Tip of the Week: Save versus Splurge
TIP OF THE WEEK: Save versus Splurge
With the holidays coming to an end, we’re all conscience of our checkbooks. We’ve spent money on partying, dressing up, and giving to those we love! So when it comes to spending on our home, is there anything left?
Here’s a guide to what you should splurge on and what you should save on…
* Investment pieces you want to last, like a quality sofa that you’ll relax in everyday. Or mattress and bedding.
* Statement pieces that add individuality and uniqueness to a room, like a piece of art you love. Or a great area rug that adds color and texture to a room.
* Trendy furniture that will be out of style when you ring in the next new year.
* Accent tables. Remember Bombay Company (or am I showing my age?)…find a company like that and buy from them. In the local Charlotte area, Home Goods and At Home are great examples.
Finally, here are a few easy things to do now to freshen your home decor…
* Change out lampshades
* Rearrange your furniture
* Paint an accent wall
* Add throw pillows
With these easy decorating tips in mind, you’ll be able to update your home for the new year, without breaking the bank!
