1. A set of geometric wire sculptures you can mount on the wall, hang from the ceiling, or use to decorate a surface that needs a little extra ~je ne sais quoi~.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE these. I have been drooling over geometric pendant lights, but couldn’t afford them at $60 each. So I found this set and wondered if I could rig something with lights. I was delighted to find that they snap together and could hang them in multiple ways!! I was able to snap them around the wire of a plain pendant light, and it turned out even better than I expected. Highly recommended. I would buy again and tell anyone about my new obsession.” —Chelsea

2. A popular artificial eucalyptus wall hanging for anyone who has given up on trying to keep real plants alive but still wants to add some green vibes to their space.

amazon.com

Promising review: “This is beautiful! Got it for decor in our house and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it. Came assembled. Looks real! Would definitely recommend.” —Yarbers

Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (also available in pink). 

3. An upright spiral fruit basket that’s half storage/half contemporary art piece! Plus, it’ll help you conserve precious counter space by giving you some extra vertical storage.

Promising review: “My family and I like this better than a fruit bowl. Aside from the interesting display factor, it’s also easier to see how much fruit you have left than having to peer into and/or root around in the fruit bowl.” —The CB Hammer

Get it from Amazon for $23.34.

4. An oversized paper lantern that comes in a variety of vibrant colors and will turn whatever room you put it in into your favorite place in your house.

amazon.com

This paper lantern is 24-inches! I own it in yellow and can’t imagine my bedroom without it. I used a clear Command hook and some fishing wire to hang it from the ceiling and love looking up at it while relaxing in bed. You can easily add a light to the wire frame without modification if you want, but I found that it looks great even without. I have a few other paper lanterns I really like, but none command attention like this giant one!!

Get it from Amazon for $13.63.

5. A velvet accent chair with a petal-back design, gold metal legs, and a padded seat that’ll make you feel like you’re sitting in a comfy lil’ flower!

amazon.com

Promising review: “Comfy, clean, and unique! Absolutely love this chair, it looks great and is cozy to sit in. The material is extraordinarily soft and the seat is plush. It’s a great size to use at a vanity or desk and super easy to set up. Only took one person to assemble (just attach the legs) and the finished product is definitely worth the money. It’s sturdy and has a gorgeous, unique design as well. Also love the variety of colors!” —Lori L.F.

Get it from Amazon for $185.99+ (available in 12 colors and two fabrics).

6. A hidden bookshelf to turn your prized book collection into a bookworm’s dream display so you can admire them daily.

amazon.com, Amazon

It works by holding the cover of the bottom book!

Promising review: “These are my favorite decorating item ever. Purchased four years ago in medical school. And have held up over many moves.” —Susan Giampalmo

Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in four sizes and two colors).

7. A polished bamboo wall hook mount that ~wood~ look way more exciting than the plain ol’ coatrack you’ve been using for jackets, scarves, hats, and bags.

amazon.com

Promising review: “This system of wall hooks was easy to assemble and hang and it looks very good on the wall. I needed something that I could hang aprons and pot holders on, and this fills the bill very well.” —Janet Lund

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two colors).

8. A very cute magnetic key holder that’ll make you smile every time you use it. Plus, it’ll help keep your keys from cluttering up your other surfaces.

amazon.com

Promising review: “This is one of the most useful purchases I’ve ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I’ve had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn’t lost any magnetism and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I’m in love. One of the best purchases I’ve made.” —Makenah

Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

9. A prismatic window film — it’s easy to stick on any glass surface for an extra layer of privacy *and* some gorgeous rainbow reflections that’ll make your space feel a little more magical.

szero4 / Via amazon.com, Rachael G. / Via amazon.com

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

Promising review: “This window film is just STUNNING! I used it for the bottom half of my windows on my main floor for added privacy, so I don’t always have to keep my curtains closed! I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon.” —Stacy M. Ambrose

Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in eight sizes).

10. A set of tall jars with spherical cork tops that’ll transform food storage into aesthetically pleasing decor.

Promising review: “This looks really nice in person. The size is perfect for sugar, salt, coffee, and pastas. I love it, it makes my kitchen look more professional haha. The ball cover design is cute, too. The glass feels strong enough not to break but also not too heavy to hold with one hand. Over all great product. I would buy it again.” —Song

Get the set of four from Amazon for $32.99

11. A house-shaped tissue box cover that doubles as a charming piece of decor.

Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “I, an adult woman, cannot remember the last time I bought a box of tissues for my home (though I have several purse packs?!). It may have been when I most recently had a sinus infection, which I guess was two-plus years ago. But now that I’m playing house as a grown-ass person in an apartment to myself, I’m trying to be *responsible*. So obviously buying this whimsical tissue box cover we’ve featured in a million BuzzFeed shopping posts is peak adulting.

