Hold on to your toddlers folks, because its finally here. Target has a kids decor line called PillowFort, and its very good, stylish, fun, and extremely affordable. It officially launched yesterday, so we thought wed highlight our favorites and show some of them styled in my house (with a sneak peek into Elliots nursery). Part of my job with Target is receiving advance pieces of their new collections and playing with them. Its just terrible.
Here are some of my favorites that I got to play with, as well as pictures and links to the whole collection.
That white/gold ball lamp. Its simple and graphic (it could go anywhere in your home, actually), and perfect scale for a nursery. When I drafted this post I had only seen about 1/8th of the product, and now that Im perusing it online there are so many more pieces that I love. Check out the full lighting collection there is even a gold heart lamp shade.
In general PillowFortis full of whimsical, happy, fun textiles, accessories, and decor that is easy to throw around and certainly cute enough for adults to love, too. The color palette is fresh and modern, and the patterns channel our inner tween (flamingo bedding, panda wall mounts). Its less nursery and more kids room or playroom (we are doing a makeover with all of it soon, so stay tuned). Charlie inserted himself into a couple shots, like the proper blogger child that he is (we are in the showing less of his face in social media phase these days, by the way).
That pineapple pillow is ridiculous. As you can see its kid-tested by Charlie Henderson himself, and it has his stamp of toddler approval.
We threw that gold unicorn lamp into Elliots room (reveal coming soon!). Its the perfect side table scale for a kids room (or could certainly go on the shelf of a unicorn-loving grown-up). It comes in white too if you cant handle the magic of both gold and unicorn in one lamp.
Elliots room is mostly green with accents of a soft pink, so that unicorn head is gosh darn perfect. We will be ordering more pieces now that the collection is available (we just had a couple samples), so youll start to see it peppered in a lot of our nurseries we are designing. But you should snag what you want as things might sell out. This line is permanent its like another Threshold or Room Essentials, so while new pieces will be introduced every season, its not a collaboration that will go away. Instead its going to grow, and grow, and grow.
Now for the reveal of the whole PillowFort Collection.
Charlie loves that bearand sleeps with it in his crib, along with 15 other stuffed animals. I dont know how he actually lies down, but its not a battle Im fighting these days. My mom (who had 6 kids) told me good advice once that we should only really fight battles that are going to matter in 5 years. When Charlie pushes or steals toys from another kid YES, we make a point to talk about it and work through his thoughts, apologize, blah blah. But Im not concerned with the fact that his crib looks like one of those carnival games where you grab the prize with a big claw. Check out whole collection here.
He is rather obsessed with dinosaurs lately, and makes us each crawl around and act like them every night dictating who is a stegosaurus, and who is a brontosaurus . We recently went to an event at the Natural History Museum where he was introduced to a few puppet dinosaurs which both TERRIFIED him and solidified his obsession. Point being I want that string art and that dinosaur head. Whole collection here.
I love that bean bag chair and wish we had a spot for it. It comes in mint, too and is going to grace many a playroom in America this year. Also I didnt know that Zebra was an option, but man its cute.
For the Pacific Northwest in all of us. I love the styling of the road on the floor its a pretty fun idea to do with your kids, right? Charlie makes us sit down and race each other (as if we are in mini cars) and he yells READY, SET, GO! and randomly dictates the winner. Shop the Explorer Escapeshere.
I can imagine most little girls (even up to tween age) would love that butterfly shelf for their tiny collections, and that side table is extremely cute. Also I didnt see this bunny nightlight before, but its so cute and Im going to get it for Elliots room. See everything from theFloral Field collection.
This is probably my favorite shot from the catalogue, as those chairs, table, and canopy are so good. The last ten years has really been a big emergence of cute kids decor, certainly, but its so great that Target has joined the ranks and made it wildly more affordable. See the whole Marvelous Manor collection(and please get this canopy).
Peek the whole Ocean Oasis collection here.
See the whole Stellar Station collection.
Check out the whole Tropical Treehouse collection.
Its happy and fun for both us, and our kids. And most importantly its available at our favorite national retailer (and online), Target.
When I made this roundup I had only seen some of the collection so if I were to do it now, after seeing every single piece online, I would add 20 things. So dont just go off of what my favorites are below, check out everything here. Its all so very good.
