Design Myth: It Has To Be Expensive To Be Important

Of all the myths out there, the one that’s hardest to dispel is that great design = expensive design. And that if you don’t have a blockbuster budget, you should just accept that your home isn’t going to be “enough.”


That couldn’t be further from the truth. While yes, expensive pieces tend to mean high-quality craftsmanship and materials, they’re not a one-way ticket to design success. If you’re decorating on a budget, you can still implement beautiful personal style without going broke.


Take for instance, the Otomi pillow in Nate’s old New York home: a $9 find from Mexico.
