A metal wall mirror This piece has an embroidery hoop-turned-mirror vibe that's ~sew~ cool you're gonna want it hanging around your place forever! Promising review: "I purchased two of these mirrors for a recent master bathroom remodel. They are perfect! The color of the metal is really pretty, and they have the right amount of a rustic look. 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 Get it from Amazon for $73.16+ (available in two sizes and six colors). A gray and black crocodile peel-and-stick wallpaper Yes, you can put this up on a wall, but you could also use it cover an old piece of furniture to give it some texture and depth. This is no croc — this material is made for sprucing up your rental's plain white walls. 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. 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 Get it from Amazon for $49.99. A botanical shower curtain Turn your blah bathroom into a tropical paradise every time your shower gets the humidity going with this fun curtain. Promising review: "I bought this for my apartment, and it really makes my bathroom pop. I enjoy the vibrant colors and the quality of the curtain itself." — Urban Outfitters Customer Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39. A tree bookshelf This eye-catching take on traditional shelves will really spruce up your reading nook. Promising review: "I love this bookshelf! It’s a work of art! I have not yet fastened it to the wall as I hate to put more holes in the wall but may have to once I fill it up with more books. This is the cutest." — Amazon Customer Get it from Amazon for $63.99+ (available in three colors).

I highly recommend them!" —Lacey Get it from Wayfair for $53.99. A peel-and-stick wallpaper This wallpaper is such an easy way to brighten up your home with a 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 $25.30+ (available in three colors). A vertical shoe tower Put this in your entryway, and it will look organized and elevated. Not to mention, you won't trip over a pile of shoes every time you come home. Promising review: "My hubby looked all over for a tall and narrow shoe stand. This one was perfect. He tucked it in between a dresser and a wall and it fit perfectly. This is very sturdy, well balanced, and looks nice. I would definitely buy it again if I needed one." — KH Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in two colors and sizes). A geometric print This print is perfect for bold souls who aren't afraid of eccentric, clashing patterns. BTW — Memphis Pat is a small business owned by, you guessed it, Pat!

A pair of metal planters You'll get so many compliments on these you'll love having them a round your place. Promising review: "These are the perfect addition to your mid-century modern, boho, farmhouse, or whatever style you're rocking indoor jungle!

I highly recommend these!!!!" — Amazon Customer Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available as a single or pair). A pair of outlet lights Designed with a light on the bottom, these will ensure you can see even in the middle of the night, without bulky night lights taking up any 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.

A faux cowhide rug This rug is so darn good lookin', all your friends are gonna wanna mooove into your place. Promising review: "This rug is top-notch.

I LOOOVE this rug!!! I would buy it again and again!!!" — Amazon Customer Get it from Amazon for $84.99. A reading nook bookcase Save some floor space and give your kiddo's room a totally personalized touch at the same time when you put this in their room. Promising review: "This took about an hour and 15 minutes to assemble, which is great considering I’m really not a handy person. The lower cubicles are quite short, which did impose a limit on which books we could put in, but the upper two are taller so it all worked out. It's quite sturdy and my kids are really excited to sit on it and read!" — CBIsrael Get it from Amazon for $135.59+ (available in six colors). A pair of ceramic vases These eye-catching vases are sure to look good botanic- all over your apartment. Promising review: "We love these.

I was surprised by that but it doesn't affect how much I love these vases." — Andy Washington Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two styles). A tobacco and patchouli candle Made in an amber apothecary jar, this candle is waaay too pretty to be this price — snag this steal of a deal and give your bookshelves something to brag about. 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 $19.07+ (available in eight scents).

An iridescent headboard This beautiful headboard will look positively dreamy in your bedroom. But if you don't want it over your bed, it can also be used as a full-length or vanity mirror.

A psychedelic removable wallpaper This will make a statement no matter where you stick it. Plus, since it's peel-and-stick, you can remove it, reposition it, and even wash 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 $29.99. A mint stool This will give your kid a ~lift~ while also raising your decor up a couple of notches because it won't clash with the rest of your home.

It's a little heavy for her to pick up but she can push it around just fine." — Liz Get it from Amazon for $26.95. A velvet daybed cushion Make your apartment look complete with this cushion, even if you refuse to carry actual furniture into your fifth-floor walkup.

With this, you'll get a beautiful art frame that also just so happens to turn into a luxury television when you need it. 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 $597.99+ (available in six sizes and six frame styles). A surprisingly affordable canopy bed frame This will instantly enhance your bedroom beyond recognition. Wait. Did your room just turn into a high-end Airbnb? Maybe.
