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!

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

Animal print not your passion? You can also grab a solid black version if that’s your taste.

Promising review: “This wallpaper has all the looks of expensive, sexy wallpaper without the high price. I used it to cover a simple dresser which I also purchased through Amazon (pictured above, left). The wallpaper is strong and has a great texture to it. I would recommend this wallpaper to anyone. This is not a true deep black if you’re looking for that. It definitely have a lot of gray tones in it.” —Jake Strickland

A peel-and-stick wallpaper to 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 $29.74+ (available in three colors).


A vertical shoe tower sure to have your entryway looking organized and elevated.

A pair of outlet lights to have your rooms shining 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 $17.96.


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

I would buy it again and again!!!” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “I love love love this!!! Oh my gosh. This is the best wood storage ever.

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

It’s quite sturdy and my kids are really excited to sit on it and read!” —CBIsrael

A tobacco and patchouli candle in an amber apothecary jar that’s waaay too pretty to be this price — snag this steal of a deal and give your bookshelves something to brag about.


The tobacco and patchouli version of this candle is the staple scent in my home! I bought it for the jar, and because I don’t like very sweet, flowery scents. Dang! Did this thing deliver! It has a great burn time, the smell is exactly what I wanted, and I’ve even gotten compliments on the jar when it was in the background of Instagram posts. This is 100% worth gifting, but I’d end up just keeping it for myself.

Promising review: “Goldilocks would love this candle because everything is just right. Some candle scents are too strong or fake smelling and some are too weak – this candle is perfect. The subtle, yet alluring scent provides nice background fragrance for any room and burns very clean. I’m sensitive to candles with fake chemical smells or wax that burns dirty and these candles are my go-to because they never cause a problem. The glass jar gives a nice glow and the candle has a long life. A little more money than most on here but worth it for ‘just right.'” —Sterling

Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in six scents).

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 $142.79+ (available in eight colors and numerous sizes/shapes).


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 $29.74.

A splurge-worthy Samsung Frame – it’s gonna delight anyone who doesn’t want quality wall space taken over by a big blank screen. With this, you just happen to get a luxury television while you’re at it.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed,

This is honest and truly the best splurge I have ever made. It has massively upgraded the look in my living room. My husband loves the photography options and I love all the classical paintings – as someone who loves changing up my decor, being able to update the display images has been so fun. The quality is fantastic while watching movies and TV…but I’m pretty sure I love it as a piece of art in my home even more.

Promising review: “This is a brilliant TV! It looks great in art mode. If your primary goal is to have the TV look less like a TV, I think you’ll be pleased with this one. There are some reviews that point out some downsides (like a small amount of local storage), but I’ve had no problems. The pictures make the screen look brighter than it is but with the right pictures, it looks matte and brilliant in art mode; like a framed print.” —N B

Get it from Amazon for $547.99+ (available in four colors and six sizes).


A surprisingly affordable canopy bed frame that’ll enhance your bedroom beyond recognition. Wait. Did your room just turn into a high-end Airbnb? Maybe.

A wall-mounted cat bed for folks would start ~feline~ all bubbly inside if they got a cat bed their cat actually used.


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 $137.71 (available in two colors).
