    2. 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.

    Reviewer's Dali clock is displayed on a bookcase

    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

    3. A fire escape shelf perfect for people who no longer live in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city. It's not only a super-cool piece of decor, but it can also provide a bit of nostalgia.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this shelf. It came in two pieces, not broken or anything, great condition! It definitely takes two people to hang it up. It's got some weight to it, but I love it. I've been wanting this shelf for three years and finally bought it. I was hesitant to spend the money on it, but it was a good buy. Many of my friends who are from NY now want this shelf!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $99.

    4. 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 $22.99.

    5. 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.

    6. 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 $24.99 (available in three colors).

    7. A unique tile floor mat you can change as many times as you'd like. Alter it with the seasons or when your favorite person is coming over for a visit.

    Get it from The Grommet for $75+ (available in two sizes).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95

    10. An ottoman bench you can use in your bedroom, living room, or walkway as a seat, a footrest, or a coffee table. What's cool about this one is that it opens to double as a storage.


    Promising review: "I am just loving this wonderful storage ottoman and have to say I am blown away with how nice it is for the price. The velvet is soft and plush and the beautiful gray goes with any decor. I absolutely love this for putting at the end of a bed as you can sit on it and take your slippers off and it is super comfy for sitting BUT it can also be used solo on a wall for a sitting bench or anywhere you choose in your home. It makes a wonderful decor piece that also provides a seat and storage, so what more can you ask for?! I also love the easy to remove top that provides you a nice storage space for things like blankets and throws or you can store pictures and other items in there. Whatever you want. It just looks good. The legs also provide some style to the piece and putting it together was a snap. I just had to put the legs on using the tools they provide. Seriously...if I can do it anyone can. Great piece here and a great value, too. I highly recommend it." —Melissa Cushing

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99 (also available in gray).

    11. A high-tech square mirror complete with a touch switch dimmable light and anti-fog function that you can hang vertically or horizontally.

    The mirror with a square-shaped perimeter of LED lights hanging over a bathroom sink

    Promising review: “Wow has this changed the look of our bathroom. This mirror is elegant, functional, and modernizes any space.” —JLP

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99+ (available in five sizes)

    12. Or, a full-length mirror to create an illusion of a larger space, which makes it a great choice for small spaces. This mirror can lean against a wall, be hung, or stand free. If you choose the freestanding option, there's a clothes rack that comes with the mirror where you can hang a few pieces of clothing., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this mirror because I have three options for use. It can be wall mounted, which is probably the way I’ll go eventually. My walls are the kind where if you try to hang anything, they just crumble so until I can get a professional to hang it, I will use the free standing option. I wanted a mirror for my home gym, which would be the only full body mirror on the bottom floor of the house. I got the black because price was the best and my workout equipment is black anyways LOL. It arrived packaged nicely in styrofoam and with no damage. The only thing I had to do in order to make it free stand was hook on the included bars with the screws and I was set to go. The freestanding version also has a clothing bar in the back — a great bonus!! It is huge and a really nice quality mirror. Love the curved top as it gives it some elegance. Also if this mirror ever did crack, it's shatterproof and would not spread huge shards everywhere so I felt better about that. Overall I’m pleased with this mirror and its quality." —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99+ (available in four colors).

    13. Some trendy Edison bulbs — a cost-effective and stylish light that really ~glasses~ up the place.


    Promising review: "I'm in love. These Edison bulbs are a phenomenal addition to just about any room in the home. I bought these bulbs for my bedside table lamps. They're a perfect addition to my steampunk industrial-themed bedroom. Definitely recommend these Edison bulbs. Side note: My bedside table lamps are touch lamps with three dimming levels. The bulbs work on all three dimming levels." —Zachary

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $14.99.

    14. A hidden bookshelf to get that pile of books gathered around your overcrowded bookcase off of the floor., Amazon

    Check out BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell's full rainbow window film deep dive.

    Promising review: "We are right in front of the washer and dryers at our apartment complex and everyone always looks inside when we are trying to get some natural light. This is amazing. It was super easy to install with my husband’s help. No glue or anything. Even at night you can’t see my husband sitting in front of the window." —Mrs. Harris

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in eight sizes).

    16. A durable Moroccan-style suede pouf you can use as a chair, footrest, or an end table. This multiuse bag of stuffing is great for pairing with furniture you already have.

