INTERIOR DESIGN Splurges!!! People ask me all the time, “Hey! What items are WORTH splurging on?” I call myself the “Decor Whore” because I am a whore for great design, AND great pricing. My entire business is built around one philosophy… you CAN have a beautiful home without breaking the bank! And so, while I have lots of advice on where to cut costs, I also have strong opinions about WHAT items you SHOULD invest in… Sofas, desk chairs, and mattresses are DEF worth investing in. It may sound utilitarian – but these items can be accessorized in a way that makes them chic, modern and stylish! We spend years sitting and sleeping - so opt for quality products that support your body. Also go with a reputable brand (Pic #1: C&B sofa) that is well made, AND can take a beating (GET THE PERFORMANCE FABRIC!).

In addition, custom built-ins are ABSOLUTELY worth every penny. It adds value to your home, AND it also adds character & style, while giving you the storage you need to display books and personal treasures. Typically you see custom these in Living Rooms or TV Rooms, but they are also fabulous in bedrooms (Pic #2)! And lastly, overhead lighting (Pic #3). It doesn’t sound sexy... but adding hi-hats to a room is a game changer. It will literally change everything about the space... making it warmer, cozier, and more inviting... it will cost a bit - but I promise you, it will make a world of difference!!!
