    1. A prismatic window film that not only provides privacy from the outside world, but creates literal rainbows all over your home when the light shines through.,

    Check out BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell's full write-up on this rainbow window film.

    Promising review: "I can't tell you how surprised and delighted we were at the rainbow effect this film has. I bought it to make a window overlooking the street more private, and I thought I would appreciate seeing the rainbow colors on the window itself. But then when the light was shining on it at the right angle, it cast these beautiful rainbow colors on the wall. So I bought a second roll to put on one of our master bedroom windows that overlooks our neighbor's patio so I don't have to draw the curtains. In the morning now, the light comes in at just the right angle to pass through the rainbow prism and cast beautiful rainbow colors on the wall." —J.B.

    2. A velvet ottoman to add a pop of color to your interior, especially if you play it safe with warm neutrals or lots of grays.

    Promising review: "Wanted two stools that not only finish the look of the living room but also offer decent place to sit. Met both the requirements and in addition they look fancy, too." —Meghna Saxena

    Get it from Amazon for $108.72+ (available in six colors).

    3. A quilt set with major fall vibes so you can colorfully embrace the best season. The quilt's reversible, so once you get tired of looking at woodland creatures, you can flip it over for white flowers on a cobalt-blue background.


    Promising review: "After looking at what seemed like hundreds of bed covers, this one really stood out. It isn't flowers or weird geometrics. It's an interesting woodland grouping of animals and leaves with autumnal colors and setting. The quality is very good. I'm using an ivory bedskirt with it and couldn't be happier." —RWMo

    Get it from Amazon for $73.44+ (available in twin, full/queen, and king sizes).

    4. A panel of blue velvet curtains to black out the sun and also add a pop of color to your room. These window treatments will block out 75% of sunlight and help reduce your electricity bill because you won't need to blast the air-conditioning as much. Plus, they're machine washable (you never know!).

    Promising review: "OK, I am beyond thrilled with these curtains, they are very soft and solid (think heavyweight upholstery). They keep the light out and help keep the room noticeably cooler — the windows are south facing and get full sun all day — this room gets hot in summer and the curtains make it so much nicer. I'd give these curtains a 10 if I could. Very happy and will be ordering more as rooms get remodeled." —Angelia Olson

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+/panel (available in four sizes and nine colors).

    5. A set of orange-and-white plaid pillow covers that'll add a bit of color to a neutral space. Because they're covers and not full-blown pillows, once we're out of autumn you can just fold them up and store them out of sight until next year.

    Reviewer's orange and white plaid pillows are shown in a basket

    Promising review: "These are a great price! Recently I realized, why in the world am I buying all these pillows and having to store the seasonal pillows when out of season??? I should just buy pillowcases and switch them out! That way I don’t have to store a mass amount of pillows and it’s cheaper and better for the environment ultimately. These pillowcases were perfect for my fall seasonal pillow display! True to color as pictured. The material feels like a softer burlap texture. It’s definitely true to the fall theme!" —Review Queen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in seven sizes and 11 colors) and a set of two pillow inserts for $9.74+ (available in 10 sizes).

    6. A set of dark green (though there are 14 great colors to choose from) silk-like pillowcases to jazz up your neutral bedding. The ultra-silky material is nonabrasive, which will help with preventing hair breakage.

    Promising Review: "We have bought at least six different brands of these kinds of pillowcases over the years via Amazon. We always order standard-size pillowcases but invariably, we end up with queen-size ones. These standard-size pillowcases really are standard size. They fit our pillows perfectly. And though all the brands that advertise under the 'satin' or 'sateen' or 'silk' pillowcase category, represent that their products are, or 'feel like' silk, these pillowcases really do feel silky. We have only washed them (cold water and line-dried only) a few times, but they seem as though they will hold up. I sure hope so. They are the best and most comfortable that we have yet to find on Amazon." —George Scarlatta

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four sizes and 14 colors).

    7. A blush pink sofa with a tufted seat that effortlessly blends a boho style with modern lines. It's 84" long — aka 7 feet — so you can actually stretch your legs all the way out and take a much deserved nap.

