If this dreary weather has got you stuck in the house eyeing everything that needs an update, I’m here to tell you, it’s time to make a change. Not in the budget? As an interior designer, I can assure you there are ways to curate a high-end look without spending top dollar. And I have just the design worthy resource: Target. Joanna Gaines of Magnolia Home, Justina Blakeney of Jungalow and Shea McGee of Studio McGee all have lines at Target, so you can get your hands on Elle Decor-worthy vibes for your digs, without digging too deeply into your pocket. And just to give you a hand, I’ve lent you my designer’s eye and curated some of the best finds on the site that cost a fraction of the pricey versions, but still capture the look. I’ve even included side-by-sides for comparison (fun!), so you can see for yourself. The pieces on the left are the real deal (some are vintage finds; others from high-end stores); the pieces on the right are budget-worthy alternatives that will still have you swooning. Grab these fabulous finds before they sell out!
Marin Stackable Pouf with Casters
Space-saving heaven: A comfy ottoman with three poufs that can be untied and used as footrests or floor pillows, this versatile, genius piece regularly sells out. Casters let it easily glide wherever you need it; yummy shades of blush pinks and corals make for surprising neutrals. Its pricier doppelgänger — see above, left — is $3,000 on 1stdibs.com.

Vernon Upholstered Barrel Accent Chair
Can you get any closer to a match or a better deal? A barrel chair will look great in a bedroom corner or use two to round out your living room setup. Shown in natural linen, Target’s version is right on par with the (way) more expensive version.

Wood Fluted Drum End Table
Don’t be a square. Fluting adds texture and interest to this drum-shaped end table. The natural oak infuses your space with warmth, without being dark and heavy. Perfectly complements coastal or boho aesthetics.