“Perhaps the reason I’ve been so bad at keeping around a box of tissues is because tissues just look…kind of ugly out in the open. But not with this lil’ cover! Now it’s a ~design element~ that I’ll hopefully remember to keep full. For now, it’s filled with a square box of tissues I unearthed from my old apartment’s closet while packing; it’s presently neatly housed inside the tissue box cover, providing the ‘smoke’ for the tiny chimney. The only downside to committing to this box is that I’ll have to buy square-shaped tissue boxes only now. But I can live with that. And with my not-snotty nose.” —Elizabeth Lilly, BuzzFeed Staff

Get it from Amazon for $5+ (available in five colors).

12. A ready-to-hang print that’ll make walking into your home feel like stepping into a cool gallery opening. Now could anyone point me in the direction of the open bar?

The Novogratz

Each print is printed on matte paper and framed behind a plexiglass cover. Plus the frame has the hardware preinstalled on the back, so you just need to hang it on the wall.

Get it from Novogratz for $79+ (available in six sizes and five frame colors)

13. A trending set of pumpkins fashioned from books so you can show off your love for literature *and* Halloween this fall.

Root To Vine / Etsy

Root To Vine is a Fort Wayne, Indiana–based small business from husband-and-wife duo Sean and Amy Geiser. 

Promising review: “I am in love with these pumpkins! I got so many compliments on them and my decor this year. They were perfect for my Halloween book club dinner.” —jenlindgren72

Get them from Root To Vine on Etsy for $18+ (available in small, medium, and large and either orange or natural). 

14. A pack of two velvet pom-pom throw pillow covers that come in a variety of gorgeous colors and will make even the least exciting couch look like a million bucks.

Amazon

Promising review: “These pillow cases are so soft and cozy! The color is true to the picture, a nice deep red, and the material itself is cozy and velvety. The little pom-poms are actually very much secured to the pillow, and I’ve never experienced any of them coming loose, and I am using them daily. The zippers are very well hidden without being difficult to use, too.” —Al

Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in seven sizes and 22 colors).

15. A botanical shower curtain that’ll make you feel like you’re bathing in your own private garden.

Amazon

Promising review: “This curtain is gorgeous! It is a bit sheer, so use a solid liner if you want full color saturation. The colors in this print are abundant and broad enough to match well in almost any bathroom! Everyone who has seen this in my bathroom has raved over how lovely it is, too. I spent an unreasonable amount of time trying to find a shower curtain that would look nice in my vintage tiled bathroom. I looked at about 2,000 (really!) to find one, and I am so incredibly happy that I looked long enough to find this one! I spent a few extra bucks to get the 84″ length so it would be an even more dramatic focus in the tiny bathroom. Tl;dr: It is a beautiful print and it is a fantastic price. Get it!” —Bethany Blah

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five sizes and 45 colors).

16. A bestselling boba tea light for anyone who loves bubble tea and wants more of a kawaii aesthetic in their space. The boba even moves around inside the light — how cute is that???

Urban Outfitters

This is battery powered so no messy wires to deal with.

Promising review: “Got it for my friend. She and I love bubble tea and she loved this cute little lamp as well. Gives a nice warm glow and is just so adorable. Pretty small but fits on a bookshelf nicely.” —ghostpepprrr

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $22.

17. A vibrant shag rug that’ll make your living room look like it’s straight out of a magazine.

RugsUSA

Promising review: “It looks expensive and really brightens up the room! It does shed, but after vacuuming a couple times it has definitely improved. The rug is very vibrant in person — it makes the room fun. It is thick and pretty heavy. Very happy with our purchase, especially for the price! Would definitely recommend this rug.” —Ashley

Get it from RugsUSA for $96.40+ (available in six sizes).

18. A cotton swab–corralling flower if your favorite kind of storage is the kind disguised as decor.

amazon.com

It’s also great for toothpicks!

Promising review: “I love this little holder. I have two in black and green! You can remove the little florets to make room for more cotton swabs. Do not overload this thing or you will struggle with getting it out. I only fill about 10 at a time. This may not be ideal for people with a large household, but I don’t mind refilling it weekly. I usually put about 10 swabs in. I like that it keeps my cotton swabs sanitary with the domed lid. Looks very cute on the countertop!” —ag.fabozzi

Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in five colors).

