Well, folks, we have arrived. We finally have a West Elm here in Vancouver! I was beyond excited.....it is the icing-on-the-decor-store cake.
And lucky me, I was invited to the media preview night the day before the store was opened. Not only were we fed delicious appies and wine but we had 10% off the whole store! It was a fabulous night, dj's spinning up tunes, wine, canapes, and enjoying the company other bloggers, who I now consider friends, to ham up in the photo booth!
I was so overwhelmed by the deliciousness of the store that I need to go back, I have a few gift cards that need spending. I am in love with the West Elm aesthetic, so up my alley. The earthiness, the texture, the layers and the whimsy are decor perfection!
But here are a few photos from the night, I snapped them with my iPhone so they aren't the most amazing photos.
Fabulous table setting idea, load up on pillar candles, bottles, hurricane lanterns to create a cozy atmosphere.
West Elm has the BEST lighting.

Another fabulous light fixture.....
The satellite bar.
I am in LOVE with this pendant. Not sure how it would work in my kitchen, but I love it!
Trend alert: Off centered mat
Cinnamon sticks for breakfast anyone?
And.... HELLOOO! Where have you been all my life?
So make sure the next time you visit downtown Vancouver, pop into West Elm, you won't be disappointed!
West Elm is located @ 2947 Granville Street
