Wanted to get this post out quick. The new Nate Berkus Collection hit Target last week. Though it was delayed at some spots I found it at two stores near me. Quick get out there if you love Nate's great taste. The quality of the towels, and home accessories is in my opinion excellent and not your usual Target fare. I bought a beautiful wood box and want to go back for a lacquered one, like above.
From the Target site above..
I loved the snakeskin look boxes and pillows. The towels, rugs and bedding are gorgeous colors. The soapstone bath accessories are also chic!
The box I bought at home. Love it in a lot of spaces. Not sure where it will end up..
Some more of the treasures. Average price is about $19.99!
I also scored his inspiring book, "The Things That Matter." It's about $24 at Target vs. $35 in bookstores.
The book sucked me in right away. Nate basically tells the story of his life up until now. Mementos from his life share space in his home and tell his story. He encourages us to do the same. Things that mark special events, trips and that have significance should be part of your home. This book also shows some interesting people who live with their life's treasures..
I'm a huge fan of this adorable and likeable guy and his decorating. He also is quite a writer. I read this book in one day and loved it all. His photos and story touched my heart. This is not your average decor book! One of my favorite ideas from the book, and that I personally follow in my own home from Nate is this:
"I've always believed your home should tell your story.....The truth is things matter. They have to. They're what we live with and touch each and every day. They represent what we've seen, who we've loved, and where we hope to go next. They remind us of the good times and the rough patches, and everything in between that's made us who we are."
|Could Nate be any more darling?|
Another reason I loved this book! He shows it's those things and not expensive acquisitions that make a home have style and also make you want to be there. It's your nest and not a showplace! Remember that when you are feeling your home's not living up to the model home standard.
My next post I'll show the things that matter to me, in my own home.
