The old saying, \"You get what you pay for, \" doesn't always hold true. Sometimes you pay a lot for an item only to find that what you bought is substandard. Especially at the price you paid. You might then feel as though you were 'taken'. Other times the price of something may seem quite reasonable, even low, and you're amazed at how well the item performs or how long it lasts. This can be a pleasant experience knowing that there are still some good deals out there. But, as a rule, good quality just costs more. There's another saying... \"Good thing ain't cheap and cheap things ain't good.\" There may be a certain wisdom in these old adages.
Step #1: Choose a Style. Here are some ideas of different styles you can use to decorate your whole house or just one room. * Cottage: This home furnishing style calls to mind a cozy cottage tucked away in the country or by the lake. Cottage style means white couches and chairs, or white wicker furniture with floral printed cushions. Pastel colors, soft lighting, and gauzy curtains create the cottage look, as do antique accessories and patchwork quilts. Complete the look with landscaping: nothing says country cottage like a stone walkway and a garden full of flowers and herbs.
Other. You can marble any room of the house. When you are done with the kitchen and bathroom, move to the living room, dining room, den, and bedrooms. You can add marble accents to shelf mantels, marble to top of a piece of furniture, marble to bottom 3 foot section of walls all the way around a room, or even marble whole office desk unit as pictured below. If you want to get real creative, I have seen 2 extremely unique and beautiful headboards that were marbled in the master bedroom.
* Traditional: This classic home furnishing style is elegant but not extravagant. Floral patterns look great on your couches, chairs, curtains and pillows for the traditional look, as do plaids and damasks. Heavy drapes and mahogany dining room tables also work well with this look. Put the final touch on your traditional home with accents like china, crystal and framed landscapes. * Victorian: This style will make your house look as beautiful and stately as the mansions of Victorian England. Choose small but elegant couches and wooden armchairs with silk covered cushions in striped or simple floral patterns. Do not be shy with velvet and rich brocades. Porcelain and dried flowers will also help you get this look across nicely.
One word of advice: if you fall in love with a piece of furniture just because it is beautiful, buy it. Everything in your home doesn't have to be practical and a truly beautiful piece of furniture is something you will enjoy for years. Use it as a focal point, light it and decorate it and don't worry if it doesn't have half a dozen uses. These pieces become your treasures and you will move them form place to place and design rooms around them.
