This is the 1st post in a 3-part series on decorating a new home.

No Budget Left Behind


Now you see it, now you see it again - but for less.

You want it...but sometimes, you want it for less. We totally get it - and you can too. To help you bring home inspired design on any budget, the bluGloss Design Team found six great look alike pieces in a range of price points. Who loves you, baby? 

Forget the Lincoln Bedroom: Buy a Sleeper Sofa Fit for a VIP

Design with confidence at

A comfortable, stylish sleeper sofa is akin to the Holy Grail. When (if) you find this space-saving gem, you better hold on to it for life. 

bluGloss Chief Designer, Matt O'Dorisio, weighs in on sleepers that won't break the back (or the bank):

In the Mood

Dinner rezzies? Check.

Valentine? Check.

Box of chocolates? Check (albeit b-o-r-i-n-g).

Come-hither lighting? Check.

For those of you with kids, a lock on the door? Check.

A mood-setting boudoir? (crickets.)

Still living with hand-me-down bedroom furniture, or a not-quite-intentional mix-and-matched situation?

Well, we say, "No more"! It's time to bid adieu to book crates from Ikea, and wish a warm hello to luxe linens and chic decor.

Thinking about revamping your space, but stopped in your tracks by fear that quality (well-made and fashionable) design will break the bank? Fear no more - we're here to prove that beautiful product is available for any budget (even yours). 

Below, the bluGloss Design Team share their look-alike picks that represent a range of prices. 

The DWR sofa is a brighter, bolder color but both convey the same aesthetic - modern, clean, red. We bet Don Draper would be satisfied with either.
