The Look for Less: J.Crew Store Brass Sphere

I love going into J.Crew stores to get inspiration not only for outfits, but for decor, too. My local store has the coolest artwork, creative window displays, even furniture and coffee table books. One such item I've often admired in my store is this set of two large brass open-work spheres. (I'm not really sure what else to call them - maybe someone knows what these are technically called? I've seen them in design magazines, too.) Spheres add balance when you're decorating and the brass finish reflects light in a pretty, subtle way:

J.Crew stores have the coolest decor, like these brass spheres

About a week ago, I was at my local T.J.Maxx store when I spotted this similar looking (albeit much smaller) brass sphere by Elie Tahari Home for just $5.99! I knew I had to scoop it up. Right now it's just sitting by my mail on a Target chest near the front door but I'm sure I can use it to style a bookshelf or coffee table. Lots of possibilities!

I can't guarantee you'll find one of these at your T.J.Maxx/Marshalls store but it's worth looking. If you do find one, I'd love to see a photo - tag me on Instagram @budgetbabe!
