Here’s a thought and recession friendly item that brightens up any home: IKEA’s fabric line for under $6 a yard! With dozens of graphic textiles to choose from you are sure to find one that suits your inner designer. My personal favorites are INGER and PETRONELLA. The bold, organic prints are sophisticated and elegant. They are machine washable and environmental friendly, made from renewable materials and with no optical brightener. Have a go at decorating this season sans buyer’s remorse. We certainly did!
