19 of the Best Home Decor Shops and Galleries in New York, According to Top Designers – Architectural Digest

NiLu

“As a longtime Harlem resident, I believe the presence of mom-and-pop shops is vital to maintaining a sense of community in our neighborhood. I’ve known owners Katrina Parris and her husband, Mark Pinn, for several years—when they first opened [now-shuttered] Katrina Parris Flowers—so it’s good to see they’re still servicing our area with their current shop NiLu, which promotes artworks, decorative housewares, home fragrances, and gifts by local makers and creatives.” —Keita Turner

Sarah started her journey in 2014 making $26K as a journalist. Over three years she side hustled, lived frugally and made moves in her career to pay off her debt faster.

Can you tell a little about yourself for people who aren’t familiar with you and your YouTube channel?

I’m Sarah Wilson, also known as Budget Girl on YouTube, where I talk about living a frugal and fun life on a budget. I documented paying off my student loans on a low income over the past three years and am now living debt-free, but still frugally, while pursuing my financial goals.

How much debt did you pay off and how long did it take you?

I started off with $32,640ish dollars in debt and paid thousands of dollars in additional interest as I was working the original number down. It took 3 years and two months.

You’re a writer and editor, why start a video channel?

Because I write and edit writing all day, I did not want to spend more time doing that when I got home – hence the vlog over a blog!

Why the name Budget Girl?

I wanted to commit fully to budgeting my income and getting out of debt. (The former really is the secret to the latter.) It wasn’t the first name I thought of, but it was the best that wasn’t taken already!

Logistics aside, it would be very hard to maintain the moniker if I wasn’t doing the best I could at budgeting, so I thought it would also hold me accountable.

How many videos have you done?

Just over 450. 🙂 It’s crazy to think I’ve done that many.

Update: Sarah has way more videos now with over 5.6 million views!

How do you budget?

I use an Excel-type spreadsheet that I created in Google Drive. It’s very basic and doesn’t require a lot of formulas or spreadsheet acumen. Anyone with a Gmail account has access to drive and it can be accessed from any computer or phone – so my budget is always with me.

How can someone else set up a budget in Google Drive?

I have a copy of one of my budgets available in this video, where I also describe how I budget. Anyone can copy the budget to their drive and use it or change it to meet their needs.

[embedded content]

What were some of your side gigs that helped you in paying off debt?

I delivered pizzas for a while on the 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. shift at Hungry Howies. I did secret shopping through SecondtoNone and Marketforce. I bought items at yard sales and sold them online or at consignment.

I also ruthlessly purged my belongings and sold anything I didn’t need. I’ve babysat, dog-sat, dog- trained and helped people organize their spaces.

I have made the most money Youtubing though. My channel currently makes me about $1,000 per month through monetizing the videos with Google. It has been a slowly growing thing.

I didn’t make any money during the first year I was making videos, but it really took off during the final year of debt and I was able to put all my YouTube earnings toward my loans.

What was your biggest setback during the last three years?

Being intentional with your money and having to log every dollar you spend has a wonderful side effect of really coming to understand what life costs.

So if an unexpected expense came up, I dealt with it and made a plan to never have to stress out over that same thing again. So when my car needed sudden work, I started a car repair/replace sinking fund and after that always had at least some money set aside to deal with costly car issues.

The same with medical expenses. So after budgeting for about a year, I was never shocked when a rainy day came and I had umbrellas a-plenty. This allowed me to transform potential setbacks into minor aggravations.

I was aggravated that I couldn’t put as much money to debt that month, but planning for inevitable expenses allowed me to never have to walk backwards.

Instead, I would say that for all three years, I never was set back, but occasionally moved forward more slowly or even had to stand still for a moment.

During this time I sinking funded two cross-state moves and paid cash for a new-to-me used car. But I never went into more debt. I anticipated the storm and slowed my debt payoff temporarily to save up and pay for it.

[embedded content]

What are some of the things you’re going to do now that you’re debt free?

I plan to save about $10,000 as a fully funded emergency fund, as per the Dave Ramsey Plan. This will allow me to pay for most issues that may arise with cash on hand. If God forbid, I was to fall ill or lose my job, I would have a healthy nest egg to ease or deal with the situation.

