Boho Chic Study Space: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

As a BHG Stylemaker, I am honored to work with this amazing brand sharing their stylish and affordable line of home products from 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. 

School is back in session and I know for most families that looks a lot different than years past.  We started with virtual for the first 3 weeks, then we will go in person after that...or at least that is the plan for now.  With the future so uncertain, we decided it was a great time to create a quiet and calm study space for my daughter to use.  We found everything we needed from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart!  I love their products because they are so affordable and the quality is so great!

We are still waiting on her new chair to arrive, but she loves the way it turned out!  It was fun creating this space since "boho desert vibes" is a little out of my usual design taste.  Her request was "nothing with the paint chipping off"..."something that fits my aesthetic"...whatever that means! Ha, as you can see by her old desk chair, she and I have a little different styles!  We both can agree, that this area turned out adorable!

Since we wanted to utilize this little nook area, I wanted something that combined a desk, storage and style. I love the leaning desk and shelf we found from the Better Homes & Gardens line.  It offers all of those things, but also keeps the area open and airy.  Also, the great thing about these pieces are they are sold separately so you can customize your design to fit your space!

The mixed colors, sleek lines and open shelving fit the look she was going  for...if you have a tween or teen, you know how picky they can be but she loves this new space!  

We wanted to keep the desk surface clutter free, but we did add a trendy, marble base desk lamp for added light and a cute ceramic (toothbrush) holder to keep pencils and pens handy!

To style the shelves, we chose items that could pull double duty as storage and décor.  The stackable canisters keep markers and crayons corralled and the adorable llama planter holds her decorative, washi tape collection.

On the other side, we used a divided basket to hold more art supplies.  My daughter spends most of her free time creating, coloring, painting and crafting.  This basket keeps all her goodies all nice and organized.

While out shopping, my daughter and I took a stroll down the candle aisle and found the Better Homes & Gardens aromatherapy candle line.  These smell so good and the scents are so calming.  She decided we "needed" to grab one since it matched the décor so well.  Hoping this candle helps calm us from the stress of virtual learning!

To keep all her folders, binders, workbook and spirals accessible, but hidden, we used this cute, fabric storage box.  The fun, metallic pattern fit her "aesthetic", as she says, and it serves the purpose well!

Since she follows a regular school schedule, she has a few minutes between classes, so we grabbed some cozy pillows where she can cozy up for a quick break! 

This project was so much fun to complete!  I love doing projects that are different than my typical style.  It is also fun to work with my daughter to create a space she loves!  While we wait to see what the rest of the school year holds, I love that she has a cute, calm and clean space to start her 7th grade year in!
