When it comes to redecorating, the struggle couldn’t be more real. An area rug can cost more than two month’s rent, and the dreamy dwellings you’ve been re-pinning on the reg are more often than not the work of a professional. But with a little patience, some research and an e-savvy team of editors to lead the way, mastering an enviable abode is so easy (and better yet, beyond affordable).
