To Us, a new year brings new beginnings — a clean slate to start fresh. In addition to the New Year’s resolutions we’re trying to accomplish, we want to give our home a bit of a tune-up. Not a major makeover, just a few adjustments to spread cheer and spark joy.
While we’re at it, we might as well try to create some extra storage space! We found the best accent pieces from Amazon, Nordstrom and Walmart that will either add functionality or style. Spice up your setting and stay organized with this delightful decor starting at $16!
This Gold Balloon Figurine
Good as gold! This ceramic sculpture is reminiscent of Jeff Koons’ modern art. This fun find makes the perfect gift or playful decoration for your home. Choose from a dog, an elephant, a monkey or a rabbit. “There’s nothing to dislike! It’s a cute and fun statue that will make a pop in your space,” said one shopper.

These Distressed Ceramic Vases
Available in a set of three vases with five different colors to choose from, this bestselling product is both functional and ornamental. You can fill these vases with flowers or let the ceramic decor steal the spotlight as centerpieces. “Perfect pieces for home decor, particularly if you’re going for the rustic / ‘farmhouse’ look everyone is after these days,” one review reported. “They are so cute, great size, fits flowers or other stems nicely.”

It’s very sturdy and it really holds a lot.”

This Rustic Serving Tray
As you can probably tell by now, we’re big fans of utilizing products for various purposes.

The lightly distressed wood and bronze metal handles look luxurious.
