    1. A rope basket to store blanket or trinkets, because your place looks nicer when it looks like everything has a place.

    2. A small hanging mirror that will not only add a touch of flair to your wall, but it will also make your place look bigger as it reflects light.

    3. A set of floating shelves to take advantage of wasted space on your walls and show off any cool books, candles, or souvenirs you love.

    4. Adhesive backsplash tiles – people will think you spent hundreds of dollars redoing your kitchen when all you did was peel it off and stick it to your kitchen wall (or shower or wherever else you want in your home).

    5. An indoor planter stand that sadly won't remind you when you should water the plant inside, so don't blame me when the stand still looks great but the plant inside looks a little questionable. We can't all have a green thumb.

    6. A shelf to add some life to your walls. Yep, your stuff definitely looks better on the wall than in a pile on the counter. I guarantee it.

    7. A set of two velvet throw pillow covers because putting these on your couch will make you feel like you're basically living at Buckingham Palace, I swear.

    8. An entryway organizer perfect to put by your front door so you have a place to store your mail instead of just letting it pile up on your counter or kitchen table forever.

    9. An LED light strip to turn your mirror into a vanity worthy of a big Hollywood star. Plus, you'll be able to do a much better job on your makeup when you have good lighting on your face.

    13. A set of peel and stick floor tiles designed to make it super easy to redo your floor, without spending a lot of time or money.

    14. A static cling decorative window film perfect if you live a little too close to your neighbors or have big windows in rooms that probably don't need big windows.

    15. A set of five petite glass vases because flowers in tiny vases are just so much cuter than they are in regular-sized ones.

    Five small glass vases in different sizes with etching on the bases in green, blue, purples, red, and orange

    16. A set of minimalist wood hooks to put your coats on rather than just throwing them on the floor.

    17. A beautiful runner with a boho-chic feel you can add to your entrance way to give that area the breath of life it deserves.

    20. Photo clip string lights that will not only add some ambience to the room but also give you a place to display all your favorite pictures that make you smile.

    21. A marble self-adhesive film to make every surface look 100x fancier and help ensure that you get your security deposit back when you move out.

    22. A gold terrarium you can use as a home for a few succulents or as a unique piece of storage. The possibilities are endless.

    23. A simple floor lamp that includes an LED bulb and has an adjustable gooseneck so you can get light exactly where you need it.

    24. An antique decorative mirror tray you'll feel super fancy putting your keys on when you get home. Then, when you're ready to leave again, you'll know exactly where they are. Imagine that.

    25. A floral medallion tapestry to give your walls new life, which is great if you rent and can't paint the walls — or you just don't want to.

    26. An table lamp you can turn on before you turn off the overhead lights so you have a bit of light when you get into bed instead of just diving in the dark and hoping for the best.

    27. A folding storage ottoman you can fill with all the random stuff in your living room you're not sure what to do with and then use as a footrest or extra seating. We love multi-purpose items.
