Styling on a Budget

I know I recently raved about the latest issue of Lonny and I guess I will continue to carry on! One of my favorite homes featured was that of designer Vanessa De Vargas. Her California home is the epitome of California chic. Vanessa's tips for designing on a budget are immensely helpful and full of great ideas to get the most out of your wallet. I hope you enjoy the tour and walk away feeling a bit more inspired.
Love the bamboo chair, the tufted sofa and the bamboo coffee tables.
The headboard and the lamps are my favorite items in this room and the sea-foam blue on the walls makes me want to run to Home Depot. I know, I really need to control myself and embrace my white walls!
By far my favorite image from her home. Love anything Kelly green and this cabinets are very high on my list. The vignette above ties perfectly with the bamboo mirror and the white gourd lamps.

Zebra print! Perfection is the word I was looking for! Enough said.
