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:

highpoint market faves

Hi!

So last month, I was able to cross something off my design bucket list.    MTD took us girls on a 4 day trip to this little thing called Highpoint Market.

Seriously I was so excited when I found out we were going.  It has been one of my dreams since my college days at Michigan State.  To grow up and be a real legit designer and go to the biggest residential furniture trade show.

It was amazing. We found some great new lines. It was also so helpful to sit in, touch, and see the quality firsthand of some furniture pieces we’ve been eyeing for a long time.  Yes, “shopping” for work is enough to make anyone jealous, but I’m not going to lie, it was exhausting.  We covered about 6-7 miles a day on foot.  Probably the first trip I’ve ever taken and not gained weight.

Here’s some of my favorite finds from this amazing trip.   Hope you enjoy!

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.

beautiful boho modern home in California

It’s all going modern in the design world these days.  Everywhere you look it’s crisp white walls, clean lines, geometric rugs, and color pops in the pillows.  And while it’s absolute eye-candy, sometimes its hard to imagine someone actually living there.  Do they have dogs? Or kids?? Do they sit in those metal chairs for longer than 15 minutes?? They must clean. Every. Single. Day. The questions just seem to just burn a hole in my brain.  Because as much as I am about beauty, a design has to be comfortable and functional, too.

So what’s the answer to a practical modern home that is chic and cozy?  The bohemian modern look, of course.  It’s stylish yet feels lived in.  I can’t get enough of the natural, understated beauty.

The ever-so-talented Becki Owens and Nicole Davis posted this project on Instagram awhile back, and it’s like the angels were singing out of the heavens.  Featured on Domaine Home, this amazing California home marries modern style with everyday comfort.

I could totally see myself hanging out here. Reading a magazine.  Basking in all that natural light.

And this kitchen! Simple, white, and gorgeous.  The rug really adds a fun color pop.
