Since I get a new apartment on my own, I can fully enjoy my passion for interior decoration. My budget is limited but I find that it is even more fun to find some tricks to obtain a beautiful interior without giving all your money away. Here are some stuff that are now to find at my place.
Those lamps, for instance. One costs 99 euro, the other 750 euros… One is from Ikea, the other designed by Louis Poulsen. I think it is like to chose between a bag from Chanel and one from Zara. It looks quite similar, the price is really different and the feeling too: on one hand you feel happy to have something looking nice for a reasonable price, on the other hand you are proud to own a real designer piece… Your choice!
Since all the walls were freshly painted in white, I wanted to keep it clean and decided not to bring any colored paint. But white can be like “clinical” and one need to make it cozier to feel at home! I like the idea of the wallpaper designed by Michael Clarck (see picture below), so I hang several curtains I ordered by H&M home online over a whole wall of my bedroom. It actually looks nicer than the wallpaper: the picture on the curtains is a photo whereas the wallpapers shows a drawing of a wood.
I needed 3 curtains à 14,99 euro/piece for the whole wall (+ curtain rod) while a roll of wallpaper costs 82 euro.
With a bit of imagination a ability to seek the websites, one can find nice things, don’t you think?
