Summer outdoor entertaining with West Elm

A little outdoor entertaining with West Elm

All you need is a portable table think trestle legs and a table top

decorated with some foraged nature finds

think about a signature cocktail

an easy menu (ideally plant based)

set the table with some colourful basics and some metallic cutlery for some everyday luxe

when creating a table setting I always think about creating layers and adding height

west elm – new modern

Here’s a look at the new West Elm 2017 collection “The new Modern” Johanna Uurasjarvi, West Elm’s new Creative Director, is bringing a fresh vision to the brand, refining the brand’s design philosophy and its very definition of “modern”. While West Elm has always been about modern style, they’re evolving along with the way we live today. The collection still has element of mid century influences and is colourful but refined, causal but polished, the evolution feels slightly more sophisticated, the collection is in store and online now (in Australia)

west elm shelfie

Storage is key for work or home or in my case both.

Shelving is great for storage and for display. These West Elm White Washed wood and metal shelves do the trick for me at home. They are on wheels and have great deep/high shelves perfect for me to display and store all of the items i need.

West Elm Shelves pictured all other items from my home/office

west elm bedroom update

It’s getting a little cooler here in Sydney, so with the change of seasons its the perfect time for a little bedroom update. With a little help from the awesome team at West Elm

Some new bed linen, a new bedside table or a lamp, nothing drastic (although I’m thinking i want to paint the walls grey) is needed just a freshen up. In winter its great to add layers and texture. Im not a fan of a bright bedroom colour palette. I always stick to greys, blues whites and neutral or perhaps a soft stripe. The bedroom should be a relaxing dreamy space.

Why not cosy up and update your bedroom

Bedlinen, cushions, lamp and bedside all from West Elm
