    1. A circular reflective mirror to bring some iridescent life to your walls.

    Urban Outfitters

    Soo many reviewers noted that it looks just like the photos while lots of others noted that it's even prettier IRL! They used it as a vanity mirror, a decorative piece to hang over their beds, a vanity tray, and as a regular mirror to take fun photos for Insta. Also, just so you have the proper idea about the size it'll be — this baby is about 14 inches in diameter, so a bit over a foot wide.

    Promising review: "It is perfectly sized for an accent mirror. I did use it as a mini-tray for a short time which was cute. It catches more light hanging from the wall. I would recommend to anyone wanting to add whimsical or happy colors to their room." —Allikatk.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49.

    2. Window film with an iridescent finish that'll give you all the privacy you want in your home (especially if you're not into curtains or shutters) while also splashing little rainbows in your home depending on the sunshine each day.

    Your home is going to be your little sanctuary of (private) happiness and isn't that just great?! 🌈😊

    Promising review: "I actually loved all the natural light in my shop. However, summer here in the South is a scorcher and there was just way too much heat penetrating through my windows. This product was exactly what I needed. I didn’t have to sacrifice my bright natural light and the room instantly dropped 10 degrees after installing the film. It is very thick and durable with a very pretty design. I had absolutely no trouble with the install. While the backing was still on, I loosely taped the film onto the window and cut out to the approximate size leaving a small amount of overhang. I used a few drops of Dawn mixed with water in an old Windex bottle. To me, that is the one make or break step to any window film. Douse both the window And film with soapy water. The wetter the better so you can move it around easily! I also invested in actual window tint squeegees years ago (they don’t cost that much) and believe they are way easier to work with... I finished with a straight razor blade to cut away any overhang and those super irritating places where the silicone bulges out around the frame. All in all, it took approximately 20 minutes per window from start to finish and I could not be happier!!! 😁 Bonus feature: When the sun shines directly through, it reflects huge rainbows 🌈 and tie-dye spheres all over the entire room!!!!!! Wow & Yay 🤩" —Raynie Boley

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in seven size options).

    Get it from Amazon for $78 (also available in four additional finishes).

    4. Couch covers in case you're over your current seating situation but your bank account isn't really interested in the cost of a brand-new one. These will help you switch things up while playing nice with your wallet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome slipcover. I have two sofa sleepers in my bonus room that I have had for about 20 years. I didn’t want to get anything new since these are rarely used. I have been looking for slipcovers for a long time and noticed these over the weekend. I finally decided to buy one to see how it worked out. I ordered another one yesterday. I wanted the navy but it wasn’t available so I ordered another red... They will transform your room. They are so easy to put on your sofa and feel nice." —Donna B.

    Get them from Amazon for $34.84+ (available in three sizes and 30 colors).

    Amazon

    Heads up: A few reviewers jazzed it up even more with marble sticky paper on each shelf. And yes, you most certainly do deserve to be that bougie with your home decor. Go for it, love!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wanted a rack to hold wine bottles instead of just putting them on top of the refrigerator and all of the ones that you put on the counter were $20–$40. Then, I saw this one and liked the looks of it. I have had it on my wall for a couple of weeks now and love it! It actually holds five normal bottles of wine or four of the big ones. It's very well made and of great value.." —KMVOLZ

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in two "home" font styles).

    Pepper Palm / Etsy

    Btw, these are by Pepper Palm — a Black-owned business based in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Promising review: "Such a cute pot! I actually bought two because I love them so much. I got this one because it looks a little like the plant I have. The hand-painted designs are unique and the paint is vibrant and beautiful. There's a huge drainage hole at the bottom and the inside of the pot doesn't seem to be glazed. I can't wait to see my Ficus Tineke grow big and tall in this work of art. Can't wait to order more in the future!" —Rochelle Sumner

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore these coasters! I saw them shortly after I started following Meraki Fusion Art on Instagram and I knew I had to have them. The gold is perfect for my current decor, but I love how she can make custom colors and may order another set in the future. The quality is great. They are lightweight, won’t scratch my glass table, and are such a unique statement piece. I also love that Becki is local. I love supporting local artists!" —Brittany G.

    amazon.com

    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 ambiance. 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 decided to make my room very earthy and zen. My room is covered in succulents and faux plants, and these vines! I’ve bought them three times now and I love them. They are perfect and can be used for anything. The leaves on the vines don’t fall off, unlike other vines I’ve purchased. Perfect for whatever the occasion is, and I’m sure these would be beautiful for wedding decorating or other stuff..." —Amei Ayuel

    18. 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!" —Holly Grote

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

    19. A giant leaning mirror made of shatter-proof glass so you can decorate your home with the finest thing already in it: YOU! :)

    rectangular full-length mirror with a gold frame
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Absolutely stunning, packaged very well, and easy to stand up. I’m a TALL girl (a little over 5-foot-10) and having a mirror that was large enough for me was very important. This does exactly that but isn’t so big that it takes up too much space. The gold trim is super classy and adds an expensive looking quality to the mirror and my room. Overall amazing and definitely worth the buy!" —Bria Million

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in eight styles).

    20. 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." —Samantha Garcia

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

    21. A ceramic pencil cup that you'll never fix your ~lips~ to say you wish you hadn't bought because it'll always be just that cute yet sophisticated sitting on your dresser or desk.

    "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!" —Yang (the owner)

    a pink bookshelf with three big shelves, two smaller shelves between them, and gold legs
    Target

    I would probably marry this bookshelf if I could because it's just that stunning and I'd like it to have and to hold forever. Since there's no room in my house for anything other than the skinny plain white one I have, I suggest you get this so I can live vicariously through your chic book display.

    Promising review: "The bookshelf looks exactly as designed and was pretty straightforward to put together. There was not a scratch on it which is rare for items delivered these days. There was a slight smell to the bookshelf for three days but I'm still giving five stars because I'm very happy with it." —Lex V

    Get it from Target for $159.99 or from Wayfair for $187.99 (available in five colors).

    25. Mason jar light sconces that'll brighten up your space with a lil' rustic shine. They feature two LED strips responsible for turning the jars into soft light sources that'll create the ambience in your home.

    amazon.com

No need to fear the DIY part though, as lots of reviewers noted that this set only took a few minutes to pull together. Also, the LED lights work with AA batteries or flat batteries CR2032 which are sold separately yet easy to get.

    Cynthia / Wayfair, Danielle / Wayfair

    Promising review: "These ottomans are great because they’re so soft and stylish. I put them at the end of my bed and use them as a chair for my desk. The picture shown doesn’t even do it justice! I did have an issue with two screws (on one ottoman only) not fitting in the holes properly. Still just as sturdy!" —Camille

    Rust-oleum / Via spraypaint.rustoleum.com

    Btw, the color shown here is called Tropical Leaf green and it's BEAUTIFUL, right? Also, if you're new to crafting, heads up: You'll prob want a sanding sponge to soften any wooden stuff you want to spray paint and primer spray paint to create a white base that will make your color pop more and last longer. It'll make the paint apply more evenly. You could also always make good use of painter's tape to cover up any parts that you don't want the spray to get on. Tape and spray thoroughly!

FYI: Amazon reviewers noted that they put these pretty winged bugs on their walls but also EVERYWHERE else.

    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." —Gabrielle

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four different styles).

    Studio Nom / Etsy
