Now comes the budget. It has been
set at $15,000. Because the budget
does not afford the entire horne to be
furnished, the main area of concentra-
tion will be the living and dining room
since these will be the most liveable
ares.
An area rug is a good beginning.
Sisal is very economical and creates
an interesting visual texture rug, $925.
A coffee table could be flanked by two
sofas in a simple cotton ticking stripe
to keep the price low, $1,200 each.

No matter how large or
small the budget, the first
thing to do is a floor
plan.

Splurge on a painted accent chair
with a vivid patterned seat cushion,
$950.
A custom made six panel screen in
the living room, covered in a richly tex-
tured tapestry fabric, becomes the
focal point of the space, $1,500. Pillows
are also a good focal point. An expen-
sive hand-painted pattern tussah silk
with twisted cotton cord trim gives the
sofas a complete look; 4 pillows, $850.
A simple valance in an intense fabric
dresses the window at $475.
A long wall between the living and
dining room becomes a great space
for wall to ceiling built-in adjustable
bookshelves. Because this is a major
traffic area, narrow bookshelves are a
logical solution, $1,200.
The large windows in the living room
are reflected in the floor-to-ceiling, wall-
to-wall, mirrored dining room wall. A
glass shelf with decorative wood
brackets creates ample space for a
serving buffet, $800.
A simple expandable wood dining
table can withstand the abuses of
everyday living, $1,200. Four Scan-
dinavian washed wood chairs with
upholstered seats, $500.
Accessories can make or break a
room. Allow at least $1,200 for
Unusual
accents.

decorative objects such as Chinese
wedding baskets and stacked boxes
make fur great end tables.
A good rule of thumb when working
with an interior designer is to begin
