A Good Space Is Everything—27 Unique Décor Finds to Achieve Just That

The first steps of moving in and decorating a space are fun and thrilling—it's like mapping out a blank canvas with infinite potential. You're excited to find the perfect bed, couch, or rug, and it's satisfying when everything comes together. But what happens two or three years later?

Furniture and décor are much like a closet full of clothes in that it's natural not to feel the same zeal years later. I bought a big piece of art from Etsy before deciding I absolutely couldn't stand it months later. Within a year, my tastes had shifted to favor more moody neutrals, proving the design process is truly never-ending. But instead of completely revamping my apartment or spending thousands of dollars on new furniture, I found tiny décor swaps could have a big impact. Sometimes a small switch can change a room in the same way a new couch can. 

Creating a space you actually want to be in might mean adding a sconce or two or creating mood lighting with a fancy candle. Whether it's a new rug or a new pillow, unique home décor can go a long way. For a list of objects currently on my shortlist, keep browsing below.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
