BE SMART WITH SPEND­ING

Home Beautiful - - HOMES -

It’s all too easy to over­spend when dec­o­rat­ing a child’s room, so em­ploy a spend-and-save ap­proach to keep the bud­get in check. Melissa Lee of Young Folk ad­vises spend­ing on qual­ity fur­ni­ture, nat­u­ral linen, rugs, art­work frames, non age-spe­cific light­ing and clever stor­age. “What I save on is decor pieces,” she says. “I like to use toys as decor, es­pe­cially beau­ti­ful and well-crafted ones. Wooden toys and hand­made dolls are multi-use as th­ese can be played with and used to dec­o­rate the room as well.”
