We’ve all been there – decorating is expensive. But with the right resources, there are ways to make it less so. In this series, I will attempt to show you how items similar in style can be wildly different in price. Sometimes it’s worth the splurge and sometimes, it’s worth digging to find a nice equivalent.
I adore this room. Designed by Sara Ruffin Costello, it’s set in a Downtown Manhattan bachelor apartment (seriously, which single girl wouldn’t want to date that guy)! It’s light and bright but refined; it’s simple but it mixes periods and styles; and it can be yours for $13,499 or $591. Quite a difference isn’t it? Let’s play a game: where would you splurge and where would you save?0
