Linens with a Latin Beat

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Sami Hayek (baby brother of actress Salma) has a new limited-edition collection of home furnishings, accessories, stationery and bedding at Target. Internationally known for his sleek, environmentally-conscious creations, Hayak (a native of Mexico) brings a Latin vibe and clean mid-century modern lines to his design (as is evident here with his brightly-colored bed linens, pictured).

Well come to find out, most of the items in his collection were designed with dorm rooms in mind. Or in other words: aimed at small spaces, as well as small budgets. The chic sheets, comforters and other furnishings all feature a palette of industrial gray, fuchsia, chocolate and lime green, in bold graphics and packaging meant to be recycled or reused.
