Refreshing My Bedroom: Affordable Finds

With my move to Santa Barbara right around the corner I’ve been inspired by the seaside and all the textures and tones that come with it. I plan on keeping most of my bedroom furniture for the new house but I wanted to refresh my bedroom accessories for our next destination. I ordered a few items that I am so excited to share with you. (Plus, I hadn’t switched this room up besides bedding in about a year or so.. it was time!)

Bedroom Decor Refresh Affordable Rug Lamp Styled Room

Walmart Home has so many on trend affordable pieces right now – tons of cute Cottage Core inspired items as well. Many of you know how much I love Walmart for cute fashion and home decor styles, and their Spring to Summer look is perfection!

I found this adorable jute rug at Walmart. I was so impressed when it showed up. I love the neutral tones and texture it adds to the room. The color perfectly matches the linen in my bed frame and the subtle shifts in color will hide dirt between cleanings. Jute is rarely so soft, but this rug feels great underfoot too. My favorite part is the braided trim, it adds a little feminine touch that I haven’t seen on others like it. I’m so happy with this purchase, this rug transformed the look of my bedroom in the exact way I envisioned.

Gold and Marble Lamp Nightstand

I also switched out my existing lamps with this marble and gold pair from Walmart. You’ll find this combination throughout my home, I love the way the bright gold warms up the cold stone. I really wanted to find lamps that provided lots of light but didn’t have a wide base that would take up too much space on the nightstand. These are the perfect size and aesthetic for this refresh. Plus, they are under $70 each! LOVE the price. They look like real marble, which is important to me!

  1. Hi Kristy. Good luck in your new home. I wish you much happinesses!!! Where did you purchase your bed. I absolutely love it and I also just moved into a new home and it would be perfect for my bedroom.

  2. It looks great Kristy. I love all the items you posted. I always think that accessories with a touch of gold is such a smart and timeless look. The house you are in at the present time is so beautiful. I would think it will be hard to find one as perfect! I love, love, love your Maggie. We lost our cavalier, Charlie Boy, and we so miss him. He was 15 years old. I love all of your posts and your Daughter’s. You all are such a precious family! Can’t wait to see your move.

  3. Kristy, your bedroom is so beautiful! After discovering you months ago on Instagram I have fallen in love with your style. I am inspired to lighten up my own home but I can’t do it all at once. I love your new lamps but my upholstered headboard/footboard is taller than yours and I think the lamps would be too short. Any advice?

    1. Hi Betty!
      A pair of matching standing lamps could add drama to your room or even adding height with a few coffee table books like Kristy did :)

  4. I love it! And I love the affordable prices. The lamps look very high end. I’ve been looking for a rug for my living room and you mentioned the color which will match my couch. Keep doing all you do. You’re an amazing lady!

  5. I really like your white bedding but did not see a source link. Would you share where I can purchase? Thanks.

  6. Hi Kristy,
    I love your bedroom refresh. Could you share where you purchased the white nightstands and linen bed?
    Can’t wait to see pics of your new SB home too.

  7. Hi! I love your blog and your beautiful home! I’m updating my bedroom and was wondering about what dresser you have for you and Jeff?