19. A conveniently sized tabletop fountain that’ll make any room feel a little more zen. It’s easy to use — just fill it with water, plug it in, and switch it on or off whenever you please! The rocks are adjustable so you can customize how loud the trickling water is, and the subtle lighting creates a lovely soft reflection, making this fountain a treat for both your eyes *and* ears.

amazon.com

Your cat will probably love this too!

Promising review: “Adorable water fountain. We’ve had it on daily for more than two weeks, and it’s still going strong. It’s a very pretty water fountain, and is very relaxing. You can adjust the rocks to where the water makes a lot of noise, or no noise at all. Whichever you prefer. Saw a few reviews only giving a couple stars, because they had to refill the fountain daily. Not sure if they know how science works, but refilling the fountain is supposed to be needed and isn’t a fault in the product, it’s just how science works. LOL. Moving water evaporates quicker, people. There are no cons to this product whatsoever. It’s great in every way.”Cassie

Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

20. Some beautiful agate bookends for a majorly ~rockin’~ book shelf.

amazon.com

Promising review: “These bookends are perfect for my space! I absolutely love the unique look of each one. They are heavy/can support my books without slipping, and they look good, too. One issue I had was that the green dye marked up my white shelf but nothing a Magic Eraser couldn’t fix. Overall I’m extremely satisfied with this product!” —Skye

Get a set of two from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

21. Some chalkboard paint so you can dress up your walls with tonight’s menu, funny messages, cute doodles, and more, knowing you can just wipe it clean and start fresh anytime!

Get one quart from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four colors and three sizes).

22. A stylish, handmade moon phase garland you’ll be over the moon for every time it catches your eye.

Amazon

Promising review: “I’m an incoming freshman this fall and I bought this to add some personality to my dorm. It has beyond exceeded my expectations! I placed it directly on top of my dorm bed as shown in the display photos and am so pleased with how it looks. It fits perfectly with the gray/white color scheme I was going for and have received numerous compliments from both my friends and RAs when they’ve visited. I cannot stress enough how much of an ‘aesthetic feel’ it adds to my dorm.” —jhsgf

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

23. A set of rainbow flatware that might just turn your kitchen into the coolest eatery in town.

Amazon

Promising review: “OMG I’m in love with the color of these!!! They’re so beautiful and shiny!! I thought maybe they would be too much cleaning for me cuz I don’t want to have to polish my silverware every time I wash them! I just don’t have time for that but thankfully that isn’t an issue with these they come out of the dishwasher all bright and pretty looking brand new!!! They seem to be a good quality all the way around!!! I definitely recommend getting these!!! I had a dinner party and my guests all had to know where I got my unicorn silverware!! LOL I think they should be renamed for sure!! Unicorn silverware is a very fitting name for these!!” —Katie Eagle

Urban Outfitters

Promising review: “I love the vivid colors and how forgiving peel-‘n’-stock wallpaper is. Adds personality to an otherwise boring space.” —LLDL

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59.

25. An absolutely stunning tapestry to ensure that you have a beautiful, relaxing view to gaze at no matter where you are.

Amazon

Promising review: “Beautiful. Just as described. The fabric is really light and thin, which made hanging super easy. That said, the image quality is SO good for the price. It seriously looks like textured, thick fabric. Also love the color combo. Very relaxing for my meditation corner.” —Mallory R.

Get it from Amazon for $14.91+ (available in four sizes).

26. Some solar-powered hummingbird wind chimes — they’re beautiful during the day and STUNNING at night. They slowly change colors and can be hung both inside and outside to add a soothing vibe to your space.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I love this product I have it hanging on my porch and it is so beautiful during the day and even more beautiful at night when it lights up.” —magpie

Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

27. Or some solar crystal ball wind chimes that’ll delight you with their changing colors and magical ambience.

Promising review: “I like that the spheres are white and neutral in the daytime, and then come alive with mesmerizing rotating color at night. It is very soothing to sit and watch the colors shift and change, and it doesn’t seem to be a certain pattern, so it’s fun to watch for a long time! I have it in the bedroom in the window, and that seems to get enough light to charge. I have not timed it, but the color power seems to last a long time — I always fall asleep before it is done, anyway, so several hours. Recommended!” —NW Mom

Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

Inceptualize3D/Etsy

This Atlanta-based small business stocks so many super-creative 3D-printed home goods!

