The Dow may be rising
, but people are still a little gun shy when it comes to throwing down the zeros on new things, however just because The Well Appointed House
is known for luxury products doesn’t mean you can’t find some excellent steals.
Here are just a few examples:
1. Mirror Mirror On The Wall, Which Is The Less Expensive Of Them All?
The Asolo Mirror?
If you can’t tell then maybe we shouldn’t either…. Juuuust kidding. The Asolo Mirror costs less at $575. It is a traditional oval shaped mirror with hand carved detail on top. The Adam mirror has a similar detailing on top but is done in a antique goldleaf and silverleaf finish. Both give the same romantic and worldly look to anyone room, just different price points.
2. Step Into The Light:
Chandeliers are a staple in Well Appointed Homes everywhere. This Swarvoski Strass Crystal Chandelier measures 36” wide by 46” high and makes quite the impression as any $6,000 chandelier might (by the way, the photo is from the dining room of Melissa Hawks…it was taken at her home in Westchester outside of NYC, you can see her hand painted Gracie wallpaper that was custom designed for her in the background of the chandelier). Similarly this Heirloom Swarovski Strass Crystal Chandelier packs the same impact for less than half the price, though slightly smaller measuring 36” wide and 32” inches high. The later chandelier has the same designer brand name crystals and would be ideal in a smaller space where maybe the former might overwhelm.
3. Mirrored furniture is HOT in the design world. It evokes that modern elegance we see plastered over all the magazines and at The Well Appointed House we have a vast selection of mirrored chests, consoles, desks, end tables- you name it. This Mirrored Three Drawer Chest is $2,310.00
while this Three Drawer Chest is $996. Same amount a drawers, almost identical space, but one is nearly half the price. Either chest would look amazing in your contemporary space regardless of the price, it’s just nice to know that you can get the look at any budget. 4. Country Chic has always and will always be a major trend in home décor. These needlepoint pillows draw upon that theme only the Objects D’ Art Needlepoint Pillow costs $60
while the Topiary Garden Needlepoint Pillow
costs $90.00. Though not a drastic difference, cutting corners in little places adds up or can help you save to get that splurge item you are lusting after.
5. Make It Personal
Monogrammed items can actually be really affordable and add an element of personalization to your home.
These personalized plates can make for great keepsakes for your children and you and don’t have to break the bank. These Personalized Ceramic Plates
can fit your child’s full name, birthday and birth weight on them and are also gender specific, all for only $46.
On the other hand these Plastic Personalized Plates are only $25 and have an array of different designs and monograms to chose from. Both also make a great affordable gift; nothing says thoughtful like monograms.
