Ideas for Travelling When You’re Flat Broke

Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it’s lethal”. The best thing you can do for yourself is travel.

Today’s post, by Guest Alex S., is sharing a few budget-savvy tips on how Continue reading “Ideas for Travelling When You’re Flat Broke”

Bougie on a Budget: 5 Smart Ways to Budget-Friendly Home Décor

Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: I have always been obsessed with home decor. I started my love of IKEA at a very young age & even contemplated going to school to be an Interior Designer. Let’s not even start on how obsessed with Pinterest I am. Even though decorating your home or even freshening up a room can be costly, it doesn’t have to be. As part of the monthly ‘Bougie on a Budget‘ series, today’s guest post from Julie Austin at My Bed Comforter is sharing her 5 tips on how to achieve a beautiful space on a reasonable budget.

Home décor is a big thing for everyone; it is something that takes a lot of time, attention and requires lots of money as well. Have you ever thought of ideas how you could decorate your home at a low cost?

The following are five smart ways to budget-friendly home décor, have a look:

[ Use Carpets ]

Instead of the expensive flooring like marble and wood flooring, you can use carpets. There is a huge variety of carpets available in the markets; you can choose one that comes in your budget and use it at home. Carpets look decent, and it is overall a great option. You can use rugs as well. Look for the rugs online or when they are on sale, get colorful rugs for your living room, drawing room and bedroom.

[ Convertible Furniture ]

You can use convertible furniture for the decoration of your house; you can buy convertible sofas and gliders for your living room. This is the best thing that you can do staying on a limited budget. If you have kids at home, purchase a convertible crib and when your child grows up, convert the crib into a full-size bed. Amazing, isn’t it?

[ Use Wallpapers ]

Wall paint is something quite expensive. If you go for a single coat, it will fade away in less than no time, and if you go for double coats, it will cost you more. The best solution for this is to use the wallpapers. Wallpapers look amazing, and they are not that expensive. If you choose the correct wallpapers for your space, trust me, it’s a game changer. So go for it, and I am sure it will make your space look more than great.

[ Bottle Displays ]

So the crystal pieces and vases are too expensive? And no doubt, they are! Here is how you can fix it, go for the bottle displays. You can buy artificial flowers and use old vintage bottles to display them. Keep them near the windows, on the kitchen table, on the shelves of the living room and similar places. The colorful bottle will add glam to your space in few seconds only, and the best part about it is that it will cost you literally nothing. Artificial flowers are very cheap and can be found everywhere these days so utilize the empty bottles you have at home and create this magical look.

[ DIY Artwork ]

And how can you forget about artwork? The artwork is a must when it comes to the decoration of the house. You can make paintings of your own with the help of YouTube tutorials and hang them around. You can even make frames at home. All you need is papers, colorful paints and a little creativeness for this. Another thing that I would like to suggest you here is to try the glass painting. Yes, you can paint mirrors and pieces of glass; it will make your space look richer than it actually is.

I hope this article helps. Have a good day!
