Recently I was invited to participate in Better Homes & Gardens Room Refresh Challenge. The challenge was to see how different I could change up my living room spending only $250.00 on BHG accessories from Walmart. I was really hesitant to participate. My biggest question was, “Could Walmart be stylish?” It’s not the first place I would think to shop for home decor. However, I was surprised…
Before the challenge this is how my home looked. In my Arizona home I went wild with bold patterns and colors but I went for a much more muted palette in my Utah home. I don’t know why but I’ve been a little color shy. Everything has been a bit on the minimal side.
Introducing color and pattern!
Same sofas, ottoman, curtains and rug…just changed the layout of the room and layered with some accessories.
I added a mix of throw pillows and layered on top my existing rug this much more traditional rug with a punch of color.
I’m really liking the mix of modern and traditional elements.
I picked up this new lamp and shade….
and more pillows with lots of contrasting designs and patterns.
On this other side of the room I simply brought some of my existing furniture and accessories from different parts of my house. You may remember this art piece from my AZ master bedroom which I made from old floor boards. I also picked up this BHG leaning mirror from Walmart and put a stool in front of it.
I’m really thrilled about my new end tables. I picked up the pair for $10.00 each at a garage sale. They’re currently a bit too traditional for my taste so I’m gearing up to paint them and punchy bold color.
This wall has gone from white to stenciled and now black and am loving the new change.
I’ve had this fan for ages. It’s not BHG but it is from Walmart. I love that it looks vintage but isn’t.
These art pieces are also from Walmart (but not BHG). You can never go wrong with black and white photography.
The mood of room feels really good, not that it didn’t before. There is a coziness and warmth that the color and pattern have brought in that I’m really diggin’ for now. This challenge pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to experiment with accessories that I normally wouldn’t have gravitated to. Next time you’re at Walmart, you should venture to the home decor side and check it out all the new Better Homes and Gardens furniture and accessories .
