Two home collections I’m currently lusting after…

I am a sucker for a fall/winter home décor collection. I admit this freely. I’m easy: you throw together some plaids, some stars and a few candleholders and you’ve got me. And if it’s cheap? Forget it, I’m in love.

I just had to show somebody my new crushes. (And no, no affiliate links on this one, and I’m not a paid shill. Though if someone wants to throw me some cash for this…)

IKEA Vinter

It’s no secret that IKEA’s winter/holiday collections are always charming as heck. But this year, they totally wooed me. Cable knit details, a lovely grey palette, stars, glass, industrial touches and a frickin’ faux crystal chandelier. Dude, IKEA just gets me.

My favorite items are definitely the silly plastic chandelier, these monochrome diamond gift boxes, this plumbing accident candelabra and the dishware featuring a cable knit look. And the styling, right?

Outside of the Vinter collection, I also recommend checking out this light, these string lights, this tree/light/ornament hanger and some Vintersaga to wash it all down with. I told you, charming as heck. And then some.

 

 

Target x Hearth & Hand with Magnolia

Look, if there were ever a brand more antithetical to my own aesthetic, it would probably be Magnolia. Chip and Joanna Gaines are so stylish, while I am… not. That said, I do subscribe to Martha Stewart Living, so I certainly appreciate a good class-act. And their style is traditional with a little industrial edge.

And this collab with Target is uhvrythang. Think Southern hunter meets lowcountry classic meets people who own (and regularly use) cufflinks.

My favorites from this one include these galvanized finish ornaments, this tree topper, this brass wreath hanger with a little bell (!), everything with this little x pattern on it, these star candleholders and this candleholder box centerpiece.

I was also struck by what a cute idea it was to include a dollhouse in the collection. They’re home remodelers, so it just makes sense!

One thought on “Two home collections I’m currently lusting after…

  1. I love that Vinter scene, especially the hanging star. But I can’t for a moment contemplate ever buying any IKEA furniture ever again. Too many bad memories of difficult construction projects that resulted in shoddy furniture. I know kellbot did a great job building her IKEA kitchen but I still find it daunting.
    I suppose there’s no harm though in picking up some silly chandeliers. 😉
