So you’re redecorating your space and you’re out shopping for new decor. You see this amazingly gorgeous vase that you know you will not be able to forget. This is exactly what you have been yearning for. Beautiful, classy pieces, just like this one. Ooh now you know for sure you’re space is going to look AWESOME!
But wait. Don’t buy that vase!
Not yet anyway…
You don’t know exactly what your design scheme is yet, or what decor items you need. You don’t even know how much it’s all going to cost you, and yeah, look that that price tag! This one piece is more than half of what you can stomach spending on new decor. You need it to put it back down, like right now.
As much as you want this new vase (or insert a different dreamy design object here), you are on a budget sister, and you need to spend your money wisely. Spend it on the items that will actually help create the room of your dreams, and bring your design vision to life. Don’t make impulse purchases on single items, that you think you can’t live without.
That’s not how you make a beautiful space.
So how do you make a beautiful space? Well you need to think of the whole entire room. The whole thing needs to match your vision. The big things matter more at this point. The way your furniture is arranged, the paint colour, whether or not you have a feature wall, the use of colours and textures, and how does the room make you feel when you enter it, etc.