    The brown circular pouf with a vertical line pattern around the entire thing

    Promising review: “I live in a one-bedroom apartment and there isn’t a lot of storage. I have wanted a pouf but I couldn’t justify the expense. I went on Amazon and I found these beauties. They look great and can store a lot of pillows, bedspreads, blankets, etc. I do mean a lot. They are soft but firm to sit on. I also use them to stand on to reach objects on the top of my bookcase. I highly recommend them!” —Julie Brum

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in six colors)

    17. An elegant arched floor lamp with the ability to bring the light directly to you, which makes it a great light to read or work under.

    The floor lamp with a round base, big arch, and hanging drum lampshade

    Promising review: “Beautiful arched lamp. This is just the style I was looking for. The base is really solid, supporting the lamp. It has an adjustable retracting pole so you can fit it to your space, and the shade also adjusts, which makes it hang properly no matter what length you expand the pole to.” —Omeima A.

    Get it from Amazon for $159.99+ (available in three colors)

    18. A quilted chenille floor pillow ideal for small spaces to use as backup extra seating when visitors pop in.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.79+ (available in six colors). 

    19. A playful strawberry or orange juice planter that adds charming personality to your kitchen or living room table.


    Promising review for the strawberry planter: "Oh my god I am obsessed with this. This is literally my favorite purchase I've made on this website. When I got it I was so excited. The paint is very vibrant and pretty and it's a lot bigger than I thought. I'm in love with this vase and I think you will be too. You need to get this." —Jemma

    Promising review for the orange juice planter: "I LOVE this vase! I like random, colorful decor and I’m so glad this popped up. It’s very sturdy and the colors are vibrant so you can tell it’s high quality. This vase only holds a small bouquet of flowers. It’s definitely more of a fun item than a practical one. I love how unique it is and it’d make a great gift, too!" —Drew A

    Get them from Amazon: the strawberry and the orange juice vase for $25.95.

    20. A Flowerbar to add something to your walls while still maintaining the folk-inspired minimalistic spirit of your home that you love so much.

    21. A ceramic vase with abstract faces etched into it for an original vase that'll have everyone eyeing your interior design skills, including these faces.

    the white etched vase with a bouquet of dried flowers

    Promising review: "This is my favorite vase! It's beautiful for a centerpiece on my dining table. Love the print, the quality, and the size. Very unique. Already received tons of compliments." —Laura Demetrious

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99

    22. A floral wall mural perfect for feeling like you woke up in a bed-and-breakfast.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely stunning and everything I wanted — looks way better and more vivid IRL. I almost didn't buy this because the colors look so dull and old-school in the pics, and I wanted a more modern glam look. This was perfect. Took two of us to install and three-ish hours with breaks. Took the advice of previous reviewers and bought premixed paste from Home Depot. Definitely don't go easy on the paste; you need enough on the wall to make it easier to adjust and align. Don't worry too much about the bubbles; once it dries down, it all adheres nicely. My guess is the bubbles are excess paste. The quality of this paper is thick and not sheer at all. However, I do think it will look nicer if there's a lighter color under it to begin with. For the price, this is definitely worth it and then some. I would have paid much more for this had I seen it in person. You wont regret it. :)" —Almond Joy

    Get four panels from Amazon for $55.99.

    23. A wireless library light that can highlight your favorite family portrait or be positioned over your impressive collection of books that you've purchased but never read.,

    Promising review: "For the price, you can’t beat it. Super easy to install and lightweight. The gold had a slight orange tint to it, so be mindful of that. I actually just taped over the light and spray-painted ours with gold spray paint I had left over, and then they were absolutely perfect." —Paris Seder

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    24. A minimalist-meets-industrial bookshelf to display your books, plants, photos, and other knickknacks that might've looked like clutter on a dresser, but on this, c'est magnifique!

    The bookshelf in gold and white

    "I have two of these shelves in white/oak, and they're just what I was looking for. Sure, they're more expensive than the units you can get at Ikea, but you can tell the difference in quality. Last time my mom visited (oh, pre-quarantine life), she actually asked if they came with the apartment because they fit so well in my living room." —Chelsea Stuart, BuzzFeed editor

    Promising review: "I love this shelf! I needed something tall to fill empty space and store books and plants. Each shelf is very heavy duty, so I can't imagine any bowing would occur in the future, unless it's got too much humidity. Before we put weight on the shelves, it had gaps between itself and the wall, but it balanced itself out after adding books. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this shelf. It's definitely going to last longer than anything you could buy at Ikea, and it has VERY little wasted/unusable space. Just do it! I put it together myself, but I had to hold it steady/leveled while hubby secured it to the wall. It's not impossible to do alone, but get a second person to at least hold it still for you." —Mrs K3NNYB0Y

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four sizes and 21 colors/finishes).

