5 Simple Ways To Spruce Up Your Home With Walmart, Colin and Justin
With spring just around the corner, we all look forward to bringing ourselves out of long hibernation. And what better way to tune into spring than to redecorate our homes, especially if it doesn’t cost a fortune? Whether you’re hunting for a new set of furniture or trendy decor to spruce up your apartment, Walmart has got you covered. One of the country’s most loved and affordable brands offers everything you need in one simple shopping trip, in-store or online.
Even if you’re not ready to spend money on big-ticket items, you can still freshen up your place by simply adding such accents as picture frames, cushions, vases and artworks for a top-end vibe (that definitely won’t break the bank.) This spring have your eye on gold accents, tribal motifs, millennial pinks and hints of rose gold or copper, which are some of the hottest home decor trends of the season. Spring 2018 trends also include metals and woven baskets that are not just extremely Instagrammable, but also practical and can act as storage. All of these and more you can find at Walmart for a fraction of the price.
To make the process of redecorating your apartment easier, we’ve gathered some tips and tricks from interior designers, lifestyle gurus and style commentators Colin and Justin. So grab a pen (or your smartphone) and take some notes!
1. Breath of Fresh Air: Bring life to your space with plants, such as trendy succulents that will also purify the air you breathe. Showcase the plants in natural woven baskets or ceramic hanging pots like the one below from Walmart, just $10.97, for an understated look. Another option is to place a series of three in different sized vases or jars with pebbles decorating the surface of the pot, as a living accessory corner.2. Woven baskets: Woven baskets stay on-trend for 2018, but the best thing is that they also serve as additional storage to keep your life necessities organized and your place clean. They’re also great for displaying plants and hiding their plastic planters. 3. Grouping accessories: One of the smart ways to showcase accessories is to put them in groups of threes or fives. According to experts, odd numbers, look best. Tip: for best effect, group items that vary in height from tall and medium through small. A good example of this is a cluster of lanterns (like the one below from Walmart, $21.97) next to a patio set, or three potted plants of varying heights grouped in threes on a patio. Experiment with various items until your look comes together.4. At-Home Art Installation: Create an air of exclusivity by popping an art object under an upturned vase to create a cloche, and group different sizes to establish a dramatic picture-scape. Check out budget-friendly options (golden giraffe from Walmart$21.97) to create a unique and luxurious-looking display.5. Monochrome tribal: A key trend for 2018, bold black and white print fabrics are sure to make a huge style statement wherever employed. To make them really ‘pop’, add a splash of colour via a jauntily toned throw pillow or team with timber details, woven baskets and wall plates like the one below from Walmart, $19.97, to add dreamy, natural softness.
