How to Get High Style On a Budget!

I was excited to be included in the ivillage round up for "How to Get High Style on A Budget". Let's face it we all like it when we can get a "designer look" without paying the big bucks, right?  For me, living authentically means living within your budget, which  translates to trying to decorate without spending tons of money.  Here are great ideas from some of my design buds that are worthy of a gander.  My friend Traci Zeller suggest using an affordable chair from Ikea with a slip cover in a child's room.  What a great idea! The slipcover can be removed for ease of cleaning. She added grosgrain ribbon on the skirt to co-ordinate with the room

My friend, Ann McDonald has a couple of great ideas, first she created a great looking headboard by using a screen she found at Cost Pluss for $39.99

Ann also created this inviting dining space with items
 typically used for outdoor entertaining.  

My friend Emily Clark of Emily A. Clark Design Simplified blog talks
 about using matchstick blinds for a layered
 effect for your windows...

My friend Heather Grahling from Vivid Hue Home 
shows how to use high/low products in a room to save your budget.  
She uses her own sunroom as an example of high/low design.  

So many awesome ideas!  Be sure to pop over and read all the great ideas

Hope your Tuesday is awesome!
