I recently gave our living room a Hollywood Regency makeover using almost only estate sale and marketplace finds. It’s a thrifted, tufted, tasseled, fringed, velvety, chintzy, brassy and dramatic upgrade...on a budget. It's also a lot more my style than the very sparse and drab grey decor that we had before.
