My West Elm Love List

West Elm is without a doubt one of my favorite stores. I died and went to heaven when the Milwaukee West Elm opened in the 3rd Ward. And although Caleb & I take months to decide on a piece of furniture or decoration for our home, every time we purchase something we are completely satisfied and love our home even more.

Since I am such a fan, I figured why not start a periodic West Elm Love List featuring new releases or timeless pieces I own or am just super-in-love with.

So here goes; my first West Elm Love List!

  1. Modern Dresser: Inspired by Scandinavian modernism, our Modern Dresser marries a simple silhouette and minimal hardware with playfully angled legs in a warm pecan finish. We just ordered ours yesterday. I can’t wait for it to arrive!
  2. Luna Chair: Its oversized, rounded frame offers a comfortably cradling seat that invites you to curl up and settle in with a good book. We have ours at our photography studio in: Twisted Slub, Nightshade. (Navy)
  3. Diffuser: West Elm’s Naturalist Homescent Collection comes in a range of nature-inspired scents. We have one of these at the studio and one in my home office. The scent carries throughout the upstairs hallway and it is lovely, not over powering. 
  4. Slope Leather Bar + Counter Stools: These slope Leather Stools curve in both the seat and back for extra comfort and their top-grain aniline-dyed leather upholstery develops a beautiful patina over time.
  5. Modern Nightstand: Inspired by Scandinavian modernism, our Modern Nightstand marries a simple silhouette and minimal hardware with playfully angled legs in a warm pecan finish. We have two in our bedroom to anchor each side of our bed. 
  6. Mobile Chandelier: With its contemporary shape and adjustable arms, our Mobile Chandelier adds intrigue to any space. Pair it with clear, oversized bulbs for a modern look. We have ours hanging in our living room.

My Spotify Playlist – Working Tunes

Here is my most recent editing/blogging playlist; thank you Spotify!
