A well-stocked bedroom is a great way to turn even the smallest room into your own Shangri-La. But, what should you add?

Choosing some cool accessories all depends on your personal style. Mood lighting, quirky pillows, and an elegant throw will always add a classy touch of cool to your home. When in doubt, stick to buying things in neutral colors.

Awesome Things For Your Bedroom

Are you ready to see what yours truly would want for their bedroom? These items below make for a great gift and a great decorative touch.

1. Moon Lamps By Welkey

via Amazon

Moon lamps are a major breakout cool gift of the year, and it’s easy to see why. This handheld lamp has a remote control, the ability to change colors, and some decent lasting time. Along with it coming with its own stand, the moon lamp offers up a soft ambient glow that looks amazing in almost any home.

This is a good housewarming gift and happens to be surprisingly affordable. You can snag one from Amazon, from one of many different retailers.

2. The Crumpled Trash Bin by ESSEY

via Amazon

As a fan of modern art, I love seeing unique and quirky items that add a little subversive “pop” to your room. If you are looking for a way to make people rethink trash, you might want to check out these “rumpled” trash bins made by ESSEY. The whole idea is to make them look like they’re refuse, themselves.

Are they pricey? Yep, but if you have an art studio it’s basically a must-have. I mean, look at them. They’re awesome.

3. Tufted Shell Chairs by Rivet

via Amazon

Does the name “Rivet” sound familiar to you? It should. It’s a favorite brand of many hip and happening people, and also happens to be one of the many brands that has been created by Amazon. Believe it or not, their furniture is both affordable and stylish.

Most bedrooms have at least one chair where people like to sit, or at least throw clothes on. This could be that chair for you. Think about that.

4. Two-Tiered Nightstand by Rivet

via Amazon

It’s oh, so hard to find a cute nightstand these days. This is especially true if you don’t want to go for the heavy, blocky look that is often associated with traditional ones. Rivet’s streamlined modern look comes in clutch here, especially for people who love rose gold and marble. As a Millennial, I understand that love.

This small side table is perfect for people who don’t necessarily want to have too much clutter on their table. It’s just large enough for a lamp, a pillbox, and maybe a stack of books on the bottom shelf.

5. LED Light Strip Kit by TJOY

via Amazon

Light strips are a go-to for virtually any type of youthful person. Heck, even older people love the glamorous appearance that they can offer. Backlighting is a thing, you know? Surprisingly, getting LED light strips for your home is not going to be that expensive. They are also easy to install.

TJOY is a brand that lets you get color changing (!!!!) light strips that are 50 feet long and trimmable. Best of all? They are under $20.

6. LED Ceiling Fan by Bustling World

via Amazon

Are you the type of person who loves to have statement lighting? Do you own, rather than rent, your own place? That’s awesome. That means that you can probably install this amazing ceiling fan light. It’s a low-maintenance, high impact light fixture that features invisible wind blades and an icy appearance.

Modern? Yes! Color-changing? Yep, it’s LED-based and comes with its own remote control. So, if you just need to add some party lighting to your home, this is a smart choice. It goes from classy to funky in the flip of a button.

7. 8 Candle Tin Set by Thornwolf

via Amazon

You know what isn’t cool? Having a bedroom that smells like dirty laundry. Of course, it happens, even if you’re pretty fastidious about cleaning. You know what’s cool? Having colorful tins filled with wax that can help release a beautiful scent in your bedroom.

This is an eight pack of cute tins filled with soy wax. It’s a clean burn that will help reduce your stress and improve your unwinding moments.

8. Bergamot & Jasmine Candle by Benevolence

via Amazon

So, there seems to be three different schools on candle aesthetics: the “boho” look that is heavy on paint, the clean “fashion designer” look, and the concrete pottery look. This candle fits into the second category neatly, all the way down to the illustrious city on the label.

Benevolence makes beautifully scented candles that are potent, but not too potent. Oh, and they also donate to charity.

9. Rose Dust Scented Candle by Blomus

via Amazon

So, Blomus is a fairly new brand that’s been making a name for itself through the use of its high-quality soy wax candles. They have a number of awesome scents, but I happen to enjoy Rose Dust the most. So, since I decided to do a little highlight on each of the “cool” candle styles, this is going to be the poured concrete type.

This has a nice, lightly colored concrete shell that makes for an amazing vase or potting planter once you’re done burning stuff away.

10. Round Wall Mount Mirrors by Elements

via Amazon

There are few things that open up a bedroom like having some well-placed mirrors. Elements created a new, hot set of mirrors that will help you make sure that your room looks bigger…and help you look at yourself while you’re getting ready for that next event. Mirrors are awesome.

