    35 Things That'll Basically Make Your Home Look Like It's Straight Out Of A Magazine

    Let's just hope your friends don't ~dwell~ on the fact that your place looks plucked straight out of a magazine.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A metal wall mirror with an embroidery hoop-turned mirror vibe that's ~sew~ cool you're gonna want it hanging around your place forever!


    Promising review: "I purchased two of these mirrors for a recent master bathroom remodel. They are perfect! The color of the metal is really pretty, and they have the right amount of a rustic look. They were easy to hang and fit really nicely over each sink of the double sink vanity. The price was great as I had seen others that looked similar but were more expensive." —Darcy Deloach

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in three colors).

    2. A peel-and-stick wallpaper that'll brighten up your home with its marvelous, Mediterranean tile touch.


    Promising review: "I am IN LOVE. I bought this to use as a backsplash in my rented studio apartment kitchen, which has potential to be pretty but really needs some help. I ordered two rolls thinking that if I liked it in my kitchen, I’d order more to use on the wall behind my bar cart. I loved it so much when it came in that I decided to go ahead and put it up on the big wall and deal with the kitchen later. The pattern is so easy to line up and it looks so good! My tiny, dark apartment instantly looked bigger and brighter. Even up close I can’t tell where the seams are. It was super easy to put up by myself, though I would recommend having another person to help if possible because it would have taken a lot less time if I’d had someone to hold it steady while I lined up the edges. If I could give six stars I would. It’s expensive but worth every penny!" —Lizzy

    Get it from Amazon on sale for $29.99+ (originally $34.99+ and available in three colors).

    3. A velvet daybed – a "bed" this beautiful is gonna make you glad you chose to go the studio apartment route. This pretty piece deserves to seen at all times, not shoved away in a room specifically made to sleep in!


    Promising review: "This is a good-looking, well-made piece of furniture being used in a studio apartment instead of a regular bed to save space. It is plenty comfortable for an adult to use nightly. We get lots of compliments on the design." —Lola

    Get it from Amazon on sale for $276.22+ (originally $383+ and available in two materials, five colors, and two sizes).

    5. A driftwood wind chime – a delicate and delightful shift from handwoven weavings that'll add a soft and airy touch to any space.


    Promising review: "This is a great piece for my coastal decor. I am always looking for beach pieces that are more subdued and not so tropical. This was exactly what I was hoping for, it looks like items I would have collected on my local So Cal beach. The sea glass pieces are a lovely soft shade of blue. It is bigger than I expected, which was also a plus." —Beachmom2boys

    Urban Outfitters

    8. A pair of metal planters that'll get so many compliments you'll love having them around your place.


    Promising review: "These are the perfect addition to your mid-century modern, boho, farmhouse, or whatever style you're rocking indoor jungle! I love the versatility of hanging them alone or connecting two or more together! They fit a standard 6” grower pot inside which allows you to remove the plant for easy watering. I highly recommend these!!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99.

    9. A sideboard buffet – it's gonna enhance your modern farmhouse aesthetic with its bold hardware, reclaimed wood, and warm white paint.


    Promising review: "Wow, this unit is absolutely fantastic. It literally shipped in two days. I will admit, I was overwhelmed and intimidated by how many pieces and parts it came with...but once I got started putting it together, it really was a breeze. The wood color is gorgeous and matches the rest of my 'farmhouse' theme perfectly! I’m just beyond thrilled. If you’re debating this purchase, do it. It’s a solid, very sturdy, beautiful piece of furniture and you can’t beat the price either." —Victoria Cossota

    Get it from Amazon for $131.93.

    10. An iridescent wall mirror with a small storage shelf and a dazzling shine – grab this for your bare bathroom walls and they won't know hit them when the sun shines in!

    11. A face vase sure to be the cool, fashionable friend your plant babies have always wanted.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in four styles).

    12. A pair of outlet lights so you can have your rooms shine even at nighttime, without bulky night lights taking up space.


    Promising review: "I don't like night lights because they take up the wall outlet, so this was the perfect solution. I put it in the guest bath and at night with the bathroom door open this provides just enough light to guide a person to the bathroom without blinding them. I ended up putting two on my hallway switches as well. What a great product." —LMK

    Get it from Amazon for $15.98.

    13. An upholstered bed that'll be worth shelling out every penny for.

    Pottery Barn Teen

    Get it from Pottery Barn Teen for $799+ (available in two sizes).

    14. A steel log hoop to add a rustic touch to your living room and make your home feel very cozy. Incredibly cozy. You ~wood~ not believe how cozy.,

    Promising review: "I love love love this!!! Oh my gosh. This is the best wood storage ever. I put it together myself and, due to a comment I read that said it was wobbly, I re-tightened the screws once all screws were in place. It holds 30-40 pieces of wood. This is absolutely perfect in the house." —TheDawnAmber

    Get it from Amazon for $50.90.

    15. A bold swivel chair with enough padding to keep you comfy all day and enough pow to make your place look complete.


    Promising review: "I love this chair. It is exactly what I hoped it would be, comfy and a nice addition to my living room. I ordered the straw (yellow) color, and it matches what I saw on my monitor – mustard-yellow/golden, rather than bright yellow. The chair is wide and low and would be great for a child but it's also fine for tall-ish person (I'm five-nine). The swivel feature is just plain fun. I took a long time trying to find the right chair, and I'm glad I chose this one." —Sinatra Fan

    Get it from Amazon for $243.39+ (available in two colors).

    16. An entryway table made with multiple materials, so you can know this will complement every piece in your place.


    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting to like this console as much as I do. The gray sliding tray is fun and great for covering up things you don't want to show off. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! This is a very cool piece of furniture." —homegirl

    Get it from Amazon for $212.33.

