Happy Wednesday! Sharing with you today a guest post from Sarah of Chevrons & Stripes, one of my absolute favorites for interior design, inspiration and all around creative intel. She’s helped me discover so many great shops, artists and more and I’m sure by this post alone you can see why I adore Sarah. Personally I can’t wait to meet her this September when I’m in NYC for a Lucky Mag-hosted blogger conference and the start of fashion week. This girl is such a doll and is an inspiration for following her professional dreams (head to her site to learn more)! I’m just honored she’s sharing here today….
Interior Design Statement Makers
Hi TAGG readers, Sarah from Chevrons & Stripes here covering for Alyson while she’s off on a well-deserved vacation! When Alyson first reached out to me about creating a budget friendly interior design themed post, I knew exactly what direction I wanted to go in. As a student, I’m certainly not making huge home investments every day or even every year, but I can be fickle and my style is constantly evolving. When a floor-plan switch up (which I do quite often – you can imagine how my fiancé loves that…) doesn’t satisfy my yen for newness, I find that the addition of a few little accessories can do wonders. Done right, accessories can really change the look and feel of a room without having to overhaul the big ticket items like furniture, rugs, etc. Here some favorite items at $100 and under to breathe a bit of new life into your space on a budget!
1| I am a sucker for all things John Derian and these sea plant coasters are no exception ($100), 2| this bronze objet can function as a stylish paper weight on your desk or coffee table ($20), 3| you can’t go wrong with a stripey pillow in a punchy color ($56), 4| from the master of pottery, Jonathan Adler, this pinch vase is perfect filled with blooms OR on it’s own ($78), 5| brass palm candlesticks bring a splash of Palm Beach chic to your dining table ($26), 6| this lacquered box has the effect of agate without the price tag ($86), 7| a rosy set of bookends will warm up even the barest of shelves ($75), 8| trays are great for organization and creating pretty vignettes around your abode – I’m currently loving this rattan one($42), 9| a turtle shell dish perfect for holding baubles ($78), 10| a unique kari herer print to spice up the walls ($30).
Thanks for having me Alyson!
