Back in 2010, John and I were approached by the New York Times and asked to work with them on a column called “On the Cheap.” We were given several videos from Times readers detailing renovations that they would like to see in their homes–albeit on a minimal budget–and John and I were tasked to choose one reader whose space we would overhaul. We settled upon a lovely couple, Robert and Judith HoSang, whose style seemed to dovetail with our sensibility. The HoSang’s goal: Transform their bedroom into a Paris-style retreat for $1,500. $1,500?! Yes, $1,500!
John and I were up for the challenge! And everyone was super happy with the results…
Read the story, below, then tackle your own renovation project. It’s amazing what you can do with limited ducats. As John and I always say, “Good design need not be expensive, just make it expressive.”
