in the bedroom with nate berkus

By 2/13/2015 ,

you have such a dirty mind.  we're talking about nightstands.

now let's get down and dirty.  my guestroom is overdue for a massive makeover.  it's been pretty in pink for almost 7 years now, and i've got the itch.  more like eczema of the home (i just googled 'itchiest disease and couldn't use the first two suggestions).

in search of some relief, i have dreamed up a whole new world for the room, and while the custom items are being customized, and the pennies being saved to pay for it, i thought i'd have a last hurrah in the space and bring you some eye candy to memorialize the guest room that gave it all.  

i teamed up with nate berkus at target and dared to mix in a few pieces i had with some furbish finds to style my campaign nightstand 3 ways.  the formula for each look boiled down to: a mix of pillows to kick things off, a coordinating bedcover, a piece of statement artwork, luxurious lighting and a few carefully chosen accessories chosen to accommodate guests.

nate's collection for target is always of-the-moment, easy on the budget and guaranteed to bring a fresh fix to any spot that needs a bit of quick zhushing.

nate's oversized basket is perfect for displaying some reading material for guests, or to hold guest towels and toiletries. they'll fancy you chic, and smart. lethal combo

shop it: basket // shams // lumbar pillow // quilt

the ruffled coral shade on this lamp is a luxe look, and a kooky bird votive holder provides a friend, and a bit of ambiance.

shop it: lamp // bird votive // tray // radio // green pillow // triangle pillow // floral pillow

a vase with fresh blooms makes the room lively and a chic frame could hold wifi instructions, a welcome greeting, or a picture of yourself so your guest never feels lonely (weird?).

shop it: vase // frame // sham // lumbar pillow // quilt

here, i'll make it easy:
