Decorating My Dream House

We are soon moving to our "dream house". I need some decorating ideas (cheap). The house is more formal traditional. I lean more
toward antique.

Thrift stores are your best bet for furniture and accessories. Think outside the box. For example: wood dressers with no mirrors can go in the dining room as a sideboard or in the foyer. Brass planters can be filled with potpourri for any room. Put glass beads or gravel in large glass vases and add tall twigs and or grasses for dramatic, yet cheap, arrangements.
