Frugal Interior Design - Achieving Smart Style

Frugal Interior Design is all about Achieving Smart Style. It is about pulling from various design styles, utilizing reclaimed items as home decor, and infusing natural elements to create a casual yet inviting look. I love meshing modern design with industrial and rustic decorative elements. Incorporate a bit of your personality into your decorating.

If you follow some basic decorating principles
and refer to my free interior design ideas, tips and photos,
you too can create a coveted look.

Design Smartly. Just as design styles vary, so do the costs associated with achieving them. A high price tag does not necessarily equate to better design. I've renovated, designed and decorated the interiors of many properties and have discovered a few decorating tips, tricks and ideas to transform them while maintaining a strict budget.

Be Eco-Friendly
Green interior design options will help you save in the long run.
