Safavieh Furniture At Target

I am seriously considering changing the name of the blog to Totally Target or I Heart Target!  But, what do you know, Target has done it again!  It is now carrying a line of Safavieh furniture.  If you don’t know, Safavieh is a high-end furniture line based out of New York.  They offer a wide range of furniture and accessories for all rooms in the home.

Now, Target is carrying their furniture online (sorry it is not available in store-boo!)

Seriously, how amazing is this end table and it is only $150.00??

You can buy this elegant and well made furniture at several different places, but Target has a few pieces that are Target exclusives.  You need to check out the entire line, but here are my favorites that are available only at Target.  They are so stylish and sooo reasonably priced for quality furniture!

Chair / Coffee Table / Side Table / Coffee Table  /Dresser / End Table / Club Chair / Console

All of these beauties are on sale now during Target’s big home sale.  You have to go check it out.  Even some of the pieces that are sold at places other than Target can be found cheaper because of the sale.  And if you have a Red Card you can save 5% and get free shipping!!

Happy shopping!

 

The Best Console Tables

The question I get asked more than any other is about console tables.  People love them but have a hard time deciding which style to choose.  Personally, because console tables usually stand alone, I think they present an opportunity to stray away from your normal design style.  For example, if your style tends to be more traditional, you can make your space more eclectic by incorporating a modern console.

I also think that it is best to choose a style that is more streamlined and simple, rather than ornate. That way you can experiment with color and how you style your table.  For instance, the mirror below works well because the console table is simple.  It would be too overwhelming for the eye with a really ornate table and mirror.

Console tables are perfect to fill a large wall space, in an entryway, or even behind a sofa.

Here are some of my favorites including one for every budget!

Console tables are easy to find at antique stores and thrift stores and can be made over so easily! Stay tuned as I plan to reveal a DIY project on this topic!

Happy Easter!

H&M Spring Line: Affordable Pops of Color

I am so digging H&M’s home line right now.  Just like their clothing line, it is fun, fresh and best of all affordable!

I am particularly in love with their PILLOWS.  I only featured two below, but there are plenty more amazing options online at such affordable prices!! Howe cute is the one with the pom poms?  This would look so adorable in my daughter’s room.  I have even been thinking of adding some pom pom fringe to her existing curtains!

Have you purchased anything from H&M’s home line?  If so, how was the quality? You can see my review when the home line debuted here.

Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter!

Spring Accents On The Bar Cart

I absolutely love my Target wood and brass bar cart.  However, its brass and wood tones make it a bit on the dark side.  For fall and winter, it is perfect, but for Spring I wanted to liven it up a bit!

Cue in some flowers, fresh fruit and brightly colored straws and we are good to go!

Here is what it looks like now!

Bar Cart 1

 

Bar Cart 3

 

Bar Cart 5

I found these little guys at a thrift store for only $5.  Gotta love the hunt!  I added some gold spray paint and they are like new.

Bar Cart 4

These pink carnations were only $3 and they have lasted forever.  They are such an inexpensive flower to use in small or large groupings.  Move over roses!

Bar Cart 7

 

Bar Cart 6

 

Bar Cart 2

You can follow my obsession with this bar cart here, here and here.  You can see “her” all dolled up for Christmas here.

Are you a fan of the bar cart?  If so, do you give it a gender like I do? Haha!  I feel like it is such a staple and can fit in any room with any decor.

Indigo Accents

Everywhere I turn, I keep seeing the most rich hues of indigo blue.  From high-end retailers like Horchow to stores like Target, this trend is everywhere. It is one of the oldest methods for dying fabrics and has stood the test of time.  It works classically with white, but can also be mixed with other colors like pink or chartreuse.

Indigo

I am also really loving the indigo tie dye prints that are out there.  They are so relaxed and summery!  They have the power to transport me to an island in the Bahamas.  Maybe someday!  Here are some of my favorite picks on this trend.

What do you think?  It it a color you would use in the spring or summer?  If you had your own private island??

Come On Over For Easter Brunch!!

I am actually really excited for Easter this year.  My two girls are super giddy about it and that makes it even more fun.  Oh, to be a child again!!  I love entertaining and this table I set up for an Easter brunch was simple, but turned out really elegant.  I used mostly things I already owned, which makes it even better.  So, come on in and see how we roll for Easter . . .

The flowers are ranunculus, tulips, hyacinths, ornamental kale and reindeer moss.  You can’t have an Easter table without tulips, right?

The plates are a combination of basic white plates from Pottery Barn and fancy china from Vera Wang and Wedgwood.

I found these little moss-covered baskets at World Market for only $2.99.  How cute are they?  The napkins are just inexpensive paper napkins I found at Tuesday Morning.

This ornamental kale was very inexpensive, very pretty and lasted FOREVER!

Now, I just have to cook some amazing food to eat!  What are your plans for Easter?   Do you entertain or host?

Party Time: Oh Joy For Target

Oh Boy am I excited about the Oh Joy collection at Target!  Joy Cho, the creative genius behind the lifestyle blog Oh Joy has collaborated with Target on a line of party items.  I absolutely adore her style and think this collection would be so perfect for a summer party, a little girls birthday party, or even a baby shower.

Oh Joy Target 3

This collection is available for a limited time only, so I would jump on it if you have any fun parties to plan this year.  My daughter’s birthday is in July and I can’t wait to snatch up some of these items for her party!

Here are some of my favorite picks from her collection:

What do you think?  Not your average party decor, right?  There are even patterned garbage bags for the hostess who thinks of everything!

Easter Eggs Part Deux

I posted here about some DIY Ombre Easter Eggs I made.  After making entirely too many of them, I decided to try something different with about half of them.  Using simple materials I had on hand, I created these paper mache type eggs.

Easter Eggs 2

 

Here is what you will need:

IMG_5084

 

  • Patterned paper napkins of your choice.
  • Scissors
  • Sponge or paint brush
  • Mode Podge
  • Eggs

STEP 1:  Separate the napkin layers.  Keep the top patterned layer and discard the remainder.  Cut shapes from the top layer.

STEP 2:  Brush Mod Podge onto the egg then apply a cutout from the napkin.  After letting it dry, paint another layer of Mod Podge on top to seal.  I found you really had to take your time and use your fingers to smooth out the paper or else you would end up with a wrinkled effect.

There are so many beautiful napkin patterns out there these days, so the possibilities are endless.  It literally took me about 10 minutes to create these beauties!

What about you?  How do you decorate your eggs?  Do you go for a PAAS kit or do you try something more untraditional?

Stay tuned . . . I may have another decorating idea coming soon.  I just can’t get enough!

Spring Home Tour

Spring is in the air!!  Actually, this week has felt more like winter in Northern California, but a mere technicality!  I don’t decorate per se for Spring, but I do love to add a few touches here and there.  This usually involves me buying more flowers than I can carry!  Here are some touches of Spring from around our home:
