A bit of West Elm love

Dear West Elm,
In the past I have told you how I love the styling in  your catalogs but not your products as much.
Well I am writing to tell you that all changed with the latest catalog to arrive on my snow covered steps.  Hey, guys you got it so right!  I am feeling the need to run right out and get these beautiful vase to add to my already overflowing pottery collection-
And not only do I want these prints by John-Paul Philippe but paint addict that I am, I am now feeling the desire to paint my walls this amazing blue! 
 (that's between you and I darling, please don't tell the Mr.)
I already have a chaise I love - but now I feel the need to cheat on my chaise with this stunning Windsor one.  Oh and can I have the artwork above it as well?
I'll be a good girl and keep my couch but add these watercolor pillows.
I don't want to appear needy but- If there is any way you could include this room- (I have been craving steel windows just like these for years),
and this little dining room as well- I would adore you for ever!!
XOXO, Raina


  1. I'm with you, Raina!! Have always been a little concerned about West Elm furniture quality however. Seems to be priced one step above Ikea and just wondering if their stuff is built to last like their sister stores, Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma Home. Do you know, or have much experience with the durability of their goods?? I bought a WE bed frame that's quite lovely, but the pre-drilled holes were off a bit :( Also, bought some lovely bedding - quality is about 200 thread count, but the print was just so pretty I had to have it (and the price right).

  2. Jilly-
    I have bought a few things and in general they hold up well- def. much better then Ikea. I did get a Parsons table that came broken but they were great about exchanging it and the new one was fine.
