    1. A three-piece velvet quilt set, because your current bedding could use an upgrade. Adding a quilt instead of purchasing a whole new comforter is way more cost-effective, not to mention *chic*.

    3. A tapestry to liven up your new home — it'll also double as a backdrop for prime photo-ops.


    Promising review: "I got this tapestry for my studio and I love how pigmented the blue is on the material. It was larger than expected which was a big + since my wall is large. It really adds color to an empty space and I was also happy not spending a whole lot on the tapestry as well." —Beth

Nails will be taped to unit. The unit comes with a scented Febreze disc that will keep your carpet fresh and clean. The turbo power will suck up and pet hair or dust you have." —R32012

The shelves are a nice place to organize gloves, hats, and scarves in bins, as well as the occasional pair of shoes. My daughters (5 and 2) can easily reach the hangers for their coats. I would definitely recommend this item." —Kirrabismom

If you're looking for a very thick rug this is not for you, but if you're looking for an affordable shaggy rug this is the rug for you. So happy I bought this rug. I plan to buy another one." —Liz

    Price: $269 (available in two colors)

    20. A papasan chair, because sometimes you don't want to lay down on your bed but would rather cozy up with a soft blanket in a relaxing chair. (Don't tell me this doesn't make you want to curl up like a kitten and sleep 'til kingdom come).

    21. A pair of rustic pine wood floating shelves that can be placed on any wall in your new house to display decor or store much needed essentials.

    Price: $41.20+ (available in two colors)

    22. An electric fireplace to help heat your bedroom and undoubtedly look beautiful burning before bedtime.


    Promising review: "Our bedroom fireplace finally died, and I just replaced it with this one. It is smaller than the one we previously owned, so check the height before you purchase, but it is very pretty, has the option for up to 4-year warranty, and it has a great heater and colorful fake flames. We really like this!" —swinginggramma

    Price: $156.44

    23. A set of pictures frames, because nothing makes a room feel cozier than all your best memories with loved ones displayed.


    Promising review: "It accents my living room wall perfectly. It's the first thing people notice when they enter." —Della

    24. A Ninja Nutrient blender if you're in the market for a new kitchen bestie to help you achieve the most nutritious juices, smoothies and purees!


    Includes 18 oz. cup and 24 oz. cup.

    Promising review: "This works VERY well. Easily chops through frozen fruit including bananas. As long as you don't over fill it, it will turn anything to a fine puree quickly. It is VERY loud, but it takes power to chop it all up, so it was expected. Cleanup is easy and fast. If you like smoothies, this is the perfect tool! As far as the build quality, the cups are a very strong plastic, including the lids, so I expect them to last a long time. The base unit is strong and seems very sturdy, the blade lid is easy to put on and off and rinses clean easily. As stated the motor is loud, but the unit is very easy to operate. The suction cups on the bottom of the unit keep the whole thing from moving while running. The cups, lids and blade lid are dishwasher-safe. Buy it and you won't regret it!" —3JoeJoe3

    Price: $69

    26. A set of floral wall prints so you can cultivate your dream gallery wall above your couch or bed.


    Promising review: "I like them very much. They were larger than I thought but they turned out to look better than what I expected. I placed three of them in a row over my bed. And the colors are very nice and blend in with the room. For what they cost I was very pleased." —J

    Price: $28.21 (Set of four 14" x 16" prints)

    Promising review: "I love the matte white finish of this set! I wanted something that wouldn't take up too much room on my counter. A beautiful classic design; will likely order more pieces from this line." —ourvintagenest

    Price: $94.64 (available in four colors)

    31. And a gorgeous minimalist bed frame so decorating your new bedroom will be a cinch. This frame will be a gorgeous focal point that'll make your room feel regal and luxurious.


    Promising review: " I cannot believe that this bed frame fits in my small space as perfectly as it does. I was surprised when it was delivered in such a small box! The instructions were great, but it's easier if two people build it together. It seems very sturdy and neat-looking, and there is space under the bed to put small toys and boxes. I am very pleased with the design of this bed, and I highly recommend it." —alemij
