We’ve all been there—ogling over a gorgeous home on Tour, in a magazine spread, or on one of our favorite HGTV renovation shows. The rooms have such personality and life—and that’s not just the lighting. These homes have been professionally staged—and it shows.
Decorating on a Budget
Decorating is an art. It’s not easy for most of us! And, it can be downright intimidating, not to mention expensive. But, considering the width and breadth of style guides and Pinterest boards, and blogs available for your perusal—decorating your home with style and panache isn’t impossible. It just takes a plan, creativity, and some legwork.
Where to Begin?
Start with a plan and a budget
Yes, this is the boring part—but, a vital step in the process. Walk around your home and take note of the areas you’d like to see more functional, more beautiful, or eye-catching. Perhaps you want to concentrate on the entry—where guests and family members kick off their shoes and throw their coats to the wind. Or, maybe you’re looking to make the powder room the true jewel of the house with a surprising color scheme and fun prints. Whether you are looking to buy a whole room of new furniture, or spark up an area with color and decor—making a list of priorities will help you make decisions as you find pieces you love. Budgeting for these wants is also essential to helping you make final choices.
ART is Everywhere
Gone are the days of traveling the world in search of beautiful artwork—Etsy is here! Now the art comes straight to you. Artists from across the globe sell their original artwork, prints, and downloadable digital files directly to you. You now have the power of choice—from whether you print on metal, canvas, or photo paper, to the shape and color of your frame. Truly, buying art has never been easier or more affordable.
DIY and Proud of it!
We can thank the myriad of HGTV shows for the rise of local canvas and board shops—where you can create your own masterpiece with the assistance of a teacher and a glass or two of wine. After an hour or two with good friends, you’ll have beautiful art and memories for your new home.
Before you go shopping, make a specific list of furnishings that you would like to see in your home. Even better? Save a Pinterest Board or tear out your favorite looks from a magazine and bring them with you. Now, when you go thrifting you’ll be able to compare the treasures you find to your dream look. Check out local consignment shops, antique fairs, and your local Goodwill or Habitat for Humanity—they have everything from coffee table books, to throw pillows, frames, and more!
