I designed this apartment (a rental) a few years ago and was able to achieve a terrific look on a relatively modest budget, purchasing from retail stores. The full residence (Greenwich Village) is on my web site: www.marciabutler.com

Here is how I did it:

Chairs from Crate and Barrel

Sleeper sofa and ottoman from Classic Sofa – fabric was $20 per yard.

TV cabinet from Room and Board

Area rug from ABC – 40% off

Curtain fabric was $25 per yard – I did have the curtains made

Shades from Smith and Noble

The lamp behind the sofa on the desk console – $70 from Crate and Barrel.

You do not have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful home environment. It’s all about knowing where to shop and more importantly, how to put it all together.
