With the start of a new season comes the opportunity to refresh your home’s decor by updating your space with a few new pieces.
And although Walmart might not seem like the most obvious place to shop for home decor, the chain retailer offers so much to choose from if you’re looking to redecorate your space.
To help you narrow down your home-decor options, Insider spoke to expert Jaye Nibbs, owner of Inner Beauty Designs in Atlanta, Georgia.
Here’s what an interior designer would buy at Walmart right now.

She said she loves this modern brass mirror that’s right on-trend.
If you’re on board with the circular mirror fad that’s been all over the entryways and living rooms of Instagram bloggers, then you might love this brass-coloured, oval-shaped metal wall mirror from Drew Barrymore’s Flower Home line at Walmart.
The mirror, which measures 21-inches wide and 31-inches high, is the perfect touch for fall.
“It’s the accent of the moment at a fraction of the cost,” said Nibbs. “This round mirror brings a minimalist approach to a well-designed space.”
This dark-blue pet bed could be perfect for your four-legged friend.
This wood-frame pet bed is 30 inches wide and 15 inches high and can hold dogs up to 75 pounds.
“Pet furniture is usually ugly, but this pet bed is a rare exception,” explained Nibbs. “It’s stylish, chic, and well crafted for the design-oriented pet owner.”
The bed’s birch-veneer finish is made of eco-friendly wood and the cushion cover can be removed and cleaned as needed.
This cosy blanket to snuggle under is less than $US10.
If you’re looking to stay warm as the seasons change, check out Walmart’s Velvet Plush Throws, which retail for around $US9.
“These ultra-soft throw blankets are perfect for curling up on the couch,” said Nibbs. “And, at under $US10 a blanket, they are a perfect gift option.”
Walmart also has a chic and affordable art print that looks like it belongs in a museum.
For less than $US60, you can upgrade your bare walls with this black-and-white framed art print that matches a variety of decor styles.
“I’m always looking for ways to switch up the watercolor abstract art that I’m typically drawn to,” Nibbs told Insider. ” This piece is an intriguing deviation that compliments many design styles.”
These matte-finished 20-piece flatware sets will amp up your next dinner party.
If you love the look of high-end flatware but don’t want to fork over big bucks on utensils, you may want to try this set from Walmart.
“A classic silhouette with cleans lines works great for an everyday set of flatware, but a special set of striking rose gold or matte black will be the perfect sprinkle of surprise for dinner guests,” she told Insider.
The 20-piece set that Nibbs picked out is available in three finishes including black, gold, and rose gold.
You can score a neutral-coloured rug for your living room or bedroom.
Swapping out rugs for each season can get expensive, but you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of this neutral-coloured rug all year long.
“I love this robust triangle pattern because it adds a bold statement without appearing overbearing or busy,” Nibbs said.
The hand-tufted rug comes in three different sizes for a variety of spaces.
This minimal dove-grey duvet cover has a 4.5-star rating.
Upgrading your bed before the cold weather arrives for good is never a bad idea. For this purpose, Nibbs selected this luxe duvet cover that can fit a twin, full/queen, or king mattress.
“Elegant piping detail marries a casual linen weave that gets better with time. This is a classic duvet that will never go out of style,” Nibbs told Insider.
These industrial bookshelves can hold all of your favourite novels and trinkets.
If you’re in need of more storage to show off your favourite knick-knacks, books, photos, and other fun gizmos, Nibbs said she suggests using these multi-functional shelves from Walmart.
“This industrial bookshelf is great for adding extra storage in your home,” recommended Nibbs. “Buy two of them to flank a fireplace to create a strong anchor and to add balance to your space.”
Each piece has a total of five shelves for you to mix and match your most-prized possessions in a highly stylish fashion.
This trendy new light fixture will be a statement piece in your home.
Swapping out your light fixture is a great way to make an old space feel new again.
To do this, Nibbs said she recommends this six-light chandelier from Walmart. The light features clear glass globe shades for a mid-century feel.
“This contemporary chandelier is sure to be a focal point mounted above a dining table,” Nibbs told Insider. “The light fixture pairs black and brass finishes to combines two vintage motifs in the freshest of ways.”
However, this fixture does not come with light bulbs, so make sure to add a pack to your cart.
