My job just gets easier and easier. Target’s fall collection launched last week and it is VERY, VERY, VERY good. They invited me to host a big editor event in upstate New York a few weeks ago where I previewed a lot of the pieces in person and took some iPhone pics, but then when I saw the catalogue (that I believe my lovely friend Scott, styled) I felt compelled to post it instead as it is just so well done and really showcases the products so well.
The catalogue looks like a magazine – a magazine of beautiful, stylish and inexpensive pieces that you can buy anywhere in America (both online and in stores). They sent me a few pieces earlier this week, which I styled out in the shot above. When I went shopping not everything was in store yet, but now it is.
Yes, those pink chairs are Nate Berkus for Target and they are so good (although I think stock is already low). We are scrambling to find a project to put them in but don’t have one right now. I’m tempted to hoard them just in case (elliot’s new bedroom?).
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this vase. It’s an instant Target classic in my book and I bought one of each style/size for me. The chair, table and mirror are all wonderful, too.
Yes to all of those. I bought the marble tray with the gold handles, the mortar and pestle (why?? I don’t even know what to do with that?) and the stoppers for a client.
Target’s art department has previously been something that we don’t shop too much from, but not anymore … they launched a whole new collection and it’s genuinely VERY, VERY, VERY amazing. Please see for yourself:
Framed Pattern Abstract Blue Prints | Watercolor Blue Abstract Prints | Watercolor Blue Pebble Print | Agate Abstract Print | Metal Wall Grid Decor | Marble and Wood Coffee Table | Gold Wall Burst Art | Woven Blanket |
We are still buying those windsor chairs for clients and now they have the bentwood thonet style ones. Yes to those pendants, too.
I have the huge blue bowl (which looks great on a shelf or holding magazines, too), the salad servers, and the wood and brass salt and pepper grinders, duh.
I bought the dutch oven, blue bowl, and salt and pepper for a client to style out this week (The Lorey’s kitchen is finally being shot!!).
Marble & Copper Cake Stand | Tall Wood Pepper Mill | Short Wood Pepper Mill | Light Blue Serving Bowl | Small Blue Marbled Vase | Tall Blue Marbled Vase | Gold Measuring Spoons | Gold Measuring Cups | 16 Piece Dinnerware Set | Teapot | White Pitcher | Rose Gold Flatware Set | Plaid Kitchen Towel | Gold Pie Server | White & Gold Dip Bowls |
I feel so proud. Can you believe that a store that sells litter boxes, underwear, and bikes can also produce really beautiful tabletop, furniture, and art direct shoots that look like this?
I bought these blue mugs for the shoot and for me (the ones that are hanging).
You know I snagged the plaid kitchen towel and, of course, I already have the gold flatware.
Finally they have a dinner set that I love. I have always wished they had a simpler white set and now they do.
This braided rug is so good in person. We have it in the studio right now for an upcoming shoot and the quality, color, and feel are so so good.
Green Marble & Wood Edison Lamp | Green Marble and Copper Table Lamp | Double Gourd Lamp | Gold Drum Table | Gold Coffee Table | Gold Tripod Lamp | Gold Task Lamp | Black Task Lamp | Gold Ball Lamp | White Task Lamp | Marble and Wood Edison Lamp
As soon as the double gourd lamp is for sale I’m buying them for future bedrooms. There are so many times that we hunt and search for a pretty gourd lamp that isn’t generic and is a large scale. Why? Because beds tend to be square and nightstands tend to be square so what you want is something with some shape and large scale enough to work with a king bed. It’s hard. I haven’t seen this one in person, but it looks really pretty and isn’t that generic gourd shape.
That coffee table is going to go fast. I saw it in person at my Glendale Target and it’s GREAT.
I love those concrete candle holders and that vase. I broke the black/white bull in the store (not out of anger but because my cart was so over-full that it fell out). I apologized profusely and they were very nice about it.
LOVE that quilt.
Isn’t their catalogue so beautiful? As a former catalogue stylist, I know how much work it can take to make so much product look editorial, so nice job Johnny Miller and Scott Horne (and Target for having very forward art direction).
If you don’t know what to buy then don’t worry because I’ve gone ahead and rounded up my favorites from the Fall collection. I truly love so much of it, but I narrowed it down. And as you know, things sell out FAST so if you are on the fence just buy and if you don’t need it or can’t find the right place for it in your home, simply return it. 🙂
Happy shopping folks!
