There are some lovely photos here. I loathe the overuse of the word "investment" when it comes to decorating and fashion - maybe we could invent a new word for buying something that cost more but should last a lot longer than the cheaper option? That doesn't make a pair of shoes or a sofa an investment!

Lately it feels to me that buying a loaf of bread is an investment. I would love nothing more than to "invest" in a redecoration of my home, but the idea is so far out of my budget that I may as well plan a trip on one of those space ships. $2200 for a sofa? It might be worth it or not; it might last 100 years, but if you don't have the money you have to make do with something else.

I agree with MollysMom - spend within your means and do what you can to make it all suitable for you and your family. What does it matter if somebody else disparages your choices?
