New Spring Target Collection
If you’ve popped into a Target lately you’ll notice that their spring collection is extremely eclectic, colorful and bohemian. It’s inspired by places all over the globe and it’s full of color, fringe and organic materials. It’s SUPER wonderful and easy to mix with any style – I should know because that’s exactly what I did for this shoot. I turned three rooms of our house into a Target set to show you how you can layer on this vibe over ‘traditional’, ‘contemporary’ and ‘luxe and glam’, and we created a little video (scroll to the bottom to watch it) with them to take you through all three looks.
The rattan chairs are awesome, in fact we now have them outside at our dining table and despite them not technically being outdoor chairs, they are holding up perfectly and are extremely comfortable (we put a pillow in the seat because you know I love added comfort these days).
That table and matching bench are pretty darn good, and many people were like ‘I like your new table’ thinking it was the one that I had shipped from the farm in Indiana (which ironically is not as good of a scale as this one). But it’s solid and extremely durable in finish – so no kiddos can ruin it.
The pottery from this line is a favorite and I had already purchased it for myself before I knew I was going to do this shoot.
We mixed in some air plants and tropical flowers to make it feel even less serious.
Oh and that artwork is GREAT and such a good scale, color and price.
The footed planters on the ground are favorites around here, despite being a tiny bit too small for that vignette – I mostly just wanted you to see them.
So, if you are into a more traditional look but want to dabble in something more boho, and like to shop at Target – then here you go – or shop this page on the site to get the whole collection.
1. Large Candlestick | 2. Medium Candlestick | 3. Table Runner | 4. Framed Art | 5. Gold Metal Wall Art | 6. Slipcovered Dining Chair | 7. Dining Table | 8. Turquoise Vase | 9. Bench | 10.

For those of you who are more luxe and glam, but want to give this boho-chic look a whirl then this one is for you. We took the reading corner of Birdie’s room and turned it into a luxe and glam meets bohemian reading nook.
Obviously the wallpaper is not part of the collection (purchased here) but I figured I’d show it off for the first time (stay tuned for Birdie’s full room reveal). If you are wondering if that pink Nate Berkus chair is as good in person as it looks here, IT IS. I can’t believe it’s $230. There is nothing that feels cheap about it and the scale is great. Please ignore that the curtain is too short (the 96″ that we ordered didn’t arrive in time so we bought the 84″ in the store and had to use them because the light was just insane that time of day).
That hanging planter is just amazing … put some flowering jasmine in it and WOAH. I got that jasmine at the flower market for $7 and it’s the perfect draping plant and smells so good.
We brought a bit more color in this room – what with the pops of pinks and that deep magenta. Those lidded pots are in the top 10 of my favorite things from this entire spring collection (except I love the white ones for myself more). You can use them as decoration, storage or planters. And the white ones are just so easy to mix with any style. I also love that ladder which isn’t part of this particular collection but is great! Birdie quickly realized that she can’t climb on it and it’s honesty not a problem anymore.
The taller rustic vase on top is also GREAT for those of you who don’t want to dabble too bravely into color.
I love that this person reads both Alexa Chung, Thomas Pynchon, Kafka and a book that just says ‘MetaPhysics’. Glamourous, stylish and intelligent!!!
Right now since my house is more muted with blues, grays, and greens, what I am mostly hoarding from this collection is the pretty white textured pieces with a lot of fringe, tassels and of course some gold. I love all three of those pillows so, so much. But if you are into bold colors, they have you covered, too. Here is a get the look for the room and you can shop the entire look here.
1. Pom Pom Pillow | 2. Hand Woven Tassel Throw Pillow | 3. Macrame Lumbar Pillow | 4. Pink and Cream Throw Blanket | 5. Hanging Gold Planter | 6. Curtains | 7. Floor Lamp | 8. Brass and Wood Side Table | 9. Tufted Chair | 10. Brass Elephant | 11. Tassel Garland | 12. Accent Ladder | 13. Framed Art | 14. Pink Dash Vase | 15. Short Pink Lidded Vase | 16. Tall Pink Lidded Vase | 17. Small Bookcase | 18. Wooden Frame | 19. Pineapple Bookends | 20. Woven Basket | 21. Cream Throw Blanket
Last up is a more contemporary/modern living room that has a hefty layer of eclectic pieces to give it that boho look – but in all neutrals (which is a really, really easy way to go).
