Have you ever been drawn to a home for its laid-back, rustic, country charm? Country style is my obsession and I love being able to feature it in my home. From the soft muted colors, natural wood decor, and the straight line furniture, it's definitely my style of choice. The homes I am drawn to usually cost a fortune and are no way a realistic outcome for my budget. So what do you do? I have found ways to achieve the charm of country style without putting a huge dent in my budget.
Flea market shopping is a blast and is a great way to find the unexpected. You never know what you will find at a flea market or a thrift shop, but you are sure to find some country style treasures. But what happens when you want to find something new? Something that starts its journey in your home, will be a bombshell in your design plan, and not cost you your entire month's budget. I have come across this problem many times and I have always turned to The Lakeside Collection. I was introduced to The Lakeside Collection by my mom (thanks mom), and with a slogan “The best things in life don't have to cost a fortune,” I was instantly on board.
What is The Lakeside Collection? The Lakeside Collection is a company that travels around the world in search of great products to offer you at spectacular prices. They offer a huge selection of merchandise: from home furnishings, seasonal and holiday favorites, clothing, kid merchandise and awesome gift products. I AM ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED WITH THEIR HOME DECOR! They offer an amazing satisfaction guarantee as well. If the order you received is unacceptable in any way, just ship it back to their warehouse and they will give you a full refund! They offer a free seasonal magazine that will feature the very best values on products for that season. Here are some of the wonderful country style items you can find in their Spring 2016 issue.
Their kitchen country décor is the best! I love these little measuring cups that stack together to form a mason jar. They have a whole country mason jar collection that includes salt and pepper shakers, wall hooks, utensil holder, soap pump, and kitchen towel set. The whole set is only $42! I just ordered the measuring cup set and it was only $6.98.
Great country style doesn't stop there! They also have a fantastic bed & bath section. I LOVE their quilt sets. It's like having two quilts in one! They are reversible which allow you to completely transform your bedding just by flipping the quilt over. Who doesn't love that? I have seen quilt sets at Walmart that are twice as expensive…and they are not reversible. The 5 piece quilt set comes with the quilt, 2 shams, and 2 decorative pillows. You get all of that for $59.98!
Lets talk about great country style storage options! I love their storage solutions because they don't just limit you to kitchen storage. These awesome wire baskets would be great for my bathroom to hold my wash towels! The liners are removable and machine washable. If you like DIY you could even dye them to match any color scheme.
I saved my absolute favorite for last. If you want to add instant country style to your home check out these decorative prepasted wall coverings. You get designer style with out the designer cost. They are easy to hang and really easy to remove. It's prepasted, durable, and if you have kids you will love the fact that it's washable as well. One roll will cover 56 sq. ft. and it only costs $26.98 each. I love that you can cover all four walls or choose to use it as an eye catching accent piece.
I am all about sticking to your budget. If you are already on the hunt for great country style décor, I would highly suggest The Lakeside Collection in comparison to other expensive options. Remember, make your money work for you. Every opportunity to save allows you to spend the money you do have on future financial goals.
