A quick lunchtime stop into Target earlier this week yielded pure awesomeness.
I really dropped by the never-fail-me store with the intent of hunting down some sheets for the new guest bed (which is a nice spacious queen, the only glitch being that I only own full-sized sheet sets). And I did find sheets (keep reading) but I was more wow-ed with the store’s display of home goods (quick search online tells me that many of my coveted items were from the Blue + White Collection). The display at Target itself is a little shabby-chic that makes you feel like you’re in a rustic seaside cottage (or maybe in Poland, given the deep blue hues), and I love it. None of the rooms of my house are based on a “theme”, but some of the pieces in this collection would fit right into my shabby/mid-century/swedish-style. I think a couple of pieces would be great complimentary pieces to the rooms as they are right now. Here are some vases and wall art that I fancied, which I unfortunately couldn’t find online to source properly:
Naturally, I was drawn to lamps (majorly lacking them in my house, as in, I have none). This wooden lamp base would look wonderful in the living room (think: to the left side of the couch where a nice tall end table might be someday), and I’m drawn to the detail on this ceramic French Country Lamp. And finally, who could say no to this darling owl lamp? I didn’t find it in-store, but it popped up when I was browsing target.com. And it comes in white too.
Finally – this isn’t part of the Blue + White Collection, but it popped up on the site when I was perusing: the Capis Shell Floral Pendant would absolutely be considered for my home if I was in the market for replacing a ceiling light…
And I also found a pretty one in turquoise. Might be a fun addition to… I don’t know, I just love the detail and material.
Oh yeah, and the sheets? I found some. In clearance. I’m talkin’ $30-queen-size-700-thread-count-sheets (originally priced at $60). In gray to help keep my room-to-room palette moderately cohesive. This is a really big win in my book. But shoot, my guests will be sleeping in a more lux bed than myself. Once again, I couldn’t find the product online to source, but here’s a (poor) snapshot of the packaging:
(Hey, does anyone know what designers are going to be featuring spring lines at Target?)
