Affordable Design

  



Each of these items has a mirror image product that costs, at the very least, 100% more than the cheaper model.  Andboth look just as good!  

You can't teach taste.  You can, however, teach style.  And style comes from a good eye.  Not the deepest pockets.  Always be looking.

Always be on the hunt.  You can ALWAYS find what you want for less.

  5. I so agree with you, Bethany!! Why spend more when you don't need to?
    Great choices here, and I just learned of a new source.
    Happy Tuesday.

  7. I would have to say that's my greatest talent, especially to my hubs. I can ALWAYS create for less. It leaves you more money to keep creating for less!

  9. Good idea Loi!
    Great post. The hunt is as much fun as the find! I'm searching constantly for items that copy my "dreams". Can you imagine how boring life would be if all you had to do was say "I'll Take That!"

  10. Yesterday I was shopping for a client and doing my usual combo of high/low. What I thought I liked least (the low) actually became my fav when it was all together. It really can be done. Nice comparison on some awesome rugs.

  11. Great comparison. Love it all - too bad the Scalamandre is so very very expensive as I don't think anything can quite compare to it though.

  12. Great finds. I'm dying to find a place for an over dyed rug.

  13. amen, amen Bethany!!! I am a huge fan of finding look-a-likes because let's face it, there's more to life than home decor?! I say, let's spend our money on more important things like on our families, or a really good chair! LOL!!!

    Have a great day ladies! And oh, if you have time, we finished our library already!!! Check it out sometime. thanks!

  15. I am so into the look for less these days...so much more of a challenge that in the end I end up loving more...because the "finds" usually come with a wonderful backstory too!

  16. Love these comparisons. And you are so right. You can do it for less if you spend the time!
