I Can Always Rely on Target, Amazon, and Zara to Make My Home Look Luxe for Less

As someone who essentially shops for home décor for a living, I'm constantly exposed to the latest trends and am often tempted to splurge on expensive new pieces for my tiny Los Angeles apartment. However, my budget and square-footage don't always allow me to make the big-ticket purchases for my home that I would if money and space were no object.

Luckily, my experience sourcing home décor isn't only from high-street design studios. I've also learned exactly where to find stunning pieces that tap into the latest interior designer-backed trends but that won't cost me my entire savings account. I can always rely on retailers like Target, Amazon, and Zara Home to produce beautiful home décor finds that look far more expensive than they actually are.

At Target, I head straight to in-house brands like Project 62 and Opalhouse for lighting and other accessories that could pass for designer pieces. Amazon also has a variety of in-house home décor brands where affordable treasures are hiding. I often turn to Rivet for mid-century modern items that won't cost a fortune and will certainly fit in my L.A. apartment as well as Stone & Beam for traditional basics. Finally, Zara Home is where I find products to make my home feel absolutely luxe. When it comes to affordable bedding, bath, and kitchenware that looks high-end, the brand can't be beaten.
