It’s All In The Details (part 1 of 4)

When Target contacted me about shopping and writing about it’s new home line, Threshold, I was happy to participate. I already frequent Target, for a variety of products, including home decor. I love to score quality items at a great price. Having a mix in your home of both high and low purchases is really where it’s at.

I wanted to give my son’s bathroom a quick and inexpensive update. Inspired by the seaside, I thought the beach would make a great theme for a boy of any age. When I spotted these fun green and blue global hand towels, I knew they would work perfectly by adding the dash of color this neutral room needed. I added another solid hand towel in “trout stream” underneath, to give it a little bit more oomph.

I also got this great looking soap dispenser. At only $9.99, I couldn’t resist replacing the Sponge Bob Square Pants plastic bottle of hand soap, that was previously there. Finally, I grabbed this cute little tumbler, just to complete the whole look. I really like how these small purchases (only about $31.00) added up to such a stylish upgrade for my son’s bathroom vanity.

  6. what a fun assignment, I've seen the ads, which of course are targetabulous! I love your choices, especially your idea to layer with the "trout stream" blue towel. It's amazing how a few little items can transform a room.
