What's on my Radar: Current Loves

Here's another edition of Current Loves, which this month is focused on home goods.  I can say that we are about 90% unpacked (with the exception with some paperwork) and ready to start decorating!  I've had my eye on a few things and I'm excited to show you how I'd like to decorate a few bare rooms.

Urban Outfitters Charlotte Sofa

This is the exact kind of sofa I want for our living room.  At the moment it's being occupied by our old apartment couch, but we're getting rid of it for a new, colorful one.  Since we have dark hardwood floors, I really want to add a lot of color to this room.  And what does that better than a statement sofa?

Ruche Loyal Bull Dog Bookends

Before Kevin and I adopted our chihuahuas, all he ever wanted was a bulldog.  And while they are cute, I was not ready for a 70 pound dog in an apartment!  Thankfully, I have the best husband ever and he let me adopt whatever dog I wanted.  I guess the least I can do is get him some bulldog bookends.  Literally, it's probably the least I can do :)

Urban Outfitters Waterfall Ruffle Duvet Cover

I've wanted this duvet for years!  Unfortunately, Kevin tends to think this might be too girly.  When it comes to our bedroom he definitely has the most opinions about our bedding.  I'm guessing this will be on my wish list for a long time!

Target Lucy Upholstered Chair

Okay, this technically isn't on my wishlist because it's already mine.  A very good friend of mine purchased this for me as a late Christmas/birthday/wedding/housewarming gift.  I have yet to get it in the mail though, but I'm absolutely looking forward to it.  I'm going to put this in one of our spare bedrooms, which is being completely decorated by me :)

Urban Home Jeweled Amber Mirror

I definitely have a thing for vintage inspired pieces.  My home is filled with vintage light fixtures (which I refuse to change out) and I think this mirror would compliment the theme.  This could really go in any room, but I would love to have this in my den.  It's where we spend the most time after all.

Where do you like to shop for home decor?  I'd love some suggestions if you have them!




  1. Oh my gosh I am in the same boat about that duvet, I've loved it for so so so so long but Richard says it too girly! I'm not ready to give up on it though it's so gorgeous!

  2. I am in love with that sofa.


  3. I love that bedding! Now if only I could convince my boyfriend to like it...

  4. Now I really need to come and visit again. 'Cause all of this looks beautiful.

  5. Love that couch from UO (actually I love almost every couch from UO)! Such lovely picks! :)

    Also, yes! Let's definitely pencil in a date! :)

  7. I'm loving those bookends! I'll be building a new bookshelf this summer... maybe I need some of those to accessorize it. :0)

    I just found your blog through Midwest Muse! I'll be following on BlogLovin'!


  8. Oh my goodness I LOVE this post, I extra appreciate because I hopefully will have some exciting moving news of my own by the end of the day (FINGERS CROSSED)! I have been wanting the waterfall duvet for such a long time too, it is amazing! I also LOVE that couch, these are all amazing finds and can't wait to see more of your place!

  10. Love the couch! I love gently used pieces from the thrift shop that you can repaint or reupholster and give it new life. That's my favorite :)

  11. Wow! I love the style! <3


  12. In Italy unfortunately you can almost only shop at Ikea if you don't want to spend too much.. If i can suggest u something is to watch as many room tours as you can on you tube. some girls have such beautiful rooms and they always know the best forniture shops. aka juicystar07

  21. Decorating seems like so much fun! The bright couch is such a great color and the mirror looks so cool :)

  22. So many cute things, but I especially love those bulldog book ends! Bulldogs really are the sweetest dogs. All their inherent health problems are made up by their personalities. They're not all 70 pounds either! Mine never was over 52 lbs. Anyyyway.
    I need bulldog bookends.


I read and appreciate every single comment!
