If you really want to know how Nate Berkus feels about design, look no further than his wardrobe. “I keep an eye on trends but always stay true to what I know works for me,” Berkus wrote in a blog post on his site. Lately, that would be a ton of ochre and terracotta, which is why we weren’t surprised to find the colors playing a prominent role in his new fall bedding collection for Target’s Project 62 line.
To really drive home the point that fashion and home decor go hand in hand, Berkus took a stroll through the retailer’s apparel section and captured the whole thing on camera. “This is the color of the season,” he announces in the video, pointing to a pair of rust-colored gloves. The hue, which Target calls maple, has an almost golden shimmer to it, like a sunset hitting a canopy of auburn-tinged trees.
The designer fully embraced the desert hue with channel-tufted pillows and woven quilts, while also peppering in black and white—a classic pairing he refers to as seasonless. Berkus admits there’s no right or wrong way to make a bed, but he revealed his personal strategy in an Instagram video. “I like to start with Euro shams in the back,” he says. Next, he opts for two simple pillowcases, followed by two decorative shams, then a lumbar cushion to top it all off. Channel similar seasonal splendor with these four finds from his new line:
