New year, new design ideas: Whether you’ve resolved to redecorate in 2023 or you’re just craving a room refresh, the good news is that you don’t need a full floor-to-ceiling makeover or big furniture splurge to easily implement some stylish change into your space. That’s right, little accents can still do some major home design heavy lifting, whether that involves swapping out living room pillows, stocking up on pretty-meets-practical storage solutions, or incorporating more wall art or decorative details into your existing layout. Even playing with new patterns or pops of color can instantly transform the look and feel of any area. And best of all, these low-lift accents often come with low price tags to match.

So, where to start shopping? Two words: Pottery Barn. Yes, believe it or not, the high-end home brand is well-stocked with plenty of stunning, small (major emphasis) staples that won’t break the bank. And I took the liberty of browsing their site for some of the best home decor under $50 — including some amazing sale finds — that you can buy right now. From vintage-inspired pillows to sleek candleholders, these budget-friendly pieces guarantee a huge impact, no interior overhaul needed. Bonus: They’re all perfect for moving around and re-styling, too.

You’d never guess that this handcrafted ceramic vessel was less than $50, let alone came from Pottery Barn in the first place. The 9.5-inch-tall style touts a unique worn-in look that feels, well, practically ancient (but still highly sought after!). Best of all, it’s pretty as a standalone piece or paired with a few eucalyptus sprigs.

Fun fact, Pottery Barn’s a surprising treasure trove of well-designed desk accessories, including their (now-discounted) acrylic collection. I love this versatile rotating caddy for consolidating pencils, paper clips, rubber bands, and more, all in one sleek, compact organizer. Or, it even screams pretty bathroom storage, too — new makeup holder, anyone?

I’d argue that luxe picture frames can (sometimes) be worth the splurge, but it’s the ultimate decor win-win finding high-end-looking styles that don’t cost a pretty penny. As part of Pottery Barn’s bestselling Nadia bone collection, both the 5” x 7” and 4 x 4” sizes are priced less than $50 and add an elegant, patterned touch to your favorite printouts — especially black-and-white photos.

It doesn’t get much more timeless and chic than a simple solid-hued throw pillow, and these sofa or armchair staples check all the boxes. They’re made from recycled fabric (sourced via single-use plastic bottles!) and can sit pretty on your indoor and outdoor furniture, NBD. You also can’t go wrong with either blue or green colors, but I’m partial to the latter for breathing a fresh, natural feel into a space.

Grab this new arrival before it’s gone! Each handmade ceramic style is one-of-a-kind with a beautiful, earthy finish. Whether a trinket dish, matchbook holder, or decorative coffee table detail, the bowl’s neutral coloring knows no styling bounds. Not bad for less than $40.

There are candleholders, and then there are sleek wall-mounted candleholders. I’ve been seeing iterations of this style everywhere the past few months, and it’s a cozy alternative to flanking your bed or sofa with sconces — although even just one solo makes just as much of a statement. A small hallway or bathroom can benefit big time from this compact accent, too.

As much as I love the design of these dessert plates for, well, serving dessert, I also love the set of four’s hanging art potential. Yes, go beyond the dinner table and incorporate one as an unexpected element into your gallery wall, then consider stacking the rest in a row along blank kitchen or living room space.

As a home editor, I’m a huge proponent of design-forward storage, especially those for out-in-the-open areas. These woven seagrass baskets check all the boxes: They’re available in medium or large sizes, so you can stock up for your bathroom, closet, living room bookshelf, entryway, and beyond. The cut out handle makes them easily accessible, as well, and either are spacious enough to stash blankets, books, toys, office supplies, and so much more.

For just shy of $50, this pillow cover looks straight out of a high-end antique store. The velvet patterned piece brings instant warmth to your seating situation, no matter the fabric or color, although it can particularly pop against lighter-toned furniture.
