Accessories That Make A Difference For $500 Or Less

In this living room by Woodson and Rummerfield, well-edited accessories complement the elegant design.
Giving your home — or just a room — a whole new look doesn’t have to be a complicated project. Though color and new furniture have the biggest impact, you’d be surprised at what a difference smaller accessories can make. First, there’s the instant gratification: It’s far easier and faster to add a few vases to a mantel, sideboard, or dining table than it is to repaint an entire room. Second, there’s the affordability factor: It’s far more budget-friendly to invest in accessories than it is to replace all your furniture. A few well-chosen pieces can add color, pattern, and new energy to even the most familiar spaces. Here are just a handful of our favorites currently for sale at Viyet, all under $500:

Arteriors Devon Mirrored Tray, $275

Why we love it: A tray isn’t just a practical accessory that helps contain decorative items, cocktail hour necessities, or perfumes and makeup. It also can be an elegant showpiece that catches the eye, like this mirrored design.

Amethyst Bookends, $495

Why we love them: Bookends are always one of the most delightful accessory purchases one can make — in fact, it can be hard to narrow your options down! But this pair of custom bookends are sure to be one of your favorite pieces in your home for years to come. The organic patterns and mesmerizing shades of purple stand out from the shelf without shifting the focus away from your fabulous books.

Why we love it: Great pillows can be found at every price, making them a budget-friendly way to give your sofa or chairs a whole new look. This sumptuously textured pillow gives any seat a far more luxurious vibe.

Asian Decorative Arts Hexagonal Porcelain Vases, $185

Why we love them: It’s all about color and silhouette in these graceful vessels. The sunny hue stands out in any setting and also brings out the natural vibrancy of any bloom. However, they’d also be just as stunning when displayed on their own.

B&B Italia Outdoor Pillows, $150

Why we love them: Even if you live in a part of the country where going outdoors requires much in the way of layering this time of year, outdoor pillows are an excellent choice for the home. They are often made in fabrics that take vibrant color exceptionally well, like the dazzling purple of this pair of pillows. Use them indoors now, then enjoy them as soon as the temperature climbs above 65.

Pacific Coast Lighting Geometrically Shaped Wall Mirror, $300

Why we love it: Whether displayed on its own over a table or sideboard, incorporated into a gallery wall, or used as the star accessory in a powder room, a mirror is one of those accessories that make an immediate impact in a room. They help reflect light and its surroundings, making rooms feel bigger and brighter. Of course, they’re also beautiful on their own, like this shapely mirror. It works exceptionally well on a bold-hued wall, which allows the white finish of the frame to stand out even more.

Maitland-Smith Silver Gilded Wall Brackets, $280

Why we love them: Brackets are often overlooked as accessories, but can bring welcome versatility to your walls. These gleaming, modern brackets have a dramatic presence, yet are also effective as a display spot for another objet d’art.

Vintage Suzani Textile, $140

Why we love it: Suzanis are a favorite of Instagram darlings and stylish design blogs everywhere. It’s easy to see why: Each is a one-of-a-kind testament to the power of handicraft. This suzani is no exception. It’s gorgeously detailed with needlework, in rich colors that stand out in any setting. Though it’s sold unframed, its square size makes it relatively easy to frame.
