Our apartment renovation completely went over budget, by like a lot. I wasn’t surprised, but my hubby was, so I needed to find ways to stay on theme (because, after all, we are building our dream home) and have it stay on budget as much as possible when it came to the home decor.
#homestyletip that saved us some major dough?!
It might seem obvious, but it’s easy to forget!
Print out, plan a mood board and set a budget for items in advance( ’cause ? adds up real fast? , haha)—everything from light fixtures, tiles, hardware, linens, mirrors, rugs, etc. Once you’ve narrowed down your theme for your home, it’ll be a lot easier to spot your fav dining table ON SALE as we did (more like moving sale)!
We lucked out on all the items we had on our mood board just because we were always aware of the budget and style we were going for. We bought sooo many pieces by fluke in store on sale or used/moving sales and various times during the year. Planning helped us manage stress (so key), kept us on budget and the theme!
Where to Buy Guide
We were going through the catalogue and I fell in love with the print instantly. We had to order 3 rolls to cover the entire entrance wall from top to bottom. We knew we wanted wallpaper in certain parts of the house, and I was definitely looking to create an impact on the entrance.
We paid 96euro per roll from an authorized retailer in Rome, and it was shipped from London.
We’re thrilled with how it turned out, so purdy!
Are you a fan of wallpaper? Did you enjoy the post? I’m planning to add a buy guide for the other parts of our house, stay tuned.
