One of my favorite shows on HGTV was the High-Low Project: where the designer would decorate a room with high-end furniture and finishes and then re-create the same look in the room on a budget. I loved how it showed you could get the same, high-end look at a fraction of the price.
Today I’ve got my own version of the high-low project. Kirkland’s – the fabulous home decor and gift store – challenged me to create a look in my favorite style and then re-create it for less with Kirkland’s furnishings and decor. Challenge accepted!
I chose farmhouse style, because it’s so versatile – it fits in any kind of house – and because I know so many people love this style! I love the rustic touches, the mix of materials like wood and metal, and the overall relaxed, comfortable style.
This upholstered armchair is from Pottery Barn. It has beautiful French country-style legs and is upholstered in oatmeal-colored linen blend fabric. Price: $719.97 (on sale as of today; normally $899).
This Jana Oatmeal Accent Chair is from Kirkland’s. It is also upholstered in oatmeal-colored linen fabric – a trademark of farmhouse style. It has more modern, linear legs, but adds brass nailhead trim along the bottom of the chair. Price: $279.99.
Savings: $439.98. You could buy two for less than what one cost at Pottery Barn – score!
This console table is also from Pottery Barn. It has great storage – three drawers, two adjustable shelves – and a cream-colored finish. It also has three electrical plugs on the back for plugging in your devices. Price: $799.
This Buttermilk Shutter 3-Drawer Console Table is from Kirkland’s. It also has a cream finish with good storage – three drawers and a fixed shelf. It doesn’t have any electrical outlets, but you’ll save so much over the pricier version that you could buy yourself a really nice power strip. Price: $199.99.
This trestle console table looks like it was made from reclaimed wood and balusters.
From Ballard Designs, it’s got a gray-washed finish (also comes in whitewashed finish). Price: $729.
This trestle console table from Kirkland’s also has a narrow profile and has the look of reclaimed wood. Price: $229.99.
I love this industrial stool! From West Elm, it has an adjustable seat made from solid wood, plus steel legs. Price: $229.
This equally gorgeous industrial stool is from Kirkland’s. It has an adjustable seat and is made from wood and metal, too. Price: $129.99.
I love big clocks and I cannot lie…
This metal clock from Home Decorators Collection has a copper finish and big Roman numerals. It’s big – 28″ in diameter – making it perfect for a dining room or over a fireplace. Price: $100.
This rustic-looking clock from Kirkland’s has wood and metal accents – love the mix of organic materials! – and is slightly smaller at 23.75 in. in diameter. But the price tag is smaller, too – $41.99.
Total savings by shopping farmhouse style decor at Kirkland’s: $1695.02! That’s huge!
