Rustic Room Refresh: {Sponsored by Walmart}

Today's post is sponsored by Walmart ! I love working with companies that provide quality products for great prices!  No need to break the bank in order to create a beautiful home! All opinions and product reviews are based on my personal experience with their products!

It is no secret that I have always used texture in my home to bring in interest. Having an all neutral home can seem pretty boring unless you find unique ways to add warmth, charm, texture and interest to each space!  For fall and winter this year, I decided to go with a rustic vibe in my living room.  Lots of luxurious, faux fur accents brought in all the cozy feels for those chilly nights curled up on the couch or those fun nights in spent with friends and family making memories! 

I found so many affordable and stylish products in Walmart's  Rustic Luxe Collection!  I selected a few new peices to add to my existing decor to create the perfect rustic retreat!

One of the easiest ways to switch up a space is to change out the throw pillows.  Walmart has such a great variety of affordable pillows that fit any style!  I went with a variety of faux fur options to jazz up my linen sofa!  You can check out their holiday textile collection HERE!

Here are the pillows that won me over! I love the way the different textures look together. This spot makes me want to grab a cup of coffee and snuggle up for a lazy evening!

Another simple way to add texture, warmth and color to a room is to bring in soft throw blankets!  

This sherpa blanket caught my eye online due to how plush it appeared and I am happy to report is lived up to my expectations when I received it!  I am going to have to grab a few more of these for gifts!

To finish off this room refresh, I did a quick switch-a-roo with a few rugs I already owned.  I moved my faux cowhide rug from my office to add to the rustic luxe vibe!  I have owned this rug for several years but Walmart has some very affordable, similar options here...

Budget Friendly Room Refresh with Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart

This post is sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart!  I am so excited to be a part of the BHG Live Better influencer network and look forward to sharing ideas, updates to my home and their affordable products with you! All opinions are my own. 

Since moving into my home a few years ago, my guest bedroom has pretty much been neglected.  I have stuck with the same bedding I had in my old house and while there was nothing wrong with it, it was definitely time for an update. Here is the room before...

The start of f
all kicks off the start of the holiday season and with that, I wanted to make sure my guest room was prepped for guests!  With the help of a few new finds from the Better Homes & Gardens line from Walmart, I was able to pull off a quick and inexpensive update!  

After rearranging the room, I was ready to shop! First up was new bedding!  I kept it simple with this gorgeous, white tufted duvet cover set.  I love the texture it adds to the space.  The quality is amazing especially given the very reasonable price!

While searching the Better Homes & Gardens pillow collection, I found this pretty pom pillow and knew it would coordinate perfectly with the duvet set.

I absolutely love the bedding and highly recommend it if you are in the market for new bedding.  It can be styled in so many different ways and can be switched up just by swapping out accent pillows and throws! 

Speaking of throws, the charming buffalo check was the perfect choice to balance out my black metal bed and add a touch of bold pattern to the room.  This throw is so soft and cozy and I knew it would be great for guests to snuggle up with!

My new bedding changed the whole look of the room for under $100.  I love that Better Homes & Gardens has made decorating so affordable!

Since my space is small, I took the "less is more" approach with accessories and other furniture.  The side table/desk was a DIY project I completed a few years ago after I came across the metal table base at a thrift store.  I painted and distressed 3 wood boards to create a top for it and it quickly became one of my favorite projects!  It is perfect in this space because it gives my guests a place to work if needed, a place to sit down and relax a bit and, of course, it acts as a perfect night stand! 

I added this Parisian style, outdoor bistro chair because I loved the vintage touch is brought into the space! Don't be afraid to use outdoor items indoors!  The great thing about this chair is that I can use it for extra seating outdoors when needed!

To bring in some warmth, coziness and a little comfort to this area, I selected a beautiful tassel throw pillow!  The fringe, tassels, fun pattern and great price were too good to pass up!

To style my side table, I added this darling house lantern and potted faux succulent.  I think every room needs a plant...and the ones that don't require any water make things easier!

I filled the lantern with some bottled water and snacks so that my guests have something easily accessible when needed!

Isn't it perfect?!  Also, the lantern is another item that I can use elsewhere when I do not have guests over.  I cannot wait to incorporate it into my Christmas decor this year!

The finishing touch to the desk area was this concrete-look table lamp.  Lamp lighting adds so much ambiance to a room and is great for late night reading!

I am so pleased with the way the room turned out! The best part is I was able to accomplish a whole new look on such a small budget!

Once my guest room was all complete, I couldn't help but want to update my guest bathroom.  I found everything I needed shopping the Better Homes & Gardens bath line at Walmart and found the best stuff to coordinate with my guest bedroom! A fun, tassel trim shower curtain, a few new towels and a handy storage bin gave this space a big change on a small budget!

This cute, storage bin is perfect for small spaces without a lot of storage.  Fill it with everything your guests need to make them feel right at home!

