Feathers fly high in Target fall home goods

Target continues to live up to its name by hitting the mark this season with a finely feathered collection of home products that bring the outside in for the winter. Feathers—as well as their design pals, arrows and birds—are featured in everything from stools to pillows and candleholders to picture frames.

No Juju hats, and that suits me fine. I’m a LOT tired of seeing those and all forms of dyed feathers. I take my feather “straight”—from nature, that is. Even when reproduced in textiles I prefer a naturalistic representation.

Feathers = the new flowers

I’m seeing more and more native bird feathers displayed singly in a bud vase...

...or grouped like a bouquet in a larger vessel. If you’re observant, you can find your own in your yard or at a park throughout the spring, summer and fall.

If you have pets, make sure you display your feathers somewhere they can’t reach. I learned the hard way and have rescued many a feather from the mouth of my kitty, Maisie, who thinks it is either lunch or a toy; either way, she chews it to bits.


Give your feathers the Midas touch



When not “au naturel,” feathers these days get decked out in gold, usually tipped. Spray paint, paint pens, or the traditional brush and bottle all work. How about nail polish? My guess is yes. Copper is big this fall, too, and I think it would look gorgeous on feathers.




These golden beauties from the Nate Berkus Collection for Target will help extend that “golden feather” look throughout your room or home. Follow the links for details:




And this collection of pillows in fall tones mixed with gold would lend an elegant air to my charcoal-gray sofa and brown leather club chairs. Plus, they would be Maisie-proof! Follow the links for details:


Fancy flight or flights of fancy?

I could entertain both in this office, couldn’t you? Not only is there an over-size triptych of a feather silhouette, but the chandelier is working a feather motif as well.




Even Target is here to help with some handsome office accessories to get me flying in the right direction. Follow the links for details:

Rack 'em up to make fur fly!


Springfield Interior Designers & Decorators/Heather Freeman Design Co.

These two arrows are simply crossed and made a part of a larger wall display, which adds variety to the artwork of different shapes and sizes.


Portland Interior Designers & Decorators/Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

Three arrows hung horizontally above this bed with points alternating work with the bright striped pillows and geometric rug to create a bumped-up BoHo southwest look.





Target’s Metal Arrow/Wall Décor x 2 or 3 would give you a similar look as these rooms in a snap. The 28-inch long arrows sport an antiqued-gold finish.

The throw, pillow and stool by Nate Berkus would cozy up most any room, including the ones above. The pieces are described as black faux fur, but I’ve seen them in the store, and they have a feathery look to them. The colorway includes shades of dark brown, ivory and gray as well as black. The throw is machine washable, and all three pieces are uber-soft to the touch.

The stool is to-die-for cute and just may find its way into my living room!


Arrows of a feather framed together

Here’s a set of six arrows framed and hung over a double bed in a rustic bedroom with a subdued palette. The arrows repeat the geometrics in the textiles and help reinforce a masculine vibe.

Each of these twin beds get a full dozen arrows framed overhead. The colors in the arrow shafts and fletchings carry the beachy colors of the pillows up onto the creamy walls. The gray-and-white coverlets stay in the background because of their neutral palette, but their massive geometric design echoes the feathers and the arrowheads for a unified yet edgy look.


Leave no feather unruffled



My favorite way to display arrows is the simplest—grouped in a vase to show off their colorful and craftsmanship. These arrows remind me of these more colorful feather and arrow-themed pillows in Target’s fall stock.
