    1. A pretty floral printed rug that can transform any space in a flash... and also cover up that ugly flooring you just don't know what to do with.

    2. An accent chair to create the book nook of your dreams and maybe even convince you to make a dent in that TBR list instead of binging New Girl again.

    3. A surprisingly realistic faux plant so you can add some greenery to your space — you'll be shocked at what a difference this low-effort change makes in any room.

    4. A set of nine gallery wall frames that will fill up a big space but also help you move away from only having your fave pics on your phone and instead actually displaying those memories on your wall.

    5. A woven counter height bar stool to help you achieve that effortless coastal grandmother look. Put on a little Van Morrison, make yourself a pour-over coffee, and luxuriate in the beautiful life you've made for yourself.

    6. A roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper because you've always wanted to do something bold with that beige wall but you've never wanted to invest in something permanent. This is a low-stakes way to try something new that just feels more... you.

    12. A peel-and-stick tile set aka the real MVP of DIY home improvement. It's easy to execute and you'll get the wow factor you've been looking for without having to drop heaps of cash.

    15. A rolling triple laundry sorter with a hang bar because while you may not have a separate laundry room, you can still get that super organized look regardless. Sadly, folding the laundry is still on you.

    16. A natural wood floor mirror that will help make your room look larger than it actually is (win!). It's also perfect for that last-minute 'fit check before you head out the door.

    17. A Waterpik dual-mode shower head sure to be your favorite bathroom update, um, EVER. With six spray settings (including "PowerPulse Therapeutic Massage"), you're going to need to budget an extra 10–15 minutes for this spa-like experience each morning — plan accordingly!

    18. A four-piece stainless-steel bathroom hardware set to update the whole look of the space in one fell swoop. All you need is one hour and a screwdriver (and maybe a good podcast to listen to, too!) and you'll suddenly have a brand new WC.

    19. A wood-top kitchen cart that's super versatile (it's a coffee bar! a food prep station! a place for all those random kitchen gadgets you can't live without!) and will give you those kitchen island vibes — without, you know, a whole reno.

    20. A Google Nest digital front door lock aka the ultimate upgrade for the front of the house. You never have to worry about forgetting (or, let's be honest, losing) your keys again. Just type the code into this bad boy and boom! you're inside. You can also use the Nest app to securely give passcodes to your fam and friends if you're out of town.

    21. A six-pack of wireless, remote-controlled puck lights you can install all over the house to really shine a spotlight on your home improvement skills. Design tip: Stick these in a sconce or light fixture if you want to add brightness to a room without dealing with electrical wiring.

    22. A machine washable, four-piece slipcover set that can hide years and years of pizza and wine stains. You've loved your comfy couch for years... it's time to give it the little upgrade it deserves.

    23. A four-piece matching towel set because you really are a little too old to be using the free cartoon character beach towel you got in the early aughts. Treat yourself to these!

    24. A 12-piece set of sophisticated stoneware dishes if you've been meaning to replace your hodge-podge collection of dishware for oh, about a decade now. Turn the everyday task of setting the table into the art of ~creating a tablescape~. Hello, Martha!

    25. A four-piece wicker conversation set that will turn your outdoor space into your new favorite spot in the house. Just imagine yourself out there, sipping on something you like and reading a book — we still got some warm weeks left! Take advantage of them!

    26. A writing desk since your work-from-home space needs a bit of editing as well. Not only will you have a workplace that's conducive to writing the next great American novel (@ me), but you'll also get a little bit of extra storage with it, too!

    the white desk

    27. And a woven TV stand that's simply so much more put together than the one you "borrowed" from your parents' basement all those years ago. It even has space to hide the ancient DVDs you just can't seem to let go of, too!
