I’d been a bit bummed when I’d heard that West Elm’s grand opening was scheduled for tomorrow, because I was already booked all day with client appointments and had wanted to be all geek about being one of the first shoppers to swing those doors wide.  So I was pretty stoked to get an email from Abigail in West Elm’s press office, offering me a sneak peek today!

Check it out…


New coral pillows!


Love their new citrus mint home fragrance.  And I want this twine ball topiary too, but I’ll have to break that out as a DIY project because they’re just props and not for sale (*sniff*).

This beautiful wooden pear in the foreground is actually a wind-up musical piece:

New for the urban rocker!

My new love: the Geo Side Table!

The new Vintage Butterfly bedding reminds me of John Derian pretties.

The skinny is that there will be some mondo gift cards awarded tomorrow for the grand opening, so follow West Elm on Twitter and Facebook tomorrow to jump on that!  (And follow me on Twitter and Facebook, because it’s the right thing to do.)

Thanks, Abigail, for the preview!
