How to Shop Like a Decorator—at Target
Dar Saddle Stool
Buy It: $60; target.com
With a sleek white seat and hardwood legs, this midcentury-style stool is sophisticated and sturdy. I would tuck a pair of them under a console or place one in a corner with a throw pillow and a stack of books alongside it. It’s also a fresh pick for a modern nursery.
Carlisle Distressed Metal Dining Chairs
Buy It: $100 for 2; target.com
These modern farmhouse-style chairs are such a great price ($100 for 2) and can also work as accent chairs in an entryway—top one with a small sheepskin rug for some extra chic comfort.
Soma Water Filter Pitcher
Buy It: $40; target.com
Do you need a stylish water pitcher? Probably not. But this one—the perfect marriage of minimalist design and maximum function—is pretty irresistible. The coconut shell carbon filter removes impurities, and for every Soma pitcher purchased, a donation is made to help provide clean drinking water in developing nations.
Threshold Round Platter
Buy It: $10; target.com
This melamine piece does double duty, as art on your countertop (piled with fruit) and as an entertaining essential (think family-style pasta dinners). The pretty blue geometric pattern dresses up a simple set of white plates, and the platter is durable and dishwasher-safe.
Mudhut Beaded Stripe Area Rug
Buy It: From $120; target.com
I love that this flat-weave rug feels masculine and feminine at the same time, with beaded fringe and a subdued cream and indigo palette. The timeless stripe pattern makes it a fit for any space: dining room, entryway, office, and more.
Thirstystone Marble Stripe Paddle Board
Buy It: $28; target.com
This gorgeous cutting board has the luxe look of marble countertops, minus the hefty price tag. Keep it out on the counter for food prep, use it as a cheese board, or hang it up on the wall using the attached strap.
Nate Berkus Water Hyacinth Basket With Handles
Buy It: For a similar product, $40; target.com
Woven white accents give this basket a globally inspired feel. It can act as a beautiful hamper or laundry basket (that might actually make doing the wash less daunting!), and it’s pretty enough to keep at the foot of your bed. Or use it as storage to corral throw pillows, blankets, or plush toys.
