Today we're sharing a recent "Design to Go" project we completed for a client who presented us with a fun challenge–design three spaces all under $10K! You know that we are big believers, that great design doesn't have to break the bank! Our clients were looking for a family friendly space that was both whimsical and layered with color and pattern. So naturally, Ashley Whittaker's beautiful Connecticut Hideaway, shown above, was the perfect jumping off point! We scoured some of our favorite sites like One Kings Lane, Serena & Lily, West Elm, and Wayfair to find great pieces all at budget-friendly prices. Scroll down below to see our picks for her family room, breakfast nook and dining room.

Don't forget to shop even more of our "furniture favorites", "rug favorites", and "art favorites."
