Style At Home's High/Low: Farmhouse Inspired Breakfast Nook. Two rooms, one style. One of them cost $4,756 while the other $1,357. Can you tell which one is which?
Before I dive into the cost reveal, I'd first like to comment on how closely matched these two spaces are. Besides the shade of orange on the chairs, light fixture and base of the table, the difference is hardly recognizable. Bravo Style At Home! This farmhouse inspired breakfast nook is so vibrant with its pops of orange and yellow. Not to mention that the colour pallet clings on to the last few weeks of summer while allowing a smooth transition over to fall. I approve!
Ok, without further adieux, let's get to how much it costs to get this fresh look. The nook on the left is the cost effective option coming in at under $3000 less than the look on the right. Under close examination there are definite signs. The marble top and sleek profile of the Saarinen-style table, the vintage steel and aluminum bran pendant light and the Dualit New Generation Classic two-slice toaster from William-Sonoma. That being said, the eco-option still gives you the same look without much sacrifice in style.
Now to all my fellow thrifters, I can't sign off without saying that I still feel that you can achieve this look for even less than the eco-option. Although you won't be able to replicate this exactly, mainly because you never know what you are going to get while thrifting, you can definitely get the essence of the fresh farmhouse inspired look with an open mine, imagination and a little paint.
