I, like most Creatives, find the need to constantly be changing it up.  I don’t know if it’s the fact that we need actual change, or that we need to create the change, but regardless we need it.  For me, one of those places were I need this change is in my decor.  And while it’s too costly and time consuming to always be switching up paint, furniture, or kitchen cabinets (oh how I wish I could change my kitchen cabinets) one place I can always easily, and inexpensively, change are the accents that really make a house a home.    

So with an itch for change I knew I had to scratch I headed to one of my favorite places to find one of my favorite designers, and a few good pieces.  Nate Berkus for Targets’ spring line does not disappoint.  It’s chalked full of natural woods, bright whites, and boho inspired accents to mix and match.  Each piece feels collected and has a light, relaxed airiness to it that just screams of California vibes.  

I began with my favorite place to always change; my coffee table.  I traded my faux python for Nate’s ceramic hand wrought white and blue tray (which would be an amazing serving piece as well), filled the etched ceramic pedestal bowl with snacks, cut some fresh eucalyptus for the textured glass vase, and finished it off with two decorative pyramids.

I had to snag Nate’s triangle throw since there are few things I love as much as a good blanket and this one is perfect for both my couch or an afternoon in the park.  And the wood and resin inlay tray is my new go-to for schlepping coffee, water, more coffee, and any of my other morning necessities to and fro.

Lastly, in my office I finally corralled the overwhelming stack of magazines by placing them in Nate’s Hyacinth Water Basket, and continued the work on my #shelfie.  I added a second etched ceramic pedestal bowl to store my wine corks (I loved it so much I had to have two), a fabulous little bird tea light, and the gold bird dish to display my shells and sea glass I’ve collected over numerous trips to the beach.  I’ve also  got my eye on this globe light which would make a welcome #shelfie or possible bar cart addition. 

All in all I’d say by adding just a few new pieces the rooms received quite the breath of fresh California air.  Now only if we could get that warm California weather!  Truly, MKR

  • What is the story on those fabulous tasseled stools in front of the coffee table? Amazing!

  • YOU ARE SO GOOD…LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS

  • I ADORE the throw and that fun bowl! Beautiful photos. I’ve been wanting to get rid of all my coral/turquoise and swap it out for more neutrals and softer hues. May need to check out the new Nate line, he can do no wrong!

  • Love the new NB line for Spring. I love the boho vibe of it all and I love it here in your space. That globe light is making waves for sure and is fast becoming a favorite. I love that pom pom stool so much too. I couldn’t agree more about creative and craving change. I grew up as a military brat and them joined myself after high school. My life was always about change and new locations and experiences. Its really unnatural to me NOT to be in a state of change. The thing I love about design is it gives me the power to change my surroundings now that Ive settled her in Cali. Its the best of both worlds really. Great Post!

  • I love how you styled your room! Nate’s Spring collection is truly so much fun. I have my eyes on his baskets!

  • Girl, your media room is looking super fab! I’m loving the collection of blue pillows with the metallic trunk.

  • I have always been a huge fan of Nate Berkus’ style! I love that curates items at Target for affordable prices but that still have a WOW factor!

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Mandy!

  • Thanks doll, and happy Valentines Day to you too! xo

  • Thank you doll, means a lot coming from you! xoxo

  • Thank you so much, NB really hits it out of the park again and the baskets are fabulous!! xo

  • Thanks girl, it was fun to add these lighter hues, it made everything feel very airy and fresh. xo
