My journey in fashion began over 25 years ago as a Portland-based buyer for Nordstrom. After a decade of doing this work and developing a solid grasp of market demands, I learned that you need the key pieces that really work well together and that you can wear over and over again. Read more….
Well, I’ve finally gotten my bedroom and bathroom in order after years of neglect! Over the last three months, we renovated the master bath (literally gutted it and started over), completed a closet remodel (looks and feels really good), and redecorated the master bedroom (so fun!). Throughout this process, I had been searching for pretty (and functional) items that would personalize each area so I could turn it into one big, gorgeous, cozy space. Mission accomplished 😌 These 15 items will give your home a refresh. And, I found them all at Walmart!
I often take my parents to the Walmart in my darling little hometown of McMinnville, and sometimes I end up getting more than they do! I own (or want to own) all the items below, and found that they gave my rooms the perfect little update. This is ideal when you have visitors popping in for the holidays! When I told my daughter Emily (check out Em’s picks here) I was working on a Walmart-sponsored blog post, she immediately said “mom, they’re on fire right now!” So, we scoured the website and made some great finds in addition to things I already own. Whether you’re refreshing your home, decorating for the holidays or buying gifts for loved ones, Walmart has it all. Read on to see my favorite home finds — you won’t be disappointed!
I dream about my coffee the night before I go to bed! It sounds a little ridiculous, but it's true. I can't imagine morning without my espresso maker -- it's hands
down the most popular appliance in my house!
Seagrass is another top ten house favorite. Yes, sometimes the boys in my family complain a because it's not soft and fuzzy. But let me tell you, these are SO durable -- and they look great! I have this one in my basement Instagram office.
I just ordered these glasses for a little glassware update. They're durable, and the color is really soft and pretty. Switching up your glassware when setting a table is a nice thing to do, just to mix things up a bbit!
Garden stools are useful in so many places! When the weather is warm, bring them outside. During the rest of the year, try one in your bathroom with towels, or as a small side table in your living space.
Joshua McFadden is the James Beard award-winning chef who's kale salad changed everything! It's the reason I purchased the cookbook, and the kale salad is indeed amazing. Plus, Joshua had a restaurant in Portland that I was lucky enough to try on several occasions. You'll love this book!
A little design trick: when you find a piece of furniture and you love the shape and overall design of it, paint it. It completely transforms an inexpensive piece into something that looks like it was made specifically for your home. And this white color is spot on!
