When do you advise your clients to save on home decor? And splurge?
I’d say it depends upon where you are in life. If you’re settled and own your home, you can start to invest in pieces that really fit the space. If you’re renting and may move in a few years, you need to be practical. Try to invest in the things that are reasonably sized and can move with you and things that have durability. That said, there is also an after-market for furnishings, so if you go that route, vintage pieces tend to hold value (or even appreciate in value) better than store brands.
