When it comes to home décor, where do you get your inspiration? At one “inspired home” in Atlanta, the interior design comes from the pages of top magazines, with furniture and accessories demonstrating today’s best thinking in home design trends.
One of America’s top interior designers, Patricia Crowl, decorated each room of the home with products exclusively available at Wal-Mart nationwide.
“We wanted to take the design expertise of each magazine and show consumers how to apply it to their own homes,” she says. “The house illustrates how to get the look of luxury at an affordable price.”
The show house also offers the latest new trends in home décor this season:
• How to use everyday items in unusual ways: For example, placing mirrors on a dining room table for ambiance and flair, and using outdoor products such as a garden urn and patio cushions as décor for the living room.
• Using a unified color scheme: The use of a single color palette with accent colors sets the tone for a calm room without being boring. This also makes a seamless transition from one room to the next.
• The technique of layering makes a warm and cozy atmosphere without spending a fortune: This can be achieved with rich and colorful throws, pillows, cushions and accessories.
Committed to bringing its customers affordable quality and stylish, contemporary casual merchandise, Wal-Mart has the products to help many homeowners achieve luxury style at a reasonable price. By teaming up with the nation’s top consumer magazines to showcase how consumers can create new design ideas in their own home, the company has created a show house that is beautiful yet practical, stylish yet affordable.
The magazines that inspired the show house and the rooms featured include:
• Better Homes and Gardens, great room and kitchen;
• Country Home, living room and dining room;
• Traditional Home, outdoor entertaining area;
• Child, girl’s and boy’s bedrooms;
• Parents, playroom;
• Decorating magazine, a special interest publication from Better Homes and Gardens, master suite.
