Give your home a designer touch– without the designer price tag

The brutal winter is finally over, and as you’re coming out of hibernation, you might notice your home needs a pick-me-up.

We spoke with some of our favorite interior design gurus to give you tips on how to welcome the warmth into your house without breaking your budget.


Window treatment


For starters, focus on your windows. The easiest way to do this is to change your curtains, said Polina Gorokhovskaya, owner of Polina Studio Inc.

“You can put sheers or something that brings the spring inside,” she suggested.

Hot colors this season are plum and violet in medium and light tones, so layer your sheers on top of those for a chic look.

If you’re into floral patterns, Ikea has curtains in that style for $14.99, Gorokhovskaya offered, and Urban Outfitters has some cute sets for around $50.

 Accent touches

Spread the spring light around by decorating with reflective accents, said Betsy Helmuth of Affordable Interior Design. The obvious way to do this is by hanging mirrors, but items like a silver Morrocan pouf or a metal tray on your entry console will add a personal touch.

Gorokhovskaya added that gold is making a comeback this year, and layering it with silver is on-trend this season as well.

Helmuth also recommends investing in one artistic piece to hang about your bed or sofa. A tip: Search on Etsy.
