Target’s latest line with Safavieh has me yelping “That’s from Target?!” left and right these days. I am dying to nab a bunch of these insanely good items for my new addition (which starts in about a week and a half so get ready for lots of renovation posts!) Here’s my most favorite picks right now (get ‘em while they last!):
Guess who put together this amazing booth at the Interior Design Show in Toronto?
You’ll never guess…
IKEA! I’m serious!
I had to look twice to believe my eyes (especially the kitchen and bath!) Pretty awesome display of what you can do when you mix lots of budget items with a few well placed higher end ones. Also, who doesn’t love a good Ikea hack?? Here are a collection of great ideas of how to dress up simple pieces from the big box store and make them into statements. I did a good one in my bedroom- but you’ll have to wait for the book to see (sorry!)
I get so stupidly excited when new stuff comes out from vendors I use a lot for design projects. As of late, I have been giddy over all the new stuff coming out from Ballard Designs, a company I use a lot for budget friendly jobs. Take a peek at some of my favorite new things- so good, right?
This table skirt blew my mind. Know why?
Because it looks just like this one I’ve coveted forever from designer Tom Scheerer! Having this made would cost at least three times as much as they are charging.
DYING over the lacquered faux bamboo barstools.
These days there is no excuse for bad decor since there is SO MUCH good design going on at retail stores all over. Here are my current faves from two I shop at constantly: Target and West Elm.
I have loved every collection that Nate Berkus has released with Target thus far, but this one may take the cake! Done almost entirely in my favorite palette of black, gold, wood and white I am ALL OVER these great finds.
A pair of folding metal campaign stools are great for the end of a bed or under a console table, and this gold candelabra would make a great centerpiece on a dining table in lieu of flowers.
And while we’re talking about Target, check out these other insanely great items from their Threshold line. High style at a low price. For example, a brass and wood bar cart for under $130 and a leather strap mirror for under $25.
And now onto West Elm, which is KILLING it right now too with their new releases! I mean, I can;t tell you how many time I sat up and yelled “SO GOOD!” while perusing the site.
I was SO pumped to see they partnered with Boston based furniture maker Richard Watson to make an affordable version of his INCREDIBLE highboy (right) which I have been lusting after since seeing it at the gorgeous Beacon Hill shop Good. Someday I will have one.
Totally getting this gold rimmed jewelry box for my new dresser, absolutely gorgeous way to display your trinkets. For a bit of bling elsewhere, his gilded pillow will do.
There are two places I cannot go in without coming out with three times the stuff I went in for- CVS and Target. The latter being the worst culprit- I go in for a bathmat and come out with a shirt, three picture frames, a side table and pair of sunglasses…. (and forget the bathmat). The new collection of home goods they just released doesn’t make it any easier to get in and out efficiently. It’s sometimes hard to find all the good stuff on their massive site so here are my favorites (some are even already on sale). More proof you don’t need to spend a ton to add a little style to your space!

This little pillow looks a lot like a Moroccan wedding blanket, no?
I’d love this bird lamp base with this piped shade!
Furniture line Blu Dot did a line for them too- a bit more on the modern side but a few fun pieces for offices and kitchens!
This little drink table looks a lot like a MUCH pricier one!
LOVING this rope lamp for a beach house!
