Designing on a Budget

My very first venture into interior design started with this lovely project - my home. I bought my house in 2009 (you can call me brave, it was indeed the bottom of the market). At the time of my purchase, I had merely spent a year out of college. Needless to say, I was not very rich on funds and therefore, I had to work with a tight budget to finish all spaces (bathrooms, bedrooms, dining room, living room and yard). I truly tried, or rather had to, find the best deal on every piece.

The end result is an unintentionally unique eclectic style. You can see some rustic influences, some very modern pieces, and quite a few mid-century and retro elements. Essentially, however, my home evolved throughout the years along with me and my taste.

And I often get asked where and how I was able to accomplish good design on a tight budget. I plan on starting a series of posts on how to design on a budget based on my experience decorating my house. I will take you through every room I have done and share with you my lessons learned and some ideas you may find interesting and inspiring. And, if you have any additional budget design tips or DIY ideas, I would love to read those, so please do share in the comments section!
