Anthropologie is an amazing brand for both clothing and home decor items. So many people see their collections, and wish they could just makeover their entire house in nothing but Anthropologie. The only downside is that it is expensive, and most people can only afford to buy their absolute favorite pieces, and shop other places for the remainder of their home. The good news is that you can totally achieve the same style without breaking the bank.

Mandala Carved Headboards
The Lombok Bed from Anthropologie costs between $2,698.00–$2,998.00, depending on if you are getting a Queen or King size.
This Balinese headboard by Siam Sawadee on Amazon is $1,090.00 after shipping. If you look closely, you will see that two headboards are identical. The only difference is that the Anthropologie piece added a few extra pieces of wood to frame it, and it is also painted blue. If someone in your home is handy, it should be easy enough to replicate it. Or, you might prefer to keep it white.
Tufted Throw Pillows
This pillow costs $98.00. To be fair, Anthropologie offers similar pillows for $68.00, but it is still more than double the price of the next product.
Even though this is not an exact dupe, you can still get a very similar style of tufted pillow for just $23.90. Also check out Target, Walmart, and Home Goods, because they offer similar styles in the $20 range as well. If you are having trouble finding this style, scope the lawn and garden area. Even if the pillow is made from indoor-outdoor fabric, it can still be a great accessory.
One of the things that Anthropologie is famous for getting right is their floral patterns. Whether it’s in their dish sets, blankets, clothing, and home decor, you can find amazing prints year after year. However, there are loads of other stores that offer florals, too.
Sarah Hankinson Pansies Duvet costs $187.60 for a King Size set from Anthropologie.
Watercolor floral comforter by “Wake in Cloud” costs $59.99 for a 3-piece King Size set.
Macrame Plant Hangers
The Bohemian hippie style that was popular back in the 1960’s and 70’s is back, and stronger than ever. So you can find several macrame pieces in Anthropologie.
This hanging plant holder costs $58.00.
Walmart sells this macrame plant holder for just $7.97. Granted, it’s not as elaborate as the Anthropologie version, but it is a fraction of the price.
Woven baskets are amazing, because they can be used for so many different things. You can put extra blankets in there, use them to carry things, or even dress up a potted plant. There are tons of trendy basket styles out there right now, but here is just one example.
