Designed in 1968 by Italian architect and designer Roberto Menghi, the Globo di Luce Pendant ($1,355) is as captivating as it was 40 years ago. Blown glass defines the globe's shape, a transparent cable gives it the appearance of floating mid air, and its copper finish gives off a rich, warm light. It's practically solar. Unfortunately, its price tag is out of this world (for most) as well. Luckily, there's a more affordable alternative that's equally spellbinding. To see it, read more

Some may argue that leopard is the new neutral; when it comes to decor, that could be the case! Animal print, specially leopard, is a trend no home should go without. If you're looking to add a hint of exotic glamour, leopard print will do just that. This Jayson Home leopard-print pillow is the wild touch you've been seeking — the printed velvet and neutral tones would work well in any space. But before you're convinced your space can't go without it, consider the hefty $450 price tag. Although this feline accent would be an impressive touch, the price tag may require some serious thought.
Nothing sums up the Miss Havisham look better than an ornate birdcage and this beauty is as old and, at $15,000, as expensive as a first edition copy of Great Expectations.
So what to do if you didn't come into this world as an eccentric trust funder but still love the look of an aviary? Luckily, there is an option out there for the rest of us.
Sunburst mirrors have been on the scene for a while now — and for good reason. Designed after rays of sun, they brighten up indoor spaces that might not get much light. But these accents aren't always cheap, as you can see from this beautiful but costly brass Oly Studio Fiona Mirror that comes in at a steep $1,665.
Thankfully, we found an option that makes just as big a statement but costs way (we're talking way) less
An interior design staple for the global sophisticate with a groovy edge, these pattern-happy shags are available as antique finds or reproductions.
This antique Beni Ourain Rug from 1stdibs dates back to 1920s Morocco. It provides the subtle fading, luscious texture, and fringed detailing that makes these rugs particularly covetable. Still, at $5,000, it isn't exactly the most attainable option out there, which is why we did a double take when we found this remarkably affordable version
Found in everything from fashion to decor, metallics are a current trend that no space should go without. If you're looking to add a small touch of glamour and shine, a few gold accents can give your room a hint of luxury. This Jayson Home Gloria Bolster Pillow will confirm anyone's obsession with anything and everything gold (especially during the holidays) — the handmade silk, ikat fabric, and knifed edges are enough to make any seating feel like a royal throne. But before you're convinced your space can't go without, consider the hefty $595 price tag. Although this silk accent would be an impressive detail, the price tag may require some serious thought.
Whether you display them alone or layer them over woven rugs, cowhides make a stylish statement. Suitable for both upscale modern and country chic decor, cowhides add just that bit of flair every room needs. But, this exotic accent comes at a price. Design Within Reach sells a Spinneybeck Leather Cowhide Rug ($970) that perfectly defines the luxury of this trend. Impressive in size, this premier Italian hide will easily become the focal point of a room. I can't help but think how its caramel coloring could bring out the colors in wood flooring, yet is neutral enough to be doubled up among an equally impressive patterned rug.
You may already know about my obsession with nontraditional headboards. Having a focal point above a bed is essential, and while there are tons of traditional headboards I've flipped for, finding a fresher approach that costs less just feels more thrilling. One of my favorite examples of an inventive headboard that looks more chic than crafty, is from a 2008 Cottage Living spread.
The upholstered nailhead screen has the same polished feel as many headboards I've seen, but the extraordinary height and curvaceous shape add extra visual interest. Still, these types of folding screens are usually just as costly as, if not more expensive than, their headboard counterparts. Luckily though, I've come across a beauty that has all of the details of the featured screen that I love and more! Plus, the price seems too good to be true. Keep reading to see which folding screen might become my new headboard.
