Easy Front Room Updates

This post is in partnership with Walmart. Thank you for supporting the brands & opportunities that make this blog possible! xo

Well it happened–I’m officially over winter. I’m over the cold. Over the gloomy days. Over the snow. Allllll of it. Last week was so dang cold and I’m just tired of freezing all the time, ya know? And it’s always this time of year that I start to get really antsy and cabin fever sits in hard. Anyone else?! I know spring is coming, but it’s still feels soooooo far away. Heck, we still have to get through March, which is our snowiest month here in Colorado. Anyway, I need to stop belly-aching and get on with today’s post because it’s a really fun one all about some new goodies I added to our front room. I actually picked up a few things from the brand new MoDRN collection at Walmart and I’m excited to share them with you guys today!

Walmart’s new MoDRN collection just launched a few weeks ago and I spent a good amount of time browsing through everything online. They’re offering a few different styles of decor and furniture including retro glam, Scandinavian minimal, and refined industrial, which is my favorite. I was really excited to find this pair of black throw pillows. Aren’t these awesome?! You guys know I’m obsessed with pops of black decor lately, so I just love these. The zig-zag design is really fun and I think it adds a little extra pizazz to this room. Plus they are SUPER affordable and the quality is great. (I also really love these pillows too, which are more neutral.)

The next thing I ordered was this large wall mirror. Again this was from the industrial collection and the second I spotted this I knew it would be great in our front room. The size is perfect and I love the look of the square frame and round mirror. And I’m really into that wood and black combo happening here too. It just really pops with that white shiplap. (I also found this large black clock that was my second choice to this mirror!)

It always amazes me how adding in a few new accessories can make a room feel brand new. It really doesn’t take much of an investment to totally change the look and feel of a space, which is perfect this time of year when everything is feeling a bit stale. I’m really loving that this room has more pizazz now with the pops of black and wood.

And I’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again–Walmart is really stepping up their game lately. Their online decor and furniture selection is amazing and I’m really impressed with this new MoDRN collection. The quality is great and you just can’t beat their prices. I’m even thinking about ordering more of those black throw pillows for my bedroom. Or even our living room–I think they would look great on our recliners too! And yes, I do have a throw pillow obsession but there could be worse things, right?! Right.

    Hi Sarah,

    Love that mirror but am really curious about the clock on your coffee table. I’ve been really in to clocks lately and looking for one that size/style. Where did you get it?

    Hi Sarah! I love your new mirror and pillows! I have a terrible pillow obsession as well, lol. That mirror with the black and the wood really just makes your room look awesome! Sorry there’s no sign of spring there yet. Hang in there girl! Ours has already begun thank goodness! I am Not a winter person. You’re totally right, Walmart is really stepping up their decorating game! Trying to keep up with Amazon I guess. Have a great week! 😊
