Cheap (But Expensive-Looking) Bedroom Décor That You Can Buy on Amazon

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.

Joya Home Prism Candle
$28 at Amazon

Not only are these Joya candles lovely smelling, but they’re sleek looking, too. (Here’s another not-too-pricey candle we love.)

Safavieh Ceramic 27.5-inch Table Lamp
From $109 at Amazon

A classic, pale-gray, ceramic bedside lamp with a soft linen shade.

Iseacat LED Night Light
$1,000 at Amazon

A less-classic lamp that’s meant for a baby’s nursery, but would look great perched on a grown-up’s bedroom bookcase.

La Jolie Muse Large Cotton Rope Storage Basket
$24 at Amazon

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.

The Supremes at Lincoln Center Poster
$100 at Amazon

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.)

Whiskey Ginger Magnetic Poster Hanger
$18 at Amazon

No need to spend a zillion dollars getting it framed — use this oak-wood, magnetic poster hanger instead.

YAMAZAKI home Tower Leaning Ladder Rack
$50 at Amazon

We’ve written about the life-changing magic of this $50 wall hanger, which is like having an extra closet.

Woolrich Freedom Throw Blanket
$100 at Amazon

Throw this rustic Woolrich blanket at the foot of your bed for some Catskills-cabin-realness.

Super Area Rugs Genuine Australian Sheepskin Rug
$60 at Amazon

Use it as a bedside rug, or toss it over an easy chair — a sheepskin rug immediately gives a bedroom some hygge-chic. (If you’re willing to do faux sheepskin, these rugs get even cheaper.)

ACME Furniture Alivia End Table
$75 at Amazon

A bedside table with a smoky glass top.

Loghot Creative Ceramic Cigarette Ashtrays
$13 at Amazon

If you need something to put on your bedside table, might we suggest this extremely amazing lip-shaped ashtray.

Eggree Mid-Century Velvet Accent Arm Chair
$120 at Amazon

So this is $96, we know, but it’s really a lovely blush-pink chair, that would look perfect next to a window.

Umbra Tesora Jewelry Stand
$30 at Amazon

A concrete-and-copper jewelry stand for making sure your necklaces don’t end up in a tangle.

Pinzon Egyptian Cotton Sateen Hotel Stitch Duvet Cover
$65 at Amazon

This 400-thread-count duvet cover looks like something that’d go for several hundred dollars at Bloomingdale’s.

Icon Clock
From $47 at Amazon

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.

Areaware POTS Pedestal Set
$44 at Amazon

These simple, wooden plant stands from Areaware will work for succulents, as well as candles.

3 Inch Ceramic Plant Pot
$10 at Amazon

While we’re on the subject of succulents, they would look great in this festive planter.

White Bird of Paradise
$8 at Amazon

If you want a proper plant, might we suggest this bird of paradise. Meanwhile, who knew you could order actual plants on Amazon?

CoolDream Pillow
$4 at 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.

Crane Personal Heater
$29 at Amazon

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.

eHomeproducts Espresso Finish Wooden Cheval Bedroom Floor Mirror
$47 at Amazon

We like the dainty, little legs on this floor mirror.

Umbra Woodrow Waste Can
$20 at Amazon

It’s hard to get excited about a trash can, but we really dig this teal one from Umbra.

ClosetMaid 12-Cube Organizer
$70 at Amazon

An all-purpose, white shelf that looks just like an Ikea Kallax — but is even cheaper.
