5 items I’m loving at Target right now (all under $100!)

Hola! Hope you enjoyed this past weekend. I can’t believe it is already June, and although Summer hasn’t officially started, it sure feels like it around here!

A couple of weekends ago I made a trip to Target to grab a couple of random items and got sucked into their home section. (You know, the usual.)

I would say especially over the last couple years, Target has really upped their game when it comes to housewares and home decor items.  They have some really great designer looks but without the high price tag.  Here are my faves:

Lake Michigan modern farmhouse

Lake Michigan is one of my soft spots.  My memories drift back to being 19, young and in love, spending summer nights on the shore. Giant dunes and water for days, a coastline that could be mistaken for the ocean.  It was a time before social media, smartphones, and up-to-the-second updates.  Maybe we were naive to the world around us, but time just seemed to stop.  And in those moments is when you feel most alive.

When I saw this project on Lonny a couple weeks back, it hit that soft spot. Carefree and breezy, this modern farmhouse is just simply beautiful.

Love all of the white and coastal decor that isn’t too in-your-face beachy.

I miss the easy lake life, the simplicity of youth.  I think that’s why I love this project so much.

color story: moss + pink

Pink has always been a chic, feminine color.  But using pink in your home doesn’t have to say, “hey look at me, I’m a girls bedroom!”  If it feels too girly for your taste, jazz it up with mossy green to create a fun, welcoming space!

These colors tend to create a more traditional feel, but depending on the patterns and textures used, the look lean towards bohemian, modern, or tropical.

color story: gray + cream + linen

It’s a cold and dreary February morning here in Texas.  I don’t want to get out of bed.  36 degrees may seem warm to half of the US right now, but my skin has definitely thinned out in my years removed from the Mitten State.  Although I can’t seem to count the good things about this time of year on 2 hands, one thing that can be beautiful is the peaceful solitude and lack of color. Grays + creams seem to go hand-in-hand with winter.  They are soft and subtle.  Deep and calming.  They make you just want to curl up in a corner with a blanket. Herz Allerliebst bedding

I think that is why this color combo is so popular in bedrooms.

A kitchen composed of all neutrals is my absolute fave.  I love how light and open it feels. Tobi Fairley Pleasant Valley Kitchen

Gray and cream can be quite stunning. And stylish. gray coat + cream sweater

I love the soft gray tones, but also the charcoals, too. They add just the right amount of drama and contrast to the space

This look is pretty hard to mess up.  Just pair varying neutral shades and textures together, in a mix of warm and cool, and you’ll have that polished, relaxed look:
