Room Envy: Simple Yet Chic

“My approach is to work within a client’s budget finding unique pieces that are economical but look expensive. You don’t need to spend a fortune for your home to be unique and beautiful”, says interior designer Kellie Landen of Kellie Landen Designs. 

“I always like to incorporate natural textures to add dimension to a room. The straw-like fixture and rug offer those elements. We selected a very light hue of grey for the overall color to keep it light and bright and feel updated.”

“This is a room for an approaching tween. Isabel wanted to transition from a little girl’s room to a more sophisticated room. Her color palette she selected was orange and turquoise. We wanted to keep it clean without clutter. It’s simple yet chic and passes the Big Girl test.”


The rug came from Green Front Interiors & Rugs. It is my go to for purchasing rugs locally—not to mention I love the furniture line they offer.

The natural straw light fixture was a great find—financially and aesthetically. I found it at the Carolina Antique Mall in Cameron Village. I had it reworked by Thompson-Lynch Company on Atlantic Ave.

The end tables were purchased from At Home; it’s a great place to find inexpensive, yet current pieces.

The mirror above the bed came from Kelly Odom Flowers—not only is he a great floral designer but he also carries unique pieces in his shop.

We decided to spend the money on the bedding, which is from Serena and Lily but the throws were also from At Home.
