Decorating a room is all about balance. I’m all about saving money on the little things and investing where it counts. But who doesn’t like their home to ooze happiness and warmth? Sometimes it takes a little shopping around, but these high-low lists really help when it comes down to making interior design decisions and sticking to a set budget. Today’s edition… The bedroom! Here are a few pieces I’ve found on both ends of the spectrum, now it’s up to you to decide.
Trinket boxes. If you’re style is more high end, this elegant lacquered box by Kathy Kuo Home has a unique snakeskin-inspired pattern for a modern coastal vibe. OneKingsLane always has deals and flash sales, so it’s no surprise that they have a stunning lacquered jewelry box for less. Etsy also has similar boxes priced $40 and up.
Cozy rugs. Shag rugs are huge lately – though thankfully not the wall to wall carpeting reminiscent of the 70s. It definitely takes a good eye to pull off, but with these modern options for cream and white colored trellis-patterned nuLOOM rugs, any bedroom or living area can be cozied up. These 8×10 area rugs aren’t all that different looking, but the Nourison Amor version (which also comes in several shades) is $1400+, while you can snag a deal by opting for the Target design.
Nightstands. I love the shade and style of the slender Tommy Bahama night table from Houzz, but this similar single drawer version would probably look just as nice and the $165 price tag will save lots of room in the budget for smaller accents like lamps and pillows too.
Votive holders. Lastly, gotta give that room an ambience! Isn’t cozying up to candlelight after a long day ahh-mazing (on those rare occasions you have the time)? Mercury glass votives are perfect for a modern bedroom, and can be reused when setting up a romantic dinner or inviting guests over for celebrations. DwellStudio has a set of four for $60, which is a steal considering they’re normally $140, but you can also go the mix ‘n match route at stores like West Elm, which offers them up for $5 each or about $27 for 6.
Hope you enjoyed the latest high and low list! Check out my outdoor patio version if you’re planning for summer early.
