By now, you've probably seen photos of baby Crew’s dreamy nursery on Jo’s Instagram. The sweet space, filled with gorgeous vintage furniture, antique art and oh-so-cozy accents has us swooning.

If you love Joanna's style as much as we do, but you're on a tight budget, then check out our list of savvy swaps you can shop from the comfort of your own home at wallet-friendly prices.

Change in Style

Using the dresser as a changing station is a great way to save space and money. Instead of a changing pad, a pretty basket adds a sweet, decorative touch while also being completely functional. Plus, when you no longer need the basket for midnight blowouts, use it as a chic vessel for toys. BUY IT: Olliella, $50

Home on the Range

A large focal art piece is the way to go when decorating any space. Crew’s nursery features an antique sepia print, similar to this Kirkland's look-alike. Look for artwork that's already framed to avoid pricey professional framing. BUY IT: Kirkland's, $149.99

Coziness Underfoot

Every nursery needs a fluffy, cozy rug for playtime. A large area rug like the Loloi version in Crew’s nursery could run you upwards of $400, but if you’re a momma on a budget, consider this gorgeous swap from Urban Outfitters instead. BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $39-$149

More Bang for Your Buck

From crib to toddler bed to full-size bed, this five-in-one crib will grow with baby for years to come. And the best part? It's under $100. BUY IT: Amazon, $98

Mid-Mod Storage

The dresser Joanna chose for Crew’s nursery is a true antique. Finding a similar, authentic midcentury piece could take time and $$$. Save on both by opting for a modern look-alike. BUY IT: Wayfair, $334

Go for Gold

Save your eyes (and baby’s) from harsh overhead light with a stylish floor lamp. Choose a light bulb in the warm color-temperature spectrum to create a calming environment. BUY IT: Amazon, $69

Splurge: Marshall Speaker

Baby Crew is jamming out with his Marshall Speaker and so can your little one! We’ll consider this option a splurge, but don’t worry — check out our budget-friendly option below. BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $250

Save: Retro Victrola

If the Marshall Speaker is out of your price range, save some money (without sacrificing sound) with this retro-style Victrola speaker. BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $50

Rock in Comfort

Jo’s rocker, although gorgeous, will run you about $700. This upholstered, streamlined rocking chair screams mid-mod style while staying way under budget at just $240. BUY IT: Hayneedle, $240

Fake It 'Til You Make It

Being a new parent is challenging — don’t add the stress of remembering to water a plant to your ever-growing list. This faux fiddle leaf fig looks just like the real thing. BUY IT: Amazon, $110

Pretty Planters

A large seagrass belly basket makes a gorgeous home for the faux fiddle leaf fig tree above and comes in way under budget. Pro tip: cover the base of the plant with rocks or Spanish moss to up the authenticity factor. BUY IT: Amazon, $30

Versatile Vases

No need to go overboard with nursery decor. Add a few sprigs of artificial greenery to clear bud vases for an earthy addition. Trust us — your wallet will thank you. BUY IT: World Market, $6

Let There Be (Some) Light

Protect your little one from UV rays while adding comfort and color with light-filtering curtains. BUY IT: Sam's Club, $13-$20

Swoon-Worthy Splurge

Crew’s rocker is so unique that we’re listing his Charlie Crane LEVO as a worthy splurge. Jo’s followers fawn over the cushioned bouncer every time it’s posted — so much so that it's sold out on multiple websites! Baby Crew is already a trendsetter, just like his mom. BUY IT: Charlie Crane, $230
