High – Low , Get The Look for Less

Below are two rooms decorated by Margot Austin.  The first room costs $15,536.00.  The second room costs $5,952.  Can you tell the difference?  All the sources are listed, so you can compare!  
It is hard for the average person to get the same affect, but an experienced designer can nail it every time.  It is smart to hire a designer to achieve the look you want.  A designer can work within your budget, that is if you are realistic with your budget.  Designing a room does cost money!
