Melia and I had a girl's trip to Portland for the weekend. Besides all the fun we had/got into we did have a goal for the trip: Melia's new home decor!  Couchs, accent chairs, coffee tables, lamps, gathering inspiration for patterns, colors, and design styles. Here's a few items from one of our favorite stores, West Elm, which does a great job following design trends and incorporating them into more livable & affordable pieces. I love that in Portland, Design Within Reach is only two blocks from West Elm. How fitting! It was a perfect weekend. Thanks friend (:

Tulip Leather Chair & Sweep Armchair
grey Sweep Leather Armchair

Y-Base Marble Coffee Table

Terra Cotta Table Lamp (one of Melia's fav)
Adjustable Metal Floor Lamp
Glass Link Chandelier
DWR Etch Pendant designed by Tom Dixon
West Elm's Zig Zag bath rug. Now in Melia's bath (:
Love this pattern. We were going back and forth on the color. Decided on slate, great contrast.
love new sheets.
love new pillowcases. especially grey & white stripes. had to have them.

Wait until you see the couch we found...I can't wait to start putting it altogether. Happy Monday!


  1. I heart the re-cap, it's fun to see things pulled together in one spot. Best girls weekend ever.

  2. I love the sweep armchair in the first photo!

    Can't wait to see it all together - I love all of the inspiration!

  3. Glad you enjoyed your trip down here :) The Pearl is certainly the perfect place to see some fun furniture! Did you happen to stumble upon Hive? It's one of my favorites!
