    Get it from Amazon for $25.95.

    4. A decorative window film to create a stained-glass effect that will cast beautiful rainbow light all around your house. It's also a great way to add some privacy on windows where you can't easily place curtains or blinds.

    Promising review: "I have a weird skinny window in my house where no normal window covering works. People walking on our community trail can see up into our upstairs bathroom when the light is on and it's dark outside. Not a good plan at all. So I used this window film and cut different-sized circles and placed then on this window to interrupt the view into the house. Worked perfectly! Very easy to use." —Marsgard

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

    5. A retro wall plate for a pop of color in an unexpected but highly frequented part of your house. It'll leave you feeling like you're living in The Jetsons house.

    Atomic Surplus is a small business based in Idaho that handmakes atomic-age accessories.

    Promising review: "These plates are fantastic and Sam is great to work with. I placed a large order and changed out every plate in the house. They look fantastic and I'm so happy I stumbled on Atomic Surplus. What a terrific find." —Meg Morton

    Get it from Atomic Surplus on Etsy for $30+ (available in 16 styles and 10 colors).

    6. A set of two velvet mid-century lounge chairs — you can create a sitting nook that looks straight out of an expertly designed hotel lobby.

    Promising review: "These are the 'wow' in my living room. I'd buy more if I had the space. The gray is so nice and elegant. The gold on the gray is stunning. I love these." —Malone B.

    Get it from Amazon for $263.99 (available in four colors).

    7. A beaded bohemian chandelier if you want a beautiful light fixture but don't want the traditional, crystal-heavy look. The beadwork on this still gives that wow factor chandeliers are known for, and the simple design won't look too gaudy or overpowering in your space.

    Promising review: "Love this light fixture! I have it in my kitchen. Really adds to the boho vibe. If you have a handyman around I'm sure they could install it. My husband did it in about an hour or so. Beware: It is rather large and in charge, but beautiful! May not suit a small area. In addition, the light bulbs it comes with are not dimmable so you may want to purchase three of those if you need it to dim. Very happy with the purchase overall!" —Sierra

    Get it from Amazon for $127.91+ (available in three colors).

    8. A vintage-inspired mirror with serious Pride & Prejudice vibes — this definitely looks like something Lizzy Bennet would stare into all day while contemplating her feelings for Mr. Darcy.

    Many reviewers use this mirror as a decorative tray to store jewelry or perfume!

    Promising review: "I love them!!! What I was looking for were gold and white mirrors. The only ones I could find were expensive and had that cheap gold look. I use these mirrors on my wall in the bathroom. They look better than the picture, very elegant and antique and expensive. I purchased two of them because of the size, which turned out perfect. I would buy again." —Trevor Lang

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in three colors).

    9. Or a set of these three decorative mirrors to liven up an entryway or add a pretty focal point to the blank wall above your couch.

    Promising review: "I love how the mirrors look exactly the same in person as they do in the pictures. They're actually prettier in person and I appreciate how lightweight they are, making it easier to hang on the wall even using nailless hangers." —Y. Boyd

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $15.99 (available in five colors).

    10. A wicker hanging chair if you feel like your patio is missing something — just imagine how luxurious it will feel come summertime when you're reading your favorite book or catching up with friends while sitting in this!

    The hanging chair comes with a 78.5-inch chain but you will need to buy a mounting kit or hire a professional to install it.

    Promising review: "I was blown away as to how comfortable this chair is — so is everyone else who tries it. Looks great, feels great, and so far has not discolored despite being outside (under shaded area). If I had the room, I'd order several more as regular chairs seem pretty dull by comparison. Unless you're confident in locating your ceiling joists (and reinforcing if needed) I'd advise you to get a tradesman in to mount this. It's not difficult, but does need a considered installation. Think about all your weight + chair + lapdog +... being supported by a single mounting point to the ceiling..." —ConferenceKing

    Get it from Amazon for $307.72.

    11. A sleek serving tray that looks so sophisticated, people will think you spent so much more on it than you actually did. Look at how gorgeous that green color looks against the gold!

    Promising review: "The tray is an attractive contemporary design and easy to handle. Glasses, mugs, and smaller breakfast/lunch/appetizer plates or bowls fit on it. I both got one for myself and for my best friend’s birthday. My lovely friend who has a low-key aesthetic, mid-century house in California really did love the tray. She told me she uses it to bring her breakfast out of her kitchen most mornings to a more relaxing spot." —N. Erdmann

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in two sizes and four designs).

    12. A stunning 3D wooden wall map if you have a blank wall in your house and you're looking for some wall art that will truly impress everyone who walks in. This is also really great to put in a kid's room — it's beautiful and educational at the same time!

    Promising review: "This is the second set of these I've purchased (bought two different colors to change out when one set is in the laundry), and I completely love them. They are so soft, easy to put the pillows into, and they come out of the laundry looking brand new. Get a couple of different colors and switch out for holidays, or when desiring a quick, easy decor change. I highly recommend them." —Melanie Mastin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in 12 sizes and in 36 colors).

