Rug shopping can be such a hassle. Rugs are important because they can tie together a room perfectly.

Name: Jessie Ruane , boyfriend Ryan, and Dusty the pup Location: Prospect Heights — Brooklyn, NY Size: 1000 square feet Years lived in: 1 year, renting I share my Prospect Heights loft with my boyfriend, Ryan and our puppy, Dusty (@simply.dusty). When we moved in, we quickly realized filling a 1,000 square foot (estimated) loft was going to be expensive. Since I don't have the luxury of filling my apartment with West Elm (ahh I wish!) I started researching elsewhere. A little over a year later, I've filled my home with affordable finds, Ikea hacks, and hand-me-downs. The only thing in my apartment that I can think of as a "splurge" would be our Crate & Barrel Sectional, which we found on Craigslist for 1/5 of the price. READ MORE »

Whether about polka-dot blouses or gold hardware, you know what they say: Trends come and go. You may hate that Pepto-Bismol pink bathroom in your fixer-upper, but we can all but guarantee the original owners installed it because it was in fashion, and not the cheapest tile in the store.

Growing up, it never really felt like an official family party until my dad and uncle retired to the twin tan recliners in my grandparents' living room after dinner, while my grandpa settled into his own rusty orange recliner on the opposite side of the room. Within minutes of sitting down and kicking up their feet, all three would be sound asleep. How they could sleep through the sounds of six shrieking children pretending to be wolves, I'll never know. It must have been the chairs. READ MORE »

This kitchen was super cozy and sun-soaked, and it boasted an ample and intriguing island/peninsula hybrid—pretty sure that's what an isthmus is—but it had a few shortcomings: The finishings were getting worn, and the freezer was a full 70 years old. Now it's light and airy, and full of personal charm and quirky objects. READ MORE »

We just revealed our most recent original makeover —this time a budget kitchen renovation in a small town in Illinois. If you missed the full kitchen reveal , head over to see all the before and after shots. We wound up spending under $6,000 from head to toe, soup to nuts, which we're feeling pretty good about, especially given that the house sold less a week (four days) after we shot the final kitchen. Want to learn the budget breakdown, and hear all about the cost-cutting, penny-pinching decisions we had to make? READ MORE »
