DESIGNER vs. AMAZON – Decor Look 4 Less – Bohemian Beach Bungalow

DESIGNER vs. AMAZON – Decor Look 4 Less – Bohemian Beach Bungalow

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a few things in this world.

  1. Good decor.
  2. A good deal.
  3. And a good old Amazon purchase.

And if you have been following my thrifty decor challenge (week 1 and week 2) then you know I am trying to decorate our home in a fun, yet moderately frugal way.

This got me to thinking about how I might be able to help other people out there get the looks they love, for a price tag that they love as well.

Which brings me to Dot & Bo.

Basically everything they have is absolutely drool worthy. And while many of their items are reasonably priced, some are definitely out of my reach. But their decor is absolutely TOP NOTCH.

I want their entire inventory… seriously, I want everything they sell… but I want it at a deal!!

This deal desire, in turn, brings me to the holy grail of online shopping (in my opinion) Amazon.

And if you don’t already have an Amazon Prime account, I’m gonna have to say you are NUTS!

It is especially great for us because, when living on an island, ANY shipping is a wonderful thing. Let alone FREE. So ya, it is definitely worth it and if you haven’t tried it, you should.

Anyways… once I start really browsing around on Amazon I realized you could find almost anything you could want, at a fraction of the cost of retail stores.

SO, long story short. Here is our first DOT & BO vs. AMAZON – Decor Look 4 Less.

This week we will be looking at this gorgeous Bohemian Beach Bungalo look and checking out pieces you can get from Amazon that can help to recreate it on a more reasonable budget.


I would first like to start with the big ticket item. This White Papasan Chair. Frankly, I am a sucker for a papasan chair. Always have been, always will be, and for two reasons.

  1. They are SO COMFORTABLE.
  2. They literally last for-ever.

And in this case, the white washed look of the wooden frame along with the white cushion are a great addition to a beach bungalow.


Second highest in price is this Benzara Driftwood End Table. Again, the pricing is a little higher than I would normally like to spend, but it is so absolutely gorgeous that it is worth it. This is absolutely a statement piece that will draw focus and get people talking. And at about $180 it really isn’t too expensive.


Everything else from here on out will drop significantly in price.

Including this absolutely ADORABLE Hand Knitted Pouf Ottoman. One of the main reasons I love it, it comes in a total variety of colors, and kind of looks like a sea urchin. 🙂


Next up is this Turquoise Capiz Chandelier that makes my heart go pitter patter all day!! I LOVE Capiz shells. They are so delicate and beautiful. The way they reflect the sun and make a slight tinkling noise when the wind blows through them. Just incredible. AND they can be reasonably priced if you know where to look!! The white ones are equally as beautiful, but I have a serious soft spot for turquoise.


This Ocean Rhythms and Mermaid’s Tails 2′ x 3′ Rug is everything I could ever hope for in a rug. It also comes available in 2 additional larger sizes and all of them under $100! The 2′ x 3′ rug is only $28 which is completely amazing and pretty impossible to pass up! And one more giant plus, they are machine washable.

Beach Print

I’m a big fan of art on the walls. Without it, I think a house just doesn’t really become a home.

This 8 x 10 Matted Print of Venice Beach is the perfect addition to the walls and will bring this entire room together.

Coral DecorationThis is one of my favorite finds because it isn’t actually real coral! Which is nice to know. Sometimes I get worried that the decor coral is being taken from the ocean just to sell and wouldn’t want to be a part of harming the ecosystem. (I know it sounds a little weird… but hey, better safe than sorry!) And since this is decor coral (actually for a fish tank!!) The price tag is right on track.


Last, but not least! These Cotton and Linen Ocean Park Decorative Pillow Cases are EVERYTHING. Pillowcases are one of my all-time favorite decor items, because simply changing them out once in a while can make such a giant impact on any room.

And they are affordable.

All 4 of these cases are only $14.

Yup, pack it up, ship it out.

I will take it. ALL! <3
