Admit it: You can't get enough of HBO's newest miniseries, 'The Undoing,' — and truthfully, you're not alone. 

The only thing more gasp-worthy than the final 5-minutes of last week's episode? The show's insanely amazing interiors. I —I mean — we've all been drooling over every single interior, all season long. 

Truth be told: the interiors are just as captivating, suspenseful, and dramatic as the Nicole Kidman-Hugh Grant-led show in itself. (Much like the unlikely led cast, the out-of-the-box decor works just as well.) And, the real killer of the show? The decor.

To the point? I can confidently tell you, the only thing I need more in life — well, aside from Grace Fraser's one-of-a-kind green alligator coat (Signe Sejilund, call me!) — would be the chance to recreate some of the show's most show-stopping decor. And, if you're feeling similarly? Today's your lucky day. 

Ahead of tonight's killer series finale, we've gone ahead and found out how you too can recreate some of the Fraser's most jaw-dropping rooms — without the $30million listing price

Plus, if you're a current Upper East Side resident like myself? It's the silver lining you don't just want but need. 

So, whether you're looking to recreate the Fraser's breathing living room or mimic Grace's ocean oasis bedroom, here are five ways to mimic some of the most luxurious rooms featured in 'The Undoing' without the hefty price tag. 

Steal their style: The Fraser's master bedroom and it's metallic wallpaper

First things first: for all you Sex & the City fans out there? You're not dreaming! The Fraser's master bedroom was also featured in the Sex & the City movie (and is also located in real-life right by the one Carrie and Big reside in). 

However, the one reason viewers can distinguish one from the other? Easy: it's the metallic wallpapering (and it's featured throughout most of the rooms in the show). And stealing this specific style has never been easier.

Steal their style: Sally Morrison's quintessential Upper East Side home (and her classic chic curtains!)

In the first episode, we meet Grace Fraser (Nicole Kidman) and her band of Upper East Side moms, who all are gathered at Sally Morrison’s (Janel Moloney) to plan an upcoming fundraiser.

While most of the moms spend their time judging the (soon-to-be-deceased) Elena (Matilda De Angelis), our attention was front-and-center on Morrison's chic curtains.

The long drapery made a simple yet stunning statement — and I couldn't stop swooning over how chic the cream curtains looked.
