A waterproof, stain-resistant faux marble granite adhesive you can use on an old desk to magic it into a sleeker, brand-new version that’ll make you proud to take flatlays on.


Promising review:I took a chance and bought this originally as a ‘Band-Aid fix’ to re-finish a desk. I had looked in stores in the contact paper aisles, but all of them were just that … paper. THIS item is actually a thin sheet of vinyl (?) with adhesive, and I ended up liking it so much I bought more and re-finished my kitchen countertop with it as well! Highly recommended if you want to change the look of your counters but you don’t have the money for a full remodel just yet. It can be cleaned with dish soap and water just like a real countertop.” —Ezra Boyd

An eye-catching moon phase garland that’ll catch the sunlight streaming in through your window and make the room look like ~magic~.


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 grey/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

A rainbow prism suncatcher you can easily hang indoors or out to refract sunlight and make a bunch of teensy little rainbows all over the place, like your bedroom is your own little magical realm.

Promising review: “They actually were bigger than I anticipated which was actually pretty awesome. I hung them in the window of my office and its beautiful when they catch light. Definitely worth the money when it puts a smile on your face.” —Emmy Ann

A sleek minimalist-inspired candle you’ll have to buy on repeat after you start using them up faster than you can sneak them into your moody Instagrams.

Plus a rose gold rechargeable electric lighter with a decor-friendly design. This one is not only cute as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so you can light candles in your bedroom without worrying about open flames or scorching your fingertips.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I’m a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I’ve always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it.

Promising review: “Wow. This thing is amazing. Small and so easy to use. My husband kept saying it won’t actually light anything and was blown away when it did. We lit candles and paper to use as tinder with absolutely no effort. No fuel needed. Just a quick recharging. And no waste in throwing away those huge and never-easy-to-use butane sticks. Love love it. Easy buying process so I would recommend everyone buy one.” —Diane Bold

Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five colors).


A leaf-shaped trinket dish you can leave on your bedside table to collect all your glittery odds and ends before you go to sleep, like a well-accessorized wood nymph.


Promising review: “Very cute! I bought it for a friend for her birthday and she loved it. It’s very aesthetically pleasing and nice to the touch, but definitely will break if you drop it, so keep it in a safe area. It’s the perfect size to display your special jewelry. It’s very nicely made, and is perfect for someone that loves that natural aesthetic.” —Lisa

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.


A set of off-white sheer curtains to add a bit of sophisticated flair to your windows, but still let the sunlight stream in. Honestly, these are so pretty that Maria von Trapp would 11/10 pull them down and make a bunch of fancy matching outfits out of them.


Promising review: “These curtains were everything I didn’t know I needed! I used two panels in my living room on my french patio doors and they provide a little privacy, but allow so much sunshine in the room. So beautiful and make the space look really elegant! I loved them so much that I bought a second set for my dining room windows too 🙂 For the price point….SO WORTH IT! Elegant and airy!” —Celest M.

Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three sizes).


A lush double-sided shaggy faux-fur duvet set to really make a statement — the statement being, of course, “I am never leaving my bedroom again, and as this duvet has emotionally replaced all the humans in my heart.”


One side is faux-fur and the other side is plush velvet; the Twin set comes with one pom pom fringed pillow sham, and other size sets include two.

Promising review: “If my house caught on fire, this is the first thing I’d grab. But seriously, this is one of my favorite things in my whole house. I feel like it tied my entire room together. I get so many compliments on it and it seriously so cozy and well made. My only complaint would be how hard thing thing makes it to get out of bed in the mornings. It’s incredibly soft and isn’t the type of ‘fur’ that will mat and get gross looking over time. I rely heavily on reviews when I buy things so I’m here to tell you — if you’re on the fence about buying this … do it!! Also, the pillowcases are amazing also. Super soft and the pompom fringe is adorable.” —SK

Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in sizes Twin – King and three colors).


And a pretty pastel mug warmer that’ll keep your tea and coffee warm on the bedside table for you while you’re taking your sweeeeeet sweet time to emerge from your covers on the weekend.


I got one of these for my mom for Christmas (her entire kitchen is pink, it is a Big Mood) and can confirm it is QUITE beautiful in person.

Promising review: “I researched so many coffee warmers and am so glad I decided on this one. It definitely keeps my coffee hot, no matter how long it takes me to drink it. I also like that it has three settings. As you drink down your coffee, you can lower the heat because it keeps the coffee very hot. I like it so much I ordered a second one for another part of the house.” —hottytoddy

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six colors).