Now both my guestroom and guest bathroom are ready for visitors!

With holiday gatherings just around the corner, I highly recommend checking out the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart if you are wanting to update any room in your home!  They truly have something to fit everyone's style!

Touches of Fall: {Office Refresh}

Today I am excited to be partnering with Walmart for this post.  All opinions are my own.  I love working with retailers who provide quality products at affordable prices and Walmart does just that! As always, thanks for stopping by and supporting this little blog of mine!

With the arrival of each new season, I love making small changes in my home that will result in a big impact.  For me, fall is a time to fill your home with cozy blankets, oversized pillows, seasonal touches, yummy smelling candles and of course, friends and family! I want my home to feel warm and inviting the minute someone steps inside!  With my office being the first room you see when you walk in my front door, I decided the little reading nook area would be a great place for a few fall updates.  It is amazing how just switching up a few things can make the room feel completely refreshed! 

I shopped my home for most of the items I used but did grab some goodies from Walmart's Fall Harvest Collection to finish off the space!  They have such a great variety of items to fit everyone's style and their prices are almost too good to be true!  

Throw pillows and throw blankets are both great, inexpensive items to switch out seasonally.  I found a large variety of both at Walmart and have linked some of my favorites towards the end of the post.  For my space, I decided these gray colorblock pillows complimented the woven pillows I already owned!

Link: {Similar look} Woven Pillow

I always have throw blankets easily accessible no matter what season it is...{because I am always cold}...but I grabbed a few new ones because you can never have too many throws and they were so affordable! 

I kept the décor simple in this space but did add a few seasonal touches.  A few new additions to this room are the black, metal lanterns, the black and gold metal tray and the black and gold task lamp. Do you see a theme?  I love the contrast of the black against the lighter gray tones in this space!

I shopped my house for all the other items used here.  It's always so fun to mix and match new pieces with décor you already own for a fresh, new look!

Loving the new updated look!  Now I am ready to have a friend over for coffee and conversation!

Early Fall Entryway: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

This post is sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart!  I am so excited to be a part of the BHG Live Better influencer network and look forward to sharing ideas, updates to my home and their affordable products with you! All opinions are my own. 

Fall weather hasn't quite arrived in the Dallas area just yet, but if I waited for the weather to dictate when it was okay to break out the pumpkins, it might be close to Christmas!  So, with that said, it was time to add a few touches of fall to my entryway despite our summer like temps!  Since I am a neutral loving gal and do not use the typical colors of fall, I decided a touch of metallic gold would be a fun way to jazz up my typical neutral scheme!

I found some great stuff from the Better Homes & Gardens line available at Walmart!  

Let's take a look at what this space looked like before...I love what I had here but it was time for a new look.  Don't worry, though, I did not get rid of any of these pieces and you will see them again!

And now  for the new look....

You may notice that I changed furniture in this space!  I am constantly switching things up and when I saw this cute bench, I knew it would be perfect in this space. It was around $100 and super easy to put together.  I really liked that it came with a gray cushion and the metal construction makes it extremely sturdy!  Bonus points...it can also be used outside! 

To add some texture and a touch of coziness, I added these beautiful, textured throw pillows and a cozy, striped throw blanket.  If you have followed me for awhile, you know I am a sucker for fringe!  These pillows are under $20...a total steal!  The striped throw is a great deal as well.  Since my space is so neutral, I love how the stripes add interest!

Subtle metallic touches were added using items like this gold framed mirror.  I love how the shape breaks up all the angles in this room and the subtle gold frame adds some shimmer to my neutrals.  I simply layered a cotton wreath on top of the mirror for a seasonal touch!  

These black, metal baskets were the perfect way to add storage space under the bench...or in this case, a unexpected place for more touches of fall! The metallic gold handles tie in nicely with the mirror!

Another pop of gold was brought in by adding this darling Edison bulb lamp.  The marble base gives it a modern vibe while the gold cage top adds a vintage, industrial feel.  I love mixing vintage items with new items so it was a perfect fit!

I love the way this little entryway nook turned out and the touches of metallic are perfect for fall!

Since my staircase landing is also visible from my entryway, I decided to continue the metallic touches up the stairs....

This pretty, metallic gold lantern is perfect to style with seasonal touches.  For now it holds tiny white pumpkins but it will be easy to transition it for Christmas!  Pinecones, candles, ornaments, bottle brush trees...so many options!  I love pieces like this that can be switched up for every season! 

Speaking of lanterns...I couldn't resist these modern, hanging lanterns!  When I saw them, I knew they would be perfect hanging from my vintage mechanic's rack!  Another mix of modern and vintage!  These lantern are another item that I can be easily updated for each season!

Just a few simple touches and my entryway is ready for fall!  Now if we could just get some cool fall weather, we would be all set!

What colors do you typically use for fall decor?  Do you prefer more traditional fall colors or do you like to add colors that compliment your existing color scheme?
