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
