A Trip To West Elm

 Yesterday I was in the mood to do a little sight seeing- of home decor. 
So the twins and I hit up West Elm to see what was new.

I don't know why I haven't bought this branch yet. I look at it every time I go here. 

I loved everything about this gallery wall- the mix of white and silver frames, the mirrors mixed in with the pictures, and most of all the fact that the whole thing had been installed on top of flattened cardboard boxes. So cool. 

I love this drum pendant- it's a really good size AND a really good price! 

I also liked this new mercury glass chandelier- it's very dramatic in person. 

I wanted to bring these two home with me. 

And I almost did bring this guy home. Almost. 

He'll be on my Christmas list. 

I've gotta say it's not easy fitting a double stroller through this place!

Look in the mirror and you'll see me and one of my little shopping buddies-
 I loved how the books were displayed on this wall!

I didn't come home from my little excursion empty handed-

I'll show you guys on Monday what I got! Spoiler alert: it's something to fill the empty bowl on the bottom shelf in the dining room!


  1. Great Post! I have always loved visits to West Elm! Have picked up many a find!
    The stroller picture beats them all.
    Now, what did you buy for that bowl?????????????

    1. Thanks Patty! haha you'll find out Monday..... :)

  2. Sounds like a fun trip! I always managed to get a little something-something when I am at West Elm. Love those silver picture frames, they look ultra stylish!

    I have seen very similar branches at Marshalls/ Homegoods and they are quite affordable at around $15/$16 each. Other places are twice/ thrice the price, I think, so keep an eye whenever you are at Marshalls/ Homegoods.


    1. Thanks for the tip about the branch Jessie! That's what's always stopped me from buying it, because this one is (I think) around $40, so I just can't bring myself to spend that on a tree branch. I'll check for one at Home Goods next time I'm there!

  3. Lucky duck. How I wish we had a West Elm here!
