If you know where to look on Amazon (we’d say, at this point, we have a Ph.D. in Amazon-looking), you can find some very handsome home décor that looks a lot more expensive than it is. In the past, we’ve explored the cheap-but-expensive-looking world of under $20 home accents and bathroom décor. Now, we’ve taken on the bedroom, and set a price limit of $100. Here’s what we dug up.
Not only are these Joya candles lovely smelling, but they’re sleek looking, too. (Here’s another not-too-pricey candle we love.)
A classic, pale-gray, ceramic bedside lamp with a soft linen shade.
A less-classic lamp that’s meant for a baby’s nursery, but would look great perched on a grown-up’s bedroom bookcase.
If you don’t want to waste precious closet space with a hamper, this cotton-rope storage basket is handsome enough to keep out in public view.
What is more fabulous than the Supremes performing at Lincoln Center in 1965? (For more surprisingly nice posters you can find on Amazon, click here.)
No need to spend a zillion dollars getting it framed — use this oak-wood, magnetic poster hanger instead.
We’ve written about the life-changing magic of this $50 wall hanger, which is like having an extra closet.
Throw this rustic Woolrich blanket at the foot of your bed for some Catskills-cabin-realness.
A bedside table with a smoky glass top.
If you need something to put on your bedside table, might we suggest this extremely amazing lip-shaped ashtray.
So this is $96, we know, but it’s really a lovely blush-pink chair, that would look perfect next to a window.
A concrete-and-copper jewelry stand for making sure your necklaces don’t end up in a tangle.
This 400-thread-count duvet cover looks like something that’d go for several hundred dollars at Bloomingdale’s.
This is a really, really cool nightstand clock that we imagine would be in Pee Wee’s Playhouse, or in a 1980s teen’s bedroom, or at the Wing.
These simple, wooden plant stands from Areaware will work for succulents, as well as candles.
While we’re on the subject of succulents, they would look great in this festive planter.
If you want a proper plant, might we suggest this bird of paradise. Meanwhile, who knew you could order actual plants on Amazon?
A groovy throw pillow can really zhuzh up the bed. Note: this is just a pillowcase; here’s a pillow that will fit inside it.
This isn’t so much décor as it is a truly functional object (a small space heater, for those cold winter nights) that happens to not be hideous.
We like the dainty, little legs on this floor mirror.
It’s hard to get excited about a trash can, but we really dig this teal one from Umbra.
An all-purpose, white shelf that looks just like an Ikea Kallax — but is even cheaper.
