Currently Loving / West Elm Edition

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

If you've seen my old home tour, you should not be surprised by my love of all things West Elm. That's where I purchased my desk, desk chair, shelves, rug, mirror, throw, lacquer tray, and several other items that you'll see throughout my home. I love mixing old and new and try not to overdo it with one brand, but when it comes to West Elm, it's hard to hold back. Great pricing, quality, and style, + an understanding of the importance of gold, grey, and lacquer.

And let's not forget that the brand has one of the greatest Creative Directors of all time–the gracious Vanessa Holden, who welcomed The Everygirl into the West Elm offices for a career feature on TEG.

I recently purchased my dining chairs and coffee table from West Elm and have my eye on a few other things to help me finish my home in preparation for home tour #2. Number one on the list? The Souk rug (below). And the gold flatware. Oh, that gorgeous gold flatware. I've only posted about it 27 million times. I am pretty sure I need it.


 What are your two favorite items on this list?

  2. Love the plates + flatware. In fact, I have been eyeing the flatware for some time. Still thinking about it! I have so many other house decor to purchase that I continue to put this purchase off.

  5. The flatware and plates are my favorites! We are entertaining for Thanksgiving this year, and I think both would be so elegant on the dining room table. I've been looking, but I haven't seen gold-plated silverware as nice as this set.

  7. The throw and the flatware! I am 110% hooked on getting a faux fur blanket this winter, and ever since I snagged 4 place settings of gold flatware in a One Kings Lane sale I can't get enough of it!

  13. I have the Souk rug and love it! My only suggestion is be sure you have a good vac because it sheds like crazy for a couple of months.
