One of my favorite things to do is to find something I love, that’s knock your socks off beautiful, and then figure out how to get it for so. much. cheaper. I want my home to look put together, high-end, and with luxurious pieces mixed in with a casual, family-friendly style. But to achieve those high-end looks, you’re going to spend unless you get creative and search for equally high-quality pieces at a much lower price point.
This week, I’ve been creating DIY Pinch Pleat Curtains. By doing it myself with IKEA curtains, I’m creating a beautiful backdrop to the entire front of my house…for a FRACTION of the cost it would be to purchase from a store. It’s been a simple process and I’ll be sharing a full tutorial the next couple of days.
In the meantime, follow along on Instagram as I show you step by step how to achieve this style all on your own!
I shared some of my favorites on the market this week with my series Buy It Over Build It: Curtain and Curtain Rods, which I hope can be a great resource. I scour my favorites on the market and provide it for you to find a style that you love and would have a wonderful place in your own homes!
But what if you already have a great idea of what you want? You have it nailed down to fabric type or pattern, color or level of sheerness. I’VE GOT YOU!! I’m beginning a series today that will take high-end options with a variety of different colors, textures, or patterns, and I’ve found great dupes online for FAR LESS! The reviews are wonderful and the price points are even better.
Today’s the first edition of Sunday Save Vs. Splurge and we’re talking all things curtains!
Beautiful pieces don’t need to be costly. You can find luxury and quality at budget-mindful price points and I hope you were inspired today to capture a look in your home for much less money!