Most of these pieces were the ones I was like ‘yep, and this for me and this for me and this for me‘ as I was shopping.
For this room I wanted to show how someone who doesn’t like to go too bold can still have this eclectic sort of personality. So all the furniture is neutral then the layer of fun was added.
That rug is one of those pieces where everyone was like – “Wow, where is this rug from?’ and we now have it in Brian’s office downstairs. It’s GREAT and super kid-friendly because it’s busy but it’s not like bold and busy, it’s a quiet busy.
The sofa is from Target and you should know that it says ‘grey’ but it’s definitely more brown. I think it looks great in here (and man the petite size certainly made that room feel bigger!) and it helped warm things up. The pillows in this colorway are particularly covetable and easy to mix with others.
Fine, I bought another fig tree. It was shot 3 weeks ago and it’s still alive so I’m a really good person.
On the other side of the room we put another Nate chair in the light cream colorway which is SO pretty. I wish I could keep this room like this but a white tufted chair in the kids play area is probably not the best idea. That ottoman is actually an outdoor pouf that I bought for our patio photo shoot but that chair needed a friend so we pulled it in here.
There’s that lidded pot I was telling you about! It comes in two sizes and they are both so easy to use everywhere.
The size and shape of that white pillow makes it super easy to pair with larger squares and while some of the pillows have stiffer filling this one is SOFT and can really be cozy anywhere.
If you are into the look then we have pulled together a get the look below, or you can shop the entire living room collection here. And we even created a little video to walk you through the process:
1. Woven Wall Hanging | 2. Fringe Basket | 3. Mirror | 4. Short Lidded Pot | 5. Tall Blue Vase | 6. Gold Perched Bird Figurine | 7. Sofa | 8. Side Table | 9. Brass Drum Coffee Table | 10. Rug | 11.

A note about the global collection – Target is committed to sustainability and community by hiring artisans who weave the baskets and throw the pots. These pieces were made all over the world, buy by the artisans who specialize in that craft. Their Good Weave rugs make me feel good about purchasing.
But there is more good news. As Target launched this global collection they also teamed up with Accompany who is a socially conscious B-corp company that curates artisanal pieces all over the world. I worked with them on The Mercantile and was impressed not only by their mission to make individuals and communities better through commerce, but also their curation and style (in other words I love their clothes, jewelry and home goods and their integrity and dedication to doing good).
So without further ado here is the Target x Accompany collection:
1. Blue and White Dip-Dyed Cross Body Bag | 2. Tassel Necklace | 3. Pink Box | 4. Pink Turkish Towel | 5. Blue Throw | 6. Orange Cosmetic Bag | 7. Oversized Scarf | 8. Wooden Bowl | 9. Blue Bead Bracelet | 10. Handmade Card | 11. Wooden Pen | 12. Pom Pom Key Chain | 13. Black and White Coasters | 14. Teal and Navy Bracelet | 15. Mug | 16. Pink and White Dip-Dyed Purse
Each piece was made by artisans that Accompany works with in the country of that craft. It ranges from home to apparel and supporting it supports not only Accompany and the artisans that they hire, but also sends a message to larger retailers that collaborations with B-corps, like this, are financially successful, not just a philanthropic project. Target gets that and is dedicated to growing their amazing store in a socially conscious way while providing you and I with accessible, affordable and stylish pieces for our homes. It’s a win, win, win, win, win. That’s a lot of winning which makes you feel good while you are shopping.
To help you through the process, we pulled together this little video on how to bring some of their new pieces and that Boho look into any style.
The whole collection is so good, you guys. Look how happy I am to style with them. xx
And for those of you who are wondering what we did with all of these pieces after the shoot – come back tomorrow. xx
