TARGET IN THE NEW YEAR

IMG_4193.JPG

hope 2019 is off to a great start! if you follow me on instagram, you may have seen some stories about what i found at target this past week. it is SO FREAKING. GOOD. and you seem to agree since i got many a DM’s blaming (thanking?) me for making you place an order or visit a store. most are project 62 which is their more modern line and they’re just killing it right now. soft and muted earth tones, stoneware and earthenware, organic wood tones. like i said, SO good!

i’ve rounded up some of my favorites including a few that have now found a home in #farmhousedialfano {seen above}.

one / perhaps my favorite, this is billed as a planter but i brought it home to corral toys, books + stuffed animals.

two / currently residing on our interior define couch. note: it’s bigger than the usual pillow size.

three / this earthenware vase is the perfect neutral.

four / i first saw the bench version via kismet house’s instagram and didn’t realize there was a matching chair until i came across it in the store. i’m DYING to find a spot for it in our house.

five / cute bud vase.

six / this elephant basket would look adorable in a kids room or playspace. there’s also a llama version.

seven / these hearth & hand wood scoops came home with me.

eight / another great option for storage or a plant.

nine / i am kicking myself for not buying this wood letterboard and may have to reconsider.

ten / got this pillow for the chair in max’s room.

eleven / technically a tealight candle holder but i love the idea of using it for a plant, dried grass or even pens + pencils!

twelve / a pretty bowl that could hold fruit in the kitchen or keys in the entryway.

thirteen / i picked up this side table for our living room. i want something smaller than what’s currently there and i love that this has storage!

fourteen / hearth & hand wood plates perfect for entertaining.

fifteen / the terrazzo trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon.

sixteen / i love this earthenware tray but it really can only be for decorative purposes.

seventeen / this stoneware picture frame is just what i was looking for without even knowing it. i’m currently making changes to part of our living room and one of the new details is a gallery ledge {seen here however it already looks different!}.

happy friday + happy shopping!

DECK THE HALLS WITH {FAUX} GREENERY

growing up jewish, we didn’t exactly embrace all things christmas or holiday {except for having stockings at our ski house though i’m not sure why?}. but then i married someone who does celebrate christmas and then we had a daughter who is lucky to celebrate both holidays so i decided i’m now all in when it comes to holiday decorating.

my must-haves for the holiday season? greenery + garlands. i’m still outfitting all the rooms in the house but #farmhousedialfano is well on its way to seasonal bliss as you can see above. i get a lot of questions about using real garlands and greenery, and for the first time i was actually tempted to invest in some quality faux garlands that could be reused for years to come. ultimately i decided to stick to live ones but for those of you not ready to deck your halls with items that will shed like crazy and ultimately die, i’ve rounded up some great faux options for you.
