Only got room for a li’l mirror? This crescent moon one would fit perfectly on smaller walls, such as ones in apartments or dorms. It has just enough space to see your whole face, so you can check that your eyeliner hasn’t smudged before you head out. Hang it by itself or surround it with other gothic boho wall hangings.
Sure, you could just get a simple table lamp. But why would you do that, when you could get a desk lamp that looks like a whole flower?

I love using accent chairs to create extra seating and interest in my small space. Even when they aren’t being used functionally, they can still look super stylish — like this one does.
