The New West Elm Catalog is Here!

Postcard design by Anatomy.

A treat was waiting in the mailbox today! The new West Elm catalog! I nearly fainted after reading it. West Elm has really outdone themselves this time. This is by far their best catalog!

How appropriate. They were reading my mind. Many of their pieces could fit into my new Minimal Bohomo Retro-Mod Asian/Moroccan design. And, even though it is trite for a place to be decorated hastily from only one source, I could see my place redone in almost all West Elm. (No wonder some fortunate people have more than one home.)

I love the following items. Oh, I see they are reading my mind again. casasugar is having a West Elm giveaway contest to celebrate the launch of its new site! I quickly went and created a wish list, but I actually had trouble spending the $5,000! I really don't need so much stuff, but it would be great to replace some of my furniture. Some of the things I put on the wish list are actually gifts for my lovely sister-in-law. But don't tell anyone about the contest, let's keep it our secret!

My favorite piece in the catalog is by far this lamp:

Isn't this the most beautiful lamp in the whole world? Would look great with my new style. Would also look great in my sister-in-law's home. Since it's way out of my price range, the contest is my only hope.

If I were doing my place totally in West Elm and IF money were no object, here's what I love. Red sectional. Two Parsons desks. (Who doesn't want one or more of these perfect desks? My office area is in such disarray, I really need these.) Chunky console.

And, of course, pottery.....

I hate to add celedon and mustard to my place now that I've settled on fushia and turquoise (I think). But wouldn't these pieces look cute with these cheapies that I saw at Old Time Pottery ($10.99 - $16.99)?

Here is a teaser not available on West Elm's website - the large white vase on the floor to the right. A fabulous reinterpretation of a temple vase. Love it!

Another teaser. The foo dogs are the latest "it" accessory, but I don't really like them, I think they have ugly faces. Until now that is. I love this groovy foo dog from West Elm. I had to scan this puppy, because he's not available on line. I might have to make a trip to a West Elm store. I love iconic images reinterpreted. Especially, Chinese Communist propoganda, but that's for another post....

Lastly, I would love to have this capis lamp for my bedroom, which clearly goes with the Hindu/Morrocan vibe.

Very romantic. Hmm. Now is my style Romantic Bohemian Modern Retro-Mod Asian/Moroccan? Oh, oh, forgot about the minimalism....
