Only a few more days until the big new design reveal!! I have so much to do I barely have time to type this. On that note, and speaking of design, here’s Andrea with a beautifully designed kids room and tips for getting the look on any budget.
I have always had a love for design and can often be found swooning over beautiful interiors and day-dreaming about how to incorporate the look into my own home. So when I was pregnant, I thought my nursery would be my perfect design project. However, my excitement quickly shifted in the opposite direction when the very obvious hit me – my new found spaces of inspiration were very EXPENSIVE.
Instead of feeling defeated, I got creative and scoured our local craigslist ads for items and googled everything. The end result was the perfect room (for us) and complete satsifcation of keeping our purchases within a budget we were comfortable with. Now whenever, I see a room, an outfit, or whatever it is is that may be out of my price range, I simply take advantage of the internet and search and search until I find the look at the price I am comfortable with.
For fun, I wanted share this beautifully designed kiddo room (perhaps a bit impractical and clearly not lived-in, but sure is pretty on the eyes!), from one of my favorite interior designer’s portfolio and show how you can Steal or Splurge to get a simliar look:
