January: Out & About

Each month, I thought it would be fun if I ventured out to some of my go-to stores for home decor and compiled my favorite finds into a blog post. This month, I took a trip to everyone’s favorite store: Target. I also popped into Homegoods, another favorite of mine, for a little inspiration. I’ve got to admit, I felt a little silly taking photos inside the store, but these are the lengths I go to for this blog !!

Blanket found here.

My first stop was Target. I didn’t go to the Target I usually go to — which in opinion has a MUCH better home selection — but this store was basically next door to Homegoods, so for convenience sake I popped in there. My favorite find, and the only item to come home with me, was this blanket I’ve linked above. I’m loving the tassels and the texture of this throw. It looks and feels much more expensive than the $14 that I paid for it!

Wood slice found here.

I actually have this exact wood slice in my home. It’s perfect if you need to add a little height to display a decorative item. It’s listed as a “serving platter” which I’ve not used it for, but I could see assembling a cheeseboard on it.

A few kitchen items that caught my eye: this wood and marble mug tree and trio of floral jars. I love an all white kitchen with pops of color and those canisters would fit that bill perfectly.

Chair found here. Pillow found here.

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t impressed with the current indoor home decor at Target, but I did see some items that I really liked. Both this wooden chair and the basketweave pillow are great finds. I love textured neutrals and you can’t go wrong with a classic shape of a Windsor chair.

Ceramic planter found here.

I am really into the stoneware planters and this large woven basket. I was thisclose to buying the basket and using it as a planter. Put a small plastic dish in the bottom for water, drop a snake plant inside, and you have a gorgeous arrangement that will last forever. I do NOT have a green thumb, and even I can keep a snake plant alive!

Speaking of snake plants, my next stop was Homegoods and I spotted this faux potted snake plant as soon as I walked in. You have to be careful with faux greenery; sometimes it can look and feel…well, faux. This one was good quality and and didn’t immediately scream “fake.”

I love the built-in charger on the white and gold cart. It would be perfect as an addition to a vanity in a small space. It would also look great in a home office. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but the piece is on casters — great for versatility!

This black wire hanging organizer is still at Homegoods. I bought it well over a year ago for my own home to use as a mail organizer. For its minimalist shape, it can surprisingly hold a lot of weight – i.e., magazines my husband never reads 😉

Similar style found here.

The last few things I found and loved at Homegoods are these chairs. I absolutely love the mustard color of the armchair. In the right home, it would add such a warm, bold pop of color. The periwinkle outdoor chair is an amazing find. The shape is so on trend and it’s $60. There’s chairs out there that are identical for more than double that price! And finally, this barstool. The color. The fabric. The gold legs. The back handle! Ugh. So chic. I wish I had an island in my kitchen. A couple of those would have came home with me without question!

All in all, my trip to Target and Homegoods gave me some good inspiration for freshening up my home and hopefully this post did the same for you!

  1. We are slowly facelifting our kitchen & some of these are just perfect–the mail sorter & floral jars are so great as ideas! We are brightening a very dark & busy-wallpapered room, but I know I’ll want some pattern! Fun finds!
