The latest issue of Domino features a bedroom with a hint of tropical style done from top to toe for $1248. Aside from gleaning inspiration from the specifics, a few general, budget-friendly ideas for any decor project can be found in the piece...
Some good budget decorating ideas from this project that will work for any room :
-Start with a basic piece and customize it. They used the IKEA Hemnes bed ($279), but added a coat of white paint.
-Add texture and pattern whenever you can. The fabric covered walls, hemp rug and the under-$5 basket really add to the tropical style of the room.
-Go with classic shapes. Pieces such as these x-benches ($165), read as expensive, even when they are not.
