Let’s play a little word association game – I’m going to name a store and then list out all the words that come to mind when I think of that store.
College dorm-room, overpriced hoodies, hipster clothing, weird coffee table books, knick-knacks, faux-vintage, mustache themed everything, slogan t-shirts.
Ahhhh, I feel better – now here’s the thing… the other day I posted about that cool accordion side table from Urban Outiftters that was $75 compared to similar tables that retailed in the hundreds. That led me to do a little investigating of my own, and I’ve come to find out, Urban Outfitters has grown up a bit since the last time I popped in for an over-priced (but super soft) v-neck t-shirt. Turns out, they actually have some pretty FABULOUS home accessories, and it’s cheap! I would never have put Urban Outfitters in the category of “great home decor” but they seriously are!
Aside from this fabulous table, here are some of my favorite finds!!
TABLES & STORAGE:
Awesome, right?? I am especially loving the owl garden stool and the gold hexagon side table. I probably won’t pull the trigger on the owl, only becuase it seems to be a little too trendy, and doesn’t seem like something I’ll love 6 months from now. Also, not that we are in the market for a console, but the Draper style console is really cool – something I think my sister would be really into. Her house is full of mid-century pieces, and this little guy would fit right in (in my humble opinion).
Both of these have great lines, and details that I LOOVVEEE. You all know how obsessed I am with nail-head trim, so both these beauties are A-OK in my book.
CHAIRS AND SOFAS:
Let me start by saying that I probably wouldn’t put these sofas or the chaise in my living room. And by probably, I mean, never. The day to night sofa (pictured in a heathered brown) would be great in an office-guestroom combo, since it does convert into a sleeper sofa. And the chaise and Gramercy sofa are so overly feminine – I see those living in a huge walk in closet, dressing room, or bathroom. They might even be good for an entry-way as well, but not so much for the living room.
I’d be thrilled to have any three of those chairs in our living room – the hot pink Madeline Chair especially jumps out at me. That shocking pink for some reason doesn’t look that “girly” although I’m sure Kris would disagree with me on that. Luckily, also comes in a ton of other colors.
A few of my other favorites were the tan, aqua, and navy:
I think this chair might even get added onto my growing list of potential side chair candidates for our living room…
All in all, I’d say I’ve totally changed my mind about Urban Outfitters…
Loved reading your blog! My interior design taste keeps changing, one minute I love modern, next minute I've purchased traditional pine wardrobes! I'm not sure I'll ever make my mind up!
You and me both! But I think maybe it's a good thing. Eclectic tastes always make for the most interesting rooms that feel “collected” instead of “staged”… at least that's what I tell myself 🙂
Thanks for reading!
