It's now been over two years since we've featured Nina Dobrev's stunning West Hollywood home, but we still can't get it off our minds. The Consort-designed space has already proven to stand the test of time with its laid-back Cali-cool vibes and bohemian aesthetics. While it may be a little farfetched to think that we could emulate the actress's fabulous life and move into a four-bedroom 1929 Spanish-style bungalow in the Hollywood hills, we can take literal hints from her home to re-create the look in our own spaces.

In an effort to live a little more like the A-list celeb, we tracked down items from her home, or sourced pieces so similar that they give off the same edgy vibe. Better yet, every single piece is under $200, so you can purchase everything without taking out a second mortgage. Ready to live the high life like Nina Dobrev? These home décor picks will bring you this much closer to the actress's gorgeous home.
