Budget Designer Finds

A girlfriend of mine asked for some help styling and revamping her Balmain apartment.  Her loungeroom has a huge brown suede chaise lounge which is only a few years old and they collect lots of books and finds from their travels.  She likes geometrics prints but didn't want to spend too much $.  

Yesterday I was walking through Target looking for some storage baskets and found the perfect cushions and lampshades for her place! 
(They are even on sale this week!)



Blue chevron & geometric cushions $20

Lampshade $15

We're also installing an Ikea expedit shelving unit to match existing furniture, which I can't wait to style with all their colourful books and travel treasures!


Ikea Expedit $189

 And some vintage travel posters with blues/whites/yellows in white frames like these above the lounge....







And some books on the coffee table....
