Its Monday, and boy am I having a heard time getting going! I’ll just blame it on the lack of sunshine and the drilling and sawing in my front porch that has been going on for weeks. Although I am super excited to finally have a fenced in front porch! Anyway, back to the blog. I took a virtual spin over at West Elm, and if you haven’t checked out their site lately, do stop by. They are having tons of summer sales and are introducing many new products. A few from their site that not only caught my eye but are pretty nice to the wallet as well.
First up are these cute little animal figurines. Perhaps its my lack of pet these days, but I am loving little additions like these for shelves and little nooks. The Sheesham Birds are made from well, sheesham and come in two sizes, perfect for little additions in any room. The Narrative Animals are a little more animal like in shape but have a touch of irony. White figures with funny decals really make the look, available are a rabbit and top hat, a squirrel and nut and a tortoise with a hare.
Moving over to all things glass, I am loving these Gourd Table Lamps and Hurricane Lanterns. Perfect for tabletops, these will be sure to add some shine and light to any room. The gourd lamps come in either a clear of charcoal tint and come with a natural linen shade. The hurricane lanterns are a perfect accessory for an outdoor table or casual dinners inside. Made from glass and iron, these are a delicate yet sturdy addition.
One of the most common questions I get asked is how to make a big impact on a small budget for bedrooms. I am a fond believer that a headboard can make or break a room, and I am loving these two for modern rooms. On the left, a Metal-Inlay headboard and the right is the Random Cutout headboard. Each would give your room a new focal point and a place to rest all those pillows against!
