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

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!

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.
