Target Ipanema Sheets


A few of you wrote in to inquire about the print I posted this morning so I didn’t want to leave you hanging. It’s actually a Queen sized sheet set in 100% cotton from Target. I didn’t intend to purchase bedding at Target, in fact, I didn’t even visit that side of the home department for fear of being lured in to throw pillow heaven, never to return. Of course, Target knows that there are many design geeks who shop there and that most of us avoid certain sections for financial reasons. Marketing is a clever beast. They now expose us to home items (like bedding) in random locations in the store, for instance, I found my sheets on display at the end of an aisle near picture frames. Those sneaky snakes.

Of course, when I laid eyes on the ipanema sheets in various shades of gorgeous green, I instantly grabbed them, looking around the store like a squirrel defending a nut (or in this case a nut defending some sheets). As I slowly upzipped (shame!) the package to run my finger along the fabric, I was transported into soft, buttery bliss all for only $29.99. I was in shock at both the price and the quality. It’s not 500 thread count bedding, so for those of you that have the budget for fine linen, you should stop reading right about now as I’m sure this post is making your cringe because yes, I purchased the inferior Target bedding.

By the way, you can’t purchase the set online yet, so you’ll need to contact your local Target to see if they stock this pattern. Also, if you like it but aren’t in the market for new bedding, the sheets have a good weight to them and they’re quite thick – they’d be useful on a DIY project. I’m sure you have a few DIY tricks up your sleeve. A new shower curtain, window treatments, tablecloth or pillows, perhaps?

Note: For those of you outside of the U.S., I’m really sorry for posting again about Target today. I know it breaks your heart. Keep writing to Target to demand they go global and start shipping outside of North America. :)

    I know! Target is ruthless in their attempt to take all of money away from me! I saw these sheets and immediately thought of my favorite textile firm Galbraith and Paul…check them out at galbraithandpaul.com

    PS Holly, where’s the love?

    Oh yes, I have been known to buy wonderfully printed tableclothes from Target and make roman shades for my windows!
    I think my local Target has those sheets – and knowing Target – they should be on….. clearance..right…about…now! :)