A gorgeous hanging wall calendar full of original prints celebrating Black history that you can separate from the calendar and reuse as prints all over your room once each month has passed.


This calendar features art from Jena Holliday of Spoonful of Faith, and was created in collaboration with Target to celebrate Black History Month, with dates on the calendar including historical moments honoring Black history.

Promising review: “This calendar is so beautiful and inspiring. I like the artwork and message, also the birthdays listed for each month is a nice touch as well. Forgot to mention the quality is amazing as well, not flimsy at all.” —G

Get it from Target for $9.99.


A bunch of teensy macaron boxes
for a delightful upgrade to every corner of your bedroom, whether it’s storing pills or trinkets or just staring at them looking all fancy and French on your bedside table.


Promising review: “Just received these cute little boxes and am in love with them. Very thick and sturdy plastic but easy enough to open. These will work perfectly for filling solid perfumes and giving out as stocking stuffer gifts as I don’t have to worry about it being a snug fit/lid falling off. I imagine these would also be great for pretend food for kids’ play-sets or for a kid’s trinket box. Overall I love them, love their feel, love the colors and am very happy.” —Mary

Get a set of six from Amazon for $6.99.


A bamboo charging station for your bedside table to organize all your devices and let you wake up to a clean, fully-charged slate of them every morning (when hopefully you’re fully charged, too).


For a setup that will fit neatly under the stand, try this USB Charger on Amazon for $25.99, and these short USB cables on Amazon for $8.99.

Promising review: “Love the look of this organizer. It provides the right amount of room for all your storage needs. We use it for an iPad, iPhone, AirPods and Apple watch as well as an apple pencil and sometimes even my MacBook. They don’t fall over at all. They all fit nicely on the stand. The stand itself looks nice and is nice quality it hides the cords so you don’t have five different cords hanging out it’s also really cute. Definitely a great addition if you have a lot of things that need charged.” —Lakin

A set of clear hanging vases that will make your space look truly unique, and also allow you to casually reenact scenes from Beauty & The Beast in the comfort of your own home.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These are beautiful and simple. The hangers work perfectly in the drywall of my apartment that basically nothing works (it just crumbles with everything else I’ve tried). You get a hook with four tiny nails that essentially leave no trace but pinpricks in your wall. These look beautiful! And I will be buying more. They’re so simple and modern. They fit an entire bouquet in each vase or you can do less. Love it!” —Hillary

A luxe velvet swivel desk chair to add a touch of vintage sophistication to an otherwise modern setup at your bedroom desk. (Also, desk chairs that spin > all desk chairs ever.)

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I got this chair in green and it looks much better in person than it does online! The velvet is super soft and the chair itself seems pretty comfortable. It’s a desk chair so I didn’t want the cushion to be too soft. I love that it has such a great range of height because I usually want to sit in different ways depending on what I’m doing at my desk. It was incredibly easy to assemble, and it arrived much more quickly than Amazon originally estimated!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $135.99+ (available in four colors).


A set of decorative succulents so you can have all the pride of being a plant parent without the burden of actually, y’know, keeping them alive.

A set of corduroy pillow covers that’ll accent your bed or cozy up your favorite reading chair (which, thanks to these, just became your favorite napping chair).


Promising review: “These pillow covers exceeded my expectations. I needed to cover up some older and worn decorative pillows, so I chose solid corduroy to accent my home colors. The cool thing about these covers is that, along with fitting well, the fabric is super soft! Most decorative pillow covers tend to be scratchy; we ACTUALLY use our pillows for naps, so this is great! The coverings easily slipped over my pillows, and the zipper closing worked with ease. The color was just as shown (blue). I will definitely order these again.” —zbergteacher

Get a set of two covers from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 27 colors and 7 sizes).

If you’re looking for affordable pillow inserts to match the covers, you can buy a set of two 18×18 hypoallergenic pillow inserts on Amazon for $14.99.


A sweet little round accent rug for your desk area or the foot of your bed that will add a subtle pop of color to the room when you need it most (read: every day of the week).


Promising review: “The rug is absolutely beautiful. It’s very soft. I was worried it would be more white, but it’s actually a nice grayish cream background and all the colors have a speckle of other colors in them that will make it go with almost anything you put it with. I have never ordered any rug that I’ve been so pleased with you won’t be disappointed.” —Sheree R.

