While everyone else is busy planning last-minute Memorial Day getaways or sulking over the final season of Game of Thrones, we’re quietly plotting our shopping approach to Nordstrom’s biggest event of the year: the Half-Yearly SaleConsider this your pre-summer pick-me-up.

From now through June 2, Nordstrom customers can save up to 50 percent off everything from apparel to home goods. Amid big-name retailers like Le Creuset and Anthropologie, shoppers will also discover a slew of bespoke brands in the clearance section. The deals are gold, but the decor is even better: Sorbet-colored bowls and postmodern table toppers are just two on-trend finds we’re loving.

To save you the headache of sifting through 15 pages of products, we went ahead and did the heavy lifting for you. Here are seven ultra-chic items we found hiding out in Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale.

If you can’t bear to see another floral centerpiece suffer…

We’re still not over the second wave of Memphis madness. You don’t have to be an all-out maximalist or carefree decorator to want to replace your dining table centerpiece with this standing mobile.

If the foot of the bed could use some extra umph…

Lay the groundwork for cozy Sunday mornings with a rock-solid rug that delivers both pattern and texture.

If you’ve made a habit of collecting oversize branches…

Fill this creamy white vessel with found branches or wispy wildflowers for a fresh take on spring arrangements.

If your raggedy bath mat has seen better days…

Currently in the middle of a deep KonMari bathroom clean? While you’re at it, consider replacing the bath mat you’ve had since college with this plush fringe rug.

If your keys could use a staycation…

We’ve been lusting after Concrete Cat’s eye-popping ceramics for quite some time now. So when we learned this psychedelic accessory was 60 percent off, we knew it was a win-win for the entryway.

If you want your book nook to feel like a summer sunset…

When you return from the water with your beach read in hand, cuddle up with this tonal pink blanket as the sun goes down.

If your cookbook is filled with nostalgic recipes…

With this old-school mixer at your side, you won’t have to feel guilty about making Mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies every night for dessert.
