Design on a Dime: Decor Inspiration for a Stylish Home with Color

Looking for some decor inspiration but don’t want to blow your budget? We have just the inspiration you need from Design on a Dime NYC participant designer, Beth Diana Smith.

Design on a Dime, founded in 2004 by Designer James Huniford, challenges interior designers to create unique room vignettes curated with donated merchandise from well-known home decor brands and artists. All merchandise in these one-of-a-kind rooms is then sold at charitable prices to design-savvy attendees. In 2016 Housing Works grew the event nationally expanding it to Miami, Florida for the first time. 2018 marked its most successful year: Raising a combined $1.6 million in support of the Housing Works’ mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS.

Since its inception, the event has raised over $15 million. With two locations, Miami, and New York, Design on a Dime will bring together an estimated 100 interior designers, over 800 top home decor brands, and nearly 6,000 guests.

Below we have the beautiful work of Beth Diana Smith who was selected to participate in this year’s NYC designer vignettes.

This reading nook is absolutely stunning. The pieces of art are perfect for a little girl’s bedroom.
I am a sucker for a great bar cart. This one is absolutely adorable and perfect for a small space. Not to mention it is on wheels! Drinks on the porch or patio!
The pendant lighting and sculpture wall anchor the room with gold accents paired with the deep blue walls. Every bit of perfection here!
Can’t get enough of this unique vase and centerpiece. A vase is an easy way to elevate a room to the next level without blowing the bank.
