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.

Boho chic is one of those styles that comes and goes but always seems to stay the same: this is because the style has been highlighting the same vintage and ethnic staples for decades: indian textiles, moroccan poufs and rugs, european iron furniture and paper lanterns just to name a few. It’s an especially great style to use in a country house because it’s unfussy and timeless.
Cindy Sherman understood that concept when she decorated her 19th-century farmhouse in the Hamptons with the help of designer Billy Cotton.
