Good morning, friends. First and foremost I want to thank everyone who joined the conversation on Instagram. We had an open and honest discussion about grief and I was so touched by the comments. Hearing your own stories was very special. Today I am introducing a new series that I hope you will find very helpful. Your husbands might love it even more because it’s all about saving your money. Here is Volume 1 of Pay This, Not That.
I plan on sharing great options for higher end products. While you may notice a difference in quality when you choose not to go super high-end, sometimes it doesn’t matter at all. Nor would anyone know the difference. And more money left in the bank is always a good thing. Let’s get to it.
First up is this gorgeous ring chandelier. Yes, the $1889 version is more substantial looking because of the wider ring. But for $140 I am willing to take a chance on this baby. I ordered it yesterday for our master bedroom. I’m so excited for it to arrive.
THE KISMET RUG
Adore this rug. I am toying with adding this amount of color to our loft space. Navy and pink are gorgeous together. While the Caitlin Wilson rug is fantastic, my wallet says yes to the $400 version. That is a huge cost savings and by the time you style the space and bring in furniture it’s the overall look that counts. I am all about saving and splurging in a room but this may have to be the save item.
Always loved seeing this pop of navy and pink in Rachel Parcell’s kitchen. Love this color combination so much.
I have always loved these chairs. Williams-Sonoma has gorgeous pieces and these chairs are no exception. But Living Spaces (a west coast store) sure does a fantastic job with the dupes. We bought two of these for our master bedroom and LOVE them. Very comfy and they look great. At half the price it was a huge savings. And they are almost identical.
We are still working on this space but have two of these chairs in our sitting area and love them. You can see more of our bedroom progress here.

Thinking about everyone evacuating and taking shelter during Flo. Hoping and praying the storm isn’t as bad as predicted. Stay safe, friends.