Get it from RugsUSA for $26.70+ (originally $51.99+; available in five round sizes and a variety of other shapes and sizes).


A multilevel jewelry stand that is elegant and understated enough to complement a select few of your baubles, but also sturdy enough to hold the whole collection if you hoard jewelry like it’s your job.


Promising review: “I wanted to get rid of an old jewelery box I had and get something more sophisticated and grown-up. I had a hard time finding something that would be big enough for all my pieces, fit on my dresser, and look good. This does all these!!! My long necklaces fit on the tallest, back hanger and all my bracelets fit on the other two. The few rings and earrings I own display well on the bottom tray. It’s a beautiful piece and I’m so happy I bought this!!” —Embo13

Get it from Amazon for $20 (also available in gold).

Or an eye-popping neon word sign you can install on your wall that comes in a *bunch* of cute messages and designs, whether your room is an oasis or, as I like to call my own pink bedroom, a Hello Kitty dungeon.


Promising review: “So this sign is great. It came completely packed with the little foam pieces shown in the video to ensure it arrives intact. No setup was required, just plug in and turn on. There is a handy on/off switch so it may be left plugged in. The light is super bright and beautiful and exceeded my expectations. Can’t wait to get it hung on the wall!” —Dakota Watson

Get it from Amazon: the Breathe sign for $49.99 and the Girls sign for $59.99.

A set of fairy lights that will add so much whimsy to your windows or the back of your bed that the universe will basically demand you Instagram Story them at least thrice a day.


It comes with eight different light modes, including a *twinkle* mode, with a controller attached to the lights so you can easily switch between them.

Promising review: “Love the ease of these lights! I bought two sets for two different bedrooms for my daughters and they ABSOLUTELY love them! They are easy to hang up over the curtains. I love that I don’t have to worry about trying to string together several strands of Christmas lights that are way too long and super heavy over the curtain rod. The LED lights are very lightweight so they don’t put any extra weight on my curtain rods. Also, we love the different light modes that it can do. My girls love the warm glow that it gives to their bedrooms. The first thing my almost teenage daughter said was, ‘My room looks like a Pinterest room!’ So overall, it was a WIN-WIN! Definitely worth the money!” —stayathomemom

Get them from Amazon for $17.99.


A set of satin pillowcases – not only will it look lovely on your bed, but it might actually help your ‘do. Fabrics like satin create less friction for your hair, which may spare you those first ten minutes you spend every morning trying to find your face out from under the tangles. Win-win-WIN.


Promising review: “Couldn’t afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I’ve heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that’s how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I’m not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I’m hooked and will be buying more colors.” —BinaryCode

A mini retro speaker that can wirelessly connect to your devices, so you can prop it on your nightstand and take calls or play music from it while you lounge in bed. Plus, it can operate on a rechargeable battery, so you can even take it from room to room and keep your playlists movin’ and groovin’.


Promising review: “I’ve always loved vintage looking items or authentic antiques, so I just instantly loved the way it looked. This went on a best deal so saving some I went for it. I’M SO GLAD I PURCHASED THIS! In my opinion, even full price this speaker would’ve been worth it. The craftsmanship is flawless and it’s well-made. I love he vintage look and love its out-looking texture. It’s very beautiful. It looks retro, but it’s also solidly constructed. The sound and build quality is quite remarkable and exceeded my expectations for this price!!! It’s constantly topic of discussion when friends and family come for a visit.” —Megan

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18.


A wall decal that will make your bedroom look like it fell out of the pages of a storybook — all of the perks of Rapunzel’s castle, sans the eighteen years of knotted hair and casual imprisonment.


Promising review: “I LOVE how beautiful these are, like hand-painted beads on my little one’s closet doors. They look great on a soft sage green background. There’s a tiny bit of texture in the paint which you can see through the decal at the right angle, but most often guests assume I painted them myself! The smoother the surface the better, but I would definitely buy these again.” —Alexis

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.


A pom-pom throw bright enough to add a pop of color to your favorite corner of the room and soft enough to inspire some accidentally-on-purpose weekend naps.

So pretty and comfortable. I’m obsessed. 🥰 I will definitely be purchasing as a gift for family and friends in the future.” —Kassandra Emerson

Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in eight colors and two sizes).


A sleek set of floating shelves to add some dimension to the room and give all the knick knacks you had squished on your dresser some breathing room (let your Funko Pops LIVE!!).


