Home Tour: Emily Walker of House & Home

Happy Friday to you all! Today's post features the gorgeous home of Emily Walker, a designer in Canadian House & Home's merchandise department. I've seen photos of each room featured separately on various blogs and websites, but it's so nice to finally see the entire home and how all of these beautiful rooms flow together! Emily transformed this 900 square foot bungalow into her dream home with a lot of labor, love and creativity. It's packed with bold pops of color and pattern against soft neutral grays and fresh whites. To achieve the overall look, Emily re-painted several pieces of furniture, sifted through thrift shops, and mixed special vintage accents with brand new ones. I was so inspired by this beautiful home tour, I searched online for a mix of accents similar in style to acheive a similar look for less (see at end of post)! Click here to view the entire article. Thank you, as always, for stopping by belle maison - it really means a lot to me! Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to visit next week for an exciting giveaway! XOXO - Julie

To get a similar look, I've rounded up accents that are similar in style and reasonably priced:
 a. Antique Suzani textile - $102 (frame out above the sofa - less expensive alternative to Emily's framed fabric)
b.Purple Plush Pillow - $20
c. Custom accent pillow via Alluminaire - $80
d.  Techno Black & White Rug - $319 (8 x 11)
e. Drum Garden Stool - $162
f. Pure White Ceramic Vase Collection - $9 - $89
g. Classic Stripe Wallpaper in Silver & White - $98
h. Claiborne Table Lamp - $119
i. Sputnic Chrome Chandelier Atom Light Fixture (similar to one shown in kitchen) - $208
j. White Bubble Lamp (similar to ones in master bedroom) - $17
k. Suzani Dial Fabric (another inexpensive option above the sofa)
