A Space Worth Recreating

Hey friends! So, ever since this Persian rug fetish post, I've had this image stuck in my mind. I'm crazy about the bluey-green floral of the chair and the leaning artwork and the Persian rug. All together. All at once.

I'm no designer, as we're all aware. I'm simply a girl who loves a great interior. But just for fun (and because I'm just that interested in recreating this space), I wanted to see what similar items I could find.
eBay has a great selection of Persian rugs lately; this one is close to the inspiration photo:
One of these chairs. Of course, the shape's not exactly the same, but the effect would be awesome if they were reupholstered...
2 chairs
KSL Classifieds (Utah's version of Craigslist)
...in one of these:
Lewis & Sheron

Richloom Platinum Collection Ampersand Cotton Jacquard Floral Drapery Fabric in Cobalt $23.95 per yard  

(This one's outdoor fabric, ergo, kid-friendly. Sweet.)
Calico Corners

Add in a small but beautiful wood secretary (this one's on sale for under $300). I love the drawers on top:
 (Maybe if I were feeling particularly adventurous, I would attempt to build my own. Except...nah. So many little cubbies!)

...and a brass desk lamp (this one captures the look for only about $60):
Throw in some great modern art, or channel your inner artiste and create something: 



...in clean-lined poster frames like these from Target:

Home® Poster Frame

or the Fjallsta from Ikea (in the lighter birch finish):
FJÄLLSTA Frame IKEA Fits certificates or documents. The mat enhances the picture and makes framing easy.

A few accessories will complete the scene, like these or other vintage or heirloom treasures:
Antique Clock on Mantle

5 Vintage Sky Blue Book Collection - Book Decor - Photography Prop - Interior Decor

I think it could be pulled off! Maybe.

Do any of you have a dream piece or space you'd like to recreate? I'd love to see it! Email it to me at brittneynsmart [at] yahoo [dot] com. (If you want to up the ante a little bit, give me a budget you're trying to stick to. Just because...budgets are real-life, and I'm a real-life kinda girl.)
