Luxurious homes have a certain aura about them: They feel elegant, spacious, and effortless—and expensive, most of the time. But the secret to homes that look expensive is that not everything in them actually comes with a high price tag. The addition of high-profile luxury home décor accessories helps dress up a space, even if that space is filled with large pieces that are affordable or even low-budget.

In the Real Simple Home, designer-curated furnishings fill the space, but it’s the details that make it spectacular. These simple additions (all for less than $100 a piece!) can help your home look expensive, even if the majority of the furnishings came at a major discount.
