Million Dollar Decorating Bedroom Design

Bamboo Bedding

 

On BravoTV’s  Million Dollar Decorator, Mary McDonald decorated a guest house with a budget of $100,000. When the divorcing homeowner requested reducing the decorating budget to $50K McDonald refused, and said she wouldn’t have taken the job for ONLY $50,000. The completed project was beautiful, but as usual, High End Looks for Less will take it apart and see what dollar amount we come up with!

 

The bed should always be the centerpiece, and this one features an upholstered headboard, white bedding, and brown decorative pillows. We found a great headboard at TheHeadboardStore.com for $250, silky white duvet, sheets, and pillow cases all made from eco-friendly bamboo  for $360, and a brown quilt for the end of the bed for the bargain price of $25. Rounding out the bed area are two benches for the foot of the bed from Home Decorators Collection at $99 each. On the wall is a round mirror  for $154, and a set of  two framed prints from art4cheap at only $40 for the pair.

The last area to furnish is the dining/desk area which consists of a square wood dining table found at IKEA for only $149, a beautiful leather upholstered chair for $249, chunky wood candle holders from Pier 1 Imports at $40 for the pair, a fresh potted orchid for $40, and some tiny vases. Ours is a set of five for only $29.

 

So with all this bargain shopping online, did we come anywhere near Mary McDonald’s $100,000 budget? Of course not!The High End Looks for Less  grand total comes in at the paltry sum of $3593.  If you thought high style required a high budget,  Sensibly Chic Interior Design and High End Looks for Less are sure to change your mind!
