How to Get a Luxurious-Looking Home on a Budget
It's no secret (to Chris) that I like the finer things in life. I'll find myself perusing a magazine or shopping an antique store and everything I'm drawn to makes me fall over in shock when I look at the price tag. I can spot something fabulous from a mile away. I allow myself to have nice things but blend them with less expensive items to maintain a style I love and my budget! Today I'm going to share my tips to a luxury home for less, when to spend, and how to blend high and low items.
Luxury For Less:
Shop outlets: They don't just carry damaged goods, but also carry overstocks and floor models. I particularly love outlets for down pillow inserts (usually 1/6 the price) and if you're lucky, curtains. Get to know their sales and their staff. I know to refrain purchasing from the Restoration Hardware Outlet when they're offering $100 off every $500. I hold out for 30 to 40 percent off. Remember, it's only a deal if it's exactly what you want!
