Botanical . Home . Renovation

As I was browsing through the "Before & After" section on Design Sponge this morning, I must admit that I little twinge of jealousy hit me. I got wide-eyed as I looked at photo after photo of Jennifer Grey's House Reno. The botanical style is EXACTLY the kind of thing I'd like for much of my own home:

While seeing such a gorgeous home is inspiring, it's also frustrating. I don't have the budget to just remodel everything all at once (which is probably the position that most homeowners are in). So the question for all of you readers becomes: how can you can create a cohesive design scheme when you have to buy and renovate rooms a little at a time?

I like the new blog layout!

I think purchasing items in similar colors for each room helps to create a cohesive design scheme. Some colors I carry throughout my apartment include turquoise and red.

omg... LOVing this home as well. And I have no clue how to accomplish a re-do a little at a time. I will be watching the comments here for tips. (I like BrianneLee's tip of carrying a unifying color throughout...)

By the way - loving the 3 column layout. I've been wanting to do that for awhile - but haven't been able to figure it out. It looks GREAT!!
