Hi cuties! Since fall is always a great tie for a home refresh, I figured now was a great moment to share my favorite tips on how to decide what to splurge on and what to save on when it comes to furniture and decor. Ultimately, we all have our own budgets and ideas about which items are going to warrant the biggest spend—but I find that keeping one simple rule in mind is super helpful if you’re feeling stuck in a decision-making loop.
“The best way to think about what to splurge on vs. what to save on is to identify what is going to take up the most visual weight in your room—that could be two coffee tables, that could be a sectional, that could be a bed…splurge on those.”
