Vintage enthusiasts will want to follow Tiffany Skilling's lead when it comes to Amazon picks. "We purchase vintage and antique frames, mirrors, and furniture pieces often, and they always have a couple of blemishes on them," says the founder of Tiffany Skilling Interiors. "We use Rub-N-Buff to touch them up while still maintaining their character." This four-pack contains a mix of finishes; Skilling is partial to the antique gold and gold leaf.

"Such an easy decor staple."

If you're tackling some home organization projects at the moment, you may find yourself in need of a few extra bins and baskets. Emily Klapowski, the founder of You Neek Designs, shares her go-to style. "These storage bins are great for the bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, or pantry," she notes. "They stack and you can put cute labels on the front." She even uses these to organize her own design studio since they're so versatile.

Given that Klapowski operates a renovation firm, she is often sourcing items such as this exhaust fan. "Shower ventilation fan and light combos are all ugly," says Klapowski. "This is our favorite because it is frosted glass, not plastic. It’s available with various metal finishes, and it’s a nice clean neutral aesthetic." But most importantly, it's a practical pick. "It functions beautifully with a powerful and quiet fan, night light, and full light that we switch independently of each other to give the client total flexibility," states Klapowski.

Amazon is an excellent resource for small indoor furniture pieces. "This three-drawer chest fits so many purposes," notes Brooke Lawer, the founder of Brooke Haven. "The dimensions make it the perfect size to tuck next to a couch in the living room, as a nightstand, or combine two together for an affordable dresser!" Lawer appreciates the storage this dresser offers but is also a fan of the piece's overall aesthetic. "I love how the fluted detail adds a modern touch to the classic, simple shape," she adds.

Add instant character to any of the walls in your home with this classic wall panel. "Box trim, picture molding, and board and batten are always classic, and they’re trending right now," says Lawer. "I often recommend these types of wall treatments to clients looking to elevate their space on a budget. Now, this relatively new product makes it even easier! It’s a kit of trim that arrives pre-made and ready to hang." The best part about the kit is that it doesn't require a miter saw or any cutting, so it'll save you time and hassle.
