5 Tips To Design Your Home For Less

It's easy to think that redecorating your home or space will take a lot of money. But, it doesn't have to!

One of my favorite interior designers, Tiffany Harris, is showing us how to get great looks for less today on my YouTube channel. Click the video below for her tips and tricks:

TIP #1: Accessorize Your Home

Try not to buy a lot of small accessories. Just a few statement pieces. It can really change a space with not a lot of money. Look at scale, texture, and it can be easy to find a knock off.

TIP #2: Use Texture

Adding texture changes a room and provides depth. The use of fur throws and textured table runners are a few examples. So, how do you know if you've gone overboard? It's just like fashion. When you look in a room and all you see is that one texture--you need to tone it down. Mixing and matching helps with this!

TIP #3: It's All About A Floral Touch

This might be the most important tip yet easiest tip. In my opinion, a touch of floral can really change a room and add a bit of color. If you're not a professional florist, it can be a bit intimidating. Instead of sticking with a classic clear vase, buy stylish ceramic ones. You'll have variety and with or without flowers, it's a statement piece.

TIP #4: Know Where To Shop

Before I shop, I find my inspiration. Create a Pinterest page to help conceptualize your space and decide what you like. When you find what you like, it's easier to shop high and low. Stores like Target, West Elm, Pottery Barn, and Ikea have great knockoffs of designer pieces. You'd be surprised how many high-end homes have Ikea!

I also love a good find or a treasure that tells a story. Shop Etsy or your local flea market for those one-of-a-kind items.

TIP #5: Splurge On Key Pieces

In the long run , you save more money when you splurge on something you know you'll love for years to come. Whether it's a couch, a table, or even an art piece. It will last and you'll love it. Those are the key pieces you can build around.
