{Living Room} Adding Some Accessories

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

As I mentioned in this post, I joined the Missoni for Target craze and managed to grab a few things online. Well, my order finally arrived, and I'm pretty happy with the few things I've decided to keep.

First up is this flip-top box.

It's nice to have more decorative storage spots, and I love the blues paired with the armoire. I wish the zig-zags on the lid matched-up with the base, but for $15, I'll get over it.

Next is the ceramic vase. You've probably seen this a few times as a lot of people picked it up, too. I'm surprised at how substantial this vase feels, and love the shape, pattern and black/white combo.

Lastly, the oblong throw pillow. I wanted to mix up the shapes and sizes of my couch pillows, and this one seems to fit in pretty well. It doesn't scream "Missoni for Target!!!" to me, or rather MISSONI FOR TARGET!!!, it just looks like a really high-end pillow. It still wears the tag though, since I'm not completely sold on it yet.

You may notice the new black and white throw on the back of the sofa! Thanks to Carmel, I ran to Ikea and grabbed one right after she posted about hers! I love the extra pattern and texture it adds, and it pairs perfectly with the black accents in the room, like the Gold Lined Lampshades and the Black Mantel.

Rita Return took back the zig-zag string bikini, iphone case and stemless wine glasses (since I made my own!) I know the Missoni craze has died down, but did you keep what you managed to get? Can you see this room starting to come together?!



Pin It!


24 witty retorts:

  1. Looks like it's coming together nicely. Love the pillow and the trow on the couch. Nice touch. Darn, Rita Return, I thought you'd model that string bikini for us. Too late now!

  2. Love the new items!! Great missioni finds too! I was one of the unlucky ones who could not get on targets website and when I did manage to run by my target later in the day, every single thing I would have wanted was gone!!
    Love the room updates!

  12. Cassie you made all the right choices, they don't look as if they came from Tarjay!! Not that would be a bad thing, but they look more custom with how you have applied them to your room. Now I am off to look at Ikea for that throw, I need a couple for my backyard for the cooler nights, Love stripes!! Kathysue

  15. I really like the vase. I've returned all my Missoni (and there was a lot of it) except for some hair pins and a frame. I still have the ballet flats too but they are falling apart so the lady at Target said I could bring those back too.

  16. I'm new to your blog via the cute little "Jar Mummies" that I saw somewhere on Pinterest, & I'm now a new follower. I'm just getting acquainted with your blog, but love those pops of color you've added with the Target purchases.

  17. LOVE what you kept, girly...yeah, I think after the craze died down, everyone felt like returning a little bit of their splurges...*ahem*...(c: But that pillow is so absolutely perfect, it makes my design loving heart all a-flutter (c:

  18. Love the new additions especially the pillow! Would you believe I returned pretty much everything I bought- I was with you it screamed Missoni for Target and I was over it! I kept the ballet flats but I am still debating on them. BTW love the painted lamp shades!

  19. I love what you kept - things I haven't seen. I actually physically went to Target that morning but the crowd beat me to it. lol There was nothing left (with the exception of boots and little girls' accessories). I think the pieces you've kept look beautiful in your already gorgeous room! ;)

  20. Thanks for taking the last throw from IKEA! I wanted one! Oh well. I'll wait until next week when I go to Round Rock. They have plenty in stock.
    Speaking of Missoni returns, I need to return my super cute black heels bc they won't stay on even after I went down a half size. Urgh! I love the pillow you got.
