Target Styling Chapter #8: Into the bedroom
Like the rest of the world we took a break during the holidays but now its time to go into the bedroom and style it out – just like we are doing below. This video is all about bed styling and mixing textiles, but I know that there are also a lot of pretty darn wonderful Target pieces in there for the rest of the room, too, and all the resources are near the end.
When we started this room it was completely white – a totally blank space. It was our goal to make it look layered and interesting, full of vintage and Target, with lots of textures, pops of color and personality.
That blue stripe rug is ridiculously cute, and yes, layering it is never a bad idea. That macrame wall hanging is Target and if you are interested in it I’d suggest you just buy it right now. It’s the ‘brass ball lamp’ of this season, meaning that its going to sell out very fast and then make a lot of people sad. It’s totally impressive. And that pouf is part of Nate’s collection which should be out any day. Salmon is big this season as you all know, so we brought it into the space isn the most non-90’s way possible and I think it worked.
I love those gold based benches, not sure if they are still available, but if they aren’t I just saw these in the store and I love them.
I just bought two of those lamps up there for a photo shoot today – I totally forgot we used the samples in this video. They are just so good. As we were styling with them today we kept saying how simple and modern they are – totally mid-century inspired and the shades look really pretty and high-end. Not all their lamps work with so many different styles, but I’m digging those a lot (and I think they are replacing my DIY lamps in my guest room – which are just too bright for me – my bad).
We did an art wall which I’ll talk more about in the next video. Also please note the frame of Brian and I embracing from when we were 21 years old (in the photo above). We were camping and apparently both loved head-gear.

For the bedding we wanted to show how you can mix and match different sheets, blankets, comforters, shams and decorative pillows. You’ll notice that the two patterns are totally different scales and different patterns so they contrast each other really well. And the coral and teal is pretty much a really good example that if you mix the colors consistently in a room and on a bed that any two colors can work together. Then we added some texture and a random vintage needlepoint with a more graphic pattern to shake it up a bit.
If you are wondering where my shirt is from, its vintage, and its one of those that if I had a fashion line I would re-produce in ONE SECOND. I’d make it in every color. Its made out of whatever that cotton was that doesn’t wrinkle (but feels like cotton), the princess sleeves are just so flattering and the peter pan collar is my favorite. Someone please reproduce this now.
That’s not exactly how I styled it (I think things got moved) but I wanted to credit everything anyway.
