How to Make Affordable Decor Look Expensive

Cheap Furniture That Looks Expensive

If you were to design your dream house, it may look like this: a mix of affordable pieces, say from CB2, and unique, pricier items, say from 1stdibs. Well, Decorist — the interior design site we've written about before — read your mind and did just that.

The online decorating brand offers interior design services with a package that includes room layouts and clickable shopping lists for any budget. Recently at the San Francisco home of founder Gretchen Hansen, the Decorist staff basically replicated that process in real life by creating a virtually designed house. We were lucky enough to tour all three floors, and man, we were impressed. Many of the rooms' staples were low-budget finds, but the trick was styling them in a way that only looked expensive. Whether your style is minimalist, bohemian, or bright and bold, there's some inspiration waiting for you in the tour ahead.