    17. A faux cowhide rug so darn good lookin' all your friends are gonna wanna mooove into your place.


    Promising review: "This rug is top-notch. Our new puppy had an accident on it and I was petrified it was ruined. I threw it in the washer on gentle with a mild detergent and then hug it up overnight to dry. It’s like new but even softer!!! I LOOOVE this rug!!! I would buy it again and again!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three sizes).

    18. A rolling bar cart for keeping your drink fixin's in one place...that's able to move wherever you want it.


    Promising review: "This bar cart was for our little log cabin in the mountains. I searched for quite a while as it needed to be smaller, blend with casual southwestern decor, and be sturdy enough to move around for parties. The cart fulfills all my requirements. It was super easy to put together, it took about 20 minutes. I’m very pleased and highly recommend it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon on sale for $78.40+ (originally $99.99).

    19. A reading nook bookcase that'll save floor space and give your kiddo's room a totally personalized touch.


    Promising review: "This took about an hour and 15 minutes to assemble, which is great considering I’m really not a handy person. The lower cubicles are quite short, which did impose a limit on which books we could put in, but the upper two are taller so it all worked out. It's quite sturdy and my kids are really excited to sit on it and read!" —CBIsrael

    Get it from Amazon for $88.57.

    20. A wire basket so even your pantry can look picture perfect.


    Promising review: "I love these baskets. They have lots of space and look great in my pantry." —Yesenia

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four styles).

    21. An iridescent headboard that'll look positively dreamy in your bedroom.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This headboard is so unique! I wasn’t sure how vivid the colors would be in person, but when it showed up I was blown away. The quality is pretty great!" —Joshuasmiller614

    Get it on sale from Urban Outfitters for $399.

    22. A polka dot switch plate to totally ~switch~ up your space even if you don't have room for new furniture or decor.


    Promising review: "These adorable gems really add so much character to my master bedroom! They add the perfect amount of art/glam. I highly recommend them!" —Spasija

    Get it from Anthropologie for $28+ (available in three sizes).

    23. A milk bath print that's sure to look ~dairy~ stunning in your space.


    Get it from Limitless Design on Society6 for $17.59+ (available in five sizes).

    24. A set of copper canisters so you can have some consistency on your counter tops.


    Promising review: "I just moved into a new apartment and my girlfriend and I have been exploring a lot of different organization options. We got these sort of on a whim because they looked really cool and, for canisters, they aren't too expensive. They're super awesome! They're packaged really well (nested into each other) and they are a very durable quality that'll probably last us multiple years. The lids have a nice rubber seal around the edges, so you get a really nice airtight fit. We keep a variety of stuff in these, but I'm thinking without the lids they would even look pretty cool to store utensils in for organization. Highly recommend." —Sean

    Get four from Amazon for $42.95.

    25. A colorful distressed rug for realists who want a lovely rug designed for the slips, stains, and spills that happen when you let your family actually live in the living room.


    Promising review: "I love it! I bought this to replace a smaller rug I had in the space. This has nice, vivid colors. I definitely needed the felt pad I ordered under it due to how thin it is, but so did my last rug. This is a lovely rug at a nice price, and I did some serious looking around before making this purchase." —Angelle

    Get it from Amazon for $147.28+ (available in eight colors and numerous sizes/shapes).

    26. A rustic bench that'll make sitting a special occasion.


    Promising review: "I purchased this bench for our front entryway and LOVE it! It is sturdy and assembly was easily accomplished by one person. The style and look of the wood fits perfectly in our new home." —Lorraine

    Get it from Amazon for $133.57+ (available in three colors and two sizes).

    27. A psychedelic removable wallpaper to make a statement no matter where you stick it.


    Promising review: "I love this stuff! The colors are accurate in the pictures. I used it to create an accent wall in my daughter’s room. I had never used it before but figured it couldn’t be too hard. I was right! I did the whole wall (10 feet tall by 30 inches wide) in about 25 minutes. It looks really good and is easy to adjust. I plan to use it to do more projects!" —Alexandra Snyder

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    28. A mint stool for raising your kid up and raising the bar when it comes to necessary toddler decor.


    Promising review: "This is very cute and very easy to assemble. It arrived when expected and in new condition. It's the perfect height for my 2-year-old to reach the faucet. It's a little heavy for her to pick up but she can push it around just fine." —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95.

    31. A media console so good lookin' you might be staring at it instead of the TV you bought it for in the first place.


    Promising review: "This product is so nice! The price was affordable and the shipment came on time. It was super easy to assemble and all the pieces fit. The kicker was the instruction booklet, my daughter and I really had a good time reading it!! Way to go. That was a nice surprise. This was a great purchase." —Fumie & Takarrah Presley

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

    32. A bright red metal bed frame that's gonna give the sleepiest room in your house something that really wakes it up.


    Promising review: "This is a classic camp style bed in a great color. It was easy to set up. I bought the queen sized bed to go in our tiny house. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the queen bed frame is actually two twins that can be bolted together. I skipped bolting them to have the option of using them as twin beds if the need arrises." —C. Bridges

    Get it from Amazon for $78.07+ (available in nine colors and three sizes).

    33. A woven basket for adding depth to a room (and a hiding place for all the things you quickly "clean" when guests arrive).

    Promising review: "I love this and so does my cat. It's such a great looking design and looks great on my wall. My only criticism is the dome was a little tricky to screw onto the main part. It isn't complicated its just a little awkward. Apart from that this cat bed/spaceship is awesome!" —Tom B

    Get it from Amazon for $135 (available in two colors).
