West Elm is quickly becoming my favorite store, which is a huge statement considering how I feel about Crate and Barrel. Just lately, I love everything in West Elm. So when I received an
email and a catalog telling me about their new arrivals, I drooled. Twice. Once while at my computer and once while standing at my counter. I’m all about technology and everything and would be the first to tell you that I’d rather look at something online than buy a magazine (ie- all things wedding related) but boy, that catalog was dreamy. So I obviously felt compelled to give you a list of my favorites!
1. Slipcovered Slipper Chair, $349 for chair, $69 for slipcover
I’m generally not one for skirted slipcovers, but for some reason I love this one. It’s a nice mix of traditional and modern. Plus I love that print. A cheaper option would be to buy a much more affordable slipper chair at Target or HomeGoods and just use the West Elm slipcover (if it fits, I have done zero research).
2. Pebble Side Table, $149
I am just intrigued by this thing, part of me likes that it’s asymmetrical and if it wasn’t, I probably would have browsed right past it. It says its for indoor/outdoor use and I do like it, but I’d probably love it outside.
3. Stripe Duvet Cover, $59 for queen
Thick stripes? Check. Gray/white color scheme? Check. This thing is right up my alley.
4. Spring Floral Duvet, $59 for queen
While we’re on the topic of bedding, which just so happens to be one of my favorite topics, I love this set as well. I love a white themed bed and this has just the right amount of color to add interest. Never mind that awesome floral graphic.
5. Metal Squirrel, $29
Because he’s cute, and I love a woodland animal. But at $29?? I’ll wait for him to go on sale…
6. Textured Pure Vases, $29-$39
I’d like to add some more white accessories to the office to keep my little owl company and I love the texture in these.
7.Porcelain Tumblers, $8
I love a nice little find for under $10. The bold patterns on these make them a nice little accent piece for pencils and pens, toothbrushes or as a little vase.
8. Modern Weave Headboard, $379 for queen
This is something that caught my eye in the catalog and if I had $400 hanging around, I’d totally buy it to compliment my future, stenciled, bedroom. Hm this list was too long for a top 5, but too short for a top 10. So I leave you with my top 8! 🙂
