If you like the casual, all-American style that is classic Pottery barn (top sofa), IKEA is a great place to re-create many of the same looks for less (bottom sofa). Think slipcovered, roll-arm sofas and chairs, coffee tables with clean lines, basic picture frames, and minimal, simple accessories.
Like Wisteria? Shop Pier 1.
Wisteria (jar on left) is known for its classic, well-traveled style. Pier 1 can be a great source for many of the same items if you want to re-create a worldly feel on a not-so-out-of-this-world budget. Similar less expensive items include blue-and-white ginger jars (jar on right), decorative room divider screens, garden stools, and Chinese Chippendale-inspired accent chairs.
Like Restoration Hardware? Shop World Market.
If you're a fan of Restoration Hardware's European-inspired style and industrial mix (rug on left), World Market might be the key to creating the same look with a much lower price tag. World Market offers similar plush, tufted headboards and vintage-inspired rugs (check out their Veronica style, like the rug on the right). You can also find the same types of textural accessories like beaded chandeliers, glass terrariums, and industrial shelving.
Like West Elm? Shop Target.
West Elm is known for its clean, midcentury modern-inspired style (table on left). And, thanks to its home accessory product lines like Threshold and Nate Berkus, Target has become an affordable alternative to achieving a similar look (table on top right). With each changing season, you can expect to find new offerings that mirror West Elm's style in lighting, rugs, and decorative objects, to name a few.
Like Serena & Lily? Shop Overstock's Worldstock.
Serena & Lily is known for fun color, pattern play, and family-inspired designs (pouf on top). And, you might be surprised at where you can go to create a similar vibe for a fraction of the cost. Worldstock was founded by the CEO of Overstock and is an online marketplace of handmade items from artisans around the world that encourages fair trade. To re-create a taste of Serena & Lily's signature style, shop leather Moroccan poufs (pouf on bottom), colorful pillows from India, and rattan accent tables.
