|Charlotte Moss-- I love this armless sofa and the darling footstools under the coffee table. Red and green look lovely.|
|Charlotte Moss. Oh, I love the gold framed bamboo coffee table and the chintz loveseat.|
|Meg Braff. Love this room with the red accents and the klismos inspired ottoman. Rattan etageres are fab (there is one on the other side not pictured).|
I am trying to keep costs down as much as possible and I thought I would share my budget conscious ideas with you. First, nothing looks like an antique other than a real antique and the only places you can really get them is at auction or an estate sale. So I am checking my luck at auction. That said, I am going to try using a source for new screens and see how I do... Oriental Furniture (an online retailer) has some attractive screens including these 3ft. x 6ft, hand painted ink and watercolor silk screens from $129 - $199 plus shipping. I have never ordered from them or seen them in person, but I may have to break down and order. All the photos below come in 36" x 72" size or larger. This top one is my first choice for the room I am doing.
Or how about this large screen:
|This is really good looking, just large 72" x 72" and $ 285. See it here.|
A second option I found is a super cheap option for a huge wall. This is a paper mural that looks like an Asian screen (aka a poster). It is a Heron Nesting Mural 4’ 5” h x 12’ w -- Packaged in four (4) poster panels. These panels would look great mounted on foam core and framed (with non-glare glass) and placed on a wall or alternatively they can be placed in molding and used as wallpaper (perhaps with a glaze over them). The posters are $66.38 with shipping. Sorry for the terrible picture. I ordered them and they look like posters, but behind non-glare glass (which makes everything look better) they could look really good. Here is the Link: Mural
