Browsing through magazines and window shopping in stores can be fun, but also discouraging if you find something you love but it isn’t within your budget, which personally, happens to me a lot.  Thankfully, I’m like a dog with a bone when it comes to finding the best price, so today I’m sharing some of my favorite stylish decor steals with you! {This post contains affiliate links.}

One caveat to this post….often times {but not always}, there’s a reason one item costs less than another, whether is material quality, size, construction, details, etc.  Before buying a less expensive item, give thought as to whether the quality is good enough to suit your needs.  Sometimes, it really is necessary to go with the more expensive piece, but if not, why not score the look for less!  For more information on this topic, you can view {THIS POST}.

 

Crystal Orb Chandelier

One of my favorites!  My husband really liked the 32″ chandelier from Restoration Hardware, but the price just wasn’t realistic for us.  Thankfully, there was an almost identical one available from Amazon!  This exact one now hangs above our staircase.

 

French Tufted Bench

A beautiful tufted bench with carved wooden details makes a perfect statement in a foyer or at the end of the bed.  If you’re not planning on sitting on it a great deal, though, why spend the big bucks when there are lots of less expensive alternatives available, like this one from Wayfair!  Plus, Wayfair includes free shipping but Layla Grace charges $75 for delivery.  {I specified that you’ll need to take into account how much use it’ll get because sometimes, less expensive seating is not constructed as well and doesn’t hold up over time.}

 

Balustrade Dining Table

While beautiful, the Restoration Hardware table comes at a hefty price!  It’s fixed at 108″ long, plenty of space for 12 people.  The World Market table is crafted of a combination of solid Acacia wood and MDF, resulting in a significantly lower price.  What’s nice, though, is that it is an extension table and so can expand from 78″ to 110″.

Vintage Velvet Drapery Panels

Vintage velvet feels and looks so luxurious, but the price often makes it unaffordable for most.  Thankfully, Half Price Drapes is a great resource for high quality drapery panels without the expensive price tag!  The two products below are both 100% cotton, 50″ x 96″, and lined, yet the priced couldn’t be more different.  And I’ve purchased several panels from Half Price Drapes so I can attest to the craftsmanship. :)

 

 

Let’s be honest, when we score something amazing at a great price, we get a thrill!  Plus, money saved can be put toward other projects and purchases, and there are always more projects…

 

A stylish home doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful!

  1. Kim,
    I’m a big believer that you can get the same, or very similar look, to the high end items, with some work on finding great bargains. Thanks for helping with that. The look is what I’m after and I appreciate that there are manufacturers that are happy to supply those of us without unlimited budgets the chance to buy lovely furnishings without breaking the bank.
    xo,
    Karen
