West Elm love

Have you ever been to a West Elm store? Living here in Madison, we have access to lots of great culture and shopping, but let's face it, due to our size, we just don't get all of the "good stuff" like in the  nearby large cities. Yesterday my client consult was in the Chicago area and while it was "quick-in, quick-out," we managed to find time for a stop at the nearby West Elm store. In fact it was such a whirlwind visit that I did not have time to get my camera out of my bag and snap photos! Let me just say this, I could have spent hours there! It was fun to see many of the pieces I have been eying on line, in person. The "kitchen tweaking" project I am working on involves an eating area and opens up into the family room, so our work extended that far. Here are a couple of the goodies we are incorporating into these spaces....

Loving the fresh look of the classic Windsor chair.... we'll have these paired with a great table my client found on Craigslist for $20 (of course it needs a little face lift, but for 20 bucks, we couldn't pass it up)!

This little bath mat may just be perfect for in front of the sink.... we'll see!

Basic but beautiful, the ivory pillow will show up in the family room.

We also brought a sample of this rug home, it is a gorgeous steel gray kilim rug and should be perfect in the foyer.
Yes, we were "coloring outside of the lines," our "tweaking" extended to other rooms on the first floor and involved moving lots of furniture, re-hanging pictures, moving lamps and accessories and the like.  Why not? We had a blast and were able to accomplish an amazing amount in a few hours, I can't wait to share the "before & after" photos.

In other news, because I know you are wondering, my "Indy race car computer" is one more day away from being ready to use.... I am hanging in there (kind of....).

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design
If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.

There is a West Elm in Center City Philadelphia but I've only been there once. We only live about 25 minutes outside of the city, but I just don't find the time to get in as much as I used to. Now I'm going to put that on my to-do list. I've been admiring the fresh look of that Windsor chair so I'm excited to see it in your client's home. I have a kilim rug and a pillow from West Elm and I'm very happy with both of them. Looking forward to the reveal!

The catalog and website are indulgences, the store even more so. So many great items to choose from. Kilims are stunning in colors and pattern..this one is quite striking.
