For today’s Thrifty Thursday, I have a game.  C’mon….be a sport here …

Okay, below are three room design boards with similar colors and items.  You guess which is the least expensive, middle, and most expensive.

Pretty complicated game, huh?  Here we go (there’s an extra lot of spaces to give you time to ponder…and add drama(ha!)):

 

 

Is it this one?

Okay here’s your answer: #2 in the least expensive at $1080 (that’s including $40 extra to print and frame the etsy artwork download)

Or this one?

Least Expensive @1080

Mirror $35 @ Target, ottoman $89 on Etsy, artwork $6.95 on Etsy (digital download), sofa $799 (on sale) @ Home Decorators, side table $79.95 @ cb2, bookend $29.95 @ cb2

 

The Mid Range Room was #1 coming in at $2690 total:

Is it this one?

Mid Range @ $2690

Mirror $199 @ Crate and Barrel, ottoman $184 on Wayfair,  artwork $129 @ West Elm,  sofa $1999 @ All Modern, side table $149 on sale @ JcPenny, bookend $29.99 on sale @ JcPenny

 

And the most expensive was #3 @ a cool $4408!:

Or this beauty?

Break out the pocketbooks!  $4408

Mirror $494 @ Wayfair, ottoman $495 @ Serena & Lily,  artwork $125 @ Serena & Lily,  sofa $2399 @ Room and Board, side table $400 @ All Modern, brass hippo $495 @ Jonathan Adler

 

I think these rooms are proof you can get the high end looks at a much more budget-friendly price (good thing when you’re married to a financial planner!!).

If you can’t tell … I really want a grey tufted sofa, I am obsessed with gold, and I love bright pops of color.  These room design boards are just the start I need for designing our living room!!

What do you think?  Did you guess right, or did the rooms throw you?  I’d love to know…drop me a note!  Until next Thursday…
