10 Coastal Inspired Looks for Less

I am really excited about today’s post since you should know by now how I have a weakness for looks for less. And while I love recreating higher end designer dupes myself, I just don’t have the ability at the moment to make DIY versions. So I thought I would share designer dupes that you can find online, no DIY required.
This is a great way to reduce costs when redesigning spaces without sacrificing style. Plus by having something like this as a reference you have options at your fingertips and you can pick what you wish to DIY yourself versus what you would rather just purchase and save yourself the time.
I figured this is something I can share at least once a month to give you a little inspiration and since we are creeping upon summer I figured it would be great to feature a coastal inspired look for less. This space more or less caters to a dining area but a lot of these pieces can be used in other spaces as well.
Below is the vision board for all of the designer options.
I absolutely love everything about this space. The rustic charm meets coastal vibe is totally up my alley and all of these items can be used to create a beautiful dining space.
*Please note that some of these items go on sale from time to time from both categories, so by the time you see this post some of the prices may vary. The prices listed were active at the time I wrote this blog post. Either way the savings remain very similar*

Here is a breakdown of all of the designer items and links to each:
Pottery Barn Lanterns $449| Serena & Lily Chandelier $1698 | Ballard Designs Two-Toned Cabinet $2239 | Ballard Designs Art $503 | Serena & Lily Rope Mirror: $798 | Restoration Hardware Round Table $3255 | Serena & Lily Slipcovered Chairs $1498 each (set of 6 $8988) | Ballard Designs Rug $559 | Pottery Barn Vases $126-$169 | Pottery Barn Bar Cart $349
GRAND TOTAL FOR A 6 SEATER DINING TABLE SETTING AND ALL OF THE ABOVE WITH THE HIGH END ITEMS = $19,133
Here are all of the Look for Less Dupes and links to each:
Kirklands Lanterns $139 | Home Depot Chandelier: $249 | Wayfair Two-Toned Cabinet $1299 | Kirkland’s Art $129 | At Home Rope Mirror $79 | Wayfair Round Table $739 | Ikea Slipcovered Chairs $135 each (set of 6 $810) | Boutique Rug: $379 | Kirkland’s Rustic Vases $67-97 | Wal Mart Bar Cart $53
GRAND TOTAL FOR A 6 SEATER DINING TABLE SETTING AND ALL OF THE ABOVE WITH THE DUPE OPTIONS = $4,040
As you can see I tried to keep the designs as close as possible to the original high end pieces. The difference between the two options is a savings of $15,093! That’s amazing!
Of course, you can always mix and match pieces from the high end and dupes list and you can still save big. But it just goes to show how much you can save without DIYing a single thing and still get an amazing high end looking coastal inspired dining room for your home. All the while not compromising the original high end aesthetic you are trying to achieve!
It may take a little bit of time to find everything you might be looking for in a “cheaper” version, but I personally believe the savings far outweigh the effort put into it.
I hope this inspires you to check out the internet before making your next purchase to see how much you can truly save the next time you decide to redecorate a room. The possibilities are endless.

Until then… adios!
