Getting Cozy With Nate Berkus at Target

Updating my favorite space with the new Nate Berkus at Target Fall 2016 Line
Filed Under > Ideas & Inspiration


It’s official; everything Nate Berkus touches turns to gold.  Case in point: his amazing new fall/holiday collection at Target.  

I’ve been a fan of Nate’s for what seems like forever, and anytime he releases a new Nate Berkus at Target Collection I’ve been known to rush to my nearest Target at all hours of the day or night to get my hands on pieces from the line.  So when I got the opportunity to collaborate on the Nate Berkus at Target fall/holiday line I of course jumped at the chance to add a few of his latest and greatest to my home.  

If you remember, this isn’t our first collaboration with Nate.  Last year I collaborated on a spring living room refresh and you’ll still find all of the pieces scattered throughout my home and office.  That collection was all about laid-back California vibes, making it perfect for the freshness and warmth that spring always seems to bring.  But this collection is completely different, and completely perfect for switching things up as temps begin to drop and the holidays begin to sneak up on us. 

And I must say, this most recent collection may have any collections from the past beat, because this time he’s introduced furniture to the line!  That’s right…furniture.  And in all of its black and white and gold goodness, it’s really a no-brainer that it’s going to be a hit.  The whole collection is so strong, but I think it’s the furniture that is truly the strongest.  I was extremely impressed with the construction of the pieces, especially at the wallet-friendly price point. 

With the look of the fall line (textured neutrals, elegant metallics and subtle glam details), I knew immediately I wanted to incorporate these pieces into my bedroom sitting room.  This time of year, it’s where you’ll find me with a glass of wine, my favorite magazines by the fire.  And as you’ll remember, the space doesn’t shy from the drama; the walls are painted a deep, rich grey and includes a cozy spot with a coffee table and two grand statement armchairs.  Pretty much perfect for a little black, white and gold, no?

I was quick to grab this gorgeous gold side table.  In any part of my home, I like to have little tables like this for drinks, candles, magazines…you name it. They’re easy to move around, and perfect for when you’re cuddled in a corner and have no plans on moving.  

I also picked up this great little black and rattan ottoman.  As you can see in the photos, it’s intricate construction makes this piece really stand out, and works wonderfully next to the chairs.  

Naturally I have a bar cart in the room, so I picked up these cool gold obelisks as accent pieces as well as this white vase to house my collected quail feathers.

On our coffee table, I added this wood studded box (for stashing the not-so-pretty necessities such as remotes!) and this beautiful starburst gold bowl for my collection of matches. And of course no coffee table is complete without a tray, and this striking black and gold hexagon tray, is both a piece of art and also serves a most functional purpose.  

Lastly, throw pillows.  I’m one of those people that change out my throw pillows every season, so I was quick at the draw with this faux sheepskin one (it feels very wintery), as well as this fun geo pillow with tassels and denim studded pillow.  Those along with his striped tassel throw will help make it hard to leave once settled in. 

Obsessed much?  Yes, yes I am. But my excitement over the finds doubled (tripled really) at the chance to chat with Nate about the collection. I loved hearing that he really does travel to Target’s HQ in Minnesota, to do a little quality control on every product.  That means touching and testing every single sample.  And if something doesn’t feel right?  In his own words “it’s either fixed or pitched.”  Knowing that he signs off on everything that makes it to the shelves makes me love, and trust everything that much more.  

I also asked him if it was hard to design within Target’s friendly price point?  To my surprise he quickly responded that it wasn’t.  Explaining that Target is super open-minded when it comes to his ideas on materials and designs and trying to make what he’s envisioning come to life. 

Finally, we of course talked about inspiration.  Nate said he’s the most inspired by his globe trotting ways; and is constantly bringing back samples, pieces, and textures from all over the world that he tries to work into his designs. And as if he could get any cuter, he mentioned how much he loves seeing how everyone styles the pieces in their own homes. So get to Instagramming, because NB is watching what you share!  

Tell me friends, have you scored pieces from the Nate Berkus 2016 Fall/Holiday collection yet?! Truly, MKR

P.S.  I’ll be sharing a few more great finds from the collection as part of the big ORC reveal (wait till you see the bathroom rugs), so stay tuned!  xo

  • Everything he does is SO good! We moved into a new apartment three months ago (much, much smaller than our last) and I’ve been struggling with how to decorate it. That white console table with the wood top would be perfect for our little entryway area 🙂

    I am also smitten with NB pieces for Target. My favorite color combo, black and white with gold accents( my bedroom). Love the bar cart in photo. Do you have any info as to where it can be purchased? Thank you, Cathie