Promising review: “Absolutely in love with my floating coffee mug sculpture. I made a display to show it off. Topic of discussion at my house” —Sheila

Get it from Inceptualize3D on Etsy for $30 (available in three colors).

29. A plant stand so you can proudly display your leafy friends, stunning ceramics, favorite books, and other decor pieces with as much style as they deserve.

The Novogratz

Get it from Novogratz for $109 (available in a white or gray finish).

30. A can of Colorshot spray paint that comes in a variety of stunning colors so you can take any boring piece of furniture or decor and give it a whole new personality! Plus, it’s made using sugarcane instead of petroleum so you can feel better about using it.

Home Depot

Try it on metal, wood, plastic, unglazed ceramics, stone, glass, and other surfaces! The paint is UV resistant and it dries in 10 minutes!

Promising review: “I have to say that this is some pretty darn good spray paint. Vibrant colors, easy to apply, and dries very quickly. I find that painting metal objects often results in a less-than-stellar end product due to coverage and adhesion problems, but the Colorspray paint almost completely covered with the first coat. All it required was a light second coat and I was thoroughly pleased with the result. Colorspray is definitely one of the better spray paints that I’ve come across to date and it’s priced competitively.” —Jim

Get a can from Home Depot for $5.98 (available in 48 colors and three finishes).

31. An impressively detailed, dual-color moon-shaped light to add a cozy lunar glow that’ll make your space feel a lil’ more soothing.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I originally bought the 7-inch moon for my husband as a gift of ‘I love you to the moon and back’ for our anniversary… Well, I loved his moon so much that I kept stealing it from our bedroom and taking it to the living room. So I bought myself the 5.9-inch moon to compare sizes and have one to call my own. As it turns out, the slightly smaller 5.9-inch one is just as amazing as the 7-inch. These moons charge up fast with a cord (with a cool ‘blue moon’ color when charging) and then once charged, they are completely free from cords or any connection dependence. They light up with a very detailed real moon surface design in white or yellow, and it will totally mesmerize you. You can literally ‘hold the whole moon in your hand’ and use it as a cordless and battery-free lamp, a night-light, a lantern or quasi-candle in the dark. The wood stand is sleek and super easy to assemble, and is a perfect accent to any room decor. These moons are the best gift for friends, family, coworkers, kids, pets, and spouses. My #1-purchase pick for 2020!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes).

32. An essential-oil diffuser you’ll be ~pining~ for every day until it arrives on your doorstep.

DreamVibeCreations / Etsy

Promising review: “This thing is super cool!! I can’t wait to hang it up over my bed! 10/10 would recommend!” —Rachelle hood

Get it from DreamVibeCreations on Etsy for $50+ (available in two color options).

34. A gorgeous three-drawer accent dresser that’s a stunning work of art all on its own! The mirrored surface and intricate geometric wooden overlays are simply stunning, and you can even get a matching cabinet if you want a companion piece in the same style.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I am in love! It’s got so much character and it’s very well built. It even smells like real wood! The drawers slide easily, but they have some weight. This isn’t a cheap piece of furniture! I love the mirror accents — it really helps to brighten up our north/east-facing bedroom. We have two that function as nightstands, but I use the top drawer for more like a nightstand and the bottom two drawers for clothing. It’s got a good amount of space for a nightstand! It’s one of my favorite pieces in the house. Highly recommend it.” —Sherri G.

Get it from Amazon for $249.99

35. A happy little planter that just wants to sit around and bring positive vibes to your space.

Get it from HomeArtStickers on Etsy for $9.40+ (available in 31 dimensions).

Promising review: “We received our shelves last night and I LOVE THEM! They are exactly as described and the perfect size for the wall in our hallway. They are also sent with nails for you to hang them. I cannot say enough great things about Joey. I was a little leery about hanging them because people posted so many different ways of arranging them, but I reached out to Joey and he showed me the simplest way! He was so kind and responsive.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This wrap completely transformed my desk! I had to order two to cover everything, but nonetheless, my desk looks amazing and everyone who walks into my room notices. It’s not a super-thin vinyl, so if there are tiny imperfections/scratches where you want to place it, it will be covered! I’ve never used a vinyl wrap before so I was a little nervous, but surprisingly, it was super easy to apply and I finished up in less than 10 minutes.” —Shan
