Luxurious Designer Touches

March 25th, 2019

Living a luxurious lifestyle doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There are a few tricks and illusions you can incorporate into your home to give the appearance of living large on a smaller budget. Of course, there may be some higher end investments, but typically, achieving this look doesn’t have to break your pocket book. Here’s how:

1. Classical neutral colors tend to stand the test of time and don’t look trendy, which can also be construed as less expensive. Look for classic textures, colors and patterns for a more upscale image.
2. Decorating with fresh flowers instead of silk will always boost your décor. Look for bouquets right from your garden or invest once or twice a week with some beautiful inexpensive bouquets from your local supermarket. Trader Joe’s has a very nice selection of reasonably priced, exotic flowers. Read More >

Construction of Palmera is expected to be complete in 2020.

The project site is located a short distance from the Baldwin Park commuter rail station, which is served by Metrolink’s San Bernardino Line.
