While we do love the idea that a room's décor is never truly done, we also don't think this philosophy should come at the expense of a good credit score. But how do you keep your home feeling fresh without spending all your hard-earned cash? Take the 80/20 rule—which applies to everything from business to fashion to décor. If 80% of your room should stand the test of time (with neutral, long-lasting pieces), the extra 20% is made for fun, trendy accessories.
This season, refresh your décor all the while making financially sound decisions. Think you can't decorate with this year's biggest decorating trends under $100? Think again. We found the coolest accents that will bring your home well into 2017. Better yet, nothing is over $100. Just pick your favorite accessories and watch your favorite room transform with minimal effort and even less money spent.
Move over, Carrara. Colored marble is taking center stage this year, and even if you can't re-cover your entire kitchen counters in the stuff, you can get a piece of the action for $65 with this sleek bowl from Hawkins New York.
While a stunning curved velvet sofa might be out of reach, a pretty amorphous tray table in a trendy beige shade (yes, you read that right) is not.
Bright fresh hues are popping up in décor stores everywhere, and we're not mad about it. We're eyeing this picnic throw from West Elm.
Speckled dinnerware is vintage in the best possible way, and it's making a huge comeback as table trends take a more handmade turn. We love the H&M collection for its unbeatable price and cute looks.
Who needs an elaborate arrangement when you can get a similar effect with one simple flower in a minimal bud vase?
We used to associate incense with palm readers and children of the '70s, but sleek new incense holders are making us want to swap out our scented candles.
The wrinkled linen look is already taking over bedrooms everywhere, but the trend also extends to the table. After all, who has time to iron napkins in this busy day and age?
LED lighting isn't just good for saving energy, it's also all the rage in décor stores everywhere. Pick up your own LED pendant for just under $100.
If paint is the cheapest way to update your décor, use that to upgrade your walls, trims, doors, or even kitchen cabinets. Benjamin Moore's trendy Guacamole shade is our favorite.
