Don’t let your children, animals or budget keep you from living with luxury. Filling your home with chic touches doesn’t have to cost a fortune and can even be pet and kid friendly. The trick? Finding small way to introduce wow-worthy details and incorporating durable fabrics and materials.
Living in a home with two dogs and plenty of entertaining, I know how little moments and small chic touches can make a big impact. Having those little things front and center in your home can create a happy haven.
Try a funky table lamp for a desk or a fabulous tray to keep accessories organize on your desk or side table. They will instantly lighten up the mood as your work through a stressful day.

Don’t forget to power of fresh flowers. Splurge on a beautiful bouquet and arrange them in a glitzy vase for an instant bit of luxury. an age-old styling trick (and still a favorite of mine) is to add fresh flowers. They will instantly add life and soften up the area. Fresh flowers also appeal to all five senses and can be changed with the seasons.
It can also be tempting to overload a room that must accommodate lots of people. Provide plenty of seating that can be moved around easily like stools, benches and ottomans that can do double duty. This will keep your space flexible since smaller stools can be easily stowed under a console table or by a fireplace. Discount retailers often carry chic pieces that can easily be recovered in a durable fabric to withstand high traffic and frequent use. This is one of my favorite budget friendly tricks for adding a high end look to any room.
