Remember the HGTV show called Sensibly Chic? They took a $30,000 designer room and recreated it for about $2500. Did you think that they had some kind of special sources to do that?
Anyone can do it. Really! One of my favorite design catalogs is Pierre Deux. It is filled with beautiful French Country furniture and accessories. I use the catalog as a decorator magazine. You can order the free catalog here. Here are just a few of my "Sensibly Chic" versions of the original Pierre Deux item
