It’s safe to say that Target Home Style Expert Emily Henderson is a certifiable Pillowfort pro. After all, she’s done her fair share of makeovers featuring the adorable kids’ home collection—remember that sweet Green Wedding Shoes nursery reveal?

And now, just in time for spring, we refreshed our Pillowfort collection with more than 100 new pieces including décor, bedding, lighting, furniture and more. With six new themes to mix and match—Explorer, Modern Hero, Mermaid, Surf, Princess and Fiesta—we asked Emily to share her top five tips for sprucing up a child’s room using the new collection:

Mix Fun and Function

“Incorporate playful lamps, like the Cactus or Lightning Bolt Table Lamp, and unexpected shelving solutions, like the Surf Board Shelf. Style the Colorful Triangles and Never Stop Exploring throw pillows on the playroom floor or up against a bedroom wall to create a reading nook or additional seating.”

Incorporate Stylish Storage

“There are so many great storage baskets in this collection that are practical and cute. One of my favorites is the Fringe Coil Rope Bins.These are so easy to move from playroom to bedroom, and you can fit a surprising amount of toys in the larger one when you are trying to tidy up.”

Don’t Forget the Walls

“Animal wall heads, LED wall lights and shadow boxes are just a few fun wall accessories you can use to update a wall. The Llama Wall Head and LED Neon Lightning Bolt from the collection are two of my favorites.”

Mix-and-Match Patterns and Themes

“You can absolutely mix themes and bold patterns in a child’s room as long as you keep a consistent color palette and also include some neutrals to tie the space together. Check out how I styled Charlie’s big kid room before we sold our first home for inspiration!”

Layer, Layer, Layer

“Make the room feel cozy by layering pillows on the bed and textured throws over a couch or ottoman. Kids spend a lot of time sitting on the floor too, so try styling the collection’s lion and zebra rugs, or the shag rugs on top of each other for extra padding.”
