    31 Affordable Things From Target That’ll Help Make Your Home Match Your Inspiration Board

    Hanging mirrors, throw pillows, and colorful candles—boost your place on a budget (everything's $20 or less).

    1. A wooden beaded wall hanging to make it look like you studied "fibers" in art school and have a large collection of "textiles," even if this is the only art you have hanging.

    2. A patterned throw pillow because (though you kind of hate to admit it) you are getting to that age where you care about lumbar support.

    3. A set of sheer curtains for letting all that natural light in and making it feel like you went outside, even if you just watched old episodes of Bachelor In Paradise all day.

    4. A crushed velvet bulletin board so your home office is as stylish as you are. That is, when you're not wearing your work pajamas all day.

    5. A metal pencil jar to wrangle all your writing utensils in style, even if you never actually write anything and type it all instead.

    6. A textured, patterned shower curtain because honestly, when's the last time you got a new shower curtain?'s probably time.

    7. A beaded hanging mirror for something super unique and for, you know, totally Instagrammable selfies.

    8. A platform picture frame, otherwise known as the OG Instagram. Use it for a cute pic of your friends, your dog, or your friend's dog.

    9. A gold string of monstera leaves with lights so you can feel like you're at The White Lotus. All you need is the eerie theme song in the background.

    10. A striped doormat to remind you to wipe your feet before coming into the house. Trust me, you'll thank yourself.

    11. A wooden desk lamp for lightening up your home and giving your space a *natural* vibe, even if you hate camping, bugs, nature, and eating salad.

    12. A velvety corduroy throw pillow to add a retro, comfy vibe to your bedroom. It's like That '70s Show, but in your own house, man.

    Pink and brown pillows

    13. A set of patterned mirrors for a rustic, earthy feel (and to check if there's anything in your teeth).

    14. A plush sun-patterned throw blanket to keep you warm during the AC-chilled summer or heat-is-too-expensive winter.

    White and orange blanket

    15. A turquoise bathmat with navy trim, so you'll never track water from the bathroom to your bedroom again. Or you know, all-around your one-room studio apartment. Same diff.

    16. A combination chalkboard *and* letter board to keep you motivated as you send your eighty "hope this finds you well" emails.

    17. A funky terrazzo desk light to spruce up your space and make you look like a cool scientist, even if you barely passed chemistry.

    18. A string of lights that holds pictures, for the perfect mix of '90s fashion and Gen Z *aesthetic.* It's the hanging lights for me.

    19. A navy vase with a white pattern for real plants, fake plants, or just looking cute on a table.

    20. A set of small woven rattan baskets to hold all your bobby pins and make your vanity look "put together," even if you forgot to brush your teeth this morning.

    21. A black ceramic vase to hold dried flowers or just look like a "statement piece" on a shelf. You know you've made it if you have "statement pieces."

    22. A metal and faux-eucalyptus leaf wreathe so you can channel your inner yoga teacher who somehow never pulls their hair back during class and never seems to sweat?

    23. A small golden hand figurine to hold loose change, keys, crystals and the business card of that car place you need to call for an oil change. You really should get on that.

    24. An elevated desk clock because being on time is even cooler than being fashionably late. That sounds like something a dad in a 2000s TV show would say, but I'm sticking with it.

    25. A pink jewelry dish to hold that ring that makes your finger turn green if you wear it too long.

    28. A striped dish towel to inspire you to actually do your dishes for once. Well, it may inspired you to do like, one dish.

    29. A string of hanging icicle lights that'll make it feel like the holidays are near, even in August.

    30. A textured terra-cotta jug to show off your adventurous spirit, love of travel, and appreciation of handmade crafts. You got this at a small market on your solo trip to South American, right?
