DECORATING your home can quickly burn a hole in your pocket.
So you'll be glad to know that an interior designer has revealed the six items you can scrimp on without compromising on style.
Nick Lewis currently works in Vancouver, Canada, and often shares his professional advice on YouTube – and in one video, he revealed where you can save money on interior pieces.

Just like lighting, cushions, throws and other soft fabric accessories can totally elevate a room.
They are often a design staple – but that doesn't mean you have to fork out hundreds to make your space look luxe.
