Easy Tips for a Quick Room Refresh: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens}

As a Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker, I am honored to work with their amazing brand sharing their stylish and affordable line of home products available at Walmart! As always, any product reviews or opinions are honest feedback from my personal experience.  This post contains affiliate links to Walmart, which means the brand rewards me with a small commission for any sale resulting from a link click through from my blog.  I am excited to share my January project with you today!

Once all the Christmas decor is packed away, I crave a clean, simple look around the house.  I love creating a fresh, new look using items I already have mixed with a few new pieces.  There are so many quick and easy ways to give your space a new look and the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart has everything you need!  

I did a quick refresh of my family room and love the way it turned out.  Since it is still winter, I wanted to keep it cozy but also use items that will transition into spring.  Here is what I came up with...


First, I wanted to spruce up my fireplace area with some new items.  I've had the same decor since I moved in 4.5 years ago so I was definitely ready for a change.  I found these resin standing planters in the garden section and knew they would be a great addition.  I love the subtle boho feel they add!  



I styled them with a snake plant, birch wood logs and some vintage bottes I had.  I will probably swap the logs for another plant this spring.  Another idea, use the planter to store extra throw blankets!

Another change I made was adding this fluffy, shag rug.  Rugs can make such an impact on a room and can totally change the feel of the room.  Whether you want to define a space within a room, add in a new color or pattern or just bring in a warmer feel to the room, rugs can do it all!  The subtle trellis pattern of the one I went with adds interest without being overwhelming.  It is so soft and cozy and really ties the room together. Better Homes & Gardens has so many great rugs, check out their collection if you are in the market for one!

Another quick way to update a space is to add a new piece of furniture.  If you don't want to add anything new, then you can rearrange what you have or swap pieces from other rooms.  I added this gray tufted storage ottoman to use in my space.  I love that I can move it around as needed.

I also couldn't resist this adorable tray table...technically an outdoor plant stand, but that just means it is more durable!  I love the design on the top!

If you are looking for the quickest and most affordable way to achieve a new look, swap out pillows and throw blankets.  It's such an inexpensive way to bring in a new color, pattern or texture. Since it is still winter, I wanted to keep the cozy feel in this room.  These cable knit sweater pillows from the Better Homes & Gardens line did just that.  They look so cozy on my couch and the color is such a pretty contrast on my sofa!

And of course, all rooms need a cozy, plush throw to curl up with!

Adding a few new accents is also an affordable way to bring in a new look!  I love how this natural weave tray ties in with my new planters.  I kept it super simple with a great smelling candle, faux fern potted plant and set of coasters.  Super easy but looks pulled together.

With only a few more weeks until Christmas, shopping is in full swing!  I have marked a few people off my list, but still have a lot to do!  Today I wanted to show you some great gift ideas that I found from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart. I love that they have something for everyone and their products are so affordable.  I hope you find my ideas helpful! 

Let's start with the gifts for the gals...

I do not know about you, but I am all about self care and relaxing!  Better Homes & Gardens has everything you need for the gal that loves an at home spa day!  


Giving the gift of relaxation is as easy as picking up a wood bath tray, comfy bath pillow and wonderful smelling candle!  Who wouldn't want these goodies?


Just add bubble bath, a good book and a favorite beverage and it is time to relax!

For those gals that love to stay warm and cozy....(raising my hand), the gift of warmth is always appreciated!

From luxurious throws to cozy pillows, Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart has coziness covered.

Not only are their options cozy, they are also so beautiful and look great in any space!

I also love this adorable space heater.  The faux flames add so much charm to the room and it has customizable heat settings to keep everyone happy.   Another item that is sure to be a hit!

The perfect spot to curl up on a cold, winter day!

The next gift is great for anyone....friends, teachers, grandmothers, mother-in-laws, for gift exchanges, etc.  

Better Homes & Gardens has so many cute wax warmers and a huge variety of scented wax melts.  

This little galvanized house wax warmer just screamed holidays to me, but it would be great to use all year long.  The little windows all lit up look so adorable.  






This is just a tiny peek at some of the wax melts they have...




Another great "gift for anyone" is a oil diffuser.  I love all the options they have, but this one caught my eye for the simple design and light up feature.  Just turn it on and pick your favorite color!

It can be displayed in any room and adds such a pleasant smell to the space!



If you have someone on your list who loves to cook or bake, this cookbook holder is a great gift idea.  The white and wood finish is so pretty and it looks great displayed in the kitchen.  You could personalize this gift by adding your favorite cookbook with it!

Alright, now for those special guys in your life.  I have rounded up some unique ideas that I think any guy would love to receive! 

Gifts for him....

 Gray Tufted Recliner  //  Mule Mug Set  //  Fire Pit 


Another fun idea for him, create a personalized gift basket.  This is a great gift filled with goodies for the guy that loves to play bartender and entertain friends. 




The galvanized tub was filled with yummy snacks, Mule mugs and other bar necessities to create a unique gift that will get a lot of use! The metal tub can be filled with ice and used to chill drinks when entertaining guests.  





And these items look great displayed out on a bar or bar cart!

I know my daughter loves to lounge in bed watching movies, talking on the phone to friends or reading a good book so I knew these new additions would be perfect for her room.


A sherpa back pillow, foldable wood tray and extra soft throw blanket might just make it harder for me to get her to leave her room!  Such a cozy spot to unwind after a long school day....

I don't know that I would never want to leave!




And last up, here are some last minute gift ideas!  These picks are most likely in stock at your local Walmart stores and can be ordered online and picked up at the store using their curbside pick up services!  I use the store pick up option frequently and love how much time it saves me!  Simply order online, pick the location you want to pick it up at and wait for an email saying your item is ready!! Once you receive the email, head to the store, park in the designated pick up parking spot and follow the directions in the email or on the sign in your parking spot.  It is so easy and convenient and will help alleviate some holiday stress!

And all of those items make great hostess gifts!  I love taking a platter of sweet treats with me to give to the hostess when attending a dinner party or gathering.   







And you can never go wrong with candles...





And the 3 tier serving platter is perfect for someone who loves hosting!  It is a great serving piece!




I hope these ideas help you mark some names off your list and save some money while doing so!  Happy shopping and happy holidays!
