I think what you spend on pieces should depend on your lifestyle. I have three cats. To spend a fortune on furniture that they will just scratch seems silly. With that said, I have been blessed by family hand-me-downs which includes a solid wood china cabinet, dining table and Hitchcock chairs. Eventually, I will have them refinished (or dare I say it painted) to remove the cat scratches. Until then, I will chalk it up to character. The rest of my home is Ikea, Craigslist and other miscellaneous hand-me-downs. We did buy a moderately priced sofa and chair which have both suffered from the cats.

On a side note, my favorite decorating find was a glass lantern style light fixture for which I paid $4 at a tag sale. It now is hanging proudly in my foyer.

Great article topic and ideas.... The most critical step is the budget. The second most critical step is to prioritize what is most important to you. This will help you decide on how to allocate funds appropriately to each area. Thanks for sharing these practical fundamental ideas on decorating.

While I appreciate all of the work done and the finished project, I must say that a parked airstream in a driveway or yard can really encroach on neighbors' personal and visual space. It can change the landscape for the worse. While owners think they are beautiful, having another structure crammed into a lot can be devastating to other people around who are also trying to enjoy the neighborhood.

Sad to see that most of these pretty plants are not going to live in our zone.

Denold, I'm zone 3 (Calgary, Alberta). There are lots of big leaved foliage plants that are fine here - ligularia are great for shade, I have a couple of angelica gigas plants that have HUGE leaves, many of the hostas, brunnera (already mentioned in this article) are great. Also you can sometimes pick up tropicals for good prices - I know HD and Rona sometimes mark them down - you can pick them up in the winter months and put them out in the summer. I have not a great deal of luck in bringing them inside in the fall but if they are cheap, I'm ok with that.
