Our Interior Design Inspiration: Using Your Budget Creatively

One of the challenges of interior design projects is balancing design dreams with realistic budgets. Our clients will fall in love with a piece of furniture or a fabric that could either increase what they are looking to spend, or end up limiting the overall design. We believe that beautiful designs are worth the investment; however we make sure our clients’ funds are used wisely and efficiently. We had a recent example of this delicate balance in a living room remodel. Our clients desired a soothing, transitional design featuring neutrals, patterns and texture rather than bright color. Soft blues and pops of red were introduced for contrast and interest, including a blue rug with bits of red in it, as well as a stunning piece of original art featuring red. We came across a gorgeous embroidered silk that brought the whole color scheme together, but at a steep price. By using it on just one throw pillow to sit on a couch placed vertically between the rug and the art piece, two elements were tied together perfectly! While expensive for a throw pillow, we were able to bring in a much needed element without pushing the budget out of balance.
