Can I Have This Job?
March 10, 2011
One of my most favorite things to do in life (other than snack on Girl Scout cookies by the dozen and ignore the scale) is to surf the net or discount stores hunting for high end looking décor for a great price. Raise you hand if you share my love of snagging something stylish for a bargain? Oh, all of you.
I’m a huge fan of Style at Home and I frequently pop over to see what’s new and inspiring. There’s always something! Seleta blogged about this space earlier this week, and it’s one of many in a favorite series over at SOH called ‘High/Low’ where they feature two practically identical spaces, one designed for top dollar, and the other at a much lower cost.
Take for example this garden room. Here is the High version at $9,937 and Low version to the right at $3,109
. . . and another.
Can you tell which is which?
I want this job.
How fun is this, to find all the ‘low’ end versions of the ‘high’ end décor?
Then I start wondering, could I get the ‘Low’ down even lower? It’s a little game I play to amuse myself. How about knocking off a few hundred more with just this chair, this fabric, and this acrylic console? Don’t get me started how much could be saved by a little Craigslist hunting and a few DIY projects too. Can you tell I am easily distracted?
All of the accessories in the spaces are listed, so the bonus is you can find a few good sites for affordable ‘look for less’ décor just by reading the source guide.
What about you, want to play along?
Think you’re savvy at spotting the ‘High’ and the ‘Low’ spaces?
Take the High Low Quiz over at Style at Home.
Then feel free to blame me that there are dishes piling up, and your laundry isn’t folded.
