When it comes to expressing our style through various channels like how we dress and decorate our home interiors, there’s a common perception that to truly express your character in this way, you need a matching budget. We often look at the featured homes of celebrities with a bit of envy because we know they essentially had no limits in terms of budget to express their true character through their styling.

Sometimes, they even come out with it explicitly, citing how they never wear the same outfit twice and perhaps how they redecorate their home interiors at the first whiff of the new season entering.

It’s a little unfair for us with average budgets to try and model our own character expression through style on the modus operandi of the rich and famous. It isn’t just unfair because of the financial advantage they enjoy but also because celebrities hardly ever pay for all the stuff they get, especially some of that stuff intentionally broadcast for the public to see. It gets given to the celebs so that you and I can aspire to have it all, except if we want it, we must go and buy it all.

In fact, celebrities often have a lot of unopened goods, whether household interior decor items or clothes and other accessories, some of which the average person looking in on their lives would pay some good money for.

If you are not working with a celebrity-sized budget but still want your home to look stylish without breaking the bank, there can be a smart approach. Right from the start, you can think about designing and customizing your home interiors in a way that stays sophisticated and trendy for a long time. In this case, working with a custom home builder can allow you to add your personal touch to every aspect of your home, from wall colors and flooring to lighting fixtures, and roofing. This way, you not only get a home that meets your expectations and looks chic but also one that stands the test of time.

When talking about interiors, one of the prominent materials and textures that could be used in a residence is woodwork. You can use engineered wood alpharetta (or elsewhere) for house flooring; create an accent wall in the living room and bedroom to create focal points; and install chandeliers and hanging lights over the dining table for pleasing aesthetics, among other design ideas.

Such changes in your house can help you plan a timeless interior that could be considered a fresh style throughout the year. Don’t stress yourself if you can’t reach the ceiling to hang the chandelier or are allergic to paint, and thus cannot carry out the DIY painting, just hire the help in the form of a handyman and you will be good to go; looking online with keywords similar to “handyman in my area in Minneapolis” could be helpful in this regard.

You can further go through listed the points to see what other measures you can adopt to have a trendy house style.

Buy to Sell

Get into the buying and selling business, even if on an informal basis. For clothes you could open up a boutique store, with some of the clothing clearly indicated to have been worn once or twice and “pre-loved”. This so called “second-take” market is quite a big one actually and you can get in on the action too, perhaps going beyond clothing with it and also turning your focus to interior decor items. You can even do it online…

Seasonal Decorating

Yes, you’re encouraged to take a leaf out of the books of the very celebrities who enjoy an unfair advantage by way of the financial might they have to keep their particular style fresh. Seasonal decorating (for interiors) means you don’t have to bring out everything and display it all at once. A few interchanges here and there will go a long way in keeping things fresh.

Buy Unique Pieces

If you’re on the market for contemporary table lamps for example, there is perhaps no better way to keep things fresh than to go for those pieces which are totally unique, like one-of-a-kind items which aren’t mass produced (if at all) to the point that they’re all over the show when they’re hot and trending and then suddenly go out of flavour when everybody gets sick of them. If it’s unique, it’s always fresh and can never go out of fashion because it was never in fashion to start off with.
