Jennifer Lopez fans may love the superstar’s domestic style, but they very likely can’t foot the $18 million bill of a Hamptons mansion! Don’t fret — with help from budget-friendly decor expert Michael Craig, the “beachy, European elegance” of Jennifer’s new digs can be yours for much, much less. Here are some tips from the Dinette.com founder on how to decorate like a diva on the cheap!
-- On your lamp table, put some shiny conch shells and some beach glass in a silver tray to brighten up your space.
-- Fill a tall wood vase with firm beach reeds to evoke the essence of the sea.
-- Organize your magazines in an oval basket made of natural sustainable seagrass.
-- Place a pair of metal birds on your console table. They won't wake you with their singing, but they will add to the relaxing comfort of your space.
-- Find a classic metal trunk to serve as your coffee table. The vacation-home vibe is yours for the taking, and you can often scoop them up on the cheap at thrift stores, garage sales or even as toss-aways from Mom's attic.
-- Add some fun and color to your space with colorful cotton rugs. It's the perfect way to create any seaside theme!
