Read on to find out how to win.
The sapphire blue couch from Overstock.com followed by the super color accent wall commands your attention from the beginning. Fun fact, the accent wall was created using colors from the carpet to help tie to room together and to give it a better sense of cohesion. You can take samples of the carpet to your local big-box hardware store and they can color match the samples to paint color to help you get a similar look.
The wall art does double duty in serving as the mandated funky and funky items as well as an item from a local retailer. What’s not to love about the Britney Spears print or the faux-Pantone Cheeto orange color sample? If you know Charlotte, you also know she’s a self-proclaimed Cheeto aficionado.
The best part about this room? We gave each contestant a $2,000 budget and Charlotte worked her magic and kept this room to just $1,904.73. A true testament to her strength as a bargain-ista.
