Have you ever fallen into the Overstock vortex? You know, where you’re searching for something and you just keep clicking on the “people who viewed this also viewed” widget? And before you know it, your search for a mirror has turned up bedding and lighting, etc, etc? This happens to me A LOT and I’m always so amazed by what I find on Overstock. You can find some seriously high style products for a fraction of the cost of what they’re usually knocking off. I always read reviews and generally pass on anything with under 3 stars BUT sometimes you have to be careful…a great product could have a low rating because it has just 2 reviews, one great, one terrible.
I have had terrific luck sourcing products for clients and myself on there and sometimes I think “I bet I could do a whole room just with Overstock products”. Well I accepted my own challenge and did just that – I designed a whole bedroom using 100% items found on Overstock. Bedrooms are one of the highest priced budget rooms in a house (right up there with living rooms). You need a whole lot of furniture to finish a bedroom, not to mention all the other “stuff” like lamps and curtains and yes, bedding! If you’ve ever furnished a bedroom you know, it gets EXPENSIVE. The grand total for everything here? Under $4,000. Now I’m not claiming you’re going to find that in your couch cushions or anything but I genuinely think this is a great looking room for $3,700! A queen sized upholstered bed (not just the headboard!),silk drapes, an 8×10 rug, a dresser, and even a little sitting area with chair/lamp/side table! It’s serene and largely neutral with just a few hints of color which is definitely how I prefer my bedrooms. I think I’d paint the walls something a little deeper like Ben Moore’s Revere Pewter but it would also look great with a pretty blue (I love Palladian blue).
