LET’S TALK BUDGET!
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.