    8. Some gold and dark-blue velvet barstools to add instant glam to any kitchen. The foot rail is a nice touch — how many times have you sat at a barstool and awkwardly had your feet dangle off a foot from the floor?

    Get it from Amazon for $102.53+ (available in five colors).

    12. A mid-century modern cement planter with leaves carved into it. The standard for planters is to be a neutral tone like terra-cotta or brass, so it's nice to see one that instead adds a pop of color to your interior.

    Reviewer's pink planter with etched leaves has a leafy plant in it

    Promising review: "I was regretting spending a little more than my usual but I loved this design and color. I’m so happy I got it. I regret nothing. First the packaging was perfect!

I am a bartender by trade and I have sat on some barstools, let me tell you, the rubber feet make these stools actually comfortable! They are bright, beautiful, sturdy, and the perfect height! The color is true to the online pictures! One of my favorite purchases to date!" —Heatherbrook Young

    Get it from Amazon for $92.99+ (available in packs of two or four and 12 colors).

    Reviewer's series of photos shows the color-changing shower head in a bathtub

    Promising review: "Our old showerhead broke, got this as a quick affordable replacement and thought the light would be funny. It’s actually so amazing!! Like a spa at home LOL, nice to shower in the dark before bed. The light is enough to light up the bathroom in the dark but not blinding. The water pressure on this thing is actually great. Lightweight showerhead, only one speed setting. You can’t change the lights as they change on their own and it runs with the flow of the water. Hose is long enough to still bathe our dogs in the tub, too. Great value for the price."—Gabby

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    23. A knitted, textured throw blanket that comes in over 25 colors and has over 19,000 5-star ratings! With that many color options, there's definitely something for everyone.

    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

    Reviewer's tissue box that looks like a Rubik's Cube on a table

    Promising review: "Love this tissue box! My office is what I call the 'quirky' room in my house, and this fits in perfectly. When I first opened the package I wasn’t impressed thinking the plastic was all scratched. Turned out that each square has protective plastic on it to prevent just that. It’s sturdy and well made — love that it has a bottom cover that attaches with tiny magnets — keeps the tissue box from falling out whenever you pick it up. Highly recommend!" —PamelaJR

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    26. A trendy iridescent and wavy mirror to add a statement piece to any wall. Because it's glass, the colors actually change depending on how the light is hitting it (for instance, the two mirrors pictured below are actually the exact same one!).

    Promising review: "I ordered the wiggly reflector for my daughters’ new room and it is absolutely stunning! The picture does no justice.

    29. A tiny lamp that'll create a full-blown sunset or sunrise right in your room. Perfect for someone whose space doesn't get an adequate amount of natural light and wants to add a pop of color to their space.,

    Promising review: "I ordered this lamp as a gift for my husband. We just set up a room in the basement where he keeps his records, films, musical instruments and other fun stuff. We call it the music listening room — he has a stressful job so he really enjoys going down to the basement and listening to a record and turning on some nice mood lighting. I ordered the sunset lamp as a complement to the theme of the room and we just love it. The closer you are to the wall, the more of a defined a circle it will cast, and the farther back you move the lamp you will see more of an ambient light instead. It’s a really cool light that looks great next to our other eclectic lights, lava lamps and such. When not in use, the lamp is very small and discreet, just a few inches high and sits on the desk in the room." —MBA Squared

    Promising review: "This record player is amazing!

It sounds great and plays the records great! So happy with this purchase. I 100% recommend it." —Sabrina and Gunnar

    Reviewer's blue cabinet in shown in a living room

    Promising review: "I am SO happy with this cabinet! The Caribbean Blue is GORGEOUS!! Nice pop of color in my living room! I would advise having two people put it together. Screwing the hinges in was difficult. One of the screws stripped and the door hangs a bit uneven now. I take the blame because I don't think it would have happened if I had someone helping me. The shelf inside is adjustable. It is one large shelf. The cabinet is solid. HIGHLY recommend!!" —Karen
