Holly Becker is constantly searching out beautiful design and decor for her blog. So, what does she adore right now? Here are some of her current faves:

1. I can't stop swooning over the Kirin sofa by Oly in antiqued white. The clean linen, combined with modern lines, nailhead trim, wooden base, and "look at me" high back, makes for a piece I'd imagine owning for years. It's also extremely comfortable. Best part, you can try before you buy because it's on display over at Hudson in the South End. olystudio.com/products/seating/kirin_sofa.html

2. Trends come and go, but the Chinoiserie bedding (right) from Dwell Studio is one I see staying in vogue for a long time. It's clean and modern yet feminine and great for bird watchers. tinyurl.com/3alsoq

3. Angela Adams rugs. What else I can say that isn't already obvious? They're gorgeous, especially Mammy in blue. You can find them at South End shop Urban Living Studio. tinyurl.com/2hezq6

4. I can't get enough of the photography of Alicia Bock. Her layered prints (like my favorite, "The Date") evokes memories of the carnivals in Germany that I love to visit with my husband. tinyurl.com/ypxuha

5. Fabric! I'm a huge fan of Amy Butler and her fabric collections - they effortlessly work in a myriad of decors and the colors and patterns can't help but make you feel energetic and happy. You can find some of her prints locally at the Fabric Place (fabricplace.com) but I also suggest visiting SoHo Purl (purlsoho.com) online for Amy Butler and many others (and they're not to the trade only). amybutlerdesign .com

6. Pendant lighting that isn't typical: these crochet pendant lights from Rian Rae that are both affordable and unique. tinyurl.com/24trf6

7. The "Sunshine Cosmos" pillow from Hable Construction boasts modern blooms in sunny yellow that is feminine without being fussy. I imagine these on a white sofa or displayed on a bench seat below a window. hableconstruction.com

8. I recently purchased the LAX coffee table from MASH Studios (available online at Design Public) because it has discreet storage, gorgeous wood, and a white aluminum top that is both stylish and relaxed - I won't have to stress when friends forget to use a coaster! tinyurl.com/2wcdea