I do also plan on traveling some and generally enjoying life a little more than I allowed myself to when I was on a scorched earth budget and trying to get rid of my debt.

I’ve already started buying the good cheese, chocolate, and coffee at the grocery store instead of the cheap stuff. 🙂 I also plan to save for retirement, invest and generally make smart future-oriented money decisions.

What advice would you give to someone starting their debt-free journey?

It’s not going to be easy, but it will absolutely be worth it. Sacrificing now to live better later will be the best decision you’ve ever made, and looking back you won’t care about the times you had to say no to eating out or the home decor you didn’t buy, because you’ll be free from debt and will have so many more options.

Don’t put this off. You can do it. Keep trying. Definitely, get plugged into a group of like-minded people that will keep you accountable.

There is the financial YouTube community, which I can’t recommend enough, but also financial websites and Dave Ramsey groups online that are encouraging and inspiring (Dave Ramsey Baby Steppers with Compassion and Dave Ramsey’s YouTube Crazies are two very good groups).

If you’re looking for ways to get started cutting your budget like Sarah then try out some of these things I do to save money:

  • Groupon and LivingSocial for deals on activities.
  • Shopping through Ebates when making any purchases online will get you cash-back from virtually any retailer.
  • Apps like ibotta and Checkout51 to save at grocery stores and other big box retailers.
  • ThredUp for nice secondhand clothing at steep discounts from retail.
  • Use Blink to save on prescriptions.
  • EyeBuyDirect to save on prescription eyewear.
  • Energy saving methods like low-flow showerheads to reduce our utility bill.
  • Sites like Restaurant.com for dining deals.
  • I take advantage of free trials at gyms.
  • Use healthcare sharing to save big time on health insurance.

How to Incorporate Collections into Your Home

Your home should be a reflection of you and your family. Incorporate your personality into your home decor by displaying family collections. Your collections tell stories that deserve to be told – and represented throughout your home.

Get creative and find a place for all of your cherished collections. Here are a few sample ideas to get you started. Modify them according to your collection of choice.

1. Stamps: Do you have a bevy of vintage or one-of-a-kind stamps? Frame pages of stamps. Display your framed collections on mantels, in your entryway, or even create a gallery wall.

2. Crystal Figurines: Display your figurines in glass cases or on a shelf near a window. The light from the windows and glass will reflect on the figurines and make them sparkle beautifully.

3. Matchboxes: If you have a collection of fancy, beautifully designed matchboxes, put them out for show. Group them together on an end table or in an armoire with glass panels.

4. Antiques: One of the most popular collections to display in a home is antiques. Whether it’s antique furniture, picture frames, or something as small as a breadbox, place them in their appropriate room for added decor. Display them in different rooms so that you remember the story behind them whenever you see them.

5. Travel Souvenirs: Save travel souvenirs like museum tickets, plane tickets, and even currency. Put them in memory boxes and frame them throughout your home. Hang a map with pins representing every place you’ve traveled as a family.

6. Any other quirky item: Any collectible has the ability to be hung up on a wall. Creating a gallery wall is the easiest, no fuss way to display your items. Grouping similar picture frames, silver trays, or any other like items on a blank wall in your home creates a focal point of beautiful decor.

Displaying your beloved and timeless collections throughout your home is not only a great way to display your interests, but it’s also a great conversation starter.

What are the home decor trends for 2021 – Atlanta Journal Constitution

“We are seeing a trend towards homeowners wanting to create zen sanctuaries in the home,” said Imani James, certified award-winning interior designer and owner of Imani James Interiors. “A quiet oasis type of environment designated for peace and reflection to recharge and recalibrate. These small secluded areas are filled with natural elements such as plants and crystals and are scented with warm uplifting scents from essential oils and candles. We are adding doors where there wasn’t one previously and creating peaceful nooks wherever we can.”

ExploreThese are the latest design trends for 2021

Keeping it fun by mixing finishes

As LaMont Bynum, owner of consignment furniture boutique Rite At Home, put it: “don’t be boring… mix it up.”

“Out with the old model of everything must match. Today’s rule is mix it up to add interest and fun,” said Bynum, who is also principal owner/interior designer of Bynum Design Group. “Mixing metal with design makes a statement in a room and can help bring different looks to a space. Ultimately, the finish you choose should fit in well with the style you are trying to emulate.”

