I've used some photos of rooms that I thought were beautiful and I've pulled together some decor to give you examples of how to steal style. If you see something you like there will be links to all the items so that you can buy the room I feature. Also if you see rooms you like or even an item that you like elsewhere, email me the image and I'll see if I can help you find it. So if you've got a decorating dilemma and you don't know what to do you could always...STEAL STYLE!

Here's the game plan...
Now steal that style!
To save money you could always use an existing bedside table or find a bargain and paint it in a bold yellow hue, as long as you don't compromise the style of the furniture it should work. If you want the real deal...here it is Jacqui 3-Drawer side table in Citrus Yellow- $660.00
This was my pick when it came to the fabric to be used on the headboard, bed skirt and drapes. Although were stealing style if you really want the project to come out correctly you will have to do some work so that there's a "custom look"White Floral Silk Chiffon- $8.00/yd
I initially thought this fabric was too dark for the sofa but now I actually think it's perfect! I would enlist the help of a professional upholsterer, because although the structure of the sofa seems to be simple enough to slipcover, you're working with a stripe-patterned material and it's important that the stripes line up correctly. Also remember when choosing this fabric that it needs to be suitable for upholstery because all fabric isn't heavy enough for the job. Beach Umbrella "Key Lime" stripe fabric- $13.95/yd
Finding a lamp like the one in the photo wasn't easy but I really like the look of this lamp from Jonathan Adler, although it's rather pricey. If you find something comparable at a better price BUY IT! Don't worry about color, you could always spray paint it and change out the lamp shade. Whittier Lamp- $375.00
Be mindful of the shades of blue/green you use so that they all coordinate and when you buy your rug choose a size that's suitable for your space. Shaw shag rug in Sea Grass- starting at $219.00
Bulova Alarm Clock- $39.00
