It’s easy to get caught up in Instagram’s home decor eye candy, but the ever-changing revolving door of pillows, vases, and seasonal items can pack a punch to the wallet. I’ve been there and could not keep up with the Jones’…nor did I want to. That my friend is why I signed on to be a Walmart Brand Ambassador. They challenged me for the next few months, to choose my top picks. Helping you shop by style and by room…and srsly, with treasures like this lamp for ONLY $9…challenge accepted!
Today I’m channeling their Summer By The Lake home decor, so before summer comes to a close, let’s squeak in some beachy vibes. Set the mood and dive in. For me, lake living means casual, not fussy, and cozy. A few years back, I visited Camp Wandewega and decided right then and there I would own a little cabin by the water someday…fingers crossed. A fluffy knit blanket for a cool breezy evening on the porch (screened of course cuz this gal does not like mosquitoes). Or sitting by a campfire, a s’more in each hand. A little rustic and a whole lot laid back.
When I think lake living, I don’t necessarily think true nautical home decor. Rather, I lean more towards texture and a neutral (surprise) color palette. Natural woods, sand, and bluebird skies. I also loves me a nautical stripe, but more subdued than the true white and navy.
To take this challenge a step further, I picked out a few things for the guest room to see how they mixed in with the eclectic vibe and change the mood. Loving it! It’s softer and cozier, right?!?!? I also kept that black glam tray on the dresser from this post.
Nothing says cozy like some ticking stripe style bedsheets (which I’ve been searching for) and a cable knit pillow. I also love how the rope mirror brings in the essence of a boat and anchor without being overly literal.
