Are you longing for some design inspiration for your home? Wish you had a flair for decorating like you see inside celebrity homes?
Many celebrities hire interior designers and experts to outfit their mansions to the extreme.
But for most of us, hiring a professional interior designer isn’t a part of our redecorating budget.
Still, it’s possible to re-create interior designs like the rich and famous.
Here are 5 secrets for high-fashion, low-budget decorating:
#1 – Personalize your space.
Decorate with items that showcase your unique interests.
Even if you haven’t won multiple Emmys for an award-winning show, you can display your own bowling trophies, professional awards, and other achievements. In fact, trophies can make ideal bookends in a bookcase!
Do what the stars do and play up the things you love doing all throughout your home.
#2 – Decorate with white.
Stage some rooms in your home with a neutral or white palette. Then add in colorful accessories with a chair, throw pillows, or rug in those rooms.
In the bedroom, one secret to making your bedding look luscious is to include a second comforter in addition to white sheets. Make the bed look comfy and fluffy by placing another comforter under the sheets.
#3 – Create a cozy reading nook.
Carve out an area in an unused corner of your home and turn it into an earthy, minimalistic, and cozy reading nook.
Combine a built-in bookshelf, a basic bench, and vintage reading lamp to create the perfect place for your family members to curl up with a good book.
You can also get a comparable look by converting an empty space in the corner of a room or under the stairs into an inviting spot to relax — complete with a small table and a plant or two for ambiance.
#4 – Mix it up.
If your personal budget isn’t even close to a red carpet A-list movie star’s, you can still create an elegant touch inside your home.
One way is to mix high-end pieces you love with some wallet-friendly items. For example, have a few high-end pieces in an area where you spend a lot of time surrounded by a few affordable ones. This creates a balance in the room and your budget.
#5 – Go big in the closet.
You can create a warm and welcoming closet like you’d see inside celebrity homes while still having lots of practical usable space.
For example, a standalone dresser and an oversized ottoman can make your closet inviting and functional. Use it to display shoes, bags, and jewelry — while tucking away accessories, socks, and intimates neatly into the dresser drawers.
Feeling Inspired Yet?
Recreating the look inside celebrity homes is certainly doable. It doesn’t have to cost a lot to duplicate the decorating ideas of celebrities in your own home.
By using the 5 design ideas mentioned above, you’ll get high-dollar celebrity looks without the price tag!
