    50 Random Pieces Of Decor That'll Give Your Home A Serious Aesthetic Upgrade

    These small changes will make a big impact.

    1. A roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper if you want to upgrade your bathroom in a big way without using permanent wallpaper. Because it's peel-and-stick, peel it off when you want to remove it and it'll leave no trace behind.

    2. An upholstered storage ottoman to store stuff like candles, blankets, and more. The lid can be flipped over to create a table!

    Promising review: "I was using a small foldable step stool in my bedroom to reach the top shelves of my wardrobe. But you know, those things aren’t pretty. It wasn’t bringing me joy, just begrudging utility. This ottoman brings me joy. It’s pretty, it’s lightweight so I can move it easily to use it as a step stool, and the storage capacity is perfect for things like my nightly moisturizers, my Kindle and journals, and other little miscellaneous things." —Monica N.

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99 (available in seven colors).

    3. A privacy window film for turning any window into a rainbow factory. When the light hits it, your space will be covered in rainbows. And when the light isn't hitting it, it looks like ornate stained glass. This is a win-win.

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in 11 sizes).

    4. A set of three flickering flameless candles to add instant ambience to any room. You control them with a remote that has a timer and dimmer. Even better: each one is wrapped in an unbreakable plexiglass shell.

    5. A wall-mounted mirror with a shelf so you can feed two birds with one scone, aka check yourself out before heading out and have a place to drop your keys once you come back home.

    6. A bed canopy to add a little pizzazz to your bedroom without nailing anything to the wall. It's meant to hang from the ceiling but the majority of reviewers hang it from the posts of their beds.

    7. A wireless crystal table lamp that casts the most beautiful patterns and shadows when it's turned on. You just tap it to turn it on, and it has three levels of brightness. If you're short on electrical outlets but really need a lamp, this is your best bet — a single charge provides up to seven hours of light.

    Promising review: "The light looks so magical. My favorite part is that you can place it anywhere without having to plug it in. Comes with a USB charger to recharge the battery. Also dimmable. Perfect night light for reading." —Jasmine

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    8. A jewelry stand in the shape of a hand that can hold a surprising amount weight because it's so sturdy. Reviewers are shocked at just how many pieces it can hold with no problem.

    9. Lighted curtains you can string up over windows or the entire ceiling, because nothing beats sleeping under the stars, especially from the comfort of your own bed.

    Some reviewers note that they're way easier to hang up if you leave the strings tied, then untie them once you have the lights mounted where you want them. Also try layering them with some sheer curtains.

    Promising review: "It's been a couple of years since I've had these but THEY ARE GREAT. I bought the curtain and lights separately and used it to create an accent wall in my teeny tiny NYC apartment. I got tons of compliments on them and it was SO easy to set up. I just used thumbtacks to place it into the wall (probably not the best idea but hey, it worked)." —katrinaforreal

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in nine sizes and 14 styles).

    10. A super cute and very practical cloud-shaped magnetic key holder that you can keep near your front door so you never forget where your keys are. Folks also use these in their bathroom to collect and store bobby pins.

    Promising review: "This is the cutest way to hold keys ever! And it was mad easy to install: peel and stick. I don’t know how I ever survived just using a hook instead of this cute magnet cloud. Excellent housewarming gift too. I now take it with wine as a gift for any friends/family moving." —Clemmie C.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    11. A Dali clock to show off your love for surrealist art. Plop this cool clock on any flat surface and wow your family and friends when they come over.

    12. A glass mushroom table lamp that'll add a warm glow to any room. It's petite, so this little bb can squeeze onto bookshelves, nightstands, you name it. It also comes with an LED bulb — one less thing for you to worry about.

    13. A basketball candle so you can show off your love for the game while also creating some ambience. It comes in a bunch of colors, too!

    14. An eco-friendly, machine-washable rug with bohemian vibes that you don't have to worry about messing up because you can just...wash it! Washable carpets are a dream, especially if you have pets or little ones.

    15. A set of extra soft cooling bed sheets to give your bed a major upgrade without breaking the bank. Nights spent under the covers will be so much nicer now thanks to this beloved bedding set. (It has over 243,000 5-star reviews on Amazon.)

    Sets come with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases (with only one pillowcase included in the Twin size). 

    Promising review: "These are the real deal!! I found them from a TikTok and my husband actually said after the first night, 'Let’s just replace all of our sheets with these, they’re so comfortable!' It’s a beautiful blue and white pattern. They wash well and breathe at night — I am always hot but these stayed cool. Definitely buying more!" —Julia Monroe

    Get it from Amazon for $34.97+ (available in sizes Twin—California King and 42 colors). 

    16. And a set of satin pillowcases that not only look great but are wonderful at preventing hair breakage. The ultra-silky material is nonabrasive, so it'll be soft against sensitive skin, too.

    17. A multi-globe floor lamp with mid-century modern vibes for adding some grooviness to your home. Folks remark that it's really bright, which is great if you're the type of person who refuses to turn on the ceiling light. (Trust me, I get it.)

    18. Some floating shelves to install in your bathroom for extra storage. Most bathrooms just have a few towel rods, so installing these will give you plenty of opportunities to show off your gorgeous candles, ceramics, and hand towels. Or just extra toilet paper — you do you!

    19. A bundle of 20 faux Calla Lily stems that look exactly like that real thing. Real bouquets are lovely, but sometimes you want something that will last a little longer.

    20. A small, nonticking alarm clock to wake you up without flashing lights. This small but mighty little guy is also battery powered and has a built-in night-light should you need it.

    21. A quilted chenille floor pillow for creating impromptu seating for yourself and visitors. From nurseries to media rooms, these provide comfortable, versatile seating without sacrificing style. Plus, they stack when not in use.

    22. A printable Wi-Fi sign so you don't have to try to remember your router name and password every time a new person comes over. You download the file, so if you ever need to change your network's name or password you just edit the original copy and print a new sign.

    A sign that reads "welcome the wifi password is inmyhouse974" is shown

    23. A floral wall mural that'll add a big visual impact without costing a small fortune. Very similar wallpapers are more than triple the price, and if you were to hire a muralist to do something like this it could cost thousands of dollars. Make it easy on yourself (and your wallet) by installing this one that comes in four easy-to-install panels.

    24. A moon phase garland if you love astrology and want to incorporate it into your home's art. This is a great option if you have lots of wall space and want to add a bit of texture and shape.

    25. disco ball planter hung with macrame rope or displayed on a stand — it comes with both so you can play around to see what you like best. Now every night is club night, even if you're in your favorite pair of pajamas.

    Lunar Sol is a woman-owned small business in Saint Paul, Minnesota, selling unique home decor. 

    Promising review: "This planter brings me so much joy every day! It is well crafted and beautifully packaged. I appreciate the extra touches, like the fact it comes with a few extra mirrored tiles and that there are different ways to display it — it comes with a stand and nicely braided hanging rope. Every day my whole living room becomes a party :) Cannot recommend enough." —Phil

    Get it from Lunar Sol on Amazon for $29.97.

    26. An octopus and diver nightlight that doubles as the coolest decor ever. It's definitely a conversation starter!
