Emily Henderson wasn't kidding when she said she has an engaged audience. Whether it's weighing in on which tile she should use in her mountain fixer upper or telling her how to shape her "sperm eyebrows" (yes, that's a thing she dealt with), she's seen it all.
And often, it's the aspect of a post that you could never anticipate that causes all the commotion. Case in point: Emily's latest 'gram, which highlights how she's styled some of Target's new fall home decor. The room highlights a style the designer's calling "updated classic," featuring how traditional pieces with clean lines—and the occasional earthy and edgy accents—can make a room feel timeless, not old school. But it's the tree in the back corner that nabbed everyone's attention, including HGTV star Joanna Gaines.
"Beautiful space!! How do I get that tree in my life..." she commented, right in line with dozens of others all asking the same thing.
It's so unlike the typical fiddle leaf fig or cacti shown in room reveals that it immediately turned heads. And, naturally, since this is a post about Target, had people wondering if they should beeline it to the chain to see if they could find one, too.
Sadly, you won't find the tall, spindly tree there (which several fans identified as an acacia tree), and if you're looking to copy the look, you might be disappointed. Emily's upfront about sourcing all of her finds, and in the full room reveal post on her blog, she mentions that it's meant to live outdoors, not in. So adding one to your living room would just be a painful exercise in witnessing the sad, slow death of your plant—and we all experience enough of that with ones meant to be kept inside.
"We took some editorial freedoms," Emily added in a comment. Aside from adding visual interest to the room, it also helped underscore a design tip the stylist was sharing: That natural elements—like leaves, branches and wood tones—can give a space character and warmth.
If you are desperate for a similar look (and down with faux-tree), you could always try this , or add a few branches to your decor.
