It's no secret that I love West Elm, so I love checking out their new stuff and hearing about their brand. I brought my camera and took some quick pics to remember it by! Here are some summery faves...
I just absolutely loved their gardening stuff. I have virtually no gardening skill but I'm learning, and I really love the fresh look of all the gardening stuff in the store, especially since I hadn't been there since around the holidays! Look how fresh!
Then we got to check out the Market line. Portland is one of only a few stores with this line, so we're lucky... brand new collection of, as the West Elm PR gal described it, "everything you'd expect at the neighborhood general store." With some vintage flair, definitely.
My coworker who lives in a cute '20's house with a tiny kitchen loooooves the Smeg fridge, and I could seriously need one of the old-fashioned canvas aprons.
The Market shops at different stores are going to carry local products for those regions, too, which is super cool. So if you have a favorite brand of artisan food product (we have so many in Portland!!), they're taking recommendations at your local West Elm Market!
Definitely got me inspired for clean, simple pieces in our house, and excited for some container gardening and indoor plants. And love the vintagey looks, too.
Also, I'm so glad I went to the preview event and so excited by the example West Elm has created with their blogger, author, and other partnerships. It's so cool to talk with local bloggers and PR pros about blogging and collaboration ideas!
