West Elm + Etsy
February 27, 2012
This weekend seemed to fly by quicker than ever and I ended up asleep in front of the Oscars last night, completely exhausted. I had a fantastic weekend though, on Saturday I treated myself to some retail therapy by making a special trip to West Elm – it’s over an hour away – but I made a trip due to Victoria’s announcement that there was a West Elm + Etsy event, so I met up with my blog buddy Courtney from Courtney Out Loud. We mingled with a few Etsy sellers and had a lot of fun checking out all the new goods in the store.
I’m loving their recycled glass bottle collection this year, all those watery blues and greens look fantastic in a group together.
It’s been around awhile, but I’m still loving the graphic bull’s eye pillow and that carved wood side table together. That multi faceted wood ball is such a fantastic decorative object but I can’t find it online so now I wish I’d grabbed one at the store.
I’m always drawn to the white ceramics and this years are so pretty, especially that large porcelain hurricane.
Here are some of my other favorites this season . . .
1. Duck feet napkins 2. White wall clock (only in stores) 3. Battani stripe pillows 4. Alphabet trays 5. Honeycomb bath accessories 6. Modern bowls 7. Battani stripe rugs 8. Stripe favorite throw 9. Retro Ikat pillow cover 10. Carved side table 11. Zig zag bath mat 12. Flower print tray 13. Sahara Ikat pillow cover
I bought one of those fun items above, will show you soon!
I bought the Devour tea towel isn’t it charming? Also the ‘stripes make everything better’ towel for a friend.
These linen textiles are a unique way to wrap a housewarming or hostess gift.
I also finished up a pedestal table makeover, that’s coming up later this week. Have you spied any new favorites at West Elm or on Etsy lately? What was your latest round of retail therapy?
