When your budget is bird feed ….

… but your decorating dreams want to soar. Birdhouse Design’s Jessica McKay focuses on affordable design. She believes that everyone can have a gorgeous home regardless of how much they have in their budget. Her’s is a reuse and reinvent mantra both for its cost effectiveness and the green approach. You never know what’s lurking in the attic or basement especially when a lick of paint and some new fabric will transform the ugliest of ducklings. I love work like this because so many of us can’t afford a house full of high end designer pieces. Sometimes a guiding hand is all we need to transform our homes with what we have.

The pictures are lovely… I adore that chalkboard door.

WHOA holy crap giant animated Febreze commercial in the middle of the screen! Wasn't expecting that. You know your site is successful and popular when ads are competing with the blog content for space. I know you have no control over those ads and I'm not complaining… in fact I think it's a testament to how good of a job you're doing with this site! Keep the great pics coming!

all of it…I love everything here…thank you, thank you for the introduction….xo t

Last picture. That is a truly inspired redesign. The more I look at it, the more I am impressed with what she did. Those pieces are typically the first thing to go, and she has made a room using them that is coherent, comfortable and looks like something the coolest girls I knew when I first moved from home would have done. I just love it.
