The Look for Less

Any designer can make a home beautiful with a large budget, but how do you achieve the look on a limited budget without sacrificing looks and quality? With stores like Ikea, and my personal fav HomeGoods, its easy to furnish a home with a limited budget. I love a good bargain but I hate the idea of clients buying furniture that they do not love just to complete a room. I would so much rather see a blank wall in a family room, than a generic $149 Bed Bath and Beyond print of flowers or Venice. I know its hard and everyone wants their house done yesterday, but a house is never completely finished. The difference between buying three Ektrop pieces and a coffee table from HomeGoods to complete the living room, vs scouring the internet for affordable designer looking items, is what most people have trouble with. Here are a few of my favorite online finds to get the look for less.

Wisteria Ceramic Stool $289

Amazon $249.99
World Market $179.99

Aidan Gray $1,500

Horchow $760

Wisteria $279
