Wallet-Friendly Interior Decorating Ideas

December 26, 2014

Inject some new styles into your home by purchasing a few simple statement accessories, rather than a complete re-vamp of the entire house.

Not only is this a great idea if you’re on a budget, but you can also pick and choose from a variety of different online stores if you want something personalised.

Monogram cushions

If you’re a fan of black and white colours, choose a monogram throw pillow for the couch or the bedroom. Most websites such as Etsy offer monogramming at no additional cost, but you could be looking at 2-3 weeks for delivery.


Keep your books looking stylish with some book-ends which are perfect if you have quite the collection. They come in many shapes and sizes, especially if your bookshelf has been custom-made for your home.


Whether you’re into prints or watercolour pieces of art, there are a variety of ways to spruce up the home with artwork. Invest in a large, framed work of art for the entrance to your home, or simply choose a 30x30cm artwork for your bedside table.

Fake plants

Not only is this a great idea if you can’t commit to the real thing, but fake plants are also easy on the credit card as well. You can find something cute for your home which doesn’t require nearly as much maintenance (except for collecting dust!).

Coffee table books

A great 2-in-1 purchase which is ideal for both the living room and the bedroom. Keep some of your favourite design and fashion books around for an instant conversation starter, or simply as instant inspiration for another home renovation project.


Rather than using a clear vase for your flowers, choose a funky print to spice-up any room. This way, even if you don’t have any fresh flowers it can still look great in any part of the house!
