5 Easy Ways To Decorate Your Space for Summer with Flower Home!

{this post is sponsored by Wal-Mart but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!}

Hey hey friends! Well this week just flew by super fast and now we leave for vacation in less than 24 hours and I haven't even packed so basically I'm in full panic mode as per usual.

However, while we've already started our next project, I wanted to share a space in our new living room with you guys! To say I'm obsessed would be a bit of an under-statement. 

If you've been following me for the past year or so, you've probably noticed I've strayed away a bit from in your face farmhouse style, which leaves me with quite the predicament honestly, since this blog is called The Glam Farmhouse and all, however, I knew it was time for a change. 

My living room hasn't made my happy now for quite a bit, I hated the dark flooring, our Ikea Ektorp, while it's been good to us, was falling apart and I was really tired of everything looking exactly the same. I needed to bring life back into this space again. I'm a huge believer that style evolves, we grow, we change, and we start to like different things. This isn't bad! Change is a good thing, and I'm learning now after completing (well, almost..) this room. For the first time in a long time it makes me smile again. It makes me happy and brings peace to my soul. A room should do that, your home should do that. Your home should totally be a reflection of YOU, and not everyone else. 

So while I'm still stuck at what my "style" is right now, I can tell you that I carefully selected everything in this room with the vibes it gave me, each and every thing makes me insanely happy. 

Would you believe me if I told you the one thing that inspired this whole room makeover was at Wal-Mart!? I seriously am dying over all of their collaborations lately, but this one, this one might just be my favorite! Wal-Mart is quickly becoming my go to lately as I've snagged so many cute decor items and clothing items from there recently. {this peach ottoman} is what dreams are made of honestly, so gorgeous and full of life! 

Just like the new home decor items from Drew Barrymore's new FLOWER home collection at Wal-Mart! Each piece is so beautiful and unique, and I've been loving adding things from the line to our casa! 
Today, I wanted to share a few tips for updating ANY space for the upcoming seasons! 

1. Swap out heavy throws for lighter ones in fun colors! 
This is one of my favorite things to do! I absolutely love this throw in this gorgeous gold color, that would also work for Fall but also year round. It's lighter than a wool throw but still soft and cozy to snuggle up in without feeling "heavy". 



2.Switch out pillows and opt for floral prints and fun pops of color!
It's no secret I'm a throw pillow junkie! I absolutely love these floral print throw pillows and this jade green velvet with pink tassels is so fun. Floral print is so fun for Spring and Summer and something I always love to use in my decor this time of year. 



3.Add a fun accent color-
You can do this with anything you wish but in this case I opted for this fun peach colored ottoman for Summer. It's so fun and the fabric is light and lovely. You can also do this with things like candles, and throw blankets!

4.Change your wall art-

I love my old window panes and I don't think I'll ever get rid of them, probably because they actually came from this house when we first bought it! They're so easy to layer and switch up for the seasons, you can opt for a fun wreath but lately I've really been loving art and signs, I'm obsessed with this {palm leaf print} for Summer! 

5. Add Greenery-
This is by far one of my favorite things to do, real or faux, it doesn't matter. If you're wondering what a space is missing, add a plant or some florals and 99% of the time it will bring a space to life!

6. Fresh lighting-
LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING. Seriously. I'm crushing so hard on this fun lamp from Drew's line! The rattan is so fun for the upcoming warmer months but would also work for well beyond them too! 

So that's it! You DON'T have to spend a ton of money to give your space new life, lots of times you can start small, curtains, rugs, whatever, to make a space feel new again! 



When "designing" this space I knew I wanted to keep my furniture neutral so I could easily switch out pillows and throws for the season. 

This makeover is proof that creating a comfortable, styling and IG WORTHY space doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, Wal-Mart has more than just the functional stuff, you can check out all the gorgeous items for you home on the site, stuff that fits your style AND your budget! The value is amazing. Everything is such high quality and I am beyond in love!

    Wal-Mart Swimsuit Try On!

    {this post is sponsored by Wal-Mart, as alway, all opinions and thoughts are my own and I can't thank you all enough for supporting me}

    Hey babes! Can ya'll even freaking BELIEVE that it's mid May already? I'm so freaking excited but also panicking just a bit because I've been throwin' back chicken nuggets like it's my job and I was reminded when I attempted to try on some bathing suits recently. Like, did brands forget to add half the bathing suit orrr??? So in my quest for cute and affordable swimwear I went to the last place I thought I would ever find a swimsuit that I loved, and that I felt was comfortable. 

    Until I went to FREAKING Wal-Mart YOU GUYS. I can't even believe how obsessed I've been with them lately. SO AFFORDABLE and so cute! They are knocking it out of the park in all areas. Clothes, decor, swimsuits, you name it. Especially in the fashion department. Have ya'll taken a peek lately? 

    Today I'm sharing a few thing you NEED in your summer wardrobe from THE WALMART asap. Walmart finds tend to sell out quickly online, so if you see something you love-snag it ASAP. Everyone is catching on to to the awesome finds! 

    For reference- I am a 36c, 128 lbs, and I'm 5'2. I find that information to be super helpful when I'm shopping clothes online!

    First up is this suuuuper cute floral print yellow swimsuit I can't even freaking believe how much I love this one. 

    SO cute, FULL booty coverage and nice support for the girls. Minimal padding and has a tie in the back! ;) I do suggest sticking to your normal size in this- I tend to size up in swimsuits but NOT these, so it's really nice that the things are true to size. I got a Small in the bottoms and a M in the top. Both fit perfect!

    This kimono is super versatile because it can also be worn with denim shorts, and a cute tank! I love pieces that can be worn multiple ways and this is totally one of them. I'm also linking a few of my faves below! 

    This hat is also from Wal-Mart and only 9 FREAKING DOLLARS YOU GUYS.
     I cannot.



    Next up I snagged this cute floral print swimsuit top in the same style because it's so cute! This one has some cute lace detailing that is freaking adorable and also True to Size! 

    These cute sandals are sooo pretty and also from Wal-Mart but online only!

    I've had SO MANY REQUESTS to share shorts in a midi style or for taller girls, I've yet to find a pair that are cute and comfortable but these are IT you guys! Seriously. SO CUTE and comfortable. 

    They have some stretch and I got a size 4 in them- they run big so keep that in mind. I suggest sizing down! They come in tons of colors and are super affordable.
    You can check them out here along with all the different colors and they're under $14 bucks y'all. like freaking stop it right now.  

    I'm snagging so many cute Walmart tops lately like, this pink one with lace detail on the sleeves. Super comfy! They also have cute basic tanks and tees that actually hold up in the wash. I'm super impressed! 

    I'm also dying over all the cute tote bags and beach bags they have there lately. Anyone else have a beach bag obsession or just me?! It's a problem. 

    Linking everything from today's post below for you to shop! Everything is in stock but probably won't be for long! 




    So I've gotta know! Have you been shopping or checking out Wal-Mart lately? I highly suggest you pop in and check out all the goodies! SO MANY cute things right now! Can't wait to hear what you think of my finds today! Drop a comment below or come say "hey" on Instagram! I love love love to hear from you guys!
