These Are the 6 Most Important Décor Trends at Target Right Now
Let's get one thing straight before we launch into this story. We generally err on the side of Nate Berkus's trend philosophy. That said, we don't worship trends: Rather, we use them as a guide on how to refresh our space (or style) each season. "Quite frankly, I'm never going to be the guy who tells somebody they need to re-cover their sofa and patterns because the seasons have changed," he told MyDomaine in an interview last year. Trends are fickle creatures; they come, they go, they're in, they're out. And much quicker than most of us can keep up with or afford.
But we've found a happy medium. Invest in a timeless foundation and pepper in the seasonal decorative accents, from vibrant beachy pillows to colorful throws, handcrafted pottery, and artwork you can layer on top to make your home feel fresh and current (without putting a major dent in your wallet). When the new season hits, here's one place we always turn to: Target. And we know you do too. It's also Emily Henderson's go-to.
"Although Target may be the king of affordable and stylish accessories, I am loving some of its new simple and beautiful furniture pieces that can transition and be used in almost any style," she told us. "The Rodney Chair is one of those pieces. Its clean lines, neutral fabric, and classic shape make it a winner for me." Intrigued to discover the most important Target home trends (and products) you should pay attention to right now? Below, we highlight the top six to have on your radar from now until fall.
While the world hasn't changed in physical size, thanks to the connective power of the internet, it's definitely smaller. We can still feel close to family and friends who live across the globe and keep abreast of what's happening socially, culturally, and politically no matter where we are. We're also traveling more frequently, thanks to cheaper flights, and this has had a huge influence on design and how we style our spaces. Who doesn't love to bring their vacation back home? It fuels our wanderlust and keeps those memories alive long after you return. This Target trend is definitely something we subscribe to.
Nate Berkus for Target Round Fringed Basket ($35)
We're a sucker for baskets—these target baskets are everything. Not only does this Nate Berkus design look insanely stylish, but it also works incredibly hard in a space. It doesn't just it pretty; this multipurpose piece can be used for storage, a laundry basket, or a place for kids toys. Genius.
When summer hits, all we want to do is open up the curtains, let our rooms bathe in the sunlight, and surround ourselves with color. Who can blame us? It's pure joy everywhere you turn. We love how Target infuses bright hues in a room without feeling overwhelmed by it. This living room has a neutral foundation with color splashed on top. You can layer as much or as little as you like.
All we want to do is surround ourselves in Mother Nature in the summer, and this trend brings her inside for a nice, warm and cozy hug. Think timber details, raw natural materials, and woven details. This is the kind of stress-free environment we all want to come home to. Open the window and let that summer light fill the space and take a deep, relaxing breath.
Tropical midcentury? Yeah, we know this sounds like a strange combination at first, but you only have to see Target's living room to understand why it's one of our favorites for the summer season. Why? Because it mixes two of our favorite things: tropical destinations and midcentury furniture. Take a look below at how you can fuse the two together for a seriously stylish effect at home.
If color isn't for you, then follow Berkus's lead and stick to a muted palette. This is brimming with texture and midcentury vibes, and while the dark tones feel a tad wintry, it's the metallic accents and the tasseled throw pillow that bring this into the new, warmer season. Although, UK interior design maven Abigail Ahern says inky hues are relevant all year round. "It doesn't matter where you live: hot climates, cool climates, in the city, in the country, on the coast. Even if your space faces north or it’s bijou with very little natural light, inky hues will give the space an instant Hitchcockian vibe and add oodles of interest," she told MyDomaine. If this is your style too, then read on to see how you can use Target pieces to inject this vibe at home.
There's nothing quite like the appeal (and aesthetic) of a handcrafted piece. It has those cool artisanal features you simply can't replicate, unless you're Target, of course. The design team created a stunning range of unique pottery and decorative accents with handpainted designs or prints. Your guests' mouths will drop to the floor when you tell them where these pieces from.
