My first impression of the store was awe. I love the natural feel to it even though there is industrial work clearly all around and it is very modern. It feels like home now that I think of it. Which I suspect is right on the money since they want you mix match and play with all of the items in the store!
As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted warmly, the staff is extremely helpful and kind and the most important thing. They are HAPPY to be there. They CLEARLY enjoy what they do and passion is contagious!
Have I mentioned lately how obsessed I am with terrariums? Seriously, when I get my own place there WILL be one in almost every room. I walk into the gardening section and BAM terrarium stuff everywhere. Oh I was like a kid in a candy store! Their Glass terrariums are absolutely gorgeous and while I personally love the D.I.Y. aspect of creating a terrarium West Elm provides fully created terrariums so you don’t even have to get your hands dirty and believe me these set ups were GOREGEOUS. See for yourself.
What I find absolutely amazing is that West Elm has a monogram feature if you purchase from the web. Can you imagine? His and Her pillow cases oh the endless possibilities of labeling your items and the personalized touch is something everyone seems to love these days.
West Elm is moving companies in a direction of sustainability and creativity and I was surprised to see many affordable options where I initially thought that West Elm was out of my “budget range” turns out this is a great company to find those finishing touches for your rooms and if you subscribe to their newsletter they have sales running all of the time. All in all even if you decide not to purchase, I think it’s a fantastic place to go and get inspired!
Here's a picture of my awesome boyfriend helping hold my stuff while I switch between photos and note taking. Power to the worlds multi-taskers! I also brought one of these cute little hedgehog planters home I couldn't help myself it was too cute. Only $12 for the planter!
