High/low decorating strategies

Updating a guest bedroom doesn’t need to deplete your savings. With some clever shopping strategies and creative flair, you can orchestrate a fabulous, cost-effective renovation. One Hilton Head Plantation homeowner headed to HomeGoods to find accents to complement the more expensive Serena and Lily furniture. Here’s how you can replicate this success and refresh your own guest room by combining higher-priced furniture with lower-priced decor.

Snooze in style 

It’s wise to stock up on extra bedding for your guest room. HomeGoods offers a variety of bedding options, from sheets to duvet covers, at wallet-friendly prices. Look for high-quality brands like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. When selecting bedding, opt for materials with more natural fibers for better breathability and moisture-wicking properties.

Illuminate your space

Choosing the right lighting can enhance your room’s ambiance without straining your finances. In the lighting aisle, consider the shapes of lamp bases and shades. The homeowner chose wider lampshades to spread light evenly, enhancing the overall brightness of the room, while narrower shades are ideal for focused tasks like reading. Explore various styles, textures and patterns in lamp bases to add to your room’s aesthetic.

Rug harmony

Rugs not only anchor a room’s decor but also blend color and texture. Be mindful of costs; rugs can be pricey. The homeowner wisely selected two complementary rugs from HomeGoods for the guest bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom rug’s floral pattern inspired the pink and gray color scheme, while the bathroom rug doubles as a stylish bath mat. These thoughtful choices ensure cohesion and functionality while keeping expenses in check.

Dog Butt Hooks for house

Add whimsy and functionality to a guest room with fun hooks. Tying into the pink color scheme, the owner found these dog butt hooks on Amazon. Quirky yet functional accents add a touch of personality to a room, ensuring that guests feel welcomed with a dash of humor and style.