This set of seven mirrors is one of the better ways to make a mirror into a statement item in your home. They can be arranged any way that you want. Oh, and installation is a breeze!

11. Rainbow Sunflower Cushion by SUVIA

via Amazon

So, if you’re in the arts scene, then you already know which artist this reminds you of. Even though this is super hippie, most people who are into the modern art world will appreciate this. Of course, you don’t have to be an art fiend to love the happy, smiley face that this cute little cushion boasts.

I’m just going to say that this is a Hypebeast must. K?

12. Dia De Los Muertos Pillow by Gerson International

via Amazon

If you are a fan of Halloween, you might as well get into the world of the unliving with your bedroom decor…At least for the month of October. This cute sugar skull pillow is a great way to add a bold, bright, and ever-so-slightly goth vibe to your bedroom.

Admittedly, this is not a pillow that’s for everyone. However, that’s kind of the point of being cool. Cool is all about expressing yourself. That’s part of what makes this so neat.

13. 3D Ruffle Flower Pillow by Oiseau Voleur

via Amazon

Of course, cool doesn’t always have to be heavy-handed. Sometimes, a subtle touch that’s nested in texture is better. In the case of this cute 13-inch pillow, you get to enjoy the ubiquitously popular look of white flowers with a nice, subtle addition of texture.

The ruffles and petals of this decorative pillow are super soft. You might end up loving it as a sleeper pillow!

14. New York City Bedspread by Sapphire Home

via Amazon

New York City has that perennially cool vibe that makes people fall in love with it over and over again. It’s no surprise, then, that bedspreads often involve the kind of aesthetic that is brought up by the Big Apple. This greyscale bedspread works with any color scheme and has a gritty urban feel that works well with almost any vibe.

If you are looking for a quick way to add a pop of color to your room, this isn’t it. If you want to add a punch of awesome, then by all means, do it.

15. Skyline Watercolor Painting by ArtPrint

via Amazon

Speaking of New York City, it’s time we have a city skyline appreciation thread. Or at the very least, let’s talk about how gorgeous a city skyline is when it’s painted in bright, beautiful colors. This adorable print reveals all the cool little details that make the Big Apple look amazing.

When framed, it turns into a sleek, elegant rendition of what city life is all about.

16. Distressed Vase by Sullivans

via Amazon

Cool doesn’t have to mean that everything looks fresh off the press. Sometimes, a little wear and tear is just what the doctor ordered. This distressed vase offers up a cute pop of modernity without making it look like you try too hard. It’s a solid build with a little love.

People who like minimalist decor will love it because it’s literally the definition of minimalism. Folks who love maximalism will love it because of the fact that it doesn’t take away from other decor.

17. Real Mongolian Lamb Fur Pillow by Occasion Gallery Store

via Amazon

With a lot of home designers, color is not the primary focus of a bedroom. I mean, well, it is, but it’s also not. Color is only a fraction of the design concept that you should keep in mind. A major portion of the design schema is the textures that you incorporate. This throw pillow? Oh yeah, you better believe it has texture.

This is a pillow that is made with a real lamb’s skin. Sure, it’s not vegan-friendly, but it’s definitely a vibe for life. It would work particularly well on a leather sofa or next to some leather pillows. That contrast will slay in most homes, trust me on that.

18. Cast Iron Jack by GSM

via Amazon

While minimalism and space-saving is definitely trending, there is something to be said about adding decorative accents. You know what I mean, right? Those decorative accents that seem to be just made to act as a mini-statuette or something similar? This jack toy is large and in charge, and it’s there for the sheer point of being an industrial accent.

This jack is an oversized statue that is 5 inches tall, and it’s meant to act as either a paperweight or a doorstop. Either way, we’re sure you’re going to get compliments.

19. Burrito Blanket by CASOFU

via Amazon

You know, the cutest thing I ever read online was about a guy who wrapped up his sleeping girlfriend like a burrito. Ever since then, I was all about the burrito sleep vibe. This throw blanket takes it to a new level by actually turning the blanket into a burrito wrap.

Sure, it’s not edible, but it’s still an adorable way to wrap yourself up like a burrito. So, so cute!

20. Compassion Blanket by Wolf Creek Blanket

via Amazon

There is something innately awesome about having a blanket that is both functional and cute. Such is the case with the Compassion Blanket. This is a blanket that seems to have been invented with the idea of having people get a warm hug from the blanket, plus reminders of what’s important.

It’s a complete package as far as warmth goes. Inspirational words are on the front. It’s made of warm fleece and has a cozy lining. Best of all, it’s available in a wide range of different colors too.

