New Collection: Opalhouse by Target

Target launched their latest collection called Opalhouse and I'll be honest, it's kind of amazing. Think Anthropologie style at a quarter of the price. Yeah, kind of amazing. I could easily say "one of everything, please", and not have too many regrets (their styling and merchandising is pretty spot-on), but remember: the thing with Target, and with all retail stores, is while the merchandise looks fantastic in the photos, the bottom line is you don't really want your house to look like a Target photoshoot. The key is to pull out the best from each source and mix-and-match so your home gets a lovely, well-curated, nicely-blended look that feels personal and has that je ne sais quoi that makes it uniquely yours. So after a first I'll-take-it-all pass narrowed down with careful consideration, here are the items from Opalhouse that I'd add to the mix in my house:

54" Minsmere Caned TV Stand  Classic caning makes for a natural but clean look.

Tansy Strap Headboard with metal Frame  Here's a great example of how to mix-and-match your decor: with the all-Target styling shown here, this whole look is pretty over-the-top, but take the headboard out and use it in a toned-down bedroom and it becomes a really cool, interesting piece.

Floral Print Shower Curtain Yellow  I don't actually use a shower curtain (see my bathroom  here ) but if I did it would be this one!

Velvet Tufted Stitch Quilt  If you're looking for some glam, look no further than a velvet quilt. Instachic in that not-even-trying way.

Indochic Melamine Dinner Plates  Always use your best china, and when you're dining al fresco, always use fun, colorful Melamine so you don't have to worry about dropping them.

Round Velvet Floor Pillow  You can't have too many floor pillows, especially when they're this pretty (and only $30).
