After Monday’s post I’ve decided to incorporate more stripes in my life. Why not? They’re timeless and classic.
I can’t believe I didn’t include a picture of West Elm’s Striped shower curtain in Monday ‘s post, Big Bold Stripes. I think I’m going to have to order one in Navy or Gray for my apartment… It also comes in yellow but I’m not really a yellow person.
They told me that it would arrive at the end of February. And then I got an email from West Elm saying the backorder was pushed back until the end of April. I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get it :( I have not had a coffee table in my apartment. Ever. I’ve only lived in it for 8.5 months). I have been focusing on trying to be smart and waiting for the right piece. And I thought I found it. So please, West Elm, send me my table!
Needless to say it is no longer available even for backorder (what a shame!). I placed the order in February when it was on sale. However, the Foxed mirror side table is still available and just as pretty!

and love these antique mirror square tiles all over the wall as a backsplash
I just bought this rug from Ikea a few weeks ago. It fits perfectly next to my bed. My feet love landing on it first thing when I get out of bed in the morning. Especially in this cold weather.
If I had more rooms in my apartment I would definitely want to invest in one of West Elm‘s Moroccan inspired rugs for my living room (and move my sisal rug to another room). And I would walk around barefoot all the time.
And they even have a few rugs that are handmade in Morocco…

On a side note, I continue to be impressed by the new designs that West Elm has come out with recently. [I even devoted a blog post to it! And mentioned their pretty lighting in another post.]
Anyway, let’s look at some rooms that rock Moroccan rugs…
I’m loving this one with the pink and blue…

Those Moroccans make some pretty funky rugs, don’t they?
I’m thinking of changing out the light fixture that is over the sink in my kitchen. Why is it that I can make decisions for other people all day every day, but when it comes to making decisions for myself, I have to ask everyone I know and dwell on what to do until it’s too late?!?
I’m not sure if it is my modern furniture phase, but I’ve noticed that West Elm has been offering some exceptionally chic furniture lately! Even better is the way they showcase it on their website. In the picture above, I LOVE those white washed paneled walls! Where do they take these photographs? I could totally picture myself living in them…
Hands down, the best part about West Elm is that it’s AFFORDABLE. Let’s go shopping!
Love these rustic storage tables – side table, console, and coffee table. Hidden storage space is always nice. And those steel legs add to the rustic beauty.
The Zigzag dhurrie rugs have always been favorites of mine. And you can’t beat the price. The contrast trim adds a touch of color. A zigzag rug could liven up a simple/boring room so easily. For example:
And how bout that amazing cluster glass pendant? I absolutely love it. It’s like a knock off Lindsey Adelman fixture. You may have heard me mention her before (sarcasm). You can get the look of a Lindsey Adelman fixture for literally a small fraction of the price at West Elm.
Have always been obsessed with this Hand-blocked Leaf quilt. Seriously, if I hadn’t just gotten amazing new pillow shams, I would totally go for this quilt.
