If this bad weather has you stuck indoors looking at anything that needs an update, I’m here to tell you, it’s time for a change. Not in budget? As an interior designer, I can assure you there are ways to curate a high-end look without breaking the bank. And I only have the resource worthy of design: Target. Magnolia Home’s Joanna Gaines, Jungalow’s Justina Blakeney, and Studio McGee’s Shea McGee all have lines at Target, so you can get your hands on Elle Decor-worthy vibes for your digs, without digging too deep 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 expensive versions, but still capture the look. I’ve also included side-by-side 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 shops); the pieces on the right are cheap alternatives that will still make you swoon. Grab these fabulous finds before they sell out!
Marin Stackable Pouf with Wheels
Space-Saving Heaven: A comfy ottoman with three ottomans that can be unlinked and used as footstools or floor cushions, this versatile and ingenious piece sells out regularly. The wheels let it glide easily wherever you need it; lovely shades of blush pink and coral create striking neutrals. His most expensive doppelgänger — see above, left — is $3,000 at 1stdibs.com.

Vernon barrel accent upholstered chair
Can you get closer to a better match or deal? One barrel chair will look great in a corner of the bedroom or use two to complete the living room setup. Presented in natural linen, Target’s version is on par with the (much) pricier version.

Fluted wooden side table
Don’t be a square. Grooving adds texture and interest to this drum-shaped end table. Natural oak brings warmth to your space, without being dark and heavy. It complements coastal or boho aesthetics perfectly.
