Beauty on a Bud­get

Cottages & Bungalows - - The Goods -

Work­ing on a tight bud­get, Sue dis­cov­ered some sur­pris­ing things that helped her save in the long run.

1. Know when to call in the pro­fes­sion­als. En­list­ing the help of an in­te­rior de­signer may sound like an ex­trav­a­gance when you’re ren­o­vat­ing on a bud­get, but it saved us con­sid­er­able time and money.

2. Do your home­work. Spend­ing hours re­search­ing coastal in­te­ri­ors on Pin­ter­est re­ally helped us get clear about the kind of “Beach house in the Hamp­tons” look we wanted. And try to track down his­tor­i­cal photos of your area; this could help if you need to re­place or re­fin­ish ar­chi­tec­ture.
