When it rains, it pours…

While summer is usually beach season and sunshine, Atlanta has been nothing but torrential downpours for the past month. I’m kind of an ‘indoor creature’ anyways, but the almost daily floods have kept me pretty well confined to my bedroom. On the bright side, this has been a pretty good opportunity for me to gently update my personal space – which, as my friends know, I tend to do very frequently anyways.

Aside from moving pictures around and a few pieces of cheap Ikea furniture, my favourite way to easily freshen up a space is to fill the room with new accessories. By keeping furniture and walls understated, the entire mood of a space can be changed simply by switching up the decorative elements. Seeing as I like my bedroom to reflect certain elements of current interior trends, investing a lot into nonfunctional items is illogical. 

Lately, my solution for this has been Target. Not only are their home accessories extremely affordable, but they’re very well designed and a great value for money. My current favourite pieces have all come from the Nate Berkus collaboration, as most of the items keep up with the home decor trends that I’ve been loving. 

OpenZoomLayerDecorative Rhino Figural – $24.99

I bought this chrome Rhino figurine today and I’m absolutely obsessed. Oftentimes, chrome finishes can look cheap if not done correctly, but the figurine both looks and feels amazingly well done. 

OpenZoomLayer-2Dipped Bowl – $19.99

Gold dipped pottery has been a huge decor trend that I’ve been loving lately, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pick up this bowl. The shape isn’t necessarily my style, but the combination of the price tag and the amazing quality was definitely enough to make the purchase worth it. 

During my stay in Paris last week – which I’ll address more fully in a later post – I stopped by the Acne store in la Marais, and I can’t seem to get the amazing pink marble stairs out of my head. Since then, I’ve been lusting after a way to bring more stone elements into my room, and once again, Target seems to be the way to go.
