This morning we got up, wrapped up warm and headed over to the new West Elm store on Tottenham Court Road for a blogger breakfast and tour of the shop before it opens tomorrow. We were given a tour by West Elm’s wonderful creative director Vanessa Holden, who talked us through each section of the store and their three Christmas themes.
We fell in love with their Mid-Century pieces and these beautifully dressed beds…
Our favourite section was the West Elm Market, where you can get all your kitchen supplies and an amazing selection of stylish household items, from laundry baskets to bins…. AND you can look at all of this while you grab a coffee and pastry. There are loads of items in this section that are perfect for gifts, too, which is great with Christmas coming up. How cute are these bowls? They’ll make great, inexpensive gifts!
We really recommend a trip to West Elm! It’s opening its doors at 08:30 tomorrow, so stop by, grab a coffee and have a look around. Follow them on twitter @westelmuk to keep up to date with what’s on. After Christmas they are going to start running creative workshops, from photography to crafts. It’s great to find a store that’s promoting creativity and we’re looking forward to attending some classes in the New Year.
