Problem is most of these people are so loaded down with money they have trouble raising themselves from their original Eames chairs. But not really realistic for us in the normal world, and on shows like 'Million Dollar Decorator' (from what I have seen anyway) the decorators seem to be more financially solvent than their Clients!! Which tells me something about THEIR jobs...
1. In L.A clients have truck loads of Interior Decorating Disposable Dollars,
2. I need to move to L.A NOW!!!
3. I need to CONSIDERABLY up my fees!! ha ha
But Realistically the amount of money needed to achieve these results is out of range for the average bird out there.
So what do YOU do if you want the designer look but don't have the designer bucks to throw at a decorator? Well if you have a clever decorator you'll find most looks are achievable on a "workable" budget. Workable meaning realistic. Realistic meaning achievable. Achievable meaning not this; " Melinda I want to decorate my whole home in a resplendent rococo manner redolent to the Winter Palace in Russia! and I have $15,000.00!!!!......" Silence from me as quietly leave house.
I can do fairly well on a tight budget....but!!
WE HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY AND WE ARE DELICIOUS XX
So Moral of the story.
Go see your local lovely decorator and ask what you can be achieved...don't be scared, we are friendly and don't bite...usually :)
Have a great weekend.
I'm off to a Mad Men party tonight and am getting my hair pouffed out as I type.
Will have to pad my bra but my hips won't need any help they're plenty curvy.
