When your home is bombarded with clutter or has maintained exactly the same look for the past decade, there’s a good possibility that it’s time to consider mixing things up . No, we aren’t talking about costly home renovations or purchasing all new furniture. However, keeping the essentials and purchasing some visually appealing items is essential. Rotating home decor, which interior decorators recommend doing every three years to avoid boredom, is another way to improve how you feel about the appearance of your home.

There are plenty of relatively inexpensive options you can rotate every few years or at your leisure: throw pillows, indoor plants, wall art, bedding, storage baskets, duvet covers, and more. Then there are staples that can remain year round—pieces that are meaningful to you or simply spruce up your home without the need to relocate or frequently replace them.

When you switch up the look of your home without breaking the bank, studies show that you will feel more content and get an overall boost in mood . We’ve hand-selected some of our favorite home decor options to get you started. And don’t worry, you can thank us later.

Then again, the couch and bed aren’t the only place for pillows! Our favorite way to cozy up a space is with some colorful, oversize floor pillows, like these tufted beauties from Fredricks. Not only do they add some extra seating–they can quickly become the most coveted spot for movie night.

Thraie Assos Peshtemal



Assos Peshtemal

Regular towels have a tendency of acquiring a mildew odor in addition to harboring a ton of bacteria. Thriae’s peshtemals are the best of the best—they look beautiful in the bathroom due to their calming color palettes, and the material dries much faster than regular towels.

The Turkish long cotton and flat weave is soft and absorbent, and with five colors to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits you, while making bath time more peaceful than ever.

The Ion Lamp from Schoolhouse–the masters of gorgeous lighting–looks just as eye-catching off as it does on. With the bulb exposed it illuminates with the most warm and calming light, almost like candle light–a perfect lamp for bedside tables and late night working sessions.

Pink Calla Blooming Plant

There are several studies that have proven indoor plants can give us a better quality of life and improve the state of our mental health. We can change the way our home looks and how it makes us feel by placing plants in every room and switching them out as we please.

Plants.com is excellent for premium quality plants, and personally, we are partial to the pink calla lilies—they’re low maintenance and even come with an attractive gold mister which is a really nice touch.

Consider the sophisticated textiles from Pom Pom at Home the “coastal grandma” of housewares. To say we’re obsessed would be an understatement. From the natural fibers to the muted, earthy colors, their oversize throws offer an instant Nancy Meyer’s worthy upgrade to your bedroom or living room. We love the way the Laurel Oversize Throw, with its stonewashed linen texture pulls our summertime bedroom look together.


It’s hard to pick a favorite, but we’re partial to the texture and softness of the stonewashed linen Laurel Oversize Throw which is the perfect summer blanket.

Lorena Canals zoco basket

Lorena Canals


Zoco Basket

Let’s stop throwing random toys, unworn clothes, and knick-knacks on closet floors— they end up piling up so high that organizing becomes too overwhelming. Instead, invest in some pretty baskets and store clothes, kids toys, skincare products, and more inside. This handmade basket is crafted from woven cotton, and is sized rather generously, so you won’t need many to declutter your home. Best of all, it has handles for easy transport!

Revival Flatweave Rug

Revival Rugs


Pétanque Rug

When you’re living in a house with wood floors, area rugs can provide your living space with a homey, welcoming vibe. This specific rug is unique in that it is made for indoor or outdoor use— and they’re made from water bottles (460-500 to be exact) which would have otherwise ended up in landfills.

Ruggable light grey shag rug



Shag Rug

If you’re looking for something a little cozier, you’ll love the modern shag styles from Ruggable. They’re fluffy and inviting, but what’s even more appealing is the fact that they’re also water-resistant, stain-resistant, and completely machine-washable. And while it’s not a total must, if you’ve got wood floors, I highly recommend their cushioned rug pad which makes it extra comfy for those impromptu floor naps and doesn’t move an inch.

Raquel Decorative Mirror

Nothing can help make a space feel more open and alive than a well-placed mirror. This fresh, circular style is a fab addition to your entryway or bedroom with its go-with-everything bronze frame and impactful but not too big size.

Simply hang from a hook on the ceiling and enjoy the beauty of arranged fruit and your newfound counter space.

Sunday Citizen Burano Lumbar Pillow

Burano Lumbar Pillow

We’re big fans of the year-round coziness of Sunday Citizen. Their signature knits are one of our favorite bedroom additions and while we love their neutrals, we can never resist a pop of color. Which is why we’re doubly psyched about this striped version of the ultra huggable lumbar pillow! Rich hues mixed with a full body snuggle buddy? Yes please.

Entryway Rack

The versatile and stylish Entryway rack from the swoon-worthy Open Spaces look amazing in any room of the house, but the low profile really shines in kid spaces. The powder-coated steel minimalist shelf comes in seven colors (dark green, navy, light blue, cream, light pink, light blue and black) and the brand offers a variety of compatible bins to keep smaller things organized on the shelves.

Kohler Showerhead




Sure, you don’t need to switch out your current shower head on a regular basis like you enjoy doing with farm-fresh flowers. But what about splurging on a brand new one that’s equipped with Bluetooth or Alexa enabled technology, a removable wireless speaker that you can take with you on the go, and a magnetic charging dock? We don’t think shower time gets much better than that.

You even have the ability to use voice activation so you can make phone calls or perhaps listen to your favorite tunes; whatever you choose, you’re sure to have a blast. Bonus points: The shower head itself is visually appealing and has phenomenal water pressure.