    Promising review: "If you're looking for a nice pop of color in a neutral room, this is it! I inspected the throw carefully and found no issues. No holes or messed-up fringe. Aside from the color, I absolutely love the pattern which adds a simple but noticeable texture over clean white sheets. The throw is lightweight enough that I can see myself using it over the summer but warm enough to keep me cozy in between seasons." —Rosalyn

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three sizes and 26 colors).

    15. A faux cowhide rug if you want that subtly western look in your house but aren't about having a real cowhide in your house for either ethical or budget reasons. This won't break the bank, and you'll be so pleased with how much this asymmetrical rug can transform your space.

    Promising review: "I have owned huge, real hides in the past and paid $500 to $700. I ordered this hoping it would be cute but worried a bit that it would look cheap. Well, it is Amazon, so I knew I could return it and made the leap. SOOOOOO HAPPY I did! It looks real and the gold adds such whimsy! I sprayed with a water/stain repellent and laid the little beauty in my kitchen. Looks AWESOME! My home is mid-century modern with gorgeous high-end pieces and art. This lovely gem is on my tile floor adds such warmth and joy. When the light comes through the windows and lights up the gold, I cannot help but smile! Amazing and fun! LOVE!!!!! Would ABSOLUTELY purchase over and over and over! Perfection!" —Frog Hop

    Get it from Amazon for $48.55+ (available in six sizes and six colors).

    16. Or this braided area rug to give your room the oomph it needs. Seriously — this thing is so gorgeous, you could place it in your living room and not have to add much other decor.

    Rugs USA

    Promising review: "I love Rugs USA and it's the only place I buy my rugs! This new addition is so beautiful in my entryway and the colors are so vibrant and I think it's durable enough to last several years, and it was a great price, too!!" —Vanessa Z.

    Get it from Rugs USA for $32.60+ (originally $81.50+; available in 30 sizes and three color schemes).

    17. Velvet curtains that are as beautiful as they are functional. Hang them high and wide, like in the photo below, to make your windows appear bigger!

    Promising review: "These are beautiful curtains! Certainly feel like they are from a swanky hotel. They are right in the middle of heavy to light. I don’t use them for blackout purposes only for decor. They would block light but it wouldn’t be fully blackout. For the price you can’t beat the quality and the look." —Jennifer Lou

    Get them on Amazon for $29.99+ per 84" panel (available in four lengths and eight colors).

    18. A dog bed, which is much more pleasing to look at than those ugly, lumpy dog beds from the pet store. These actually come in colorful, fun patterns that complement your home decor instead of sticking out like an eyesore.

    Laylo Pets

    You'll love the machine-washable knitted cover if your pup is accident-prone!

    Laylo is a woman-founded small business that believes form is just as important as function. They update designs every few months, in keeping with global trends. Laylo is based in Brooklyn, New York.

    Promising review: "This dog bed came quickly and is incredibly durable. We got this for our older large dog and have two puppies (nonstop chewers) in the house. This bed has held up so well to the pups teething on everything and the ability to clean the cover is priceless, in addition to the sleek, classy design. It has a nonslip bottom unlike any other bed I've seen, again incredibly durable. Looking forward to purchasing more for the smaller dogs soon." —malletangel2003

    Get it from Laylo Pets on Etsy for $49+ (available in eight styles and three fabrics).

    19. A 20-piece set of rainbow or rose-gold flatware that's eye-catching, playful, and anything but boring. It'll make every dinner you spend at home feel like an ~event~.

    two spoons, a knife, and two forks in rose gold
    two spoons, a knife, and two forks in rainbow colored

    You'll receive four sets of flatware, each set with a dinner spoon, a dinner fork, a dinner knife, a teaspoon, and a tea fork.

    Promising review: "Purchased two sets for my new apartment and have had them a week. They are a perfect weight and did not arrive damaged. I hand wash them only with fragrance-free Seventh Generation soap. If you put them in the dishwasher or use acidic soaps (with orange or lemon scents) the gold will wear. However, this is for ANY set of copper-/gold-plated silverware even if it comes from Crate & Barrel, which is quadruple the cost. Perfect value and looking forward to continued use at my new home." —Keiana M.

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in nine colors).

    20. A set of geode bookends to place around your favorite books so visitors will be sure to notice how well-read you are.

    They also look pretty dang gorgeous just sitting there by themselves!

    Promising review: "Love it — the rocks are BEAUTIFUL. These are great book holders. I have them across my fireplace mantle and have had nothing but compliments. Highly recommended for the crystal quality and I’ll definitely be ordering more in other colors in the future. Thanks." —Gage

    Get a pair from Amazon for $28.88+ (available in six colors and four weights).

    the pale pink shower curtain printed with colorful flowers, squiggles, and an abstract face

    Promising review: "Cute shower curtain to mix up the bathroom. The print is very cute and goes well with the light pink tiles in my bathroom. The print is very accurate to the picture, colors are just as vibrant, and the picture is clear. It is as good of a shower curtain as any; not particularly nice but it's not see-through and it dries quickly when it gets wet." —Nicole Adler

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes).
