As much as we love the theoretical idea of a seasonal refresh, it’s a little different in reality. Overindulgent consumerism aside, springing for new interior goods every time the weather changes is a recipe for financial disaster—who has the budget for it? Which is why Zara Home’s mid-season sale is such a gift: With over 500 items up to 30 percent off, it’s the perfect excuse to spring for a little decor treat that won’t break the bank.

Exhibit A: This sculptural, matte black side table that looks like a museum piece. It’s a contemporary accent that’ll bring a bit of edge wherever you put it. Best of all, it rings in at under $200.

From plush bathroom textiles to sleek furniture to colorful accents, there’s a lot more to unearth in the sale selection. In the name of budget-friendly seasonal refreshes, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Zara Home pieces that only look like splurge items. Shop our edit of affordable decor items here.

To elevate your sofa

Channel the luxury of brands like Versace and Gucci with this lookalike pillow cover. With a bold pattern and vibrant colors, it’ll make your sofa the focal point of your living room, if it wasn’t already.  

To spoil your plant babies

If your plants are your favorite thing in your home, they deserve an elegant place to live. Featuring a simple yet sculptural silhouette and gold base, this vessel will definitely do the trick—plus, it’s reversible so you can invert the pot when you want to switch things up.

To bring home rustic charm

This set of cream-colored stoneware plates is rustic perfection. Treat yourself—and your open shelves—to a brand-new assortment of dinnerware this season and use it as inspiration to test out those new dishes you’ve had bookmarked for a while.

To brighten your table

Linen can run pretty expensive, but this sunny yellow table runner is the exception to the rule. Just in time for summer entertaining, it’s a fun way to bring a pop of brightness to even quotidian weeknight dinners. Pair with similarly warm-hued dinner plates for a color-saturated look.

To finish off your coffee table

If you’ve been searching for the perfect finishing touch for your mantel or coffee table, call off the search. This sleek glass vase features a gold base for a hint of modern opulence, and while you can certainly go ahead and fill it with your favorite seasonal blooms, we think it would look just as great left empty as it would as a decorative object.

To switch up your kitchen essentials

A decor refresh is all in the details. Wood-effect handles make this flatware set the picture of simple sophistication; it’s a small detail that’ll elevate your dinnerware game.

To take your bar cart to the next level

Speaking of dinnerware, don’t sleep on Zara’s glassware selection. The retailer offers a slew of colorful glasses, and we have our sights set on this amber-tinted set—it’ll give you another reason to look forward to happy hour.
