We’ve all been there – decorating is expensive. But with the right resources, there are ways to make it less so. In this series, I will attempt to show you how items similar in style can be wildly different in price. Sometimes it’s worth the splurge and sometimes, it’s worth digging to find a nice equivalent. – Gabrielle, Savvy Home
Usually, I’m not Ikea‘s biggest fan. I’d rather spend a little more for lasting quality. But when it comes to children’s rooms, guest rooms or secondary homes, Ikea does provide good budget options. In fact, the Edland bed (pictured above) was one of their best products ever – so Ikea, if you’re listening, please bring it back.
Even without the iconic $279 canopy bed, if you’d want to re-create the room above today, you can still manage to buy everything from the low column, for nearly a third of the price of the bed in the high column. Not bad eh? I can say that I’d personally be tempted to splurge on one or two items out of five. Can you guess which ones? Where would you splurge and where would you save?
I love the look of this bedroom. It was decorated by Kieran and Stephane DiTullio in a 19th century farmhouse in New York’s Hudson Valley. The couple did a fantastic job at whipping their country escape into shape. See the rest of this farmhouse haven on Savvy Home today.
See you next week!0
