Great Design Can Be Stylish and Affordable!

I'm always looking for new and inspiring design ideas that won't break the bank so I'm loving these eye-candy ideas that bring unique sensibility and style on an affordable budget. 

Vertical shiplap paneling with molding and trim sets the perfect stage for this simple coat rack for an entryway, but it's the rough cut hewn wood frames that make a simple, stylish statement. Try your hand at making your own frames from scrap or old reclaimed wood.

Storage. Seating. Stylish. Adaptable. Dress-up and organize your room with wooden modular storage drawers or cubby units. Give everything a place and place everything away for a clean, organized and stylish room. Shop for prices and selection similar to these units at Wayfair, Home Depot, Ikea, and Target, for a start.

This small room is big on style. Begin with a sofa and chair and introduce throw pillows for color and personality, and a throw for style and comfort. Add a personal touch to artwork by framing pages from a family journal or history. Accent tables not only add style to a room, they provide space for a lamp, books, and those special accessories that bring your room to life, and they don't have to be expensive when the budget it tight. Begin by shopping for stylish accent tables at these sites: Target, Wayfair, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Walmart. And don't forget to shop the clearances.

Store in style with wicker trunks with lids. Here are just a few of the many places to find great wicker pieces for storage - Ikea, Kirkland's, Hobby Lobby

 This small apartment looks and feels spacious, inviting, and is full of fun color and inspiration. These Scandinavian-style pieces give this small area a clean, timeless look. To get a similar look, check out the two shopping sites below!

These floating shelves save space and look chic. You'll find floating shelves at a variety of places, or buy the hardware and make your own natural wood shelves. Just be certain to check the hardware for weight restrictions.

Are you looking for a unique shopping experience? Here are two places you may not have heard about, until now, that is! Joybird is a collection of handcrafted furniture that's also affordable. Its upholstered seating is endlessly customizable with nearly a hundred fabric options, so you can design your space exactly as you see fit. The sofa shown above is the Preston Sofa.

APT2B is another unique and affordable furniture company that is made in the USA. The brand specializes in apartment-sized furniture. I particularly love its line of side tables and accent furniture.

Shop. Organize. And do it again.

Great design and style doesn't need to be expensive. And inexpensive items can look great and stylish. I hope you've been inspired by these great ideas!

Have a wonderful day!
