We already know how to curate our wardrobes to create the perfect high-low mix of designer labels, vintage finds and mall-store pieces. Doing the same for our homes is just as easy if you know where to look, which is why interior designers are our preferred source for all things affordable and chic. They’ve already helped us scour the Target shelves for the best pieces to score on a budget, and now we’ve asked them to do the same with another of our favorite under-the-radar home decor shops. Here, seven items you should buy from Zara Home, according to some of the best names in interior design.
7 Items To Snag From Zara Home
Natural-Coloured Irregular Rectangular Mirror
Homepolish Designer Emma Lesser
"I love this mirror because the organic shape gives it so much character," says Homepolish designer Emma Lesser. "It has a laid-back attitude that I know a lot of my clients would find very appealing. I could see using it in an entryway, in a bedroom or as a decorative accent in a living room."
Large Basket With Handles
Consort Designer Mat Sanders
"A decorative basket is one of our favorite means of disguise," says Consort Designer Mat Sanders. "We love that woven baskets bring texture to your space while banishing clutter. This one from Zara Home is perfect because it's in Pantone's color of the year, Greenery!"
Grey Wavy Ceramic Vase
Massucco Warner Miller
"We're just smitten with the organic yet polished look of this vase," say Julie Massucco Kleiner and Melissa Warner of Massucco Warner Miller. "We love its irregularities (it looks handmade!) and that it has a touch of soft gray, lilac and blush. Pieces like these seem small but add so much personality and punch to a room. It would be a great addition to one (or all) of our projects!”
Test Tube Set Vase
Homepolish Designer Becky Shea
"A house is not a home without nature," says Homepolish Designer Becky Shea. "Any opportunity to apply flower magic in a unique fashion should not be taken lightly. This test tube vase set has perfect harmony between modernism and classic design that allows minimalist sprigs to take center stage."
Cotton Rug With Black and White Pompoms
"We love Zara Home! This cotton rug is great for any space—it can be used in a bedroom or living area and is a perfect layering piece," says the team at Studio Life.Style. "The black and white contrast provides eye-catching design, and the pom is an added detail that makes it unique!"
Grey Faux Fur Cushion Cover
"Pillow covers are an inexpensive and easy way to change up your decor," says Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic. "Mixing neutral tones of different textures is a chic alternative to bold patterns, which is why I love the Zara Home gray faux-leather textured pillows. I would pair them with these gray faux-fur cushion covers for an elegant, somewhat masculine effect."
"Adding a jewel-tone accent color to a space can really change the mood," says Kate Albrecht of Mr. Kate. "I love these rich blue velvet curtains as a way to bring in a luxurious textile and color to a bedroom. Add one blue throw pillow on your otherwise neutral bed or couch and you've got a whole new look for very little money!"
