West Elm’s Fall Preview

One of the emails that I look forward to receiving are the sneak previews of new items that the stores I love will be releasing.  Here are the items I’m looking forward to seeing at West Elm on July 19th, 2011.



Furniture window shopping

Wow…. I feel so lost here in the blogging world.  I haven’t visited it quite awhile and I hate that.  Life has just taken over my fun side and I truly want to get back into sharing my thoughts and ideas interior decorating and design.  For the first time in a long time I actually had time to walk around different shops in Toronto with my Starbucks non-fat no-foam latte in hand and just drool over all the beautiful furniture and inspiring ideas out there.

Here are some things that caught my eye.

I heart Home Sense

I was in Home Sense this weekend in search of lamps for a client and as usual I found something spectacular.  Only thing was it wasn’t a lamp…. it was a rug!
Mark has been in search of a new rug for his new house for quite some time now and when we went to IKEA one day, he decided to try out one of the hide rugs.  Unfortunately, it didn’t do much for the room so he returned it.

When I was at Home Sense this weekend I found a gorgeous 100% chenille rug that had a beautiful pattern on it.  I emailed Mark a picture and told him to go see it in person which he did the following morning.

Just as I had hoped, he loved it and he bought it!  I think it looks great in their living room.
