One Kings Lane Jackson Splatter Table Lamp, Ivory Blue

Have you seen a more charming, little lamp? Named aptly after famous painter Jackson Pollack, the paint splatter (Pollack's signature) nicely contrasts against the brass hardware and ceramic body.

Macy's Linneah Modern Mirrors

Mirrors are known to open up a room but there’s no rule that you must choose one big reflective piece to do so. This set of four, abstract-shaped mirrors gives you the option to personalize the final look and position them however you please. Not to mention, reposition them a few months later if you want to ever-so-slightly switch things up.

SHOP: Linneah Modern Mirrors, Set of 4, Was $425, Now $224.40, available at Macy's

4ft. Potted Fiddle-Leaf Fig Tree by Ashland

Plants make any room feel more lively and fresh. But if your green thumb is out of commission, there’s no shame in scooping up a faux option. It’ll still provide the verdant vibes, but you’ll never feel bad if you go on vacation and forget to get a plant-sitter.

SHOP: 4ft. Potted Fiddle-Leaf Fig Tree by Ashland®, $47.99, available at Michael's

Malibu California Beach Framed Art Print

Be it a bathroom or bedroom, any space in the home can benefit from a bit of tranquility. And that’s exactly what this beach-side print evokes. The soft colors and gentle ripple of waves make for a beautiful scene. Plus, it’s scientifically supported that merely looking at a picture of water can help make you feel more serene. It’s something to keep in mind when you can’t make it to the beach in person. 

SHOP: Malibu California Beach Framed Art Print, Was $44.99, Now $37.19, available at Society 6

Overstock Carson Carrington Cassandra Modern Two-Tone Bookmatch

Some of the best pieces of décor also make life a little easier. Case in point: this sleek midcentury modern credenza.

Meanwhile, the outside can remain minimal with a couple of candlesticks, an elegant vase, or whatever else you’d like to display on top.

Marimekko Unikko Teapot

Finnish design house Marimekko makes some of the most bright, colorful, whimsical textiles that can be seen across clothing and home décor alike.

Dusen Dusen Face Pillow

Dusen Dusen is another brand whose playful prints span clothing and home. The Brooklyn-based company’s collection of stripes and multi-color towels are not to be missed, but if you want to change the look of your living room without investing in a new couch or chair, look no further than the brand’s throw pillows. This face design will contrast other textiles and pop against a more muted palette.

SHOP: Face Pillow, $74, available at Dusen Dusen

Simon Miller Casa Napkin Set

Not only is a set of fabric napkins a more eco-friendly option compared to paper, but frankly they’re also a lot nicer to look at. Particularly when it comes to this design by another fashion-and-home brand, Simon Miller. The sunny florals of this pattern feel especially optimistic and cheery. Try using them any old day of the week, not just the ones when you’re expecting company.
