When it comes to decorating one’s space, our priorities and budgets can change considerably throughout our lifetimes. What we’re into one season may be completely different come the next. Some of us prefer to spend more of our budget on the anchors of a room, like large furniture pieces to last for years, while others see value in accents that glamorize basic home elements that are considered part of the background. Regardless of your current design dilemma, there’s always room in everyone’s lifestyle for budget friendly and stylish decor. There are many places you may not have thought to seek out such splendid deals, so we’re here to spark a little creativity and treasure hunting excitement in your life!
We all need a place to sit and eat, but sometimes you can think out of the box and get stylish and creative results. Chairs meant for outdoor spaces can typically cost less than standard dining room chairs – especially during summer clearance sales. We found these adorable patio chairs on eBay for only about $40! They could easily be repainted and the cushions recovered for custom seating your guests will envy. Another high cost item that can be hard to swallow is an area rug that’s stylish and comfortable on your tired feet. You don’t have to settle for those synthetic, scratchy rugs you find at discount warehouses. Check out flash sites like Fab.com for some amazing and high design steals. This wool and silk blend below in a contemporary color palette was only $225 (retails for $1,200!) in 5’x8′! Lastly, don’t discount the power of a little elbow grease and ingenuity. We all know the fantastic furniture deals one can get at yard sales and places such as Ikea. While you can get some real longevity out of these finds, if you’re gentle and loving with your stuff, you may not find much that tickles your fancy. But, don’t give up hope! Websites like IKEA Hackers spotlight clever tweaks and transformations of the inexpensive furniture line from crafty people from around the globe – great inspiration! One budget friendly and stylish decor embellishment we found for furniture is a lovely fretwork from O’verlays – imagine the possibilities!
Regardless of your personal style, finding artwork that makes your space feel complete is a necessity. While the GreenBox Art + Culture family’s ultimate goal is to provide high quality fine art reproductions to every art lover’s home, we understand the tricky struggle it can be to find budget friendly and stylish decor. We feel you won’t find more detailed, hand-made art that so closely resembles the original artist’s work than our products. Through the years, we’ve added new categories to get these fine works of art onto more walls in larger and more affordable ways. Stretched canvas art provides a polished and sophisticated presentation, while our fabric wall decal material provides the same beautiful art in new ways with a lower price point. Our Designer Wall Decals, like “U Are Funky” by Melanie Mikecz, bring colorful detail and clarity to your walls in a fresh way. Our fabric adhesive material is much more durable and repositionable than the typical vinyl used in single color decals. Our Wall Murals, like “Poppies on Gray” by Rachel Austin below, bring fine art to your walls in a big way. With sizes 72×54″ and 54×54″ to cover a large part of your wall costing less than $200, creating a fabulous focal point is not out of the question. Lastly, our Letter Decals, such as “Screen Print Letters” by Methane Studios below, will most definitely make a statement in your space. With our Classic 17″ tall letters at only $19 each, and Epic sized 27″ tall letters at $39, you can say what you please to keep your decor and your budget completely on track.
