Brit Decor: Shoestring Style

So here's the thing; we are officially out of recession and moods are generally more upbeat as city bankers begin to regain some of the colour in their cheeks. However, before we go breaking into those champagne cocktails it is still worth taking a look at the budget-end of the interiors market for some surprisingly high-end finds.

Whatever the financial climate, I have always enjoyed a little savviness when it comes to my own purse strings. It's great to splash out and treat myself on the occasional luxury item for the cottage but I also get a strong sense of satisfaction from sourcing some bargains. In reality I tend to save my hard-earned cash for investment or statement pieces and mix these with more affordable accessories, which also applies to my wardrobe. Either way, some clever sourcing can leave your home looking like a million dollars, even if you spent a whole lot less. 

This week I have been quietly impressed my finds during an online trawl of interiors goodies, and despite being a low-cost range, there is actually a wealth of style on offer from, in particular, some of the British Supermarket chains, with Tesco coming out on top. So here is Brit Decor's very own round-up of some of this season's hottest colours and trends - shoestring style.
