Again this month we have another Washington Post (Wa Po) House Calls feature where the talented designer Suzanne Price of Suzanne Price Design did an excellent job of re-configuring a dysfunctional family room into one that the whole family can enjoy.
To tell you the truth it was tough to recreate the look on a budget ‘coz a lot of her pieces were catered to budget conscious folks like me. Still here’s my take keeping most of the accessories the same.
Dollar wise comparison
Wa Po’s Splurge version – $8,009
Wa Po’s Save verison – $6,109
Mine – $4,238, a savings of 31% over their Save version!
The Budget breakdown