Promising review:These I have to say are super cute and trendy. I have wanted shelves like this for so long but nothing stood out, then I came across these. They are exactly what I was looking for with colors! They are made very well, for the price. Comes with all the hardware to install and easy as you have to screw on the brackets yourself. I love that you have a few different choice on how to put the bracket.” —Janna

A tiered plant stand so you can add a relaxing focal point to your bedroom (not to mention a Proud Plant Parent flex).

An oil diffuser that doubles as a humidifier, and will basically trick your brain into thinking you’ve turned your bedroom into an exclusive spa. Plus, it’s equipped with seven different LED colors and a remote, so you can boss it around from all over your room.


Promising review: “It took me less then five minutes to get it unpacked and set up and running. I owned a similar unit before. It did not take long for the smell of essential oils to fill the air. So Wonderful! It is a bonus that this one has a remote to turn it off and on, change output levels, turn the light on or off, and to set a time of when to turn the machine off. Fantastic! If I get three years out of this machine I will be thrilled. I am very satisfied with my purchase.” —Lorraine J.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.


A cute lil’ trash can sure to blend right into the decor. It also comes equipped with an inside bucket with a hidden handle, so you can get rid of all the wrappers from the snack-size Goldfish bags you ate in bed with ease.


Promising review: “Exactly the shade of pink that it appears online and is sooo cute. This little trash can matches the decor in my room. Perfect tiny size for a small space.” —Pieisforme

Get it from Amazon for $28.92.


A crystal carafe that will give your bedside table so much elegance that you’ll feel like you fell into an episode of Downton Abbey every time you wake up in the middle of the night and need to quench your thirst.


Promising review: “I bought one and love it so much, got another one. It’s meticulously made, gorgeously crafted solid crystal, and has serious heft. It’s not huge and unwieldy, but has enough capacity for not only nighttime carafe use, but also for daytime, e.g. I make iced tea and use it at my home office. I love the convenience of the glass/cover, which I use not as a drinking glass but for for dust particles not to get into my water and drinks. For the price, this cannot be beat. The quality of this is remarkable and if you’re on the fence about this, get it — you won’t be sorry :-)” —Diva

Get it from Amazon for $21.99.


A laundry hamper so understated that it can basically hide all your gross gym clothes in plain sight. If your laundering needs are covered, you can also use it as a storage option for clean sheets and pillows.


Promising review:This basket has been wonderful so far. I had a few blankets taking up space in my closet and so I purchased this in hopes of making some space for other things. It’s definitely doing its job. It’s currently holding two queen-sized fleece blankets, a queen-sized weighted blanket, and two pillows. Super spacious! It did come folded up but if you follow the instructions that come with the basket, it will easily get some shape and hold onto it without it flopping over.” —CCLP

Get it from Amazon for $23.99.


A snuggly pet bed for cats and small dogs that not only is built with high walls to give your furry friend more comfort and a feeling of security, but also comes in so many pretty colors that it’ll be impossible not to find the perfect one to match your space.


It’s also water- and dirt-resistant, and can be vacuum-cleaned or thrown in the wash to clean!

Promising review: “I’ve had this cat bed for two years now. I have three others as well, but this is a favorite. It is big enough to fit my 18 lb cat very comfortably, and high enough on the sides that he can prop his head on it like a pillow when he wants to. He is tall and long, not fat. One side of the bed is higher than the other, so it gives the cat options as to how to orient himself. It is a soft faux-lambs wool plush material on the inside and out except the bottom of the outside, which is polyester satin. I’ve washed it many times and only air-dried it, and it still looks nearly like new. I have had others whose stuffing bunched to one side when washed and became unusable. This one maintains its shape. Very nice cat bed.” —J.C.

Get it from Amazon for $27.96 (available in 14 colors and Jumbo size).


A woven seagrass basket you can put a lil’ potted plant in and stage anywhere in your room (this is my emotional support succulent, ma’am).

Promising review: “I am really happy with this basket! It’s exactly what I was looking for! I absolutely love the way my fiddle-leaf fig looks and fit in it! My pot is a 10 inches so I ordered the large basket. It was a little snug going in but it fits perfectly! The basket seems to be well made and sturdy. I definitely recommend it and will most likely order more!” —Jennifer D.

Promising review: “These drawer liners are EXACTLY what I was looking and hoping for. They are heavy high quality and the scent is wonderful. It is fresh and substantial but not overpowering! I am so happy with them and I will definitely order them again. They would definitely make a great gift too. The box is very nice and high quality too!” —Mary T
