In fashion "spending versus saving" means that by investing in a few quality pieces you can get a lot of mileage out of, or that make a big statement, you can elevate a look even when you've skimped on everything else. At home, investing in a few quality or statement pieces can have the same effect.

Where do you choose to spend versus save at home? Do you invest in quality sheets or is it a great chair that elevates the look of a room? Conversely, where are you willing to skimp a bit? I tend to hold off on spending on things like throw pillows and duvet covers that I'm likely to change out more often.
