West Elm Shopping Spree!!!

Went to West Elm this weekend with my brother to pick out furniture for his new pad!
I have shopped their internet site but never been to the store, it is amazing!!!  The product is fantastic, the service is stellar (thanks Zack!), and the prices are unbelievable!  
We were at the location downtown Chicago on North Ave. if you are local you should definitely stop in. 

  Here's what we got!!!

The round lacquer tray in white which will sit on the ottoman to double as a coffee table...

and this Mongolian Lamb pillow in Stone White...

The Chunky Tassel Throw in poppy for a pop of color...

Two of these Scoop Back Bar/Counter stools in white for his kitchen counter...

And finally this Bookcase/Console in white for his entryway along with four canvas storage bins  to sit below in woven slate...

His place is going to look amazing!!!  
Definitely not your average bachelor pad :)

Chanel Lamp???

Saw this today at Peachtree Place in Northfield while I was walking to lunch, assuming it's Chanel but the salesperson was not sure? Priced at $325 I'm not sure it could be since Chanel is so pricey.  I think I like it--do you?  

I could see it in an office or on a vanity in a formal dressing room.  
There's just something about those double C's I love...

Although my pool does have cup holders!!! LOL

Happy Weekend!!!

This just makes me happy....
Love the paint color, love the mirror, love the chairs, love the pillows, love the rug!!!

The mirror looks a lot like this one from Wisteria and only $299 not bad for such a STUNNER!

Gray Skies Are Gonna Clear Up...

I L.O.V.E. gray almost as much as I love blue and pink!!! 
 I find it so soothing, simply divine. 
I have a lot of gray in my house!
How do you feel about it???
