Sitting Area Refresh: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens 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 July project with you today!

Greetings!!  I am finally back from an amazing trip to Paris and London!  I fell in love with both cities for different reasons, but I have to say I really loved Paris for the gorgeous architecture displayed on and inside the beautiful old buildings! We stayed in the most charming apartment that has me wanting to recreate the look of it here in McKinney, TX.  Although my budget won't allow that, I did leave feeling inspired and excited to update some spots in my home.  

Months ago, I sold a lot of things in my home office/living room because I was ready for a new look.  It stayed bare for months while I tried to narrow down the perfect pieces but I  couldn't come up with much.  After seeing some of the interiors of Parisian apartments,  I found the look and feel I wanted. After purchasing a couch, it was time to add the finishing touches. My goal was for the space to feel "collected" and full of things I love.  No trends, no definite style...just things that bring a smile to my face.  I included some of my vintage finds because I genuinely love those items.  Mixing the old with the new keeps things interesting! Today I am excited to reveal what I have done so far.  I still need a few more things to complete this space, but so far I am loving it!  Now when I walk into this space, I cannot help but smile.  It just feels like me!


This space is so welcoming, cozy and calm now, but I also feel like the details make the space interesting and unique.

A lot of the items I added came from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart.  They introduced several new pieces recently and some of those seemed to be made for my space!  Their affordable options make decorating on a budget doable!  Take a look at what I fell in love with...

One of the first things I hunted for was a floor lamp.  I love using accent lighting to create a peaceful ambiance.  This lamp was perfect with the modern design and pretty brass finish.

Love the glow!

Up next was to find a rug to anchor the area.  Since this is an odd shaped room and sort of divided into two different spaces, I wanted to define this little sitting area.  This heavy texture, natural fiber rug was the perfect fit.  The subtle design adds so much to the area without being overbearing.

The subtle striped design is perfect in here!

On the couch, I added a super soft throw blanket.  The fun pattern adds a whimsical touch!  Every room needs animal print, right?

Now for my favorite part...bring on the throw pillows!  They are easiest and most cost affordable way to spruce up a room.  These new designs brought in pattern, soft color and texture to my all white sofa!  I am thrilled with these new arrivals!  Make sure to check out their collection of pillows if yours need a refresh.

Hello, texture....

And let me introduce you to my favorite...

I have seen similar designs for triple the price....and this one comes in other colors!  After receiving this one, I decided I needed one more so it's on its way to me now!

All pillows are priced under $20 and the quality is amazing!