21. Woven Storage Bins by Lab Cosi

via Amazon

If you’re like me, you like to keep a couple of knickknacks in your bedroom. Ideally, you will keep them within arm’s reach. It could be some snacks, a couple of magazines, or even just a cute eye mask you wear to sleep. When you have stuff like this in your home, you need a place to store it. That’s where having some cute storage bins can help.

Lab Cosi makes some really durable storage bins that do not necessarily have too much flair. This makes them a great choice for people who want to avoid having too much going on in their bedroom. Even so, they’re elegant in their own right.

22. Orange Carton Vase by ban.do

via Amazon

I might be a bit biased in this suggestion, primarily because I have one of these in my home. This is not just an orange juice carton. It’s a ceramic vase that adds a little sunny charm to your life, and it’s by one of my favorite designers, band.do. This is one of those statement pieces that ALWAYS elicits compliments.

So, let me tell you about this. It’s a little bit of pop art in real life. It fits a very petite but tall bouquet—perfect for carnations or tiger lilies. You’re going to adore it.

23. Body Vase by Lovecat

via Amazon.com

For aeons, artists got inspiration from the human body. It only makes sense that people would end up mimicking it in artwork. Unsurprisingly, this means that a lot of the coolest accessories for your bedroom would have a steamy touch of boudoir glamour. In this case, it’s a vase that looks exactly like a woman’s lower torso.

Provocative and modern at the same time, this is a cute way to make sure that you dial up the intimate vibes of your home in a classy way.

24. Desktop Glass Terrarium Stand by Marbrasse

via Amazon

Coolness is one of those things that tends to differ from person to person. However, it’s going to be hard to ignore how awesome this work of art is. This is a glass vase that can double as a small home for a terrarium. Oh, and it’s in the shape of a light bulb. Why is it a light bulb? I don’t know, but it’s a bright idea.

This is a good choice for people who want to add steampunk flair to their home, or just want a more unusual way to make a cute home for their plant life.

25. Boho Desert Blanket by LR Home Store

via Amazon

Throw blankets are always a good investment, especially when they are as exotic-looking as this bohemian-style blanket. This is made of superbly soft, touchable cotton and then woven into a cute pattern with yarn stripes and a touchable fringe.

It looks elegant when it’s thrown on your bed. It also feels so nice to the touch. What’s not to love about this chic accessory?

26. Geode Clock by JIC Gem

via Amazon

It seems like everyone is getting more into the world of gems and crystals, so why not join the trend? This clock is made from a real, all-natural agate geode slice. Then, it’s given a cool clock face and a nice little stand. While the color is enhanced, it’s a legit geode and that makes it awesome.

If you’re curious, it’s Brazilian agate–one of the better types. Since each geode slice is different, each clock will be somewhat different too.

27. Personal Fireplaces by FLIKR Fire

via Amazon

There is something about having a fireplace that is amazing for your home’s decor and intimacy levels. Unfortunately, most homes do not fare well with fireplaces if they’re renters. I mean, your landlord would flip if you tried to install your own fireplace…or would they? If it’s this cute thing by FLIKR, you might have a shot at having a fireplace in your room.

This is a petite, safe-for-indoors fireplace that’s portable and cute. All you need to make sure that it runs well is to get a small amount of isopropyl alcohol for fuel.

28. Cactus Reed Diffuser by Round A Round

via Amazon

Cacti are some of the coolest plants around, at least as far as trends go. People are into their spiky, sleek appearance these days. Maybe it’s the succulent trend? Probably. Either way, not all of us have a green thumb. That’s why having cactus-shaped stuff is a major “in crowd” thing these days.

Round A Round is one of the newer brands to make aesthetic items that feature cute designs. Their most recent offering is going to be a hit. It’s a gypsum diffuser that helps release fragrance throughout your apartment. Oh, and it’s in the shape of a cactus.

29. Peach Teal Collage Kit by Artivo

via Amazon

Fun fact about me: as an art fanatic, I have over 150 pieces of artwork in my home. One of the reasons for this is because I have one of these sets of collage-ready postcards as a source of my artwork. This collage artwork group features 50 different prints, all done up in peach and teal. They’re gorgeous!

If you want to make sure that you have a cute theme and want to put together art of your own, this kit is a good move on your end. It also comes with a decorative box and a small set of flowers. So, it’s a pretty neat kit altogether. Get creative with it!

So, technically this is more commonly marketed towards bathrooms, but this is also an amazing addition to a bedroom where you need a mirror. You see, this is not just a mirror. Heck, it’s not even just a light-up mirror, either. It’s a smart mirror, which means you get added functionality.
