I've got designer taste with an Amazon budget, and thankfully, there seems to be a beautiful swap or replacement for all the designer home decor pieces I'm currently obsessing over. For classic, minimal style with a bit of a coastal or boho flair, I'm loving these Amazon home products that are super similar to the designer items I don't have the patience to save for.
The best part is that, with all these affordable swaps, I can add even more elements to a room without compromising the budget. These are some of the best home design finds I've discovered on Amazon, and most of them are truly a fraction of the cost of their designer counterparts.
A room or tabletop feels incomplete without a beautiful vase - at least for me. I'm obsessed with the white ceramic vase line from Lulu & Georgia. They're classic pieces that make an understated impact in a room. But with a toddler in the house? I'm going to need a more affordable choice. This whole line from Amazon is a winner for me, but the curves of this lantern vase are especially trendy. This replacement is less than $60 and so affordable compared to Lulu & Georgia's $298.
If you follow Studio McGee on Instagram or browse their shop, you've probably found yourself drooling over their stunning lamp collection. Large lamp bases made of stone, ceramic, and concrete are the classic minimal lamps of my dreams. But I need something that's not quite that much of an investment because I like to change things up quite often. Cue these understated and rustic lamps from Amazon. The texture, size, color, and style are so dreamy and the price is much more managable than an authentic Studio McGee piece.
Pottery Barn's bestselling waffle weave duvet is the luxury experience I need in my life. But the investment isn't part of the experience I had in mind. This Amazon alternative is praised for its soft texture (inside and out) and is exactly the style I want without the sticker shock. They are still a bit of an investment, but at this price I feel much better about the choice and might consider a second color.
Restoration Hardware is doing the travertine trend with designer luxury, and I'm so here for it. But I don't usualy invest in decorative items within a home design budget - I like to save that for furniture and finishes. So Amazon's inexpensive replacement for RH's travertine tray is my new budget bestie. Excuse me while I try to find an excuse to add one to every room.
Joanna Gaines really knows how to make a trend feel classy, and that's why people are obsessed with her bestselling olive wreaths. Given that I change out wreaths so often, I wanted one a bit more budget-friendly. The price on this olive wreath is unbelievable, but the quality is clearly there. The last thing I wanted was a flimsy olive wreath, and this one is definitely full of volume.
Serena & Lily make the coastal grandmother trend a dreamy and timeless aesthetic with various home decor items in their current lines. But the throw pillows are another level. The blue, white, and navy palette are the epitome of a home oasis, but I want to cover my sofa in these pillows so I need an affordable option. These throw pillows from Amazon and their matching pieces are exactly what I'm looking for and at this price point I can fill my sofa with pillows. Coastal grandmother aesthetic, here I come!
Frontgate's marble chain link has been a designer fave for a few years now. It's certainly a beautiful decor detail, but for such a trendy piece I prefer a budget-friendly option. Amazon's wood version of the designer statement piece is the perfect swap, and I love that it's an affordable way to try out this trend without feeling too committed if it ever feels dated.
If you love collecting ginger jars, the investment might feel like less of a risk. But if you like trying trending home pieces like I do, you may prefer a swap for those designer jars. Ballard Designs has a stunning collection of ginger jars and other chinoiserie pieces, but Amazon's comparable finds are an affordable way to test the trend in your home before dropping the big bucks.
Linen curtains will never truly go out of style, so they are often worth the investment. In my case, I like to save splurges for those truly remarkable parts of a room design, so I keep the plainer pieces on the low end of the price range as much as I can. These linen panels from Amazon are the perfect affordable swap for Pottery Barn's classic staple.
No one does boho elegance quite like Serena & Lily, and their La Jolla basket line is exquisite. This stylish trade for the large rattan basket is just as beautiful and practical as the original. This might be the most elegant way to stash laundry or toddler toys I've seen in quite a while.
