Ever wonder what the most expensive home is going for in your home state? If so, you MUST check out
Hey everyone, it’s my first time writing here on Curbly so I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Linsi Brownson, I’m an interior designer and owner of the online boutique Redefine Home. Today I’m here for a little designer Q&A session. Send me your questions, anything from how to pair your grandmother’s antique settee with your contemporary home to creative uses for everyday objects. I’ll answer these in a follow up post next week.
Please leave me your question(s) in the comments. Make sure to include a photo (or a link to one) where possible. If I choose your question to the answer next week, Curbly will send you a free copy of all three of their "Make It!" eBooks ($30 value)!
My design philosophy is all about creating a home that is curated rather than decorated.

The best reaction you can get from your sweetie after she has opened her Valentine's gift is a squeal with delight. This roundup of affordable luxury includes such things that will surely produce the desired reaction and all are $100 or less.

Luxury kitchens are almost expected these days. Certainly in new construction. Ditching your digs to get the look you want isn't necessarily necessary. A few clever--and inexpensive--updates here and there can do wonders. Take these for example:
- Instead of replacing your laminate countertop, how about opting for a granite top overlay? It's less expensive, and only you will know it cost half the price.
We all know you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she chooses to decorate his or her house. What Lance Armstrong's house suggests is that he's the kind of person who likes order and doesn't tolerate b.s. It also suggests that he appreciates luxury of the masculine sort. I wonder if the furnishings are included in the price tag...which was just reduced to 10.5 million.
