Home Living: West Elm Summer Preview

It’s no secret that we are quite smitten with West Elm. We especially love when they roll out new seasonal goodness and amazing collaborations with talented artists for their collections. We were recently invited to preview the new summer wares and boy, what fun we had dreaming up uses for everything from silk screen printed pillows to gorgeous woven rugs in vibrant colors, nautical stripes and all sorts of lovely goods for summertime entertaining. A huge thanks to Lauren Pryor and Jessica Packard {of With Love, Design} for inviting us and for inspiring us all! What fun! We finally got to meet the sweet Kristina Gulino from Nook & Sea in person and visit with Jenn of Style Your Life. There are far too many favorites to share them all, but here are some of our picks we positively adored!

These colors! You know us – the stripes and hues of blue, ranging from aqua to deep nautical-inspired navy, are right up our alley!

We were utterly impressed with the collections from talented South African artist and photographer Clinton Friedman. His unique work graces ceramic plates {think pincushion protea} and silk pillows and it’s vibrant and beautiful.

We loved the intentional mismatching of this bedroom vignette. A variety of patterns and colors came together to create an eclectic bedroom scene, topped off with an ultra special Moroccan wedding blanket.

If this setting doesn’t say summer, we don’t know what does. We can envision lounging for hours poolside listening to the palm trees blowing in the breeze with a spiked lemonade in hand….

Too cute for words.

Envision one of these hand-painted vessels brimming with white clouds of peonies or hydrangea blooms set atop an Al Fresco table. Lovely, right?

We took nearly one hundred images – every piece can be used in so many  ways both for entertaining during the summertime and indoors. Hop on over to West Elm to see more of the goodness! But first, we’d love to hear if you have a favorite piece from what we shared!
