Living Room under $500

I am really excited to be introducing a new contributor to the blog today! Kimberly Moore is a fabulous former intern of mine and she is now running a design business of her own. Her blog is one of my favorites and I love the post she's put together for us today!

It can be difficult to stay within a small budget when decorating, but it's certainly not impossible! I've put together this living room inspiration board that came in right at $498.48 Not only is this room affordable, it is pretty to look at! 

Keeping a list of a few basic resources will help when beginning the design process. Don't forget to include these on the list >>>

Target // Ikea // Society 6 // Home Goods // Wayfair // World Market // JC Penny // Pier 1 // Etsy // Rugs USA // Urban Outfitters Apartment // Ebay // Local Thrift Stores 

Sofa: $230 // Target 5'x7' Rug: $80 // Target
Coffee Table: $20 // Ikea Lamp: $45.48 // Target
Pink Dot Pillow: $20 // Society 6 Floral Pillow: $20 // Society 6
Yellow Scallops Pillow: $23 // Society 6 3 Mirrors: $60 // Target

Kimberly Moore here >>> My favorite color is mint, I have bangs, and love a good pair of glasses! There are few things that make me happier than designing a gorgeous room, creating art, or throwing a smashing party. My blog, Third Floor Design Studio, has become a place to learn, shop, and be inspired. On any given day you'll find great sources for decor, simple DIY projects, or party planning essentials. So be sure to stop by my blog and say hello!
