As part of my ASPM (Accredited Staging Professional MASTER) training with the Creator of Home Staging, Barb Schwarz, my Final was to make over part of my hotel room with $100 budget using the existing furnishing from the hotel. I had a great time shopping at Home Goods (my favorite stores hands down!). It was quite a rush to do everything in a short time frame and a small budget. It turned out to be quite difficult to shop when I was only allowed to use $100!
Here is the Before:
Here is the After:
It was very easy to do. At first I had trouble pinning down what I wanted to do, there were just too many choices at Home Goods! But then I picked the color red as my theme and gradually started pulling accessories that I liked. I pulled everything I thought would work into the cart then started to eliminate what I didn’t need or out of place. Eventually everything came together at the last minute when I found the red chess-piece-like piece to complete my look. I followed the Rule of 3 which created high, medium, and low with the 2 red vases & the centerpiece. I also didn’t waste anything, the ribbon from the packaging of the centerpiece became the napkin rings on the brown napkins, which were folded with the trick I learned previous night at dinner from our server. I opened the chairs on an angle on purpose to create an open and inviting feeling. The last touches were the red pillows that I borrowed from the hotel lobby. The varying shades of reds also added depth to the scene.
This is a pretty fun & simple redesign project.
Pretty easy, huh? How about you? Send me your pictures of your own $100 Makeover Challenge & I will feature you on my site!
