Tired of staring at the white walls in your home office? Tabitha Brown’s second collection with Target is filled with enough color to boost your productivity. The mega-retailer plans to release four limited-edition collections with Brown that promote joy all year round. The second (and newest) collaboration is all about elevating your home office. What better place to find joy than the one you’re likely sitting in eight hours a day? Known for her irresistible charm and inspiring tips on social media, it’s no surprise that you’ll find yourself easily drawn to the delightful collection. It’s a reflection of her magnetic personality!
“When you see color, you see happiness,” Brown tells House Beautiful. “I wanted this collection to have bold colors, bold patterns, and affirmations to bring joy. Remind yourself, ‘You know what? I’m alright.'”
The exciting new launch includes decorative accents, furniture, office organization must-haves, and even a few pup-approved items decked in bright hues and bold patterns—there’s something for everyone in need of a pick-me-up in their office. Customers can find eye-catching notebooks with encouraging affirmations or (a personal favorite) citrus-shaped paperweights that inspire you to make the most out of any situation. There are even special finds to send as the perfect gift to your favorite hostess! “I send gifts to friends that encourage them to document their journey,” shares Brown. “I also want them to remember that I am there with them.”
If you don’t have a separate room to make working from home possible, you can makeshift an impromptu office by setting boundaries—even if it’s the corner of your dining room table. “You need to find your middle ground. Set the space in a way that you know you’re working, but you can’t be too comfortable. Be mindful not to take work out from your designated space,” the actress explains.
So what does Brown’s own home office look like? Well, in addition to happy colors, her space centers on putting cherished memories first, whether it’s through lighting a candle or framed photos of loved ones. “It reminds me of my ‘why,'” she says. “Knowing the conversations that I had with my mom over the years before she passed away…I think back to them when I get tired or frustrated.”
Love knowing what your favorite stars are up to? Let’s take a closer look.
“Comfort is huge for me,” she underscores. “Something can be cute, but if it’s not comfortable—honey, goodbye! I love colors and patterns so if I can have the best of both worlds? Now, that’s joy personified.”
We all love to upgrade our spaces with a candle—and Brown is no exception. “I’m big on candles,” she says. “I like to set intentions while working and have memories installed while I work.” Another key element of Brown’s office? “Of course, I need a desk with a big drawer for snacks,” she laughs.
Jill Sando, Target’s Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer, states, “We’re thrilled to continue this partnership and introduce our guests to an assortment of office décor and essentials that are a true reflection of Tabitha’s joyful disposition. We hope this next collection serves as a source of inspirational, inclusive, and affordable style for all.”
Here’s an opportunity to create an environment where you can thrive and go about your day-to-day routine with the most amazing intention. You can officially upgrade your home office for less as prices range from $5 to $300, while most items are under $30! The collection is available to shop on August 6th in-person and online while supplies last. “When you get that one thing you love, you have to say it came from ‘Targé’ and not just Target,” she laughs.
