Target Love

I stopped into Target last week.  Along with the Christmas decorations (WAY too early in my opinion) they had some great new accessories.  I thought I would share them with you along with some ideas about how to incorporate them into a room.

The two pillows above could be mixed with neutrals to create a sophisticated look like the one pictured below.  Using purple with tan keeps it from feeling too much like grape bubblegum.

The harvest tones of the pillow and tray above would look great in a room like this one.  This time of year I am naturally drawn to these beautiful autumnal colors.  One of those lacquered trays might find a spot in my living room, I believe they have them in 4 or 5 colors.

Trunks and suitcases are really popular to use as unique storage and tables.  The one above could be used as a night table as shown in the photo for a small fraction of the price of vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases.

This fun little trio were on sale on the end cap at my local Target, so supply is likely limited.  The colors and patterns featured on these pillows is inspired by the Italian fashion house Missoni.  Below, this vibrant color scheme is used to create a playful modern living room.

I am sure Target is struggling like all retailers are in this economy.  I was so happy to see they are still showing fresh interesting home decor.

About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    How could I have missed the peacock feather pillow today. Will have to go back for that.

    I just found your blog and it is great.