    25. A hammered gold moon phase garland if your space needs a dash of American Horror Story: Coven vibes.,

    Promising review: "Everything you’d expect it to be. Such a delicate and elegant feature for all us moon children out there. This shop is also exceptional in everything they do (at least from the three products I’ve bought from them so far, they are extremely thoughtful in everything from packaging to follow-up, plus knowing I’m supporting a woman-owned small business is really the cherry on top of personal satisfaction, besides the great product itself. Highly recommend. 👌🙌👍" —fernanda kaufmann

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    26. A cotton woven runner in case you're happy with all of your living room furniture but are looking for a piece to enhance what's already there without being too distracting.

    white runner with fringe and black geometric stripe pattern

    Promising review: "I love this rug. I needed a rug for the front entrance that was washable and pretty. This was it!! It's soft and beautiful, yet durable and washable!! I have not washed it yet, but I’m sure it must be hung up to dry. It's very expensive looking!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors). 

    27. Or an abstract rug that features a variety of colors if your room is somewhat neutral or one solid tone to throw some additional color into the room.

    Get it from The Milkbar Collective for $36

    28. A leather-wrapped table lamp featured on Alicia Keys's curated list of home must-haves to usher in a little extra illumination. It's perfect for turning your bedroom into an upscale hotel room and pretending you're on vacation.,

    Promising review: "I love-love-love these lamps! I recently bought red (more burgundy-like in color) leather furniture and was looking for burgundy lampshades that would go with the furniture and our area rug. Well, I struck out finding shades, but struck gold finding these gems. They're just the right height as they don't take up the entire end table. The lamps are very stylish — not your typical garden-variety table lamp. And the leather base is very nice. These lamps are a lovely complement to the living room, and the price can't be beat. Amazon comes through for me again!" —Deborah Matthews

    Get it from Amazon for $21.33+ (available in 16 colors).

    30. A curved curtain rod that'll push out your shower curtain, giving you a little more room in your shower to move around, which is vital for your shower concerts.

    the curved curtain rod in silver

    Promising review: "Helped to elevate a dark brown bathroom and give it some new life along with a bright white shower curtain. This is a great option if you are renting or even if you own. You won't feel like you settled with a temporary solution as this is sturdy and looks amazing. I highly recommend this product." —LisaG

    Get it from Amazon for $47.78.

    31. A fun shower curtain to add a little personality to your bathroom, and elevate your mood after you've dragged yourself out of your nest. Taking a glance at your shower curtain should make for a cheerier morning.

    a reviewer photo of the abstract shower curtain that has fun shapes and squiggles in different colors and an abstract drawing of a face

    Promising review: "I purchased this shower curtain for my new apartment and I am in love with it. I think my plans for this bathroom were all over the place. I wanted minimalist and boho chic, but also wanted to incorporate enough color. I think this is a great balance. I will say that it looks way more pink in the photo but it’s actually a pale peach color. It paired well with my light wooden shelves and sink cabinet. I paired it with pink bath mats for the soft boho aesthetic. It’s water resistant and it’s not see-through (sheerness). The material appears to be thick enough for a shower curtain and looks like really good quality. I ordered a few boho prints for the bathroom and can’t wait to see the final look." —Ines

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four sizes).

    32. A fall-inspired candle with a matching fall-themed design so you can fill your home with a new scent. And the design makes for an ambient look, too.

    the candle in a scent called flannel that has blue leaves on it
    Bath & Body Works

    Promising review: "One of my favorite B&BW candles for myself or for a gift. The fragrance is warm and cozy, not too heavy. Brings to mind that well-worn flannel shirt that belongs to my husband and being all cozy on a cold winter's night, snuggled up to watch TV." —Mel51

    Get it from Bath & Body Works for $15.95

    33. A faux plant so realistic your mom might actually try to water it when she comes over for a visit. Sounds like a high-~qualitree~ plant.,

    Promising review: "This is a really great faux plant. It has convinced a number of my friends and family! The color and pattern is beautiful, natural looking, and the pot it comes in is small enough to fit easily into a better-looking container or plant stand. The plant itself is tall, full, and very realistic. It was also packaged incredibly well! The only drawback was the initial plastic smell upon initially opening. There are a few leaves that have small plastic spots on them, but they're rarely noticeable unless you're super close to the plant." —Kiley

    Get it from Amazon for $86.48.

