One of my favourite features in magazines like Style at Home is the high / low spread. Essentially, the magazine styles up two very similar versions of a room and leaves it to the reader to guess which version is expensive / affordable (before revealing the true prices on a later page). Anyway. I love this feature and I get sucked into the guessing game every. single. time.
If you love this as much as I do, go ahead and read on. I have prepared a similar high / low challenge for you.

I really like both of those beds, and I can’t get over the price difference. Insane! I love high and low in S@H, and I’m always either really proud or really disappointed depending on whether I get it right or wrong.
I got this month’s Style at Home high-low wrong! Darn.
