At Home Stores Shopping Challenge: Giving My Office a Makeover for Back to School!

I am excited to have partnered with At Home Stores to bring you this post! I received a $100 gift card to give my office area a makeover for back to school in addition to compensation. Come shop with me in my #AtHomeStores shopping video and check out the results of my back to school #CollegeMoveIn challenge!

At Home Store in Utica, MI
This was my first time shopping in the At Home store in my area - they have a large retail space off of M-59 in northeast metro Detroit - and I was excited to see what I would find in store. When we entered I noticed right away that they had displays of similar toned items grouped together to give you inspiration, which I loved, and they also had a helpful take away map area to keep you guided through the store. This came in handy!

We set off with back to school in mind and I wanted to find some great items to refresh my office space! My office also doubles as a filming space for YouTube videos, and makes a great reading nook space as well! I hope this give you some inspiration for refreshing your own office space, or perhaps a great sitting area in a dorm or college apartment!

I was also excited to see that they were starting to place Fall and holiday decor, but was determined to stay focused! (Those items would have to wait for a future shopping trip!) I did love the "Seas and Greetings" section in the holiday section though, and just had to sneak that in to share!

SEAS and Greetings to you!

We found tons of great organization containers, bins, and clear acrylic drawer systems. The clear acrylic drawers are some of my favorite organizational elements, because they are so easy to use and see everything that you've placed inside. We use these in our house for everything from hair ties to washi tape, and they just work great!

Great organization elements!

Throughout the store, I was particularly enamored with the great small table selection! Everywhere I went, there were adorable tables of all shapes, sizes, and colors - and this really drove my inspiration for how to makeover my office! I found about 3 in particular that I loved, but eventually narrowed it down to a great silver and chevron style table that I thought would work PERFECTLY in my office! It only had legs on one side, so could easily be pushed up to a chair to hold a book, my phone, and more!

Tables galore!

They also had a fantastic pillow selection and I saw a ton of great styles I could use throughout my home. When I went down the aisle with predominantly pink and purple pillows, I was particularly struck by a lilac colored pillow with the phrase "inspire" on it... This really stood out to me and immediately went in the cart! A short while later down the aisle I found some great purple ombre pillows that I thought complimented the look and I was set - pillows it was!!

To finish off the space (and my gift card!) - I was drawn to a great selection of faux topiary pieces in all spaces and sizes. I picked a rounded style that I thought would go great in my room and I loved that it had a bit of a purple accent in the plants to tie everything together!

This was my finished office space, given a makeover to Inspire!