To infuse a modern appearance in your room, Bynum said a polished look focused on matte finishes is usually the go-to, while traditional rooms favor fixtures with oil-rubbed finishes.

But there are also things that have gone out of style.

“When it comes to furniture, buying living, dining and bedroom sets are a thing of the past and provides no life to a room,” he said. “Find one foundational piece and start designing. It is like a woman finding the perfect black dress.”

Defined spaces for work and relaxation

Working from our dwellings means our home lives have blended with our office lives. As such, many residents hope to outline rooms for work and play, sepearting the two in an effort to obtain work-life balance.

“A real focus, and one that we definitely see continuing through the coming years, is a more defined and fuller use of every space in the home, whether it be for work, for relaxation, or for family activity,” Grossman said. “While most of our clients either already had home offices or spaces easily converted, we saw a wonderful trend toward adding bright spots of color — rays of happiness — as those spaces were organized and brought to life for full-time use. We saw an emphasis on creating comfortable spaces for the family to gather once the work and school day was done.”

Grossman noted her company converted a dining room into a family dining lounge, which included a custom banquette with chaise lounges, ideal for reading or watching a movie after supper. Outdoor areas and sunrooms were transformed into areas where people can have socially distanced get-togethers.

“I can only see this embrace of home continuing as the world opens back up, with newly found enjoyment and respite as continued themes,” she said.

Transitional rooms and luxury living spaces

As with many things amid the pandemic, what clients seek from home decor has changed. Ashley Miller, a leading interior designer in the southeast and owner of Ashley Miller Design, said clients no longer ask whether or not their home makes them feel “comfortable, alive, or secure.”

Now, they ask more specific questions.

Aside from moving away from open floor plans, Miller said she also notices “clients desiring spaces that can transition them from one place to another — be it from a home office to a sitting room, or a living room with the kids, to a quiet, relaxing room designed to let them sit in peace and quiet.

“One room might be airy with light tones, while another close by may be a combination of stronger colors with more pattern,” she continued. “In other words, what used to be large, open floor plans with a continuous theme running throughout is being replaced with multiple rooms and transitioning styles that are curated depending on the mood the client wants.”

Clients are also seeking ways to decompress at home rather than taking a seasonal getaway.

“We all wish we could travel like we once did so now we are looking to bring the travel experience and luxury into our everyday lives,” Miller said. “For instance, clients are now trying to mimic the experience of having just stayed at a fine boutique hotel — whether it’s in the dining room, bar/entertaining area, or master bedroom. This has been a developing trend over the past few years but the pandemic has only accelerated it. Why not replicate that same experience at home?”

Home Decor – Take a look at a five-bedroom Dallas home with three spaces for work or studying

This Dallas house might solve the modern-day problem of living, playing, working and learning in one location. It has a lot of space and plenty of privacy in each room.

While open floor plans have been popular in the last few years, the pandemic has changed buyers’ desires, said listing agent Marti Voorheis of Dave Perry-Miller. Now, people want to have their own space while our homes act as the command centers for our careers, education and so on.

She said the home has several rooms that could be “whatever a buyer needs them to be.”

The home at 5634 Caruth Blvd. offers just that. Within its 6,410 square feet, you’ll find five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. It also has two living spaces on each level and two laundry rooms. There are three areas great for working from home, with one in the closet beneath the stairs.

The home is on the market for $2,990,000.

“It has basically the best of what everyone is looking for today in Dallas,” Voorheis said.

LRO Residential built the home in 2015, and the seller has since outfitted the home with luxury add-ons like designer wallpaper, lighting and electric shades on every one of the windows. The seller also finished out the attic, which provides additional living space on the second floor.

The primary suite and a guest suite sit on the first floor of the home, and the remaining three bedrooms are on the second floor. All have en suite bathrooms.

On the first floor, the kitchen flows into a living room and dining area. There is a second living room on the first floor, along with an office and another dining area.

The two living spaces on the second floor include the finished-out attic and another living space with its own wet bar. Throughout the home, bright, light and airy elements are on display, from the home’s abundant natural light to the minimalist color palette that could be flexible for future buyers’ customization.

Outside, there is patio living space, a pool with a spa and additional green space. The home also features a 3-car garage.