    34. Or bouquet of dried pampas grass, a celeb-approved trend that is alive and well. An extremely low-maintenance piece of decor, the neutral colors blended with the texture can transform an area instantly.,

    reviewer before and after photo of the over the brown toilet organizer

    Promising review: "I LOVE this piece of furniture. My bathroom is ridiculously small so I have always felt like I couldn’t decorate in there but this shelf is a game changer. I absolutely adore my bathroom now!! Assembly was a piece of cake, directions were super easy to follow. The shelf comes with anchors, so this thing is going nowhere; it's very sturdy. The bamboo itself seems to be pretty decent also, this is my first piece of bamboo furniture, I love it." —Kristen

    Get it from Amazon for $72.99 (available in three colors).

    36. A pack of smart light bulbs to replace the super-harsh white lights that came with the apartment and that really just kill your vibe. These'll give the illusion of natural light for homes with dark interiors and can be controlled with your smart hub.

    the light bulbs in the color spectrum option that allows you to adjust the dim of the light and also change the color to green red or any other color you choose

    Promising review: "Screw in the bulb, download the app, and you're all set! It's that easy!!! And so fun to play with!!! Turning it on and off with voice command and dimming the light up and down as well. Love it!!!" —Gretchen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in three options).

    37. A set of under-cabinet lights for accentuating your newly added backsplash or for bringing new light to your original backsplash. You can also use them under wall shelves to illuminate your books, plants, and other treasures.


    These under the cabinet lights are battery powered and come with a remote that will allow you to power them on and off, change their intensity, and set them to be motion activated.

    Promising review: "I just remodeled my kitchen and wanted lights under my cabinets to give it a cozy feel. I wanted something easy to install but effective. These lights are great! You can adjust the brightness and can even put them on a timer so they turn off on their own after 15, 30, or 60 minutes. They come with a sticky tape to attach to cabinets but I also added sticky-back Velcro and they have stayed on perfectly. The company sent me an email offering any assistance if I should need it. I absolutely LOVE them and would recommend." —Lisa Corey

    Get six from Amazon for $31.99.

    38. A removable tile backsplash you can stick in your bathroom behind the sink or along the wall in your kitchen to give your room that renovated look and feel.,

    Promising review: "I’m a huge fan of these tiles! Used them in my kitchen as a placeholder while I save up for real tiles. I will say, I don’t feel the urgency to get real tiles since these fool people pretty good. No one realizes they are sticky tiles until I tell them. Basically, peeling the sticker off of the back was the hardest part of the whole process. I had to remove some tiles that had been installed a year ago and it came off without taking up the wall; just make sure to heat it up real good with a blow-dryer. Perfect for renters or if you just want an easy/affordable DIY to update your space." —Jessasmall

    Get 10 from Amazon for $31.99 (available in six colors).

    39. A set of velvet curtains that'll not only add a little instant fancy, but will help to regulate temperatures too thanks to their thermal insulation. Quick tip: Hanging them high and wide will make your windows look larger.

    Promising review: "I am beyond thrilled with these curtains. They are very soft and solid material (think heavyweight upholstery). LOVE THEM!!! They do keep the light out and help keep the room noticeably cooler. The windows get full sun all day; this room gets hot in summer and the curtains make it so much nicer. I'd give these curtains a 10 if I could." —Angelia Olson

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in four lengths and six colors).

    40. A set of airy linen curtains to make your bedroom feel like a scene out of a romance novel. The sheerness allows sunlight to still peek through when closed, too, for those of us who aren't vampires and actually like the light., Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "LOVE THESE. I didn't want something too sheer or lightweight, or heavy and dark; these are perfect. They have a beautiful drape, weight, and body to the fabric. There's a texture in the panels that dresses them down from a voile sheer, but they're not burlap-style rustic — they're refined and soft to the touch. They're well made; there were no flaws or weird smells in my order. I gave them a quick wash, a light dry, and they came out wrinkle free and with no shrinkage. I ordered the taupe shade, and they're a perfect dark-beige/light-café-au-lait color. I highly recommend." —RKEldon

    Get a set from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in six lengths and seven colors).
