    25 Home Decor Pieces That'll Switch Up The Vibe With Minimal Effort Required

    Now that's more like it.

    1. A set of pillow covers to pull together a new color scheme without having to redecorate the whole house. Reviewers say these pillow covers are particularly soft, too.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love these soft velvet pillows! The velvet is very smooth and even, and the velvet doesn’t look sparse or cheap at all. They feel expensive and look like high-quality pillows. I also love the soft colors with contrasting trim — it’s very whimsical and cute. And the cats’ hair doesn’t cling to the pillows, so that’s an added bonus. Overall very happy with my purchase!" —NG2

    Get a set of four pillow covers for $32.50+ (available in three sizes and six color combos).

    Get pillows to put in the covers from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five sizes).

    2. Or, a velvet shell pillow that gives major ~I paid a lot for this~ vibes for a fraction of the cost. Plus, it's just so darn cute.

    Promising review: "This is such a cool pillow for the price. The color is very true to the listing, very vibrant and retro vibes galore." —Woody

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in two sizes and 15 colors).

    3. A plush, double-sided shaggy faux-fur duvet set because after a long day, you deserve to sink into your own personal cloud. With faux fur on one side and velvet on the other, you'll be able to flip back and forth between two dreamy comfort options.

    Promising review: "If my house caught on fire, this is the first thing I’d grab. But seriously, this is one of my favorite things in my whole house. I feel like it tied my entire room together. I get so many compliments on it and it seriously so cozy and well made. My only complaint would be how hard thing thing makes it to get out of bed in the mornings. It’s incredibly soft and isn’t the type of 'fur' that will mat and get gross-looking over time. I rely heavily on reviews when I buy things so I’m here to tell you — if you’re on the fence about buying this ... do it!! Also, the pillowcases are amazing also. Super soft and the pompom fringe is adorable." —Sk

    Get it from Amazon for $51.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and 29 colors).

    4. A disco ball — adding a metallic element to your home can really elevate a room with a lot of muted tones.

    Promising review: "My apartment gets very little sunlight, but every single night I look forward to when the sun sets so I can watch the light dance around the room. This simple little mirrored ball has brought me so much joy. Definitely recommend! Yes, there are areas where the mirror pieces are applied a little haphazardly but it’s mostly at the bottom and quite frankly I don’t care considering how affordable this thing is." —Holly

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in three colors).

    5. A fluffy area rug to tie everything together in one ultra comfy bow. Stepping out on this soft rug in the morning might make getting out of bed a little bit easier.

    Promising review: "Best rug EVER!! No seriously ... it is so soft! Bought this one for our living room. We have a similar rug we purchased at Lowes for three times the price for our bedroom and my husband and I decided that we would buy this one again instead. We are actually ordering two more for the baby's room and our middle daughter's room. So many people have complimented this rug and asked us to send them the link!" —Ashley Bryan

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in 14 colors).

    6. Or, a bold area rug that'll make the entire room feel new. Ideal for renters who can't choose the floor of the space they move into, at least this rug will take up a good amount of floor space.

    Promising reviews: "I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE THIS CARPET!!!! the material, the colors just wow. Sooooooo worth it. I got the 7’ 10” and it fits perfectly in my living room. The pictures do it no justice." —Laurynn

    "LOVE this rug! It’s so perfect, colors are well represented in the picture. It’s super soft and I have gotten a lot of compliments. If you’re on the fence, buy it! You will not regret it." —Andrea

    Get it from Wayfair for $155.99+ (available in three sizes and five colors). 

    7. A set of framed abstract colored prints that can uplift the mood in any room where you wish you could afford to add new furniture.

    Promising review: "I fell in love with them as soon as I opened the box. I like that they were wrapped in plastic to avoid damage. I immediately put the hooks on the back to hang them and it was very easy. The only downside was that the frames kept falling off the wall when I used the flat white wall mount that came with the frames. I switched them out for wall nails instead and that worked out just fine. I like how they look on my wall, the colors are bright just as they look in the picture and I'm very impressed." —Beatrice O.

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in two sizes and 44 styles). 

    8. A Dalí clock for a surrealist piece of decor reminiscent of Dalí's famous painting that creates the illusion of ~melting time~. Congrats, you've just landed yourself a conversation piece.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome clock for anyone who loves Dalí and surrealist art. It is a great value for the money considering it is super cool and seems to be good quality. The whole clock is encased in a distorted plastic bubble, which is very cool. The metallic part is also plastic, which is fine. It ticks a bit loudly, but I personally like that. I'm just glad such a cool clock is also fully functional." —Zach

    Get it from Amazon for $13.45.

    9. A trendy and color-changing iridescent and wavy mirror that'll add some cheer to your home with its rainbow hues.

    Promising review: "I ordered the wiggly reflector for my daughters’ new room and it is absolutely stunning! The picture does no justice. I cannot wait to hang it up on their wall and was happy and pleasantly surprised that it came with the hardware to do so. Would definitely buy again!" —matamonalisa559

    Get it from Galisfly on Etsy for $79+ (available in three sizes).

    10. A modern acrylic vase in case you're looking for a simple yet exquisite design to display your flower arrangements, or even a single flower.

    Promising review: "Really unique and funky vase! I wanted something different from the same old clear glass vases I already have, and this definitely checks that box. I was a little surprised that it was a plastic-like material and it’s on the smaller size, but it still looks fancier than it is! Great color!" —Ben Berey

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    11. A shag rug ideal for adding texture and personality to a room. This '70s decor staple has made a solid comeback. It's super soft to the touch, which makes it perfect to rub your toes in.

    Promising review: "These rugs are so cute and so soft! The color is as it shows online. The grippers really do keep them from sliding around. They are excellent quality, and they look beautiful in my bedroom." —Steph Moore

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in 13 sizes and 20 colors).

    12. A bed canopy to add an elegant draping to your bed, making it even more of a sanctuary.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this canopy! It's great for the price. It takes a minute to figure out which way it goes on the bed but don’t get discouraged, you’ll figure it out. This is meant to hang from the ceiling but you can make it work on posts. I tied the hook strings around the bedpost and it holds great. It’s a great canopy." —Shonteka

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three colors).

    13. Some Dalmatian-dot removable wallpaper ideal for renters looking to spice up an otherwise drab studio apartment and still walk away with their security deposit.
