    These beauties start off small but their vines with heart-shaped leaves can grow long enough to wrap so gracefully around the legs of a plant stand or to be stretched across any surface you put it on. You want greenery? You'll def get it with the Pothos. It thrives in medium to low light and only needs to be watered once weekly.

    Promising review: "They are packaged really well and arrived really healthy. They have been growing like weeds since! There are tons of new leaves in the past two weeks. I just need to find some time to repot them now!" β€”Manda2Dara

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (free shipping).

    2. A light curtain to cloak your room in a soft, pretty glow and an overall relaxing mood. The curtain is waterproof, has eight light settings controlled by a remote, and can be used indoors or outdoors. Layer the light strings with sheer curtains to add to your room's ambience.

    amazon.com

    By the way, lots of reviewers noted that these curtains can be difficult to hang up by yourself because the lights get tangled but many shared a hack: Don't untie the long lights from each other until you've already hung up the curtain.

    Promising review: "I am so in love with these lights! They were so easy to put up (took me about five minutes). They add such beauty to my room. I am so happy with this purchase." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 and the sheer curtains for $15.99+ (available in 16 sizes and 19 colors).

    3. A staircase wicker basket so you can ~step~ up your home decor AND your de-cluttering game with something unbe~weave~ably stylish.

    The wicker basket is sitting on a carpeted staircase. It's shaped like a square with a corner cut out. That cutout corner is what sits on the steps.

    Promising review: "This does the job! I needed this to keep clutter down on the stairs. It's sturdy, fits well, and is appealing to the eye." β€”Katharine

    Get one from Wayfair for $49.99 (free shipping) OR from Amazon for $54 (free shipping).

    4. Moon cycle garland to give any empty wall space in your home the golden touch.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was pretty nervous ordering this because there weren't a ton of reviews on the gold moon phase. When this arrived I thought I would have to assemble it but it was already put together and nicely packaged so the chains didn't tangle! The quality is so much better than I expected and you can see in my pictures the moons are pretty thick/heavy. They gave me gold matching screws to hang it but I just used a thumbtack instead. Love this!" β€”Holly Grote

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in silver and black and in three sizes).

    5. A stain-resistant area rug that'll handle all the foot traffic and oopsie-daisy spills you might have to give it while giving your home a simple yet very pretty look.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous! This is exactly what we needed for our family room β€” the pattern and pile height are great because they will hide a lot of foot traffic. It isn't so thick that it is a trip hazard, and once we get the one corner to lay flat (will just take a little weight for a day or two), it will be perfect. The colors are true to what I saw on the monitor, and with it being a multi-color/non-specific patterned rug, it should go well with many different decorating choices should we change it up a little or decide to put in a different room down the road." β€”Julie

    Get it from Wayfair for $40.99+ (originally $200; available in three colors and 11 sizes).

    6. A multi-tiered plant stand to give your green babies a proper throne to perch on.

    A metal plant stand with ends that curl up. It has one tier at the top, two on the right side, and another tier on the left side so the plants will be asymmetrically placed
    Wayfair

    Promising review: "This is a very nice stand for my plants. They look beautiful sitting on each tier. It is exactly what I was looking for to sit in front of my window for morning sunshine. It holds 10-inch pots and is very sturdy. You won’t be disappointed." β€”Patricia

    Get it from Wayfair for $51.99.

    7. A crystal brush holder that'll bring the razzle-dazzle wherever you need it in your house. By the way, reviewers used it to hold way more than just brushes. This multipurpose container can work as a flower vase, a pencil holder, or a toothbrush cup!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this to put my brushes and combs in and it’s gorgeous. It is a great addition to my bathroom and a great place to store my brushes and combs. I ordered the gold one and the pictures don’t do it justice. I really like the gems; they're super pretty. It gives the room an elegant touch. The holder is a good size that allows you to fit a few brushes and combs in it. It's very sturdy and durable. My daughter has already snuck off with it a few times and so far, surprisingly no harm has been done. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase." β€”Kristine

    Get it from Amazon for $11.86 (available in silver and gold).

    8. Peel-and-stick staircase stickers designed to turn the hard floor steps in your home into their own masterpiece.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "With the new normal of 2020, I find myself finding ways to enjoy my surroundings at home. This project was a lot easier than I expected and brings a bit of fun inside. I did buy a yardstick and angle ruler (I think that's what it's called) to help with the measurements. We also had a measuring tape for the stairs. We live in a split level home so our steps are split. The pack was one short so we used contact paper for the final step. This was just what I expected and we enjoy the indoor artwork." β€”Samantha Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 16 prints; free shipping).

    9. Floating bookshelves so you can ~elevate~ your home decor and give yourself a little extra space to store stuff.

    "I love my floating bookshelves because they save a lot of space and since I colorized them, they look like fun decor in my room. It definitely helps me get excited about reading more since they're so cute and visible. The shelves were also super easy to hang and, as you can see, they're very sturdy."

    Get them from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in two colors, in two sizes, and in singles or a set; free shipping) or The Container Store for $34.99 (available in a pack of three).

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE THEM! I just wanted something pretty to look at in my bedroom so I put them on my wall. I put them up over a week ago and wanted to wait before giving my review. So far, ONLY ONE has fallen and it was one that was on my dresser that I believe I stuck there and rearranged it so partially my fault. I can positively say they will stay on walls and pictures with NO PROBLEM as long as you follow the directions." β€”Gabrielle

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Instead of the remotes being scattered on top of each other and taking up the entire top of my little chair-side stand...Voila! This is a good little product. It's nicely made and heavy enough to not tip with the taller remote in it. I tucked a couple of other little goodies in the extra pockets and now my nail file is handy to have nearby. So, this little caddy turned clutter into something more organized and attractive." β€”C. Heisten

    20. Loteria-themed art β€” inspired by the VERY fun, bingo-style game most popular in the Latinx community β€” because if your walls are bare, then you'll probably wanna "Hit 'Em Up" (πŸŽ΅πŸ˜‹) with something extra funky.

    "When I was decorating my new dining room, the first thing that crossed my mind was to hang photos of my favorite foods on the walls. The next thing that came to mind was the thought of my favorite Nigerian foods and how satisfying it would be to see photos of them on the walls. I hope these images bring life to your space!" β€”Yang (the owner)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    I fell in love at first sight with the elegant knot at the top of the curtains, which was easy to tie IRL (two seconds and you're literally done). They came in an extra-long length for my floor-to-ceiling window and made my room look super sophisticated. Also? They were AFFORDABLE AS ALL HECK. Now, I plan to buy two more! Aside from a mattress I adore, this is my favorite Amazon purchase in my entire Amazon-purchasing LIFE. FYI, I ordered these in the spice red to match a quilt I own and well, "perfect" isn't even the best word to describe it.

    Promising review: "These curtains are beautiful!!! I am so in love with them! I feel like they brought life to my bedroom. I bought the white in a size 50 x 108 and that was perfect. They are a shiny material which I didn’t mind and actually loved that. The knots are a little extra step but nothing crazy. I would purchase again!" β€”Designismylife84

    Promising review: "These are super adorable and highly functional. The quality and aesthetic of these blinged-out hooks are remarkable. I was expecting an OK or even good product for the more-than-reasonable price. This product exceeded my expectations. It gives my bathroom that chic look without overdoing it. This is just the upgrade I was looking for." β€”Q

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors and packs of 12).
