Is a more recent friend that I wanted to share with you. Her is full of design inspiration. I love seeing all the projects that she works on in her own home along with client inspiration boards.
I’m so happy to be guest blogging for Camila while she’s away, and even happier to be sharing my favorite ways to spruce up your home for under $25 (being that I live for great bargains!). Here are my best tips:
#1. Tall curtain panels from IKEA: The quickest, and cheapest, way to add instant drama to your room. I love that these come in the longer lengths and are only $19.99 for the pair.

I recently framed these bird cards for my bedroom, using black utility frames from Michaels that come in packs of 2 for $7:
#4. Fresh Flowers and Greenery: Add life to your space with fresh flowers, or for a longer lasting arrangement, use potted greenery. I added a small flowering topiary and fern to my breakfast area (both for less than $15 each!):
