Great Finds For Spring!

As a stager, I am always looking for cost-effective ways to make a stylish but neutral impact in a house. There are usually a few places that I automatically look and this week they do not disappoint. I wanted to highlight a few pieces that could make a huge impact on a home with a small impact on your budget.

First up is Target. They have a great Dwell line called "Dwell Studio". It is my go-to for fashion forward prints and cheery pieces. This Spring is full of simple floral and bird sillouets, tile prints, and muted colors mixed with a pop of bright! This is a placemat that would instantly update a table! 2 for $10.

5x8 Area rug for $125!!! What a steal! And the silloutes are perfect for this season. Slip this in front of your couch and you have an instant update!

This is one of my all-time favorite Target finds. It has been in my online shopping cart for close to a month (does anyone else ever fill up their cart and just leave it without hitting the purchase button?). I can't believe is has survived that long without selling out. It is reversible and is only $5!! Yes, you read that correctly. I might have to hit purchase today before the rest of you snatch up the last one!!

Alright, on to my second spot. I try to avoid Wal-Mart at all costs, see HERE for some examples of why. But shopping online is a great alternative. They have a HomeTrends line that is actually stylish and, of course, inexpensive. This is sucha pretty rug and the price is pretty unbelievable. I think it's out of stock at the moment, but probably not for long.

This pillow is perfect for Spring! And $13!

Another $13 Throw pillow! That's hard to beat!!

Finally, I am loving this lamp. And for only $25, I love it even more. It has a much more expensive look. And they also have some great updated lamp shades for only $10 a pop!

When looking for fast, easy updates to a space, these are definitely a leap in the right direction! Happy shopping!!!


  1. Lauren, you must have excellent taste b/c I just recently purchased the white Wal-Mart pillow you mentioned for our guest bedroom:) Love the bargain suggestions! ~Monica

  2. FYI: I was at the Wal-Mart off of Walnut Grove this past weekend & saw the bronze lamp for $15 (regular price, not even on sale). The matching shades were still $10:) ~Monica

  3. Wow! I can't believe it is cheaper in the store! I might have to pick one up :) Thanks for the info!
