I once had a client tell me I was a Fabric Snob.
She was joking at the time and seriously…I wasn’t the least bit offended…because it’s the truth.
I work with fabric on a daily basis and I like working with quality fabrics! But quality fabrics, along with all home decor and accessories, come with a price tag.
How do you decide where to spend your decorating dollars when there’s so many things to spend those dollars on?
Personally, being the fabric snob that I am, as well as fabric is my go-to inspiration source for new projects, I don’t mind using more of my decorating budget on fabric.
For me it’s a priority. But it’s not a priority for everyone.
This graphic from Laurel & Wolf offers some guidelines for those items we should consider as an investment and those we can save our money on.
Our decorating needs and budgets are constantly changing.
As our priorities change. As our families change.
And many times the budget isn’t equal to the need…but you find a way to make it work.
We’re in the process of updating a few things around here that have been the same for the past 10 years. Last year we finally purchased a new sofa and chair (which had been the same for 21 years) and replaced the rug (same one for 10 years) a few months later.
Currently, mastering my decor budget is a big priority as I finish the new window treatments for the kitchen.
What I thought was going to be one change is sparking ideas for more…and more…and more! 🙂
