Seriously, you won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous, wallet-friendly furnishings and accessories that will make any bedroom look sophisticated and serene, if I do say so myself! I’ve rounded up a handful of items that will pair nicely together, in case you feel like taking on a major revamp and purchasing several of them — or even all nine!

Modway Halcyon Cane Woven Rattan Headboard, Queen, Black

A few years ago, my friends were all DIYing their own cane headboards due to retailers selling these pieces at extremely high prices. Now, so many amazing cane pieces exist on the market that are both chic and affordable (the selection on Amazon alone has increased significantly!). I’m loving this simple black headboard, which is available as a full, queen, or king. If you ask me, cane will never go out of style.

18 inch Metal Mushroom Table Lamp Set

This set of brass mushroom lamps would look gorgeous in a bedroom. Place one on each of your nightstands for an elevated, vintage-inspired look, or use just one on your bedside table and the other on a dresser. They’ll light up your room, literally and figuratively, with their high shine and fun shape.

Linnea Nightstand

Speaking of nightstands, this style is absolutely stunning and easily looks like it could cost $1,000 more than it does. I always prioritize nightstands that have a drawer, and this one looks pretty roomy. It’s nice to be able to tuck away a Kindle, my favorite eye masks, and some lotion and lip balm while keeping the top of my bedside table nice and clutter-free.

Terry Armchair

If you’re anything like me, you don’t always like to sit upright at a desk while working from home. Thus, an accent chair provides an excellent option for those times you want to get a little comfy while checking email or taking a call. This design from Zara Home looks sturdy and soft (and is also majorly on-trend).

Opalhouse designed with Jungalow Stone Pyramid Bookends

As an avid reader, I’m always looking for fancy ways to display my many books, and I’ve found that I can never have too many sets of bookends. No bookshelf in your bedroom? Set these sculptural pyramids up on your dresser or nightstand and showcase a few fave titles or your latest library haul.

Vintage Rug

Vintage rugs are beautiful — there’s no doubt about it. That said, many people associate these textiles with an extremely high price tag. The good news is that you certainly can keep your rug budget to under $350 by scrolling through Etsy. I’ve purchased many of my Turkish rugs from various sellers on the site and have been absolutely thrilled with them. This one, for example, measures about seven feet by just over 10 feet yet costs way less than something you’d find even at a big box store! Though it comes all the way from Turkey, it’s set to ship extremely fast, too.

LANDKRABBA Rack with 5 hooks

Handbags are what make my heart race, and I would definitely hang a few go-tos on this coat rack. It’s a win-win: I can admire my purses while I lounge in my room and easily grab whichever one I need before heading out for the day, all while saving precious closet space. I love these oversized double hooks; they’re both functional and pretty.

Framed Abstract Artwork

No bedroom is complete without some framed art. An abstract piece like this one would look excellent hanging over the bed, helping to establish that area of the room as a focal point. Artfully Walls makes it easy to order prints pre-framed so that when they arrive in the mail, all you have to do is grab a hammer.

Gold Tiger Trinket Dish

No bedroom is complete without a little catch-all tray. I like to keep one on my nightstand to house my rings and bracelets while I sleep, but these also work for corralling things like spare change and loose receipts. Keep in mind that trays don’t need to be pricey; plenty of handsome, affordable options exist on the market, like this cute little tiger motif piece from World Market.
