Interiors experts, Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan show you how to mix chainstore basics with more individual finds to achieve the home of your dreams; how to track down bargain copies of modern classics; and how to customize chain-store basics or mix them with junk-shop finds. The first part of the book, The Elements, looks at color, pattern, and fabrics, and moves on to cover window treatments and furniture. There are sections on storage and display, lighting, accessories, flooring, and materials used in the home. The second part of the book, The Spaces, includes chapters on relaxing, cooking and eating, sleeping, and bathing areas and home offices. Advice is given on how to find treasures at markets and salvage yards. Cheap Chic is an indispensable guide for anyone furnishing their home on a budget.

PN Creative and attractively displayed decor for the eclectics among us.

I was disappointed by the lack of images and ideas. There were a few, but nothing to really get a feel for the room, or how-to. I love vintage and inexpensive items, but i wasn't thrilled with this book.

There is nothing chic about any of these ideas.
