Between my bachelorette in Cabo San Lucas and my honeymoon in Europe, it’s safe to say the first half of my year was full of travel. But since I don’t have any big getaways on the books for the rest of the year (for now), I’m looking for ways to bring my love of travel and exploring destinations to my L.A. apartment. Luckily for me, Who What Wear Associate Fashion Director Michaela Bushkin put me onto Walmart’s fall home lookbook, which is perfect for cultivating a globally inspired ambience in your living room (or bathroom, kitchen, bedroom—there are no limits here). This stylish curation of home finds has everything from artisan-style rugs to rattan chairs to textured blankets, so keep scrolling to see the pieces Michaela’s eyeing to make her space feel like a unique fall retreat.
“My favorite living rooms always feature a Moroccan rug (or any rug with a geometric pattern, really). They make such a statement and breathe an uplifting energy into the space. To really lean into the Marrakesh influence, the rest of the room should feature some fun pops of color and other desert-inspired accents like aloe or snake plants.” — Michaela Bushkin, associate fashion director
“I love a neutral bedroom with a relaxing, zen vibe reminiscent of a chic hotel in a warm-weather destination like Tulum. I’ve actually never been there, but I’ve seen photos, okay? I like to lean into texture to keep the subdued palette interesting. Think chunky throws, linen bedding, woven rugs, and plenty of rattan accessories. (This lamp is everything.)” — Bushkin
“I like a bathroom to be sleek, modern, and generally as minimalistic as possible—the kind you see in a lot of in big cities like London or New York. (I’m a city girl at heart!) As long as I have some counter space to do my makeup, I’m happy, but a few cute accent pieces always add to a chic bathroom aesthetic.” — Bushkin
“The kitchen and dining room are so important to me because I love to cook and host my friends for dinner parties, wine nights, and brunches. Maybe I spent too much time daydreaming about a trip to Italy or France this summer, but I love the look of a European bistro. They’re pretty minimalistic, which gives off a casual, inviting feel that makes you want to gather around the table for good conversation and better food. That’s the look I’m going for in my dining room with these cool bistro chairs, sleek gold silverware, colorful dishware, linen napkins, and wildflowers as a table centerpiece.” — Bushkin
