Affordable brands to keep Obamas White House residence stylishJanuary 21st, 2009 - 2:17 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, January 21 (ANI): Americas new first family may have to do with a limited budget to transform the White House into their new home, but that would not stop their designer from making it chic.
Decorator Michael Smith, working under a tight budget of 100,000 dollars allocated by Congress, revealed that he would use “affordable brands” to redesign the presidential mansion to make the Chicago family feel content in their new home but not without style.
And, according to interior experts, achieving high style should not be a problem even on a budget.
Reasonable furniture and accessories from stores like Target, Kohl’’s and Ikea can help add panache to any interior, be it in the White House or any other house, they added.
“You have people like Target and Ikea that hire extremely talented designers to design their furniture for them and meld into that design process, making it affordable,” Fox News quoted John Gidding, a host of HGTV’’s Designed to Sell, as saying. (ANI)
