$19.92; buy now at walmart.com
If you’re looking for a stylish way to illuminate your space—especially a reading nook or eating area—consider this wildly affordable and chic hanging light, which features a stylish and minimalistic bronze metal shade.

Mainstays Mongolian Faux Fur Figural Rug
$19.87; buy now at walmart.com
Made of Mongolian faux fur that’s both durable and easily maintainable, this fun, blush-colored rug—designed by Mainstays (that’s Walmart’s contemporary furniture and home accents brand)—is the ideal addition to a home in need of some livening up. At 30-by-46 inches, it’s large enough to be unmissable, but not so large it’ll overwhelm the rest of the decor in whatever room you place it in.
Better Homes and Gardens Triangle Geo Decorative Throw Pillow
$15.87; buy now at walmart.com
Yes, Walmart is a great place to hunt for decorative throw pillows. This geometric pick from Better Homes and Gardens is the perfect example of the tasteful selection you’ll find. It’s more than just a unique pattern that sets this pillow aside, though; look close, and you’ll spot a thickly woven texture (complements of a jacquard handloom weaving technique) that’s as plush as it is pretty. Say hello to your afternoon nap’s new best friend.
Geometric Tabletop Sculpture
$9.87; buy now at walmart.com
This structure is small, sure (just 5-by-6 inches), but, since it’s constructed entirely from hand-painted iron, it’s sure to stand the test of time. It’s also a quick and easy way to make any neglected surface in your home—whether it’s a long-forgotten side table or a dust-collecting shelf—exponentially more interesting.
Mainstays Long Hair Faux Fur Pouf
$25; buy now at walmart.com
Clocking in at a mere two pounds, this faux fur pouf is a comfortable addition fit for any social space in your home; it’s a perfect additional seat for when you play host on movie night. Available in three cool, muted colors (mint, teal, and millennial pink, as pictured), it’s also a great option for those looking to bring their home swinging into the 21st century with style.

If you truly wish to amp up your home’s design potential, steering clear of the paint-by-numbers glass vase is a great baby step. In fact, even The New York Times is behind this theory, declaring that “the vase can be just as important as the blossoms”—and we couldn’t agree more. So make the most of your fresh floral bouquet by pairing it with this sleek ombre glass jar by the home decor brand, Hosley. There’s lots to love about it (elegant shape, trendy ombre), but the best part is something only you’ll notice: The price tag.

One of the oldest design tricks in the book: If you want a room to look both bigger and more stylish, invest in a really great mirror.

This gorgeous baroque number, which is available in both gold and silver, will instantly add an extra level of sophistication to any room—without breaking the bank.

Here, they’re shown in a red-and-off-white color scheme, but they’re also available in shades from teal to taupe to, yes, black.
