ShowStopper- There are certain things that you can do to decorate your home on a budget. Try visiting a second hand store or a flea market. You can often find beautiful antique bowls and metal fixtures that look very Mediterranean at these types of stores. Also consider visiting garage sales or looking online at sites like eBay and Amazon.
You can also decorate your home over a period of time. Only buy one or two items this month. Buy another item next month when you have the money. Over a period of a year, you will buy enough items to decorate your home. Buying the items over a period of time will ease the financial burden.
