A great place to start is IKEA. Long known for it's affordable and predictable pieces, they are now being known for clever and chic design that will partner well with both expensive and less expensive items. Always on trend, they have key pieces to suit any decorative home...

I've certainly saved my favourite till last... buy second hand. I regularly take a trip to my local Salvos and search through bric-a-brac, furniture and fabric to find the hidden gems that are always there, if you look hard enough. Shopping second hand is a great way to add decorative items and good design to your home for less. Occasionally, you'll find a piece that might need a bit of work but never fear! You could have just found a piece that will stay in your family for years and years to come... isn't that worth a bit of work?
