While nothing excites us more than pinning or saving interior imagery (and the year’s biggest design trends) to our many mood boards, it can also leave us feeling a tad overwhelmed by all the pieces we need to re-create those dream rooms. But designing on a budget doesn’t mean you have to forgo beautiful things. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. We actually love to work within cost constraints because it forces you to get clear on direction, to have conviction in every decision, and to only invest in the pieces that you truly love. And thanks to a plethora of incredible interior design stores online now that offer cheap home décor, you can create a designer-worthy home without the millionaire price tag.

But with so many products to choose from, it can be challenging to find the diamonds in the rough—that’s where we come in. We scoured some of your favorite online home destinations—Target, West Elm, H&M Home, Zara Home, Urban Outfitters, and CB2—to source the best affordable home décor that’s guaranteed to make your home look like a million bucks (without spending like one!).
