Awkward Corner Solution

This uniquely-shaped dresser works perfectly as a nightstand, but it's a great storage option for an odd corner or a small entryway to hold essentials like keys, gloves and gear for your dog. BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $799

Pinboards for Everyone

You could probably find a perfectly good bulletin board at your local office supply store, but it might be time for an upgrade. These narrow-framed bulletin boards are sleek and sophisticated, and they work in virtually any room. Hang them in your kitchen to display your kids' artwork or in the mudroom by the door to help you remember what to grab on the way out the door. BUY IT: Pottery Barn Teen, $269

Dirty Clothes Never Looked So Good

This woven hamper is so pretty, you won't mind leaving it out on display. Tuck it in the corner of your bedroom, or put it in a guest bathroom for dirty towels. The leather handles make the hamper is easy to move around the house or bring down to the laundry room on laundry day. BUY IT: RH Teen, $189

An Eye-Catching Piece of Art

Macrame and textile weavings have been having a moment for quite a while now. We think this well-priced metal wall hanging completely flips the script and offers a fresh look. Use this wall hanging instead of a typical framed piece of artwork in your entryway, sitting area, above your bed or even in a bathroom. BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $39

Have Fun In Your Bathroom

It's hard to look at this adorable flamingo shower curtain and not immediately smile. This piece is from Target's kid line Pillowfort, but it would still look great in any grown-up's bathroom too. If you're not quite ready to dive into these fun colors in your own bathroom, try using a shower curtain like this in a guest bath. BUY IT: Target, $16.14

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

If you lack space in your bedroom for jewelry or makeup storage, meet your new best friend. Mount this all-in-one piece to your wall. It's mighty in terms of storage space despite its size. The petite shelf under the mirror is a perfect spot for your favorite makeup, your perfume collection and nail polish stash. Use the acrylic bar for jewelry storage, scarves or your clutches and wristlets. BUY IT: Pottery Barn Teen, $79

Put Away Your Stuff in Style

For all of you super organized people out there, you know it's a tough, ongoing battle to find stylish storage pieces. Plastic pieces can sometimes look cheap, and fabric bins might scream "I belong in a nursery." But these woven gold baskets are straight up cool. Use these in your bedroom closet for your accessories or under your bathroom sink to store all your must-have items. You could even use these in a linen closet to store washcloths, pillowcases and hand towels. BUY IT: Bed, Bath & Beyond, $14.99

See Through Storage Table

This chic coffee table marries fashion with function. Fred Segal, the trendsetting boutique in Los Angeles, teamed up recently with CB2 to design a line of furniture and decor. This coffee table is one of our favorite pieces from the collection. A tray on top of the wood base allows you to display your magazines or coffee table books. Slide out the wood base, remove the tray, and voila! You have some hidden additional storage. BUY IT: CB2, $799

Pretty in Pink Mirror

While this mirror is not necessarily the best choice to see your reflection, it's so chic you might not even care. It may be rocking millennial pink vibes, but we think it's easy to make this work in almost any fashion-forward grown-up's house. Use this instead of art in your home's entry or as a focal piece in your dining room. BUY IT: RH Teen, $355

A Stylish Outdoor Rug

Just like stylish storage pieces, chic outdoor rugs are a unicorn in the design world. This simple 8x10 rug from RH Teen is so sleek you can place it indoors or out. If you have a tricky, high-traffic area in your home, choosing an outdoor rug is a great solution. They are easy to maintain, and this one is budget-friendly! BUY IT: Land of Nod, $399
