Friday faves - West Elm

Last weekend I met up with a friend for coffee on a beautiful sunny morning. It was a bit cool, but the sun was warm and just the touch of spring we needed. I was on a mission to get to West Elm to pick up a pillow for a friend of mine - I had called ahead to put it on hold and to my horror they messed it up and put the wrong one on hold! Luckily a guy was able to find the last pillow that they had in the style I (my friend) was dying to get.  Here it is:
Water Stripe Pillow Cover
Isn't that just gorgeous? 100% silk, to top it off. My friend has the greatest eye for design and scoped this out. 

After getting the pillow I could refocus on whatever else was in the store. The first time I ever went to West Elm I was in dining room mode and was extremely disappointed with the quality of the items there.  My judgement was clouded because we were looking for a solid wood dining table (of which they had none). I wrote them off for a bit, but then got over it and realized that they do have some great accessories.

Here are some of my faves from my most recent visit:

I have yet to step foot in that store although I'm dying to. We don't have one in Van. Love your friend's pillow!!! I love all the accessories I've seen but isn't it disappointing when their furniture is crap? Have a great weekend!!

Hi Heather!

I love West Elm - I wish we had them here in the Philippines. The pieces above are all quite pretty. I especially love the Jason Polan trays and the hive vases.

Have a good week! :)
