Let's get at ease talking about money. Do you have a specific budget in mind for this project?
What do you feel comfortable spending on the following, to help me get a sense of where you are coming from:
Rugs: If you were buying an 8x10 rug for your room you would probably spend:
Under $1,500, my child is going to spill on it anyway
$1,500-$3,500, I want something that will look good
$3,500-$6,500, I want something that will last
Over $6,500, a rug is a piece of art for your floor
Art - It is time to decorate your walls, the art we will be hanging would, in your mind, cost:
$250-$500, Something that looks good, I won't get tired of and fills the space
$500-$1,000, A piece that is unique, something you won't see everywhere
$1,000 and up, I'd like an original or custom piece which may appreciate in value
Any other thoughts you would like to share on cost of specific items or overall budget? Are
there specific amounts you would not spend above on various items, or are there areas you
think are important to splurge on?
