The Beni rug has been a decorator item ever since Billy Baldwin used it from the 1930s to the 1980s. One with a pedigree from Morocco can set you back thousands, but this good looking modern version is affordable and comes in every color.
The Greek key motif is still going strong. This mirror is a big bang for the buck. I have seen it in person, and it is really nice.
Adding a little retro flair is a must. This table/floor lamp combination looks so good and much more expensive than it really is.
The gold bookshelf is making a comeback. This is this hottest item on the design blogs now. This $40 shelf from Ikea looks as if it belongs in a dorm — but only until you spray paint it glam gold.
Billy Baldwin made an art form out of the brass bookshelf. This one from Ikea is $70, and it can really look posh with a coat of gold paint.
Great bar stools are so hard to find at any price. This wishbone-back stool is inspired by an iconic design.
Tray table mania! This one is for the traditional girls and guys. You can afford it, I promise.
The lantern craze has cooled a bit, but it is still around. This one is a blogger favorite.
Nail heads and studs (oh my!) are still hot as a decor element. I have seen this chest in person, and it is gorgeous.
Retro pieces are part of the mix in all bloggers' rooms. This new char is fresh, has great lines and is good to go.
Check out this comforter for under $25! Some of you have dorm rooms that would look great with this on your beds.
