Target Launches Project 62 and It is Amazingtastic

I’ve recently been obsessed with mid century modern furniture and home decor. To be honest, while I still love the whole Scandinavian minimalist style, I’m finding more and more that when you have kids and pets, you can’t have nice things. Okay, you can have nice things so long as they are functional, hard to break, and easy to clean. I find myself constantly replacing a lot of damaged or dingy things around the house. No bueno. That’s why I’m completely over the moon for this new home decor line from Target. Project 62 is the perfect marriage of form, function, and affordability. Seriously, this line speaks for itself.

This Kitchen Remodel Cost Less Than $600!

I was standing in my kitchen last night, literally counting all the things I would change if I had $50,000. Yep. Thursday nights y’all. New flooring, new backsplash, new island, new cabinets. All that. But alas, I don’t have $50K to spend on anything, let alone a remodel of a kitchen that pretty much functions. So as I sunk into Pinterest-kitchen-coveting despair, I came across the most awesome DIY kitchen remodel I’ve ever seen.

Prepare to be amazed. This is what a little creativity and a weekend of work looks like. This dramatic remodel was not only inexpensive, but also relatively simple! See for yourself. UK blogger, Wendy Gilmour of Thank Fifi, shows us how a little bit of chalk paint, concrete, and stickers —yes, I said stickers, so let your 8-year-old self rejoice!—can transform a kitchen in just one weekend. Check out these amazing pics!

This Couple Really Got the DIY Home Coffee Station Right—Fixer Upper Friday

All of us serious coffee drinkers have our own special coffee prep rituals. On auto pilot, we can crawl and grope our way to the kitchen and make our morning cup without even being truly awake. Recently, I’ve tried to streamline this process a little bit. I wanted all of my coffee paraphernalia in one place without clutter and without fuss. Most of all I wanted it to be pretty, because of course I did. This couple really hit the mark on what a fully functional, beautiful coffee station should look like. Check these pics out!

 

Creating a coffee station like this one isn’t as difficult as it might look. It’s all in the details. You can use a simple baker’s cart or a chunky piece of furniture like a buffet table or an armoire. Here’s a list of things you might consider including in your own home coffee station:

  • Glass or ceramic containers for storing everything from coffee and tea to flavored syrups and sweeteners
  • A pretty carrying tray or low top basket to organize paper cups, lids, and napkins
  • unique artwork (try chalkboard signs like the Gray House above or something like this)
  • any kind of houseplant or flower vase to add a little nature

Trend Alert—Kilim Woven Rugs and Accessories

I’m not a bold colors kinda gal. When it comes to fashion I stick to blacks and grays. Home decor is no different. I love the muted colors of Scandinavian design and I absolutely love minimalism. This has become a constant source of contention between my sister and I, as I renovate our family’s two fixer uppers. She loves bold colors and prints and we argue all the time about paint choices and accessories. Enter the awesomeness that is kilim.

Trend Alert---Killim Woven Rug and Accessories

Kilim is a type of Turkish/Persian, woven rug that boasts some pretty interesting patterns and colors. It’s making the rounds in Western homes thanks to shops like World Market and Urban Outfitters, and I think it’s just the perfect compromise between the muted design choices I make and the totally bold choices my sister loves. Because of its increasing popularity, you can find kilim print on everything from rugs to throw pillows. Check it out!
